Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Ok, a quick disclaimer. My marriage ended 5 years ago, but I'm
still "technically" married. And it's simply a technicality (I'll
explain in more detail privately). It has nothing to do with the
possibility of reconciliation.
I wish this site had more options so I don't have to feel like I'm
being dishonest by claiming I'm single. My life and my
circumstances better fit in the "single" category than "married".
In fact, most people think I've long been divorced.
Quick disclaimer #2. I work nights. I know this is an issue for
some of you, so it's best you know that now. I've been with the
same company for 26+ years, and sometime in the near future I will
be switching to the day shift. But for the next couple/few years
the night shift fits my life (and my kids lives) best.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working, raising kids, and trying to make this little house I
bought a home. The making it a home part seems to be a
challenge...apparently I am a man and this decorating thing just
isn't my cup of tea. I don't even like tea.
I also try and run a few times a week, and occasionally I do stupid
things like sign myself up to run marathons.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
...words with friends...although it is highly possible that I'm
only good because I've got stupid friends.

Movies-The Natural and Shawshank Redemption are two of my
I tend to migrate to The Discovery and History Channels, as well as
the food network. I enjoy watching sports as well, preferably the
Giants and Niners. I work nights, so I pretty much miss out on the
popular prime time shows.
Music-I enjoy country, oldies, and top 40 type of stuff
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My kids (I feel guilty listing them here, it should go without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Random animal fights. If you threw a tiger in a tank with a
dolphin, who would die first? Would the tiger be able to catch and
maul Flipper, or would the dolphin swim circles around Tigger until
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either spending time with the kids, working, being lazy, or out
with friends. Fridays aren't very typical.
