Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've lived in Minnesota all my life. I grew up in a bad part of
Minneapolis with my twin brother and single Mom. I attended
Augsburg College and then married my high school sweetheart and we
were together till her passing 32 years later. After that, life
took me on a few paths that had some challenging twists and turns
and only now have I reached a clearing where I truly see blue sky
and a great desire to pursue my plans and goals for my future. I've
worked for two fortune five hundred companies as well as starting
my own small landscaping business 20 years ago. Im a very positive,
honest and trustworthy person. I enjoy variety and change in day to
day life, a flaming romantic and would love to share the rest of my
life with someone very special to me..
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently reorganizing my landscaping business and hope the
upcoming economy will assist me in my business goals for 2014. I
Work out at the gym about five times a week, hate going but feel
great when I'm done. Shopping for a new camera to start my love of
photography again. Enjoy going out to dinner to new restaurants I
have yet to try. Love to sing and slow dance at local kareoke dive
bars once and a while. Also, my son just signed me up for
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Landscaping. We did alot of the Parade of Homes model locations
over the years. I love music and sing pretty well...country love
ballads...not the old twangy stuff. lol. Enjoy writing short
stories mixing non-fiction and fiction to add a bit more color to
the plots. Wish I had more time for photography, have captured some
great moments over the years. Interior design..something I may
persue more once I'm worn out from landscaping.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I usually have a smile on my face and I'm told a confident way I
carry myself in large and small crowds.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My favorite book would be "To Kill A Mocking Bird". My favorite
movie "Bridges Of Madison County". On T.V., mostly cable news or
old reruns to just get me laughing. I like Jazz, Celtic a bit but
mostly country music... Garth, Allen Jackson, Clint Black, Sawyer
Brown, Zak Brown and George Strait. Food...Mexican, pizza and all
American mashed potatoes and gravy, Jucy Lucies and don't get me
started on cheesecake. My favorite Restaurant is W.A. Frost's in
St. Paul rated no.1 in the Twin Cities for outside dining...on a
warm summer night with the lights strung throughout the tree tops
like a canopy over you it's almost mystical looking and quite
romantic to say the least.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I have two wonderful adult children and a lovely granddaughter,
does that count as 3? Hate th cell phone, hate th internet, hmmm.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
where I've been, and now, where I'm going..and with who.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Lately, at home painting my living room. Prior to that, out a few
nights a month for either a nice dinner or pullin on my faded
Levi's, white tee shirt n boots and finding the local kareoke dive
bar for some singing and a few slow dances..I'm a two drink per
evening out kinda guy by the way. Jack & coke in a short
glass...not as easy to tip and fewer trips to the bathroom.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Here? nothing. To my significant other...the possibilities and list
could be endless.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...you'd like flowers sent to you for no reason other than being
the person you are, or would like to maybe sleep together under the
stars in our front yard on a hot summer night and in the morning,
have our neighbors wishing it had been them. Message me if you'd
like to be at a party together sometime and from across the room,
with just a glance, we can connect so easily as to what the other
is thinking... or maybe letting me wash your hair in a warm steamy
shower at times or to hold the door for you even when no one is
looking. To maybe sleep in my old tee shirts at night when I'm
away. Someone to gently wipe the tears from your eyes after a sad
movie has ended or to pull up the covers for you when your sleeping
so you don't get cold in the night. Or maybe our first cup of
coffee together out on the front porch during a rare morning
thunderstorm. To share a carton of ice cream together in bed with
just one spoon n a good classic movie. Or to come up behind you for
no reason other than desire, and gently lift the hair from the back
of your neck and slowly kiss you there and listen to you breath. If
you want someone to be there for you, if only to be held a bit and
assure you everything will be ok..message me.
