A non typical Jersey lad who moved to Croydon PA at the end of June. Starting a new job in a new town and a fresh start!
Here’s to hoping honesty has its own inherent charms. As of October 10th 2012 I was legally divorced. It just so happens October 10th was also my wedding day all those years ago. How's that for irony?
It may seem early to put myself out here (this being a prevailing wisdom), but I have had a few divorced buddies get too comfortable too fast holding up in their man caves and turning into woman haters while playing online computer games and eating order-in junk food. That is not the way I plan to go and at 54, I’m not going to exile myself to the wilderness when Ms. Right could just walk on by.
After a long marriage you kind of have to relearn dating skills long since stored in the attic. This is a shy and awkward time (I am really bad at breaking the ice), but I’m hoping to stay connected to people and leave the shells to turtles and the cocoons to the butterflies.
Ok, you should know I have some well done (well executed) tattoos. No, I'm not a biker, a drug user, an ex-con, or rebel without a clue. I am an otherwise nice normal kind of guy. Yes even nice people get tattoos these days. You could say it's my one crazy, or wild thing since my divorce. Kind of a way to break out of a life of being shy. You may see them as edgy, but I see them as forms of art and expression. That said, they do not define who I am, they are not for everybody (I won't ask you to get one if you're not into them) and I don't think people should get them to promote hate, or just to shock their loved ones. I guess my outlook is that if I can't be an artist, I could be the canvas.
Very well, I admit it. The man of your dreams is out there. He's charming, witty, good looking and well groomed. He keeps himself in shape, smells really good and always knows how to dress. The downside is that he's gay......so what you're left with is guys like me!
By the way the "ape" photo IS ME so don't complain to okcupid!
