My experience with online dating leads me to believe that I'm someone that you have to get to know before you find out just how uniquely charming I am. I'm a bit of an introvert and can be fairly awkward until I'm comfortable around someone new. Probably not the best way to "sell" myself, but I can only be who I am, and I'm very happy with that. However, if you're the patient type, I think that you may find yourself pleasantly surprised. I will say that I'm a pretty awesome dad.
I'm pretty laid back, and tend to take things as they come, I'm not a big planner. Easygoing without being a doormat. I'm into outdoor activities, biking and hiking, just did my first backpacking excursion, and kayaking is a new thing that I'm enjoying. I do tend to have more of a twisted sense of humor. I'm always up to try something new, although it is difficult for me if I have a preconceived idea. I enjoy most types of music (typically not country, but see the previous sentence). I am also a full-time single dad right now to a great son that is the most important thing in my life.
I'm looking for someone that I enjoy spending time with, and wants to share the adventure of exploring new places and things, while being OK with doing things apart on occasion. I'm looking for someone that I can have an intellectual conversation with. Someone that is considerate and kind. I have a pretty big heart, and am loyal to my friends, and am looking for the same. I don't do jealousy or possessiveness, and expect the same in return. And of course the usual stipulation about no games or drama (aren't we a little too old for that by now?).
So here's the deal: I'm not looking to "hook up", or a one night stand. I'd like to get to know you and have a friendship. If we can't just hang out together, then there's no point in taking it further. If that sounds good to you too, then please send me a message.
Oh, and I guess I should add that I'm currently separated, but not planning to get back with or pining for my ex, and we live in different states. Just thought you should know.
