Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So I've been thinking about what to say that would give people an
accurate picture of who I am and what I am looking to find. I think
I would have to say one of my most prominent qualities is that I am
loyal. If I am your friend, I am your friend for life. If I am in a
commited relationship, I'm commited to it and to making it work. I
have friends I have had since childhood and I can honestly say I
would do anything for them. I feel the same level of commitment to
family. My children are so important to me. Being my children's
father is my number one priority. I have fifty percent custody of
them because being involved in their daily life is so necessary to
me. This means I go to their events, I helped them with their
homework, I play with them and show them new experiences, I tuck
them in at night. I hope to find someone who feels that same level
of commitment and loyalty, as I want my next marriage to be my
That being said, I also like to have a lot of fun in life. I love
surfing and snow boarding and boating. I enjoy listening to a band
play or hanging out at a bar for a few drinks or watching a game at
home. I am an avid swimmer and do this most mornings before
My career as a teacher is very fulfilling as well. I enjoy helping
children learn and achieve their full potential. I love when I can
inspire a student to work harder and learn what it feels like to
learn and achieve.
I have a witty sense of humor. Sometimes it's a little dry and
sarcastic. I enjoy stimulating conversation and a person who can
match my witty banter and be playful in conversation.
What I really want is to find the true love of my life. I'm not
willing to settle so if that takes years, then it takes years. I
hope it doesn't though. I want that feeling of coming home to
someone and telling them about my day and listening to their day
and sharing the good times and the bad. Someone who truly is my
best friend. Someone with whom I share common interests. Someone
who is smart and independent and fun. Someone I can enjoy life
with, who can lean on me and be my rock as well. I know that sounds
cliche, but it is true.
I want to live my life with no regrets, to be able to look back at
the end of my life and know that I lived it to the fullest, that my
relationships with loved ones were happy and fulfilling and that I
put my energy into the most important things in life... the people
If any of this sounds like what you're looking for and like what is
important to you, I'd love to hear from you.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I take care of my two children during the weeks I have them. During
my off weeks, I still go to their events and activities. This is my
I am a teacher and put a lot of energy into doing that well.
When I'm not at work or with my children, I am doing different
things at different times. You may find my on the slopes for a day
of snowboarding, at the beach for some early morning surfing,
working on a home improvement project, or spending some time with
family or friends.
I also enjoy reading and listening to music. I swim to keep in
shape most mornings.
In addition, I'm putting in time and effort in the dating arena,
hoping to find true love at some point.
Oh, and I try to get some sleep here and there also.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Well, I think I'm a great teacher. I've been doing this for over
20+ years now and I have developed a great balance of caring and
discipline that enables my students to reach their potential, which
is what I push them to do.
I am also good at being a friend. I have many friends from high
school and college that I still am very close to.
I'd like to think my kids would say I'm a good father. I work very
hard to try to provide my children with love, stability, and
guidance. Being consistent in their life is a priority to me.

How to find time to make dinner after working all day ;)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I don't have a typical Friday. If I have my kids I'm usually
hanging out with them, watching a movie, playing a game, or just
relaxing together and catching up.
If I don't have my kids, I could be out with friends, playing
poker, or just hanging out at home relaxing after a busy week.
