Nice Package ISO Great Woman

I'm a nice guy, a single dad (boys 15 & 16), and I'm putting myself out here in hopes of meeting someone to date regularly and will hopefully lead to a long term relationship. I realize there may be some false starts along the way, but please don't mess with me if that's not what you want.

You have seen my pictures, but I think I’m best viewed as a package. And as packages go, I’m willing to bet I’m one of the best. I would stack my package up against anyone on here, and I think you would agree, my package is pretty darn good (get your mind out of the gutter). So for my profile I’m going to tell you why I’m such a great package.

I’m pretty tall, just shy of 6’4”. That’s not strangely tall, just tall. If you’re tall that’s great, and if you’re not that’s great too. I once dated a girl who was 4’ 11”.

I was pretty skinny as a teenager, but I evened out over time and now I almost always stay within 5 pounds of 190. I’m active and work hard, so I don’t really need to go to a gym. Even though I don’t feel it, I am getting older, so maybe I should take up running or something for the cardio exercise. Hiking really works for that, but I may not do it often enough.

I was in the Navy for four years right after high school, so that makes me a veteran. I’m proud of that. I belong to the American Legion and the VFW, but I don’t really hang out at either one. The Navy was actually one of the best decisions I ever made. I’ve been to most of Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa, as well as other countries scattered around the world. I still love to travel, so if there is an adventure, count me in!

I used to be a software engineer and had my own software business. About 14 years ago I started a bronze sculpture company. I actually taught myself. So if you ever wondered where those things come from, now you know. I have sculptures with my name on them all over the world. I’m proud of that too.

I live in a big old house in NE Baltimore with a 2 acre lot. It’s like 110 years old, but I rehabbed it mostly by myself and filled it with lots of art and antiques. There is even bronze statuary all around outside. I think it’s pretty amazing. It’s both elegant and humble, just like me :-) You would probably like it here unless you’re a condo or new home kind of person. If you like landscaping or gardening, I can hook you up! I even have a golf cart with a pickup bed in the back! We drive it around just for fun too.

Oh, who is “We” you ask? I have two sons 15 and 16. Fine young men I should add, just like their dad :-) I’m super proud of them and they live with me half the time, and they both attend Calvert Hall. I’m not religious, but that’s a great school, and they both play sports. Did I say I was proud of them?

So it’s just us guys living here and it shows. We have a trampoline, a basketball court, tetherball, horse shoes and even a giant swing. So if you like to play, we gotcha covered. We have a hot tub too, but I’m thinking we need a pool. Want to go in with me and get a pool? We would have plenty of room for one :-)

What else is in my package? Well, I’m the type of guy you want on your team. I work hard, I’m honest and loyal, and I always have your back.

You can probably tell I’m pretty laid back and have a good sense of humor, but I can add this though. I’m very comfortable with who I am and the only people I care to impress are you and my kids. And your kids too if you have any.

Oh, I’m really nice and I never get angry or yell, and I don’t want anyone around who has a temper. That’s really important.

So you may be interested in me because I’m not hard to look at, but you’re gonna love me because I’m a great package. If you agree and think you might want to inspect this package for yourself, please send me a note. Include the word inspection so I know you read all this. That says a lot about you.
What I’m doing with my life
I have my own business. I'm a single dad of two awesome boys 14 and 16 and share custody with their mom. They mean a tremendous amount to me and I would do anything for them (please don't tell them that or they may take advantage). Like Joe Walsh's song, "Life's been good to me so far!
I’m really good at
Many many things :-) I've run a business for a long time, so I have all the skills that entails. I can fix or build just about anything. I've rehabbed two houses, but I've also built furniture and a deluxe "fort" for the boys just for fun. I'm good at seeking new ways to enjoy and experience life and appreciating the small things.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall, smart, and have a nice smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm a complex mosaic of tastes and always open to new things.
The six things I could never do without
My boys (young men)
Email
Internet shopping
Ride-on lawn mower
Hot tub

I spend a lot of time thinking about
I guess I think most about how to be the best single dad I can be. Obviously I think about the business. I think a lot about the whole prospect of being single. I think about the sad state of politics in our country.
On a typical Friday night I am
On Fridays I am typically working around the house and/or spending time with the boys. We like to go out to eat, go to the movies, hit the mall, etc. I actually know how to cook a little (acknowledging assistance from the Internet) and make bread. I enjoy trying a new recipe or cooking an old favorite.

I'm not opposed to a few drinks from time to time, but alcohol is not a big part of my life. I like waking up early feeling good and alcohol is not really compatible with that. I do appreciate good coffee and hot chocolate with whipped cream. I also enjoy spending some time in our hot tub just to relax.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I often wonder if all the questions on here are really too much information.
You should message me if
1. You're smart, witty and have a good sense of humor
2. You have a nice smile and enjoy using it.
3. You're tired of meeting the same tired boring men who have nothing interesting to talk about.
