My self-summary
I know few of us will get past the picture and the decision that we make there. I am no different, we all need to feel that spark, right? The problem is that the "chemistry" that we all seek is so hard to digitize ... This requires even a bigger leap of faith than "real life".

People have described me as heart and soul. They tend to say they see me as smart and passionate, and that is what I try to bring that to the table. I am told I have a good sense of humor, and I believe that life, like any good action movie should have a sharp and smart laugh every minute or two. Any action movie fan knows the best weapon in a period of impending doom is a good one-liner, right?

To me a relationship is about companionship, partnership, shelter, passion, and peace. I think our time together should be the payoff for everything we put up with during the day. It's important to have someone who you know is behind you 100%.

I love bringing interests of mine to you, but I also I think the exchange of experiences, is one of the best things in a relationship. And I think that when you love someone there's nothing better than seeing them in full bloom with sparks flying everywhere. That's the payoff for following you to wherever your passion, excitement, and desire can be found. I want to see you in that light. Show me your favorite places, and I'll show you mine!

I am loyal to a fault. I am enthusiastically romantic and affectionate. I just like that in a relationship. There is nothing terribly confusing or lukewarm about me. I wear my heart on my sleeve, and I have no problem showing affection. I am a hand-holder, a door-opener. I'll sit on the same side of the booth with you if you'll let me. I love to bump and laugh in the kitchen while making supper with a bottle of wine. And I am the type that will not be able to be within arms length of you without stealing an occasional soft kiss on your shoulder (or the back of your neck if we are alone), and hug from behind, or only semi-discretely resting my hand on the small of your back as I walk by or stand next to you ...

While I am considered passionate, but I am not prone to anger. My general philosophy is, increasingly: "Don't sweat the small stuff ... wag more, bark less ". I believe your life becomes what you focus on, so focus on the good stuff, the things that make you happy ... I believe the relationship is always more important than the issue ... And I always keep that in mind.

All of that being said, I'm pretty much just a guy. Jeans and a Jeep with a football in the back. Flannel and a fire pit with some beers. Grilling and baseball games. I clean up pretty well, I can handle myself in any setting, I try to be conversational and competent in as many areas as possible, I like to think I am a lot more mature about it these days, but in the end ... I'm basically a guy.

And I don't believe there's a "honeymoon phase". I believe you can be totally smitten and adoring of someone for a lifetime. I am looking for someone who also wants a warm, affectionate, playful, fun, mutually supportive and romantic relationship to come home to.

Robert Brault said that what we find in a soul mate is not something wild to tame, but something to run wild with. I've got some time left, I'd like to find someone to run with.
What I’m doing with my life
Working in radio and as a writer, trying to get two kids through college. I am also working on staying healthy, and handling all the changes that come with this stage of life.
I’m really good at
I know it sounds a little egotistical, but I am very, very good at parenting and I love it. And my kids are my proof. They are amazing ... My ability to write is a gift ... It has taken a while but I am now really good at knowing what's important.

In terms of relationships I am romantic and devoted. I am loyal and committed. I am not a couch potato nor am I sports obsessed. I do not give away days any more. Every one counts. Every one can be an adventure. Every one can be memorable, even for the smallest reasons. And it needs to be that way. That's the big lesson here.
The first things people usually notice about me
The two words that people usually come up (that people tell me about!) are passion and intelligence. I'm no genius, but intelligence what comes up. As part of my job I need to be able to talk about things I know very little about. I know how to turn what I don't know into an intelligent sounding question. I think that often fools people. To me it seems like the more I know, the more there is to know.

Physically, women often mention my eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love eating out ... love spicy and adventurous food. Mexican, Thai, BBQ, anything with character! ... I like it when chefs take a favorite staple and gives it a little twist. I love to cook as well.

Movies: Twister, Hunt for Red October, A Few Good Men, National Treasure, A Knights Tale ... A good escapist adventure sprinkled with explosions and a few good laughs. Again, I'm a guy.

I am a Tom Petty guy, AC/DC, Bruce, Big & Rich, John Hiatt. ... But my musical tastes run all over. It's literally song by song for me. My MP3 player is a study in randomness. I don't pay attention to genre boundaries ... I play some (very little) guitar, sold them for years in another life, so I tend towards garage band stuff ... two guitars, an organ, bass and drums, a good song and good vocals with harmony (especially two-part). All of that leads me to new country a lot, but that's where that kind of music is happening ...

Not much for reading novels, not enough time, but I read the net, papers, magazines constantly. I really can be interested in anything.
Six things I could never do without
My kids
This chance to get it right
My Jeep and a four legged pal riding shotgun
The river. I have lived on the river most of my life. Something about it ... Especially on a full moon night with a fire pit going.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Wow .. how long to do we have?
My mind is always going. That's often the problem.

Being the best dad I can be and helping my kids to the best life I can ...

What's ahead ...

And figuring out what to make happen, and what to let happen
On a typical Friday night I am
Fridays are tough these days ... It's more about what I'd like to do, which is to get off of the show, drive home to someone I love and just enjoy being with each other ... building a life together ... right after we have some laughs and wine cooking supper.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Oy ...
I'm not a very private person. Especially not in relationships.
Where do you want to begin?
You should message me if
You don't need the 6-4, athletic and toned guy making $150K a year (It's amazing how much you see that...), you are looking for another go around with a relationship. I am who I am. I'm not going to be asked to model for any of these sites. I am a good guy. If it clicks for us, I'll treat you well, and I'll value you and the time together, I'll make you laugh, and I'll try to be the part of the day you look forward to (and/or escape to), if you do the same for me.
The two of us
