I'm a devoted father of 3 girls ages 16, 19, and 22. I enjoy doing a variety of things and would welcome new ideas and excitement. Being able to share things, talk, and spend time together with a companion I can be myself with would be wonderful. Getting to know anyone isn't a one date event...it takes time and I'm willing to invest that in you. I must say that I'd rather meet as soon as possible instead of using e-mail. I just find that getting know someone through e-mail to be so cold and impersonal...the personal touch seems better. I'm a retired High School Math, Science, and Computer Teacher who went to work as a Software Technician at a wonderful company, but now looking elsewhere.
FYI - I'm not into BBW women or those that are close to that. Nor do I do long distance relationships, if mapquest says over 1 hour away then I don't feel things will work out, sorry. Also, I'm not a very religious person.
For a first date: Meeting in a relaxed environment, something casual where both people can let there hair down, open up, and really talk. Maybe the park, but whatever it is let's figure it out together, I don't believe in dominanting a relationship.
What I’m doing with my life
Typical Day: After work I take care of my kids, my house, the car, etc. Somewhere in there I eat, relax, and watch some TV or a movie. Now if I had that special someone I would be more active and doing more fun things.
Other: We go on vacations, bowl (at times), shop (with 3 girls I've learned to love it), eat out, DJ (parties, renunions, weddings, etc.), read a little, fix or upgrade the house, and sometimes do a hobby or two.
I’m really good at
being organized, thinking things through, being loyal and honest, being straightforward (blunt), managing money, loving my family, and if there's anything else you tell me. This question makes anyone sound like they have an enormous ego.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have no idea, but I'd be curious to know.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies/Shows - Science-Fiction, Action/Adventure, Comedies, and
Music - Classic oldies, Pop, Rock, Rock 'n Roll, and some
Food - Everything so far, except Japanese and Greek (though I'm
working on it). I really want to enjoy all varieties.
The six things I could never do without
1. My kids (at some point in the future my significant other will jointly hold this spot)
2. My parents and siblings
3. Being happy
4. Place to live
LOL - I'm not sure this is what was intended for this question, but today I'm feeling ultrapractical.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what life will be like or could be like if that significant other were in my life. Next, I worry about putting my kids through college, and whether or not Gov. Snyder is going to allow me to keep my pension.
On a typical Friday night I am
I am spending time with my children - doing homework, eating,
watching a movie/TV, etc.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I need a passionate, engaging, desirable, intelligent woman. I want to communicate, share ideas, and thoughts. Have a partnership. Age is a state of mind more than a number so whether 41 or 55 it doesn't matter.
You should message me if
You are a person who would like to be in a relationship and have
the following traits: honesty, loyalty, passion, and
family-oriented. You are an intelligent and upfront person who's
life has time for a significant other without having to squeeze him
into your schedule. My priority is to find and spend time with you
and I need your priority to be the same for this to work. If you
don't intend on actually meeting in person pass me by.
