My self-summary
Wow...I guess the most important thing would be communication, and the confidence to be open, and the willingness to compromise to achieve common goals. Compatibility obviously plays into it, the ability to care and be compassionate (and passionate!) Lots of "c"s there! A good sense of humor, but well grounded. Probably the best description that I ever heard was that in a good relationship,... each is willing to put the other's interests on a par with their own a good part of the time, and ahead of their own when necessary, and it's mutual.
I'm not looking for someone to follow me; I might not be the best person to lead in a situation, nor am I looking to follow someone, because the view never changes. I'm looking for someone to be beside me, and to have the confidence in the relationship to meet challenges together. The confidence in themselves that allows them to have confidence in others.

I am fun, spontaneous, and intelligent...a problem solver, and someone who isn't afraid to upset the status quo. I don't confuse mediocrity with excellence, and I don't accept apathy in those around a part of the solution, and not part of the problem. I have an ironic sense of humor, and I try to be someone who is worthwhile.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a mid-level area supervisor for a third party contract service provider. I kind of like to compare what I do to "jello-juggling"...think about isn't that easy! I'm also a contract spider killer, renowned worm herder, ( I don't brand them, tho...!)and the greatest microwavist alive. I hope to publish a microwave cookbook soon, titled "That didn't taste too bad!"
I’m really good at
My friends would tell you that I'm pretty good at making people feel at ease. I'm a jack-of-all-trades, comfortable just about anywhere. I can usually find a solution to problems, or I know someone who can help...
The first things people usually notice about me
I guess it would probably be my smile...I usually have a big, dopey grin plastered all over my's meant to be enjoyed, not endured!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I enjoy so many things, from travel to dining casually and elegantly; boating, attending the theater or movies, live music and concerts, everything from Jimmy Buffett to the symphony. Wine tasting, the beach, good friends and good times! My favorite movie is the African Queen, although I enjoy The Mummy series...just about any kind of music except rap, and I have to admit that I enjoy just about all types of food...from White Castles to sushi, calamari to prime rib, healthy to fast food...
I enjoy reading a variety of books, historical fiction is a favorite genre, mysteries, some of my favorite authors are Patricia Cornwell and Bernard Cornwell ( I don't think they're related!)...the newspapers daily...
Six things I could never do without
Well, first things in the morning, the company of good friends, honesty, integrity, my family, and of course, Einstein, my dog! (Einstein went to the big bark park in the sky, and Lulu took over his spot on the rug!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I seldom dwell on anything; I usually figure out a way of dealing with something, and then do my best to accomplish it. I'm flexible and adaptable, fairly quick witted, I can usually dress and feed myslef, although my daughters don't always share my sense of fashion....
On a typical Friday night I am
Looking for a good time with friends, whether it's eating somewhere and then going to a movie or a concert, live music, maybe a play or a concert...although sometimes it's nice just to sit around and watch a movie at home with a big bowl of popcorn...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a pretty good scout, and I spend most days trying to be the person my dog thinks I am. I guess I'd have to get to know someone better to share with them...
You should message me if
So many of the on-line sites are like test tube dating, using scientific matching...yeah, sure! I've been matched with one-legged midgets with a glass eye and a lisp that are into line dancing and bungee jumping, and who live in Guam...uh, no!
I'm seeking honest, attractive, intelligent women that haven't spent their lifetime collecting more baggage than the carousel at O'Hare, don't have more drama than Masterpiece Theater, and fewer issues than National Geographic. My definition of a "few" is less than 20...more than that, and it's "more than a few"... I'll answer those with recent photos.
The two of us
