My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm friendly, outgoing, fun-loving and somewhat gregarious. :-)

What I'm looking for? I'm looking for someone to engage in conversations both meaningful and frivolous; to do things together, take walks in the park and ride bikes and watch the spring time bloom into summer or the leaves change color, to visit museums and share raucous laughter over coffee; someone to enjoy a movie together, to dine together at our favorite restaurants and to seek out new places; someone to share with me their favorite places; someone to relax with in front of the fireplace on a cold snowy night. someone to take a weekend road trip up north for no other reason than we felt like going; someone spontaneous who wants to join in the above and who will invite me to share in their adventures too;

In short, I'm looking for a friend, a companion, a date, a partner, and yes, a lover too. All of that, in my estimation, adds up to an awesome girlfriend.

I have been divorced for over a year now. I have a positive relationship with my ex as we navigate into our new lives as coparents of three teenage daughters (ages 16-20 yikes!) and a rambunctious eleven year old son.

I like chatting over coffee or drinks, or a nice walk around a park or a lake, perhaps a stroll through the MIA or MN History Center or the odd leisurely bike ride...if you do too, please message me and let me know when you're free.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
For a living I'm a mobile software architect and developent team lead. I design and write business enterprise software for mobile devices and have co-authored a book on the topic as well.

I occasionally travel for business (on weeks I don't have the kids.) but I still have plenty of time to meet new friends and grow relationships, perhaps with you?

I own my own home where I live with my kids on an alternating weekly cycle.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at writing software; I'm a woodturner by hobby and make bowls and some very good drop spindles, (you fiber types will know what I mean.) And I like to think I'm good at writing, but rarely have enough time for it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Generally, my eyes and shoulders, and sense of humor. Hopefully not the glare shining off my forehead...;-)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Lord of the Rings; anything by Patricia McKillip; A Song of Fire and Ice (Game of Thrones); I may need to branch out a bit.

Movies: I like most action adventure movies, and most anything by Pixar and Studio Ghibli. And anime too. I enjoy it and so do my kids so that is a win!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How best to introduce myself online and putting my best foot forward and also why "To Kill a Mockingbird" appears regularly in people's favorite books lists...

Lately, I've been wondering about the match percentages. How are they determined? Is there a point where the match percentage is too high? Is a 99% match really 10% better than a 90% match?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Generally hanging out with my kids on weeks that I have them (and they're not off on dates or something) or with my friends. Sometimes, catching a happy hour at Merlin's Rest or something...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
What's the most private thing that I'm willing to admit, after all the other private things that I'm not? Hmm, not sure how to answer that other than if you're curious about something, just ask.

I'm willing to admit that I saw the Pixar movie "Brave" by myself...and enjoyed it.

I'm also willing to admit that I will view a person's profile several times before introducing myself. Usually trying to decide when and what to say in that first message (if you've got any tips for this, please let me know). So please don't assume that I'm not interested if I don't say hello after visiting. Although, I must admit that I often make this assumption myself.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
- if my profile intrigues you.
- if you're up for meeting for coffee or drinks to see if there's any spark...I like spark!
- if you simply want to say hello.

I believe that all relationships, from casual acquaintances, to friends , to lovers and more, start with a conversation. Whether it begins with a simple hello, a clever introduction, or something's all about starting a conversation and seeing where it goes.

If you do too, let's start a conversation and see where it goes!
