My self-summary
Hey girls! Looking for a couch potato who has a perpetual sink full of dirty dishes, never puts down the toilet seat, plays video games 24/7, and lives in his parent's basement? Then keep looking, because THAT guy I'm not.

I'm an intelligent, articulate, fit, open, active guy who wants to find a similar woman, interested in building a long-term monogamous relationship. She is in a healthy place in life, and truly ready for a meaningful relationship. She has inner beauty that matches her outer beauty. We push each other a little outside our comfort zones to both experience new and wonderful things. Good partners work together to play to each others stronger skill sets. The girl I want to spend time with understands that thought. She also understands the concept of a partnership, and understands the give-and-take of a healthy relationship. I do not want to spend any more time with someone who is selfish or materialistic. I believe in building a relationship through good communication and shared interests/activities. I'm fairly old-school when it comes to romance and manners, yet I play and think at a much younger age.

I'm a responsible father of 2 teenage boys (1 in college; the other in hs), and I prioritize attending their activities. Family is important
to me, even though mine is very small. I work hard at living up to the obligation of being a good parent. Some of my most enjoyable times were while I was coaching my kids' sports teams and leading them through scouting. When I was married, I headed home after work. I wasn't the kind of husband/father who found ways to avoid the family life. I look forward to finding a good woman who deserves to be the focus of my attention.

At this stage in life, we all have baggage. Let's just be honest about it. Mine is manageable (like a carry-on size); hopefully yours is, too. I'm fairly self-aware, and realize that I'm not perfect. I try to live a good life and be a positive role model to my kids and co-workers. I'm very much an optimist and wake up every morning in a good mood. If you haven't watched the movie Date Night, you should. One, it's hilarious. Two, there are some great relationship lessons in there.

Some things that I'd like to do in the future, besides find an honest, strong, kind-of-mainstream, well-balanced, attractive, independent woman who can be direct in her communication? Hot air ballooning; ball room or latin dance classes; explore more Caribbean islands (esp Aruba; Cayman); tour more National Parks (like Yosemite, Yellowstone); get my kids through college; take in a Broadway play (cuz it's been a while).
What I’m doing with my life
Right now, I'm putting most of my effort into maintaining my relationship with my two kids. I take my responsibility as a parent very seriously. Adjusting to not getting to spend time every day with them was somewhat of a challenge when I first got divorced. My kids and I are in an excellent place right now.

I've got a really good job that provides both great personal satisfaction, as well as monetary security. I enjoy what I'm doing, plus I do it pretty well.

I'm also putting a good deal of time in trying to find that "right person" to help me delete this profile.
I’m really good at
Organizing and planning; kissing; listening; traveling; being optimistic; staying calm in a crisis.

Maybe my smile. Why don't you message me and give me some ideas for what to put here.

Actors: Hanks, Pitt, Newman, Hopkins, Penn, Downey, Depp, Theron, Johannsen, Clooney, Damon, Denzel, Crowe, Wahlberg.

Authors: Grisham, Turow, Hillerman , Patterson, DeMille, Connelly, Grafton, Michener, Clancy. Elmore Leonard. Mostly books on CD, rather than paper. I get Men's Health, Time, SI, and Outside magazines.

TV: NCIS, Elementary, The Mentalist, Modern Family; Sons of Anarchy, House, Seinfeld, Axmen, Justified, The Office.

Food: Mostly a meat-and-potatoes guy, but I'll eat just about anything. I make a great chicken piccata, as well as a pretty mean bolognese sauce.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Seriously? I think that's a conversation in private, no? Just know that I don't have any real communication or intimacy issues. You should be similar.

you're honest, optimistic, and have a nice smile. Also, you're active, attractive, and intelligent. Maybe you know a good dance club nearby. Other attributes that would be nice? Kind, positive, upbeat, friendly, well rounded, polite, young-at-heart, respectful. DON'T message me if you're shallow, materialistic, or selfish.
