I am 48 and have been divorced for 3 1/2 years. I have twin sons who are 21 years old. I was married for 21 years and put a lot into a bad marriage, mostly for the boys.
My career as a heavy duty diesel (truck) mechanic also consumed a lot of my time. But after 27 years with the trucking industry, I now am a mechanic for a school bus company. This proved to be a great move as it is a much less stressful job. And my new work schedule does not interfere with my personal time like the 24/7 trucking industry.
The marriage, spending time with my sons and work has kept me from having much of a social life. But, now with the marriage behind me, the boys more independent, a career change and a new lease on life I am ready to start living again. It is time to rediscover some of the things I used to enjoy such as fishing, camping and enjoying a night out. I am hoping to find someone to share these things with.
I have just started to try dating again. It is the first time since the divorce. No, I was NOT hung up on my ex. There were some troublesome issues in my life that needed to be dealt with. I first created a profile first about two and a half years ago, but never responded to contacts until recently. Maybe that was best as I got a lot of things behind me first.
I could be best described as “old fashioned”. Most of my morals and beliefs are old school. I enjoy celebrating the holidays and family functions. I have a good sense of humor. Sometimes my joking can be subtle, but I try to avoid sarcasm.
I am honest and trustworthy.
