Full disclosure: I am divorced and share custody of an amazing 6 year old boy. He stays with me part of the week. While I am a devoted father, I do have time to date and eventually dedicate time to the right person. I'm open to dating anyone who loves kids, whether you are a parent, want to be one, are not sure you want to be one, or you'd rather be in charge of San Quentin than be one. Since he has a good mother, I don't have to look for one of those.
For many reasons, including becoming a father, I am dramatically more communicative, conscientious, and open than I ever was in my earlier life. Over the years, I have become pretty uninhibited. I'm not for everyone but if I can quote the great and wise Popeye "I is what I Is."
So, like everyone, I have lots of things I love to do. In terms of finding the right person, I personally don't think its a very relevant factor - well, unless you are into some freaky stuff I need to know about. When I have free time, you can typically find me at a martial arts class, running day or night, the movies, a dive bar, the beach walking my dog, yoga, or just chilling on my sofa with a great book. I've gotten quite into personal and spiritual growth so my bedside table rivals a library in Lhasa.
As long as you are generally fit and active, kind, compassionate, and grounded, what you watch, do, listen to, or read, makes absolutely no difference to me. Actually, I'm hoping you'll turn me on to some new stuff.
I work as an attorney - please...please...dont leave my profile yet. I do good work I promise. I don't screw anyone over. Get this, I even get loads of vacation time, get paid well, and work a regular workweek. While I am temporarily a little off my career track, I studied environmental law and management. I am very concerned about animal welfare and wildlife conservation, including the spiders in your bathroom.
I'm a monogamous oriented guy. My goal of dating is to eventually meet someone and have an amazing relationship. That said, I don't jump into relationships. I just don't avoid trying them either.
I love getting out and hitting the trails on a sunny day but you wont find me bitching about rainy foggy days, especially if I have someone to cuddle with (although my black lab is always pretty game for that). I run alot, not competitively, but to clear that "monkey mind" of mine.
I am an affectionate person. If the thought of kissing in a park bothers you or you are the type that likes to sleep on the other side of the bed, please read no further. I am not your guy.
I absolutely love to travel. I've been all over the world. I can stay on a friends couch, a hostel bed, or a tent as easily as a 5 star hotel. I know how to rough it and how to live in style.
Relationships. I was married for some time. I learned a lot. I'm wiser now about what I want then when I got married. I am still open to trying it again someday under the right conditions and with that very special person.
I believe that the purpose of a relationship is to bring out the best in each other. I try hard to look past the superficial to figure out what is in someones heart and soul, since I believe these things are the truest source of lasting chemistry. I love to laugh, goof off, and crack jokes. I can make you laugh when you are having a bad day...guaranteed!
My preference is still to fall in love the old fashioned way, whatever that is. I know, however, that online dating can work. If you think we are a match, please don't hesitate to drop me a line. Ive had better success dating the women who have reached out to me. Not going to analyze why.
