My self-summary
I'm not your typical guy. I've been told this countless times and I know this full well. I love to shop, love shoes, hats, scarves, clothes. Yes I manscape but what self-respecting guy doesn't these days? I've been mistaken for metrosexual on many an occasion but I certainly am not. While I like all these things I am still rugged, I work with my hands, am handy, and I beard like it's my job. I don't do manicures nor do I wax, but if you requested my company for a spa day I'd certainly oblige. I have a number of tattoos AND I can rock pink like a boss. I am compassionate, caring, respectful, chivalrous, a hopeless romantic, and I listen like the best of them, and not just pretend to do so while I watch the game over your shoulder. I am confident yet humble, and I certainly know where the line is and try not to cross it. :) I've been told I'm virtually a girl, but really I'm a wicked balance of everything good a person should be I think.

I'm house-broken (not to be mistaken for house-poor), fiercely loyal, honest to a fault, great with kids, and I can fetch a mean ball. I'm never too old to learn new tricks, and frankly don't think I'm too old for anything. I'm always down for an adventure and to try something new, be it a strange ethnic cuisine, dance lessons, treasure-hunting, cougar-baiting, leprechaun-chasing... I'm your guy.

I'm a hard-working, driven, ambitious man with hopes, dreams, and plans in this life and I'm looking for that special someone to share it with, but in due time. I've met some amazing people here over the years and know there are more like them. I wear my heart on my sleeve and take risks, as you can't hit the home run if you don't step up to the plate and swing for the fence, right?

The girl I'm looking for is a girl at heart but a real woman. Authentic, charming, generous, witty, thoughtful, romantic, intelligent. She brazenly sexy (and I don't mean physically speaking), at the very least as beautiful on the inside as she is out, can rock a pair of jeans and a tshirt, cutoffs and a tank top, a sundress with flip flops, or a cocktail dress or gown with stilettos. She's comfortable in anything, and that includes her own skin. She's confident, self-assured, self-deprecating, but not self-serving. She, like me, thinks of others before herself. Most of all, she's not necessarily EVERY one of these but a healthy combination of at least a few. I don't expect to find the perfect woman but she will be imperfectly perfect.

Most importantly though I'm looking for a partner-in-crime: a bestfriend, travel buddy, lab partner extraordinaire. Someone who'll stick with it through the tough times when they do arise knowing the good times are fantastic... someone to grow old and wrinkly with who'll still want to pinch my bum in 50 years as much as she does tomorrow. Someone who thinks I piss pure excellence and believes the sun, stars, and moon rise and fall out of my ass, even though she knows full well that's impossible. Why you ask? Because that's the person I want to be with... someone I think the same way about. With that said I'm not in any rush to jump into anything and won't force it just to POSSIBLY have any of that with someone. Might you be her?

I'm one of the good guys as they say. I'm told this regularly and people always ask why or how I'm still single. Frankly, I'm looking for something magical, whimsical, and exciting, not just to date for the sake of dating, and I'd rather wait till I find it.
What I’m doing with my life
I flip/rehab/reinvent old homes and build spec homes.
I’m really good at
-Interior Design and Carpentry
-Raising rugrats
-Making people feel at ease and comfortable
-Turning comfortable silence into awkwardness
-Figuring shit out
-Putting people on the spot
-Relationships :) It's what I do (and everything that goes into one)
The first things people usually notice about me
I have kind eyes apparently and I make them feel like they're the only person in the room, as well as my confidence.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't like reading, but really wish I did as there's so many great books I would love to read. I'm a movie buff though. Some of my favourite tv series are Sons of Anarchy, Breaking Bad, Weeds, Dexter, Grey's Anatomy, The Walking Dead, How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory, and anything on Food Network. :) I don't watch a lot of tv, and no live tv except for Food Network. I tend to watch something before bed though as I relax.
Six things I could never do without
-Clean, ice-cold water
-My children
-Shaving equipment
-A means to cook
-Human contact, physical, emotional, mental, and intellectual
-I know this makes seven, but laughter...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What could be someday, how to improve my life or situation, how to build on or improve my self as I'm always a work in progress no matter how great I think I've become through evolution, offbeat ideas and issues, etc. I think a LOT.
On a typical Friday night I am
As cliche as this sounds, either out or in. lol It depends who I'm with at the time or which friends are available. I have no issue staying home on a friday night and cooking a nice dinner for myself and listening to music, watching movies, playing some Sudoku or Draw Something on the patio with a caesar, and if I'm with someone I love to stay in and do dinner and drinks and cuddles and stuff, but I'm also down to head out to a pub or karaoke bar, or go dancing, or hit a festival. I'm a yes man.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
*in.my best growly Christian Bale Voice* I. Am. Batman! I'll tell you anything if you ask. I have nothing to hide, nothing too damning in my past that I'm afraid to share, and really if I share and you don't approve or it rubs you the wrong way then we weren't meant to be clearly, right? A past is merely a story of where we've come from. it should be a welcomed addition, no matter how graphic.
You should message me if
You are awesome. :) No seriously, if you can laugh at yourself, dish it as well as you can take it, are up for new adventures but don't need constant stimulation and action to keep you happy, are cool with staying home and enjoying each other's company, love food and love to try new foods, love traveling or the idea of it at least, and think I'm pretty righteous on paper so far. If any or all of these things apply to you, then we should definitely talk!
The two of us
