Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So I guess it's about time for an update/rewrite. Been trying to
get back into this dating thing again for about 2 years now. What I
have noticed is that there are a lot of moving parts when it comes
to dating as a grown up. But, it's kinda like the lottery. You
can't win if you don't play.
I like to think I am pretty easy going and down to earth. I have
been told that I "do every day life well" and that "I'm the realist
person out". I'm still not certain I know what either of those
things means but I like to think they were said as compliments. I
am pretty liberal socially. I relate more to Bernie Sanders than
Hillary Clinton. I'm responsible, have a job and a descent credit
score. I'm told those things matter.
My idea of a good time is road tripping somewhere and staying in my
pop up camper or tent near a beach or lake and spending the days
paddling or hiking. I detest staying in hotels.
I just got back from a 29 day road trip with my 5 year old son.
Just the two of us all the way to Baja California and back in my
truck dragging a 15 year old camper behind. I was going to help out
with a school build and decided it would be our vacation. Saw the
Grand Canyon. It's really really big.
So that's me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Teaching. Learning. Observing. Exploring.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Teaching. Building things. Teaching kids how to build things.
Communicating. Being a father.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm bald. have been since I was like 27. I refuse to comb over or
try products. Haven't paid for a hair cut in nearly a decade. Also
I usually come off as a bit of a smart ass but I genuinely like
people and care about them, unless they suck. Really I just say
what I think is obvious. I don't like people that put up a front or
think they they are perfect and everyone else should try to be to.
I'm not perfect and not really interested in someone who is because
I will probably just disappoint them. I just think if we were more
honest with each other and quit trying to be perfect all the time
we could get along better.
