Time for a new chapter. Work decided they didn't need my particular skill set any more. I wish them well, time for a new journey.
I have had a lot of time to think about the following quote:
"When one door closes, another door opens; but we so often look so long and regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.”
― Alexander Graham Bell
I'm easy going man looking for a partner in crime. No reason to lie about the age (52) or the grey in the hair. Someone who has time for road trips, finding a new place to eat and experiment.
What does that mean? It goes an activity partner (aka a friend ) to up to a something more. Something more, that depends on a few things ; compatibility, chemistry, where you are at in life and where do you want to go. I don't think you can just figure that out in a few paragraphs on a web page.
These days i wonder since I am 52 and haven't been married yet. I am thinking that ship isn't going to sail. ;-) It's okay cause I am okay with me being me and where i am in life.
I am several different people depending on how you know me.
Non work setting, I am an easy going guy.
My work persona, I work in high tech. I have been working in that field professional for 34 years. Working in the field I am sometimes I have to be more assertive.
Currently, I am working on designing new computers systems that will be in use year to eighteen months from now.. So, I am an out of the box thinker on how to do things that either haven’t been done before or find a new and better way of doing them.
I'm active guy who is really a Seattle native. I can be found doing something most of time. I am not one of those people who can sit on the blanket on the beach or by the pool. I would be the person walking the beach, out fishing or doing something. I don’t like to lay there and get sunburned.
I like to play golf and fish when the weather is nice.
When the weather is not so nice, I like to bowl and work on digital photography. I like to travel south to Arizona to play golf when it’s been raining 2 months here in Seattle. A quick weekend trip to Vegas is nice too. However, I am not much of a gambler. I worked to hard to earn the money just to watch it disapear into chip tray quickly.
I work on computers so I spend a lot of time on them for work and for play as well.
I have a good sense of humor and I don't take myself too seriously. Laugher is the best medicine.
I am pretty much an open book. I will tell people most everything about me once I get to know you. However, I'm not the guy at the party who is telling everyone where i went on my last business or vacation trip. But if you ask, I’ll tell you all about it. :-)
So, is there a woman out there, there is looking for a partner in crime. A sense of humor is mandatory. The ability to let go and have fun as well have a serious side would be nice to haves. I don't smoke or hardly ever drink so if you are a excess compulsive on either of those. We probably aren't going to be a match.
So, I like kids but I don't have any of mine own. Now that I am older , I am thinking I am probably too old to be trying to have a baby with someone. If you already have kids I am okay with that. Starting a new family from scratch, I'm probably not the right person.
