Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Kingwoodguy is looking for a someone to giggle with, a permanent
dance partner. I seek a pleasant master of ease and sincerity,
adroitness and flexibility, someone liberal and open-minded.
Someone who smiles more than she frowns and laughs because she GETS
IT! I find intelligence incredibly attractive. I'm looking for that
sexy, smart type who's not stuck on herself. I'd like to meet
someone genuine about her search: past the rebound, ready to share,
realistic and sincere.
I know what I like, I know what I'm looking for, and I did the
research to learn how this site works. OKC offers tools that no
other (pay site, even) can even approach. Unfortunately, users
often unknowingly skew their own scores or search results. If both
parties only answer a reasonable amount of relevant questions and
you still have less than 50% of common answers, you aren't getting
an accurate picture. This is especially true if they added comments
you can't see in the questions you skipped! You know you can go
back and delete in 24 hours, right?
It's a lot like life. If someone is unaware of just a certain
amount details about something, doors seem to lock them out of
opportunities, wisdom, or of a perspective, which could change
their entire life's path!
My profile is unique. It is also an investment. If this is too much
for you, we aren't gonna work! You WILL know a LOT about me...
(through comments I add). IF you unlock the QUESTIONS. People can
only see what they are willing to reveal themselves! Show me yours
and I'll gladly show ya mine (blush/dimple). I've been told that my
profile is entertaining. Laugh with me, laugh at me, shake off the
shock of profound revelations and be entertained- at the least?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I kinda lost a complete year back in 2008, dealing with a surprise
divorce after 14 loyal years. I do have primary custody and I view
fatherhood as my FIRST full-time vocation. My kids are each
approaching their birthdays this winter. My oldest son will be 21
and is a Senior, Pre-med, at Texas State. My middle son will turn
16, and my baby-girl will be 15.
I've also owned an insurance business since 1994. There are not
many business opportunities that offer such a persistent passive
income, so it has been nice to have! My residual commissions have
allowed me to invest a chunk of my hours writing papers as a full-
time college, then graduate/post- graduate student and a
TA/lecturer/adjunct professor over the past few years. Doing this
was central to my healing process.
All at the same time, I had THREE staple ingredients of my life
fall between my fingers (my marriage, a major blow to my business,
and serious questions about my religious perspective.) These also
triggered a major shaking up of my entire social network, just as I
needed it most! School was where I found refuge. As my kids have
gotten older, things are seeming easier and easier. I may have
figured a few things out after all?
My thesis research has split evenly between sales-and-marketing
applications and analysis of Social Science Statistics. My
dissertation theme, focuses on how our beliefs, ideas, thought
processes and cultural identities, have evolved and how these
compare to the historiography that's built into our
spatial-temporal reasoning... I know, right?!!
Recently, I have reassessed my goals in education. The path to
tenured professor doesn't seem to be the most efficient investment
of my talent, but I will always be writing. I do have published
works and have been working on a six- book series, which (due to
its design) cannot be released until all are finished. Its pretty
humorous stuff, though (I'm told; publisher said my writing style
is as good as David Sedaris? So, where is that $6m per book
advance??). Meanwhile, I have a few other things I want to
accomplish, I have bills to pay, a house to maintain, kids to raise
and have a life that needs to be lived. I had been "hiding" for too
long! With that said, I recently completed an LSAT prep course (for
Law School) and have taken the PLSAT and feel encouraged by
consistent perfect scores to go ahead and switch gears (but I'm
riding the clutch). What can I say? I've done every degree- level
in pairs, so why not a second Doctorate? We'll see.
I gotta keep moving!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'd say writing, my saxophone, dancing, giving massages, makin'
dimples, listening and yes- I am good at gabbing, too! I think my
kids would tell ya I'm good at being a dad, also! I may not be able
to do the things a mom can, but being stable and dependable is what
they need. By being "tuned in to their frequency" and knowing what
they think is fun or cool, or at least trying to, goes a long way
in their eyes and in their hearts.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I guess you'll have to meet me to verify this, but people say my
dimples are my most notable feature.

Quote which describes me:
"The best author will be the one who is ashamed to become a writer"
"They are hesitant to publish their inner thoughts, for fear of
labeling, but do so dutifully." If someone is offended by something
I write, they are exactly the person who needed to read it!
Books: Tough to say. I absorb well over a dozen books a month (Via
Movies/TV: Patrick Swayze was the man! I was often told how much I
resembled him in his- and my "heydays" in the early 90's (I lost
the mullet). "The Time of My Life," was an excellent book and I
believe we share a lot of views (listen to the audio- he reads it).
Man, he could dance!
In many ways I relate to the character "Brian", the cool talking
dog on Family Guy (that's also my name). Like any pupper, we like
to have fun! We also yearn for someone we can share intelligent
conversation with, but somehow don't fit in with the
"geeks/nerds/dorks" (there is a funny test on OKC which deciphers
this). Sometimes I feel like Walter White (Heisenberg, even) from
Breaking Bad (best show, ever!), in certain ways. I'd like to be
more like "The dude", from the Big Lewbowski, though.
Music: Whatever, I like a lot of stuff, but since I'm not in High
School I don't think this really defines me. I will mention that
the range goes from Jazz to RAP, Rock to Country.
Dance: My favorite dancin' music would be Lynyrd Skynyrd's Sweet
Home Alabama, with a live band! I also like salsa, cumbia, and
bachata. Other than Tejano and line dances, I'll dance to anything.
Save a slow dance to a Marvin Gaye song for me?
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I know this sounds corny, but whenever I see old couples together
who hold hands and embrace and are genuinely happy to be with each
other, I cannot stop thinking of them- even days later! I also love
to see older couples out for a night of dancing or on a date
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Your curiosity is piqued AND peaked!
Message once you've read the questions section, my added comments,
and the tests. If you can jive with my perspective and you
appreciate my sincerity, then that's more than half the distance to
I am not yet where I am going, but have experienced a LOT and I
enjoy each day while I am getting there! It really doesn't matter
to me what you do or where you are going. Its the attitude that
many things are interesting and fun, along with the maturity and
awareness of the fact that TIME IS LIMITED. We have to constantly
remind ourselves that pleasure is important and we have to manage
our lives to find the quality and mix that fits our own need for
satisfaction. Life is wonderful; we don't know what lies around the
next corner, but we should realize that time is always ticking,
ticking, ticking. My motto is: after responsibility, comes
appreciation, then exhilaration!
