My self-summary
Weird title, I know but it just reflects my way of life. When I was young, I went out and partied. Now that I'm older and smarter, my lifestyle has changed considerably.

I guess I'm supposed to say something witty right about here to attract your attention. Perhaps with a little luck, if you read my profile You might like me anyway! Just so you know, I am not a paying subscriber so if you click "like" or want to chat or meet, please send me a quick message. It's 2016 so I guess that's considered OK...

I enjoy playing and listening to music, watching good shows and movies (just about anything),going for walks and hikes,live concerts, garage sales, and a nice dinner or coffee with someone in one of the wonderful little tucked away restaurants around Portland.
What I’m doing with my life
I think it would be very nice to have a very special lady with whom I could share my interests and vice a versa. I'm sort of a one gal guy. Not really into any games.

I,ve had a career in telecommunications now for a long time. I'm thinking of retiring at the end of this year. That would give me more time to hang out with my friends, spend more quality time with my two grandkids , my daughter and son, and my mom who just turned 90 years old a while back. I don't want to look back on my life and think"I wish I would have"...

I keep active, exercise routine in the morning's, walking and hiking with my dog, bicycle riding, and engaging from time to time with my friends playing some music.
I’m really good at
I'm not much of a bragger. They say that some people are givers and others are takers. I am definitely a giver.
I do a lot of talking in my job however I have learned how to be a good listener as well. Particularly in a personal setting. I am a peaceful man, no violent streak, consider myself to be educated and have a bit of a facetious sense of humor sometimes. I am a low maintenance man.
I got involved with music very early age and it has always been my "go to" place. In the past I've played with others quite a bit but now days I'm more of a hobby musician. I think when I retire I would like to start teaching.
I'd love to hear from you!
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably the first things people most about me is my smile and my friendly attitude toward everyone. I also have a good ability to convey my feelings and thoughts. Most people can't believe my age, and swear I'm much younger. I guess it's good genes and mabe living healthy.

I don't check this dating website daily, so if you leave me a message and I don't get back to you soon, it's probably because I'm doing other things.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My appetite for reading ranges from a a variety of authors. It's usually the subject matter that attracts me.
I'm a big music fan but not much into rap. But everything from country, rock, classic rock, classical, folk, and about everything else I love.
One of my favorite types of entertainment is going to see a live band. It's extra awesome if it's a very well-known band across the globe.
The six things I could never do without
The things that I could never do without would probably be:
My family
My guitar
Love and compassion for others
My spiritual beliefs
My memories
My wonderful friends... and of course, my Dog Cody!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I'm going to do in the next chapter of my life; how to get back to my community, especially with young children.
On a typical Friday night I am
A typical Friday night for me could be a movie or get together with friends, or my or perhaps curling up on the couch with my dog at my feet, watching a movie.
You should message me if
In this new digital age of social media, it's relatively difficult to meet a brand-new person, in person. If you think you might be interested in me, you can always shoot me A quick message. I really would like to get to know somebody that's within a short driving distance. I don't think I do well with long distance relationships.
