Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I was born in Erie Pennsylvania and migrated in-tow the mid-west at
two years of age. I have moved all over the continental US, and now
reside in sunny Tampa Florida. I would gladly move again for the
right reasons. Western Illinois University Alumni and business
owner / General Contractor best describes my academic and
Chemistry and compatibility are critical and I’m looking for a
woman that will compliment a fairly well rounded lifestyle. I
believe my life in general and my abilities are rightly suitable
for a relationship status change albeit am enjoying being single
with aspirations of a life companion. I like to laugh so I prefer
someone with a sense of humor. For me, the most attractive thing
about a woman is she's young enough to safely have kids but mature.
I am realistic and fully understand that there will be an age
difference between my perspective life partner myself but my man
clock isn't ticking. Her personality and drive is important but I
also look for an emotionally and financially stable, honest, loyal,
respectful, confident, motivated, successful, and if you're still
reading,(ha-ha) drama free woman.
I like to play sports of all kinds, I am competitive, and go to the
gym daily (weekends off). I've studied martial arts and in the past
road-raced motorcycles but now I ride only for pleasure. I love
music and have been playing the guitar since age seven. I'm a lead
guitar player in a original metal band and play rehearse weekly and
play out occasionally.
Anything specific you wanted me to touch on and I haven't so
A cup of coffee? This is where the chemistry happens (or not).
Spontaneous and creative...I am always open to ideas or
suggestions. I would like to start with communicating interests and
personality by telephone before I decide any first date ideas.
There are so many things that are important to schmooze on a first
date, and my list may be a bit arbitrary.. Some possibilities are
including but not limited to coffee (did I say that yet..),
aquarium, theater, mini-golf or driving range, art gallery, concert
/ music show, sightseeing, new cuisine?
Adios for now... and thanks for stopping by!

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Truth be told, there are so many things that are important to life,
and my list may be a bit arbitrary. There are really just three
things on my list that I really want to talk about at some point in
great detail, but a top six list didn’t seem as good as a top 10
list, and it certainly didn’t seem to fit the “rules” of a good
post. So, in no particular order, here’s my list:
Six things I could never do without. (10)
1. Family- If you’re blessed to have a great family, love it and
reach out to someone who may not be as blessed. Also remember that
NO ONE’s family is perfect, no matter what. Try to love what you
have. (Or at least try to laugh at the crazy ones. I’m allowed to
say that because I’m one of them.)
2. Friends – choose wisely, and be the best friend who you can
3. Genuine love and support, both receiving and giving.
4. Health and making the most of it.
5. The basics: health food, water, sleep, oxygen.
6. Comfort food.
7. A sense of humility. No ONE is better than anyone else.
10. Faith in God and a positive mind.
Which three do I want to talk about in greater detail? Numbers 8, 9
and 10. My thoughts on those three things constitute another
500-800 words. But for this post, I’ll stick to one little piece of
advice. It’s not so much about what my top 10 most important things
in life may be, it’s about getting “stuck,” as I so often do.
If you are stuck, maybe you’re thinking about something you really
want to work on but you don’t know where to start, or you’re afraid
you won’t do it well or you get anxiety just thinking about it,
here’s my advice to you: Don’t let perfect get in the way of
