I'm a pretty solid guy who works hard and enjoys family and friends and my two children when I get to see them. I like trying new things, going to new places, and trying new foods, but I'm equally happy spending an evening in. I enjoy college football in person and on TV, but I can't spend all day watching a TV for anything. I like getting outside and being active or going somewhere, preferably with someone else who will also enjoy the activities and my company. I want someone to enjoy life with, not just to cook and do laundry. (I can do those, but I'll be happy to let you spoil me with your cooking ).
I enjoy traveling and exploring, but I still have a child in elementary school, so I'm a ways from being an empty nester.
I don't do "hookups" or one-night stands and bars are not my thing, certainly not for trying to meet someone. I have a good job and my own home, and haven't lived with my parents since college. I was faithful during my marriage and don't plan on being any different in the future.
What I’m doing with my life
During the week, I work, and hopefully getting to run in the evenings or walking my dog. On the weekends, I spend time with my children, or do outdoors activities like hiking, biking, kayaking, running. Driving in the mountains with the top down. When necessary, I do home improvements or yard work. I go to church on Sunday. When I can, I enjoy running 10K's, half-marathons, and the occasional full marathon. I'd like to renew my pilot's license and do some more flying. I want to live more, find someone with which to do the things my former spouse didn't want to do, and make up for a lot of lost time.
I’m really good at
I am good at cooking. I'm very good at designing and fixing things,
whether it is my cars or home repairs. I'm good at remembering a
lot of useless information. I'm a good writer. I've been told I'm
pretty good at kissing...
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes, my sense of humor which can be sometimes dry, sometimes
absurd (think Far Side), sometime silly.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
For movies, classics like Blues Brothers, Princess Bride, Pixar
movies, Pirates of the Caribbean, Animal House, 16 Candles, 007,
tons more that I can't think of at the moment. My reading is
everything from history, to biographies, to thrillers.
Depending on the situation, I can enjoy most genres of music from
classical to big band to country, but mostly I listen to 70's and
The six things I could never do without
Classic rock music
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My kids, family, friends, upcoming adventures.
On a typical Friday night I am
Preferably having dinner with a special someone, then snuggled up on the couch catching up on whatever shows we've missed. But going out to eat or dancing sounds good also. But every other weekend, I'm picking up my sons for visitation and enjoying being their dad for 46 hours.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I won't ever complain about how many pairs of shoes you have.
You should message me if
Send me a message if you would like someone to do things with,
especially outdoor activities, movies, dinner, live music, etc. and
can put up with my wry sense of humor. I'm not ripped and buff, but
I'm in pretty good shape and it would be nice if you were also. The
age thing isn't chiseled in stone, but I am not looking for anyone
significantly older than me. Preferably on the northern side of
Atlanta. Message me if you like affection and like reciprocating.
