My self-summary
I am a really nice easy going 6’1” average guy. I have been married in the past and have two older daughters in their twenties. I was born into a large family and have 7 siblings. My Father and Mother were very hard working parents and had to be fairly strict with all of us. Because of that and the values they instilled in us make me the person I am today. Now I was not a perfect kid by any means. I was the only sibling with a nick name in the family. Maybe I will tell you… I was a very industrious person growing up. I don’t remember ever having any obstacles in my way except for not paying attention in grade school or high school. Now that does not sound very good. But actually, I did absorb more than I thought (more later). I entered a technical college and soon after I enlisted into the Air Force. I was a teen during the Vietnam Era and with a high draft number I still enlisted. I found the Air Force to be to this day one of the most important things I have done in my life. It was easy for me to adapt to their ways since I was from a large family. I was able to travel around North America and Asia and did not just stay on the bases. I was out around the people where I learned, did and saw more than 90% of humans get to. I guess I could go in for hours but I will leave that for another time. I came out of the Service and started working for a large computer company, IBM. Computers were unknown to most people at that time and I was lucky enough to work for the best. I learned and absorbed everything I could. Time passed and I married and moved to South Carolina, went to college at night and graduated one of the top in my class. Now you may understand why I said I did absorb more than I thought I did in high school. I helped raise 2 young bright daughters and was fortunate enough to start my own company and learn to grow and fail doing so. I said fail! Yes sometimes we need to fail in order to understand where we are and what we are doing in life. I did learn a lot during those years and now I can say I have one of the best jobs where I can utilize all of my skills. Failing in my past helps me to help others not to fail. I really enjoy what I do and also enjoy my life and all that is around and in it. We are not here forever as you know. I found this out the hard way when my best friend died when I was 13 yrs old. My best friend was my Grandfather. At his funeral service the sermon was about where we will be once we leave this world. I felt at ease and knew my Grandfather was in a better place and I may get to be with him again. There is more about all of this but I know there is time for all of that later. I want to share this remaining time with someone that wants to share it with me. Are you that person?
What I’m doing with my life
Enjoying the work I do and being the best at it. I enjoy educating younger people to progress in life and hopefully spending my life with a loving woman that loves and understands me for who I am. Walking my Bichon Frise and keeping active, biking when my tires have air in them, looking at my ice skates I have had since I was younger and keeping them sharp, working in my yard when it needs me, and spending time with my friends when we can.
I’m really good at
I feel I am pretty good at many things. But I am really good with repairing just about anything, now listen, I do not want to just be your personal handy-man. I am really good at opening your door when we go out. I am really good at many other things but you will just have to find out.
The first things people usually notice about me
I guess my Gray/White hair. Ha Ha… I feel people notice I am an honest, kind, loving, intelligent, articulate, funny and fun guy. These things I feel are really who I am.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love Sci-Fi, instruction, Geek/Tech books and Audio Books. Of course Sci-Fi, Funny, and the 3D Kids movies we take our Grandkids to! I have gone to shows in Las Vegas and enjoyed most of them. I like all kinds of music. I keep an open mind on music which I love to listen to. I do not like all the vulgar language used in some so called music. I do like just about all foods. However I really do not like translucent seaweed! Really!! Oh greasy and most fried foods do not appeal to me. (I do love southern fried chicken though!) I love home cooking and like to go out to places that prepare good food. I like to help (if you want me to) cook. I do have a Big Green Egg and can grill a great steak! That is if I can find some good meat here in South Carolina! Let me share my spatula with you…
Six things I could never do without

A Loving partner to share the love I have. I want to think about you all the time!

On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing, may be cooking out or going out to dinner for something delightful. With either I would enjoying a glass of wine, a beer or martini. Might watch a movie or pick something from the tivo/dvr.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Well if I have to, My nickname my siblings gave me is “Critter”
You should message me if
You’re someone that thinks they may enjoy meeting me. A non-smoking single woman that takes steps to keep their self in shape and not just letting things go. Understanding that eating properly most of the time will help keep you healthy and better able to stay fit. I own ice skates, bicycles, love to swim, and think going to the gym and/or being active are good things. Are you looking for an honest, kind, loving, intelligent, articulate, funny and fun guy then please message me.
The two of us
