My self-summary
Are you looking for someone who's sexy, smart, and secure?

I have a snarky, self-deprecating sense of humor that draws upon the tangential relationships I see between things. It usually emerges as a quiet, unexpected one-liner.

I have my shit together, and I appreciate when a man has his in a reasonably tidy pile. I'm ready to meet a man who wants to be in a relationship.

I'm always learning new things and taking on new challenges. I'm currently learning to play guitar, and I love it. I usually read two or three books at a time, and I'm a bit of a podcast junkie.

I have three sons, ages 18, 21, and 27, of whom I'm intensely proud. I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel on my parenting years, so I'm enjoying not having parenting responsibilities.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm learning to sail and I'm taking guitar lessons. To learn the rest you'll have to ask.
I’m really good at
Holding hands. Love that. On our first road trip, I'll put a hand on your thigh while you drive. I like to be touching.

Just chillin'. We don't always have to talk, do we? I like to just sit together hanging out in silence, maybe while holding hands.

Finding the humor in any situation. Some of the worst experiences make the best stories.

Collaboration. Years of doing team projects have made me a good team player and partner. I can consider all sides to a problem while focusing on the desired outcome.

I can take a cheap cut of meat, put it in a pot, and make you believe you're at a French bistro. I also took cooking lessons in Italy ten years ago, so I've got mad risotto skills.

Music. I love to sing and play piano or guitar. I perform occasionally in local bars and coffee shops. I'd love to meet a man who plays guitar or can sing a duet with me, but it's not a requirement. At the very least, maybe you'll want to be my groupie.

I'm also good at advocating for the underdog...
...and Pictionary.

The six things I could never do without
My family (that includes the dog)
Technology (though I hate to admit it)
Morning espresso (served black with sugar)
A good book (or two at one time)
My friends
My health
I spend a lot of time thinking about
whether or not I'm a serial entrepreneur, a serial dater, or a serial optimist.

I really hate online dating.
On a typical Friday night I am
If I've had an intense week, I need some down time. If not, I'm probably enjoying a happy hour with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I stuck a button up my nose when I was three. It stayed there for a week, because I was afraid to tell my mom what I'd done.
You should message me if
You are a man who is goal-oriented, intellectually curious, and loyal to friends and family. You've had a few ups and downs in life, but those were the experiences that gave you the strength and compassion you have today. You laugh a lot.
