My self-summary
Hmmm... To describe me... I do like to laugh and have fun, but I have a serious side that allows me to truly get to know people. I remember almost everything I see and hear. I see this as a positive thing since most people like to know that they are heard :)

My interests are mostly outdoors. I am very active. I'm not a hunter, nor a camouflage junkie (I got that out of my system years ago). I like to go to the beach, hike, go for a walk in a park, play softball, swim, or try something new.

What I look for in a lady: Of course... Like all of us, I love to be attracted physically... Eyes, Smile, Personality, figure... I don't expect perfection... I'm not :) I just like it when it's obvious that someone takes pride in how they look and feel. I don't like it when people are shallow. At the end of the day... I want to have an emotional connection that will last.
What I’m doing with my life
I have already rediscovered me after being married for almost 20 years (I have been divorced for over 5 years). I am enjoying being active and having a better balance between work, home and play.

For fun, I like to take drives to fun new places I haven't been to yet, Hike a new trail, Bicycle rides, Disc golf, Antique shop, Cook and more importantly... Spend time with my kids :)
I’m really good at
Fixing things and figuring things out! I have always enjoyed working with my hands and problem solving. I have a lot of tools and know how to use them! I am good at being empathetic, good listener and communicator. I'm also a good cook.
The first things people usually notice about me
I really don't know :) Maybe my smile?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music can make me smile, reflect, relax or motivate the heck out of me. I connect with a lot of different types of music. I don't really connect with rap though. Lately my tastes have steered me to older R&B and some 80's music like Simply Red. I love the song "Sunrise" by them :) Music is a passion of mine... so I'm just going to add songs as I think of them and find them relevant. Yes has song called "Leave it"! The Tubes, "She's a beauty". AC/DC "Who made who".

I like a good action movie, but for the most part, a movie that touches most of my senses. I think a good example would be "50/50" or "The Blind Side".
The six things I could never do without
1. Family
2. Sports (I like to play them, not just watch)
3. My kids (we are very close)
4. Friendships (Friends keep me in check)
5. Deep conversations (I love to REALLY get to know people)
6. A comfortable bed (I work and play hard, need good sleep)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why everyone has a picture of themselves holding their phone up...
I'll show you my phone later :)
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with friends, going to a movie or dinner.
Or, I'm at home cooking, doing laundry, cleaning house... :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was an Army Sniper/Counter-Sniper.

You are emotionally ready to meet someone and if what I had to say resonates with you.
