Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Can i just say "i am a nice guy" and leave it at that? How about
this - get to know me, and you decide. I will say this - i
sometimes feel like those plate spinners who keep dozens of plates
twirling around and around - let's see: there's work; kids
(homework, sports, games); exercise; i love to write, but where is
the time?; cooking; shopping; reading; trying to figure out how da
Bears can win another super bowl -
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Moving forward with my life -- raising my sweet girls part time -
trying to figure out what's next in this incredible journey that we
call life. Would enjoy meeting a good woman to join me in the
stroll down the lane. What's a "good woman"? She's funny, has a
sense of humor, intelligent, kind, thoughtful, honest, beautiful
inside and out. what else? you can tell me if you want.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
being a friend -- finding happiness wherever it lurks -- cooking
(right after college - 1st day i had a hot dog for dinner; 2nd day
frozen dinner; 3rd day i decided i needed to learn how to cook -
been cooking for years i really enjoy it - hope the folks that eat
it do as well - so far they are all still alive, so that's a good
sign) -- hopefully i am a good Dad - (i work hard at it) --
listening -- keeping the house clean (i know how to wash floors,
clean toilets, do laundry, and get rid of all that fuzzy stuff
under the beds) - grocery shopping - when i am tired and can't read
or sleep, i am really good at flipping the channels and trying to
watch a dozen shows at the same time - remembering birthdays -
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes - quite blue. Oh, and people stop me all the time and ask
me if i am Brad Pitt. Well, that's obviously not true, but i did
have some nice young man stop me in Fields awhile back and tell me
that i looked like John Wayne. He nearly swooned when i told that i
liked to ride horses ....
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love all kinds of books, usually reading a few books at the same
time - enjoy classic literature (i never read the Jungle, and i
want to start it soon), love to re-read Shakespeare, summertime is
great for mysteries, love reading bios and about history, books
about religion(s) - so much has been done on the name of religion
throughout our history that i find it fascinating to read about
religions. I had a fellowship to the Univ of Chicago years ago and
took a bunch of courses in the Divinity School. Read the entire New
Testament, part of the Old, and a good chunk of the Koran. Ain’t
what you learn in the Sunday Sermon, that’s for sure.
I enjoy all kinds of movies and music - my tastes are wide and
eclectic. I enjoy a well acted and well made movie (or play),
doesn’t matter that much what it’s about. I can enjoy the movie for
the artistry behind it, even if I don’t’ like the story line. Music
– Beethoven to the Beatles, Mozart to the Monkees, jazz, blues,
Food? I like it all. Italian, Asian, Indian, African, South
American etc etc
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
my siblings (from a family of eight)
a sunny day in the summer (hopefully with low humidity)
ok - i admit it, i do enjoy a nice glass of wine and/or a cocktail
- (goes very well with the sunny summer day, also goes well on cold
winter days, may as well throw in spring and fall to round things
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where did we all came from? Fifteen billion years ago there was
this this Big Bang - and out of that came me typing a message on
computer that anyone on this earth can see. Pretty darn amazing i
I also wonder how my children's lives will play out. I wonder how
things get made and who makes them - i watch some tv show with my
kids about how things are made - fascinating - i think about alot
of things really - let's get together and we can think great
thoughts together - i wonder if i will find a woman who will love
me as much as i love her -
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
hanging with my kids, and/or friends, relaxing after a week of
going to the office fighting other people's fights
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
can't really say right now ....
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you enjoy and embrace life, are happy (most of the time), you think
about alot of things, and are just a really nice person who is
willing to love and be loved in return - that's about it.
