My self-summary
Are you seeking a kind and thoughtful man?........Read on.

Have you ever been in a relationship where you didn't feel appreciated? That wouldn't be a problem with me as I am a giving man who can very much appreciate a good woman. It's been a long time since I've had something special like that and when I find it you're going to know without a doubt how much I appreciate you. I'm a good guy. I consider my self a true gentleman in every sense of the word. I treat women with the same respect I would want someone to treat my mother or my sister. I'm intelligent, affable, and fun to be around. Not into materialism or trying to gather the most toys. Family and relationships are the most important things in my world.

Are you tired of the bad boys? Tired of the egotistical jerks and D-bags who are only looking out for themselves and have no idea at all how to be giving in a relationship? I know that most women have some experience with guys who cheat and that is among your biggest concerns when entering into a relationship. I'm the type of guy who knows a good thing when he has it. I've been cheated on. I know how devastating it can be. It's a pretty s#itty thing to do to someone. My personal takeaway from the experience is that I would never put someone through that kind of heartbreak and you can take that to the bank.

I know that by the time a woman is in her thirties she's seen and heard it all. She's been burned, used, taken advantage of, lied to, cheated on, and had her loving heart mistreated by any number of men. They are sometimes jaded, cautious, defensive, and often angry and I can't say that I blame them. Once trust is broken again and again it's difficult open up one's heart. And I'll tell you right now that I'm as just frustrated by it as you are because it makes it hard for men like me to find a good woman because they feel we're all suspect.

At this point in our lives we all have our dents and dings...we all have a bit of baggage. You begin to think that maybe there aren't any men out there who are loyal, warm, affectionate, and possessed of manners and common decency. You've seen it all and heard it all and think maybe there are no men who are worthy of your love and trust. And it leads so many of you to wonder aloud something I've heard so often-- are any nice guys left out there? Yes, there are. You've just found one. I have a genuinely good and loving heart and I'm not afraid to open it up and share it with a loving and exceptional woman.

Yes, some guys do actually take time to read the profiles. I am one of them. I read all the questions too. Why? Because I'm looking to make a real connection and get to know someone. The guys who don't read the whole thing are the ones who are just looking for someone disposable so they don't care. I'm not one of them.

Women always say they're looking for a really nice guy. I'm one of those. So if you'd like to get to know a really, really, really nice guy don't be afraid to contact me. I'm a loving, kind, and faithful man with so much to give to the right woman.

And BTW if the beard is a deal breaker for you, I'd gladly get rid of it for the right woman.
What I’m doing with my life
Struggling to get by like everybody else. I'm happy with my life and happy with my kids.

I hate malls.
I’m really good at
I'm a great father to my sons who managed to turn out okay. I'm very proud of them. They're courteous, well adjusted, and eager to please. I did something right!

Being a warm, caring, considerate man. I'm not another one of these pushy horn dogs whom you no doubt have already encountered just looking for something/anything to hump! lol

Dealing with rejection. I've had lots of practice. Internet dating is good for that.

I know how to listen. I have a great sense of humor. I write well and play guitar. (Well, I'm not THAT good at it but..)

Here's one of my songs, you be the judge.
The first things people usually notice about me
In an ocean full of predatory sharks and and bottom feeders, I am most like a dolphin. I'm good natured, fun loving, playful, protective, friendly, and intelligent.

Swim with me!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Boy, this will take awhile....I'll come back to it.
Six things I could never do without
My kids. My guitars. The quest for knowledge and understanding of the world. A good laugh. My family. A cold beer. Springsteen bootlegs.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to make the world a better place?

Why neanderthals still walk the earth? (you know the kind of guys I'm talking assured I'm not one of them.)

What's so funny about peace, love, and understanding?
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually home. don't have much of a budget for whooping it up on the town but love to catch a good rock band or blues show when I can.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like to watch Sabado Gigante on Univision. I have no clue what's going on....but I find it fascinating.

I have shirts that are older than my children.
And I still wear them.

I like beets.
You should message me if
Let's change this into "you shouldn't message me". I'm not into women who are NASCAR fans, religious fundamentalists, people who fetishize guns, people who watch Fox News, get the picture. Those are big time deal breakers with me. If you are convinced that Adam Sandler is funny and Kid Rock is cool, we won't get along.

One more. If you think Donald Trump can make America great again, please pass me by.
The two of us
