2nd- I'm father to 2 young children.
3rd- I work hard everyday in construction.
4th- I love most anything having to do with the outdoors (although, I rarely get to enjoy these things anymore).
5th- I am a task oriented people person who has been taught and conditioned not to trust people.
6th-I don't need a mother! I've already had that and moved on. I don't need or want someone who can tell me everything I can't do or am not doing, there's plenty there and I already know most of it. I do need a partner who will discuss with me things I might be able to do better, and occasionally help me find the next step. Sometimes, when you concentrate on a thing too long, the obvious gets lost in the annoyance.
Finally- my life isn't very glamorous right now, so if you need simple, easy, or very well established; I would strongly urge you to move on.
