Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
As a child, my dream was to live in California. I remembered
spending my 4th birthday playing out in the Pacific Ocean. I
followed that dream after the Navy. I missed Florida.
I enlisted in the Navy almost the day after I graduated. I was
going to see the World! I got to see the bottom of a Ship a lot. I
did, however, get to stand in the Roman Coliseum though.
I was married to the girl of my dreams by age 22. Sadly, the dream
was over months later.
What did I learn? That not everything that we are taught to want
are things that will make you happy.
So, I have spent the time since trying to discover what makes me
happy. I have discovered that for me, balance is an integral part
of who I am. I have learned that money, although nice to have to
buy things and afford some opportunities, is not inherently what I
seek for happiness. I have been much happier at times making diddly
squat as a Teacher’s Aide then I have while making decent money as
a warehouse supervisor. I have discovered that staying off the
beaten path is harder if you happen to love your friends and
family. Not all those you love will tolerate bugs and dirt as much
I realize that I enjoy socializing and dancing, I just realize I
don’t particularly enjoy the drama sometimes involved, so I try to
do so with those I am closest to. This tends to reduce such
I like to think that I now have a better idea of my own happiness,
but I can’t quite escape the nagging feeling that there is more,
that there is something missing. I have observed some of my friends
and the families they have created, and I still have hope that I
will get that chance too.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am going to school to become a Secondary School Teacher.
I have always been husky. I think I have enjoyed surprising people
at how athletic I am despite being so. However, recently I have
discovered Mountaineering and rock climbing. For the first time I
feel hampered by being a bigger guy. Rather than quit the
activities I have been making it my goal to tone down my body. It
is quite humbling after years of defiantly waving my fist at
societies definition of athletic. humbling indeed.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Tying a cherry stem
I'm very good at cooking mashed potatoes. That wasn't always the
case. When I was much younger, the first time I tried making them,
I cut them up and put them into a blender... one problem, I didn't
know you boiled them before mashing...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My smile. I have braces :D oh and that I shave my head
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I once had a friend in High School want to get me a T-shirt that
read "So many books, so little time"
Science Fiction is probably my favorite.
I am trying, in vain it seems, to read more Shakespeare.
Movies. I love movies, just not so much movie theaters; home
theater systems rock.
Shawshank Redemption, Matrix, Dune, Notting Hill, P.S. I Love You,
Music. I tend to gravitate towards Rock. Foo Fighters
But I have moments where I enjoy other stuff, such as Classical,
Jazz, Country, The Sirens (female artists like Sarah Maclachan,
Norah Jones, Adele, Tori Amos), & yes even a little R&B or
Shows. Anything with a good story line can usually suck me in.
Dexter, Person of Interest
but i do like The Big Bang Theory.
Food. there are many. Mexican, Italian, French, American.
I like to cook. :-)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Faith, hope, & love
2. Friends & Family to Laugh with & at
3. Water for my body to Play in
4. My creative imagination
5. Food you could just die for
6. Great music that Excites the soul
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
In general My Future.
As a school bus driver, a substitute teacher, an uncle, I know I
love being around children. I have a passion for shaping young
minds to become better human beings. and so I really have that as a
goal to become a parent. I want to have that challenge of helping
shape my own child into an adult.
I am looking for someone who wants to make a family with me.
My grandma once asked me when I was going to give her a
great-grandchild. this was my reply. I am a man so giving birth is
kind of out of the question, or I would have already. Thus, it
requires me to meet a woman who can put up with me long enough.
But, what happens if she already has children, or can not bear
children? maybe we could adopt or use more modern methods
available, but maybe not. so, I don't know, but let me just first
try to meet the right woman. My grandma gave me a hug
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
As part of my outdoor leadership classes, I'm usually out camping.
Whether it be for rock climbing, wilderness pursuits, or ethics.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once enjoyed getting a manicure. I can understand how women
appreciate being pampered.
I once laughed so hard while drinking a milkshake, I had it coming
out of my nose. I try not drinking milkshakes around laughter

You can finish this song "soft kitty warm kitty little ball of
online dating photos : I respect modesty & discretion. As I
look around the various dating sites I am amazed at how little
modesty there is. I won’t say I close my eyes when I come across
the photos, but I realize as I am looking, that it just surprises
me how much men & women are yearning for attention; Each
person, pushing the boundary a little further than the last, to
keep that attention. But I wonder, at what cost? & is it worth
it??? I recently read this quote and thought it apropos. "Seduction
requires both skill and subtlety. Nudity requires neither"
