Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have worked very hard at becoming a balanced, wise person over
the past 15 years since my divorce.
At first, when my kids were young, I decided that I would not date
and instead work at being the best Dad I could be to my two
daughters. They are all grown now, 22 and 19.
I was engaged a few years ago but then I decided it just wasn't
meant to be. Part of the reason was because I felt I was being
called to something else. So for a couple years I had a great wise
monsignor as a spiritual director to help me discern a call to the
Catholic priesthood. I have discontinued my spiritual direction and
have decided to hit the dating scene again.
I have always worked hard to maintain a good relationship with my
ex and her husband. It is the smartest thing I have ever done. We
have worked very well together as a three parent team, and we all
love each other very much. My future partner would have to
appreciate this part of my life.
I am kind, considerate, generous and easy going. Over the years I
have worked hard to be a better listener and to be more
open-minded. I also find myself becoming more liberal politically
and less absolutist philisolphically. It feels like I have come
full circle and I feel more balanced than I ever have.
I maintain my CPA license but I have not practiced in over 10
years. I work a lot of hours as a truck driver and that can't
change for now since I am tied to a mortgage. But I have weekends
free and I love life and make the most of each and every day.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am contemplating my next move.
I continue to have fun working on some projects at the house. My
elder daughter is back in town after college graduation and staying
with me occasionally.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Handy household chores and mechanics, cooking, listening, massage.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Uncertainty. I think I have quite the poker face. Even those that I
am closest to have much difficulty knowing what kind of mood I am
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love historys, world religions, and philosophy books. I love
science and astrophysics in particular. But I also love fiction.
Charles Dickens and Jane Austen are my favorite novelists. My
favorite TV shows are Big Bang and How I Met Your Mother. Favorite
music right now is folk and alternative. Regina Spektor, Brandi
Carlisle, Indigo Girls. Have always loved classic rock, opera,
symphony, all performing arts, blues.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family. Friends. My Smartphone (it's the only internet source I
have). Fine Food, Wine, Scotch, an occasional cigar. How many
things was I allowed?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
God. My two daughters. How to make the world a better place.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
