Now back to our regularly scheduled profile:
While I may not have everything I ever wanted in life, I'm very happy with what I have and I enjoy life to the fullest. I'm fun and funny (a bit sarcastic at times), strong and empathetic. I respect everyone the way I'd like to be respected. My family and friends and the most important aspect of my life, as it should be for most of us. I'm fortunate to have many very old, dear friends (20-25+ years). When you find good people, its best to hold on to them, they are hard to come by in this world. Honesty and integrity are very important to me. When I make a decision, I ask myself if my kids would be proud of me. As a result I'm proud of who I am.
What am I looking for in a match? Nothing. I've learned that preconceptions don't help anyone. If you are so focused on finding someone with the right hair color, body, age or job, you can easily let a wonderful person pass you by without noticing. I'm open minded when I make friends, customers, hire contractors and such. Why wouldn't I be open minded when I'm dating? I would hate to miss a great opportunity. Don't get me wrong, similar interests and values are important, so if you share mine that's a good start. But I'm also eager to be introduced to new things.
If I was in your life, I’d be loyal and dependable, never judgmental, and always honest. I’d never play head games with you, and I don’t do drama. I check my baggage at the door. I’d listen to what you have to say, and I’ll always tell you what’s on my mind (kindly, of course). I'd make you laugh, make you think, and make you wonder. You’d feel good about yourself, you’d feel sexy, and you'd feel important. You’d realize you can always count on me and that I’d always be there if you need me. I'm very affectionate, and enjoy giving physical and emotional attention as much as receiving it.
If you can use someone like that, drop me a note and let’s see where it goes…

PS: After filling out all this stuff and answering all those questions, I took a look at my personality profile. While it seems pretty accurate, I have to take exception to two things: First, it says I am much more arrogant than average, second is I'm less kind, which couldn't be further from the truth. I am very kind, caring, polite, respectful, and empathetic, and yes, confident. You could never find anyone, not even an ex, who would say I'm arrogant and unkind. Just sayin'
I've had a pretty diverse career. Right now I am a web designer/developer, working for a company in Hollywood. Before this I had my own handyman/remodeling business.
My idea of fun is spending time with my friends and family. Every other weekend you can find me having some adventures with my two beautiful kids. On Thursdays I’m at Scouts, and many evenings I'm playing princess with my daughter (she’s the princess, in case you were wondering…). I have them 50% of the time. I love to cook for two or for 20 (love garlic and spicy food). My kids and I have a sit down dinner just about every night they are with me. Don't hit the back button yet, I'm not looking for a mom for them, they already have one.
When I’m not with my kids, I’m out having my own adventures. A night out at the pub for good food and spirits with friends is always a good time for me. I don't do the nightclub thing often though; happy hour, pool, darts or cards are more my speed. I’m not the type of person who likes to sit still. I can be out in my kayak, or boating with friends. Swimming, snorkeling, or anything on the water is my favorite pastime. Chilling by the pool or playing on the beach is great (we do live in South Florida, right?). Camping is always fun, as well as exploring nature on foot or bike. I've discovered there are lots of really cool parks and natural areas right in our area. I love taking little local road trips.

Other things that shouldn't be mentioned here ;-)
I read for information, not entertainment. The only thing more boring than sitting on the couch watching tv is sitting on the couch reading. To each his/her own!
Rock and roll all they way... From the beatles to godsmack.
Seafood is my favorite, especially shellfish. King crab is the most delicious thing you will ever put in your mouth! The staple in my house is grilled chicken or fish and veggies... Trying to eat healthy as I can. I'm a pretty good cook if I do say so myself.
You are NOT selfish and narcissistic.
You ARE adventurous and love trying new things and being outdoors.
You are NOT looking to be taken to Houston's every weekend.
You ARE interested in playing in the kitchen whipping up delicious romantic meals (even if you just want to sit and watch me, thats fine...)
You are NOT looking for a sugar daddy
You ARE looking for someone to flatter you, spend quality time with you, care for you emotionally, and spoil you physically.
