The strong, silent type, I'm not a big, loud talker. I am often deep in thought and wearing a scowl but my face softens when I make eye contact. I have a goofy sense of humor and usually see some degree of humor in every situation. I love animals as much as people, sometimes more so. Looking for companionship as I am newly returned to the area. I don't like to drink alcohol so much. Would love to find someone who is health-minded like myself. Love movies, walking/hiking, shooting pool, going to baseball games, playing golf... I have old-fashioned, good manners. I can talk like Donald Duck. I'm comfortable around kids. I don't like pretentiousness. Love exploring the city and people-watching.
What I’m doing with my life
These days I work as a finish carpenter for a woodworking company, remodeling and restoring old house interiors. The work is creative, exacting, physical and fun and I wake up excited to go to work. I know how rare that is and that makes me a fortunate man.
I’m really good at
fixing things, listening, golf, photography, dancing, shooting pool, carpentry and woodworking, meeting new people, clowning, puzzles, learning new things, people-watching, using public transportation, eating with chopsticks, playing with kids and pets...
The first things people usually notice about me
That I smile and look right at them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Cold Mountain, Silence of the Lambs, Talking Heads, Sushi, American Beauty, The Kite Runner, Slingblade, The English Beat, Fargo, R.E.M., Siddhartha, The Andy Griffith Show, The B-52s, The Police, DMB, Breaking Bad, The Prince of Tides, Pat Metheny Group, Shawshank Redemption, Seinfeld, The Honeymooners, Santana, that Shake it Off song. All music really, except hardcore rap, and Polka.
The six things I could never do without
Double shot of Espresso in the morning, good pair shoes, floss, other people and animals, annual baseball playoffs and world series, the coming of Spring following each Winter
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the future, the past, where I put my phone, the state of the world, and where is the love of my life and how can I find her
On a typical Friday night I am
with friends if possible, or maybe out somewhere people-watching, or at home reading a good book.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love disco
You should message me if
you're not too shy
