My self-summary
I'm not a hard guy to please or match up with. I care about your eyes and your smile and your values. If we get that right, most everything else ought to fall into place.

If you require a guy who will communicate, that's kind of who I am. I will occasionally make you think, and I'm a life long learner. If you're an intelligent lady, I can make you laugh .... usually.

I don't hunt, smoke, dip or chew.. I have a glass or two of red wine per week for heart health. Otherwise, no alcohol. If motorcycle competence is a requirement, I'm likely not your guy. I've lost 35 pounds since March, 2016. I'm actually 65, but most people think I look mid to late 50s.

My passions are diverse, with a conservative bent. I've been very involved in the past in grass roots politics, though not so much recently. However, I still keep up. I don't think it's a taboo subject. In fact, if you have substantial political differences, it might be wise to find that out early. If you were thrilled by Obama's presidency, then for us to get along, you'll have to be gorgeous. Trump is growing on me, at least in part because of the alternative.

I'm asked a lot what I want in a woman. You'll likely consider yourself an Evangelical. You have pizzazz in your eyes. You probably smile easily. I'd love for you to have gorgeous eyes, that demonstrate a humble confidence. And I would be thrilled, don't laugh, if you have pretty eyebrows.

Mostly I'm a man with a high sense of responsibility and a good heart. I think chivalry is noble. And I'm seeking a woman who would value that.

And while I understand that a great relationship requires friendship and chemistry, I'm not really here to find another few friends. I have lots and lots of female friends. In my little one man business, my clients are mostly women and almost all are friends.
What I’m doing with my life
I've nurtured a little one man business for 35 years. Been in the business since 1976. I go to church 45 to 50 Sundays a year. And I love my men's bible study during the week.

I like to find a need that needs to be met and then organize people to do it. I used to be very involved in grass roots politics, but have backed away. However I still pay attention. I am searching for my last great love. Mostly, I look for ways to make a difference.
I’m really good at
Making my clients happy. Learning the love language of a good woman, and figuring out how to listen to her needs. Making friends with dogs. And I have a hidden talent. In the nursery, I am the man who can take that baby crying endlessly, that nobody else can calm, and get the smile back.
The first things people usually notice about me
Right now, a very short hair cut. I am shorn every June to help me survive working outside a good bit when the temps are up into the 90s or higher.

If I were to stand next to you in a line that would appear to be headed toward lasting more than a minute, I'd be very likely to start a conversation with you. It would energize me to ask or say something to brighten your day just a little, or maybe make you think a little.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My bible, several Frank Peretti books. Emerson Eggerich's valuable relationship book, Love and Respect.
Most of the music I listen to is worship and praise music with a little traditional rock mixed in occasionally. Most anything by Matt Redman, Michael W Smith or Chris Tomlin.
Braveheart, That Thing You Do, Apollo 13, Lonesome Dove, Blast From the Past, Forest Gump, Amazing Grace (the movie), The Gospel According to Matthew (the four hour video). Mark Gungor's great relationship video: Laugh Your Way To A Better Marriage.
I love NCIS. Sooner sports on tv.
Six things I could never do without
Christ, God's grace, the hope of building a romantic relationship to last the rest of my life, my best friend, my cell phone, spending less than I make, college football in the fall. Boomer Sooner.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Two things. God. And finding a great lady here (or elsewhere) with whom to build a great relationship. Sometimes the order changes. And in the fall, Sooner football.
On a typical Friday night I am
It depends on the season. I have a little part time job writing sports in the fall. I have a weekly byline in the FW S-T September through November. The rest of the year, I'd love to be spending time with a lady possessing a great smile.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Great praise music makes my eyes wet.
You should message me if
If you're a lady seeking and will appreciate a good man. I know the God of the universe and seek a lady on the same page. I've learned from my mistakes and about God's grace in the process.

I'm not comfortable having my intentions put into a box to check. I would love to find the last love of my life. But it's okay to find somebody just to date and spend quality time with. You kinda have to go through B to get a chance for A.
The two of us
