First, I have two daughters, 11 and 13. They come first. If you don't understand that, move on. Next, when I am not being dad, I like to have fun. I will walk on the beach, go for a hike and all that, but a dive bar on a Saturday night is more my cup of tea. I remember the 70s and 80s with fondness, and still enjoy a party.
Next, I am a mental guy. That means that I think about everything. Intellectual is such a limited term, but if you meet me you will see that there is pretty much nothing that I have not thought about. If you don’t think about the world in detail, you will be uncomfortable with me.
I admit I have been frustrated trying to find someone on these dating sites. What I have found is that women my age are not interested in someone with kids. Women my age want to travel and be free. That’s cool, but it is not my life.
A good match for me is a woman with kids in middle school. Someone who understands those priorities, and needs a guy who will support and understand that. I guess that means that I should be dating women in their 40s. My ex-wife is 11 years younger than me, so I guess that makes sense.
If you have kids, I am a really good guy to have in your life. I love kids, have amazing patience, and wisdom that every tween, teen or young adult can benefit from. I understand that kids whose moms are dating have special needs and need a gentle touch. I can do that.
