My self-summary
Update: Well, I'm back on OKC after being away for a while. I've met some very nice people (a couple not-so-nice ones), but I still haven't met that special 'one'. Through my experiences, I've come to one very important conclusion: be yourself. It seems many people will put out false fronts, exaggerate characteristics, or flat out lie about things. I can't understand that. If your intention is to meet people and get to know them, then the truth will eventually come out. That's why I believe in being completely open and honest from the beginning. Please feel the same if you 'd like to get to know me :-)

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…

"Don't waste your time on jealousy. Sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind. The race is long, and in the end it's only with yourself." - Mary Schmich

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'
What I’m doing with my life
In terms of importance I would say 1. being a good dad, 2. having fun, 3. working. In terms of time, its not necessarily the same order.

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.
I’m really good at
I can fix anything.
Getting my daughter to stop crying and smile when shes upset.
Problem solving.
Other things that shouldn't be mentioned here ;-)
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my height/size. I've been told I have nice eyes. And big muscular legs.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm very active, and definitely not a couch potato. I don't watch a lot of TV aside from some sports and occasional comedies, documentaries or action/adventure shows (Hey, I'm a guy), but I can be convinced to spend the night cuddled on the couch with a movie by the right person. Tosh.o, Family Guy, Walking Dead, Falling Skies and my guilty pleasure is those "Worlds Dumbest" shows on TruTV. Favorite movies are the Matrix and Saving Private Ryan.

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.
Six things I could never do without
My kids, good food, cold beer, music, friends/family,the water
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What fun new adventures I can have this weekend
On a typical Friday night I am
BBQing with my kids and/or friends, happy hour :-D, heading to the beach, seeing a local band.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I admit nothing.... and you can't prove anything.... ;-p
