I think I'm at that age where I know who I am and what I want. Having said that, I will warn you that I am one of the last remaining good guys (no, I'm not the bad boy type that many seem to like) and will kill (not literally) you with kindness. Can nice guys finish first?
What I’m doing with my life
Just progressing through life with a job (hint, I work with kids) I love and out of work passions (a good combination of active and creative) that keep me going.
I’m really good at
In my spare time I am a semi-professional musician (people do pay
me to perform, but I don't do music as my primary job) and like to
write and sing songs with an island feel. I have lots of songs I
wrote about a few of my exes (while we were dating although I did
write one after I broke up with someone) so you might be
While I am passionate about music, I don't have any false
aspirations of becoming the next Justin Bieber (no thanks). Other
than that and despite my advanced age, I am still very fast and am
good at keeping myself in shape. I recently tried one of those
balance boards for the first time and was able to do it right away.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably that I am very easy to get along with. I get along with everyone. People are always surprised at my age as I do look a lot younger than I am. It's weird, I've never been complimented on my eyes, however, in the last couple years, I have had a ton of compliments. Is it possible my eyes have changed?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Whenever Shawshank Redemption or The Departed come on, I cannot
stop watching. Otherwise, The Alchemist, Where the Red Fern Grows,
Memento, Usual Suspects, This American Life, The Police, Sublime,
Big Head Todd and the Monsters, Stevie Wonder...
The six things I could never do without
My health (love being active and anything that takes away from that would make me sad)
A good taqueria (I could probably eat Mexican food every day)
Running/Trail shoes (I like running up hills and stairs)
My surfboard (I'm an addict)
A tasty beer (in moderation of course)
Mints (Must have fresh breath)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
When I can get a good sweat going. Yes, I love to be active. Otherwise, at night I always am thinking of my tea (love me some Earl Grey with some cream) I get in the morning. Oh, and when I can get on my surfboard again.
On a typical Friday night I am
I love happy hour and the idea of getting out, but getting in at a
decent hour so that I can get up early on Saturday and do something
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I do have a cat from a previous relationship. He is pretty cool and happens to be huge (20lbs).
You should message me if
You are looking for a really good guy.
You will tell me when I have spinach stuck in my teeth.
You can laugh at yourself.
You have a heart of gold.
At the end of the day, it really comes down to whether we have a connection or not. I am hopeful to find someone I can connect with.
If you are interested, please do message me.
Bonus if you'll ride a roller coaster with me.
