Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi there. I'm really not good at these self-summary things.
I guess the best way to describe myself is that I don't take myself
too seriously. I feel that if you can't laugh at yourself - who can
you laugh at! A sense of humor is very important to me. I'm
sarcastic and witty (I think) and truly enjoy the company of people
who have a similar sense of humor, or at least can understand mine
and make me laugh (and those who enjoy run-on sentances). I'd love
to meet someone who I can just be myself with. Someone who enjoys
sports - both watching and playing. Someone who is secure with who
they are and doesn't feel the need to "keep up with the Jones's".
Or do certain things just because their friends do. I'm an
independent thinker and don't put a lot of faith in what the
"experts" say. I'm probably somewhere between middle of the road
and liberal as far as my beliefs and values.
I spend a lot of my time taking my son to and from various sports
practices and occasionally coaching his team. I am still doing some
projects around my house that I bought a few years ago. I enjoy
tinkering with projects and fixing stuff that doesn't work.
I've been separated for almost 3 years now. Long story - I'd be
happy to share if you want.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I started a new job this year. Old one had gone steadily downhill
over the past 4 years (and tried to drag me down with it) so I'm
really looking forward to the new one. So far it seems like it's
going to be pretty cool.
I love being a dad! I have custody of my son 50% of the time and he
will continue to be my first priority in life.
I enjoy gardening. REALLY - When is summer coming?!? I have veggies
that need to be plated! I'd love to figure out how to grow tomatoes
inside over the winter! If you know - message me! Looking forward
to this year's strawberries already... (although it might be July
before they get there this year! UGH)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm good at being modest, which is going to make the answer to this
question really boring isn't it.
I am a very honest person. Unfortunately that sometimes means "TOO"
honest. I don't sugar coat things and I'll tell you what I really
I like to think of myself as a jack of all trades (and
unfortunately - master of none). I'm the sort of guy who will take
on most projects (home improvement) - even though all of them don't
always turn out looking like what the pro's would be able to do. I
enjoy doing home repair projects and building and fixing things. I
fixed a friend's furnace / AC unit tonight after he had screwed up
the wiring. Yay me! (OK - that doesn't fit into the modest me part
- but I'm really proud of myself!)
I'm also decent at computer stuff. I have built and repaired
computers for about 15 years now. OK, I'm a computer geek! But I
like it! I just need to find the damsel in distress... with the
broken computer... :-)

Music - 80's rock / pop. 90's "alternative" which is actually more
mainstream that true alternative. I enjoy a fair selection of music

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Sanity :-) I seem to have misplaced it however. Maybe you can
help me find it.
2. My son - his energy and enthusiasm for life.
3. Constantly learning new things. What can you teach me
4. Tasty beer (and pizza)
5. A sense of humor - possibly sarcastic, punny or dry..
6. Still missing one... any suggestions?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I plan for the future. Too much thinking - not enough doing
sometimes - but I'm definitely a planner.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hopefully relaxing and de-stressing - but there might be a baseball
game (or some Wii time if he has his way!) with my son. There
probably is a Sam Adams or homebrewed beer in somewhere in

You would like to meet and get to know each other? OK - that's not
a witty answer or anything but I'm not looking for a penpal or
someone to email with longer term. I'd like to meet in person and
see if we actually share some interests and values.
