Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Wow.... How to begin..... I guess I should give you a couple
spoilers. I'm divorced and a single dad. If that doesn't scare you
away, keep reading. I have my son half the week. When he's with me,
my focus is on him. When he's not with me, I can get in some
It's been a couple years since the divorce. It was a nice break to
get myself sorted out and really focus on being a dad. Now I'd like
to share some of my time with someone special. While I'm not sure
how I feel about jumping right back into a serious relationship,
I'd like to start by meeting someone, making connections and seeing
where things go from there. And don't worry - The last thing I'm
looking for is a rebound relationship. :)
I think it's safe to describe me as stable, secure, level headed
and kind. Does this make me too much of a square, lol? I am
literally an Eagle Scout after all. Funny, when I was growing up I
always wanted to be the Han Solo type but knew I was much more Luke
Skywalker. (Square and a nerd I guess).
I don't like games or drama - but then again who admits that they
do? I also don't consider myself the "extreme" type. It seems like
there are a lot of those profiles on this site. I love to hike,
bike and swim but I don't have a lot of pictures as proof. I
laughed when I saw so many pics of "dudes" showing their abs when I
went looking at my competition. Isn't it more fun to find out
what's under someone's shirt in person? Besides pics can lie :).
Oh, and yes I do look good with my shirt off, lol ;).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
The career thing is sorted out for me. I have a job that I love
that pays me well and keeps me comfortable. Right now I'm having
fun being a dad. My son is almost three so we are both learning our
roles as father and son. Ive learned that being a single dad adds
so much more to our relationship. This will continue to be the best
and most rewarding adventure of my life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I don't know about "really" good, but I love playing and writing
music. I play guitar, bass and I sing in a local band. While we
don't get out as much as we used to, we still manage to play out
about once a month.

Not sure ....... I've heard a lot of things. What do you think?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
How do I lie about my recent taste in books...... Lol. I've ready a
lot of guilty pleasures in the last few years. Dan Brown, Harry
Potter, Robert Jordan to name a few of the guilty parties. I'm
currently reading Keith Richards' autobiography.
My music taste is pretty varied. Beatles, Decemberists, Taj Mahal,
Wilco, Ryan Adams, Pavement, Claude Debussy, the list goes
I love podcasts too: Nerdist, Doug loves movies, how stuff works,
how did this get made, smodcast, Hollywood babble on, Adam
I like comedies and I'm a sucker for action and science fiction
movies (most guys are). What is it about explosions and shooting at
people after making quippy remarks? Having said that I do love a
good documentary and have been known to enjoy a rom com or two. I
probably shouldn't admit that I cried at the end of the Notebook.
:). Some of my favorite movies include Big Lebowski, Spinal Tap,
Help and Hard Days Night (Beatles), Back to the Future, and
anything from Wes Anderson.
"When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness
was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I
wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down 'happy'. They told me I
didn't understand the assignment, and I told them they didn't
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
French Press coffee
Triple milled French soap
Cozy yet fashionable sweaters
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I only discuss those things face to face. It's a more intimate
setting - and there's no paper trail ;)
