is the best of places. I have a job I love,( I better, I own the company)great friends who proved themselves as true during a hateful, devestating divorce. I am a
one woman man, no secret agenda, no trying to relive my youth, just in a good place
emotionally, finacially, and psychologically.
What I am seeking in a match is a woman that is a lady, appreciates the effort I put
forth in building a solid, honorable relationship. I like holding doors, pulling out
chairs, and sending flowers for no other reason than I thought it was a good idea.
I have a brutally deep sense of humor, not always appropriate, but there isn't much
that I can't find mirth in, more often than not I'm the butt of my own joke, and I
own that part of me. I work in a very technical, and often difficult area of
the telecomm. industry, and I am very good at my job. All of that being said, I am
also a clutzy walking accident in motion, and I have the scars to prove it, but most
of all I am a man of passion, integrity, and honor. If these are the qualities that
you seek in a match, well all I can say is, please ignore the horrible self portraits that I shot for my profile , believe me, I'm only half as ugly in person ;>)
as I appear in the photos.
I work out regularly, 20-25 miles a day riding my bicycle in warm weather, playing
racquetball at my club in the cold months. I enjoy all sports, but frankly, I'd
rather be playing than watching ( I won't apologize for my honesty) and while I am
a loyal Chicagoian, and a penny ante gambler when it comes to sports, I am first and foremost a realist.No room for fanatical
fantasy if the Sox, Hawks( although who bets on hockey or baseball unless you're a degenerate gambler, I'm talkin' Pete Rose type of gambler, of which I am most definetely not)Cubs, Bears, or any of our state supported college teams are playing.
My hobbies include but not limited to motorcycles, scuba, travel, and photography/videography, I love my life and I want to find someone who wants to
share in all of the future's possibilities. Are you that person?
Movies: If it's been made in the last 30 years, I've probably seen it. I enjoy B-schlock as much as "Gone with the Wind", if I had to pick 2 favorites:Full Metal Jacket, and Fight Club( everytime I watch it, I catch some little subliminal, or subversive act, overt or covert, the movie is constantly teaching me things. And the writer Chuck Palaniuk is a genius!)
I love all types of live entertainment, music, theatre, comedy, I will give it a shot.
Same goes for food, don't knock it 'til ya tried it! And in Chicago, well we have it all, the worlds taste buds at our whim.
empathy,understanding, and consideration.
my sometimes overstimulated curiosity
block of time dedicated to a single persuit, foolishness. I'm up, open, and ready 24/7, just fill me in on the details as we go.
yourself from this year, jeez, it's not like I'm not going to figure out
when you sandbagged me.
