Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
[This is a rewrite, now that I know better]
My self summary. I was born in South Carolina, a real Mayberry type
of town. Moved a lot so it was natural I went into the military
when schooling was done. While serviing I traveled the world, got a
dual BA (economics/poly sci) with every intention to become a
lawyer, until I met a few.
Lots of changes later, I have a small office where I primarily
provide small businesses working capital. Stifle the yawn, I won't
go into that any further.
I can make a mean manicotti or braciole, but can't grill a steak or
make fried chicken fried right.
I play great acoustical guitar as long as you're half way through a
bottle of wine first.
I own my own car free and clear (apparently that's an issue for a
lot of you.)
I do work out regularly and recently have really gotten into
cycling, both touring and commuting.
I'm a christian but not religious. It's not a contradiction.
Religions are man made concepts. Christianity comes from God.
Be warned, if we go out, I open doors, pick up the check, make sure
you get to your door safe and don't talk about old relationships.
I'm not really an old fashioned guy except when it comes to how a
man should treat a woman.
I love kids and dogs and get along with them better than I do most
adults. (They tend to be more honest and usually make more
I'd rather have one good friend than a network of
So what am I looking for? Ever go out to dinner. A nice quite
place, a little dark. You get a bottle of wine to start. A
conversation begins. And it just flows. You laugh. A small laugh.
Like an inside joke. And it just keeps happening. Suddenly the
waiter comes to tell you they are closing and you realize you'd
been there all night and never ordered dinner?
That. I'm looking for that.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Starting over with a better plan. I'm focused on what's really
important this time. I've learned a lot both from my successes and
failures. Too bad they can't teach that stuff in school (would we
have listened anyway?)
That's the long goal. More immediately, I'm now working on my
Masters in Theology online and taking Krav Maga in person.
Also continuing to expand my business and help as many small
businesses as I can.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening and giving great advice. (Though I'm better at giving it
than following it.)
Avid crossword fanatic. Can make a mean Manicotti or a tame morning

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A necessity is a luxury you've had too long. Not much I couldn't do
without if I had to except having someone by my side.
2. Daughter and G-kids
6. Survival (off grid) skills.
Bonus item: A blackened prime rib from Charley's. (seriously, if
you haven't had one, you don't know what I'm talking about)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Open unless I'm busy, other wise I'm tied up,
in which case I wouldn't be very open, now would I.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I like old musicals and I'm not even gay, not even a little bit.
