My self-summary
I'll be closing my account within the next couple of weeks. If we've messaged or you'd like to, let me know.

Some people get pierced. Some get tattoos. Some brand or cut themselves. I make bacon with my shirt off.
I'm an olive-skinned Southern professional. I’ve worked really hard in my life to become who I am. Being successful, to me means having the time to do what I want, which of course is to hang out with you.

Being called “daddy” is a privilege and I’m grateful for the time and conversations (silly and serious) with my two wonderful boys. I'm as comfortable at the opera as I am at a bowling alley; in fact, I'm at the opera a lot and I believe that a balanced diet is a piece of fried chicken in each hand.

I know the lyrics to just about every song by the Beastie Boys, David Allen Coe, Journey, and The Little Mermaid [you know, I kinda thought that would get me further in life]. ;)

I like to sextext and be flirty when my woman is at work or away on business, just to let her know I am thinking of her... I believe you have to take care of your woman and they in return take good care of you!!!!! .....I am looking for someone that is my best friend, my lover and my companion.

I'd like to meet someone who I make feel special and she makes me feel special. if the relationship continues, I need honesty (it doesn't all have to come out on the first date). I absolutely give that and expect the same. I'm pretty flexible after that. The rest is chemistry. No drugs, psychos, users. If the relationship sparks, the rest all falls into place. If you fall for someone, going out is great, staying home can be as thrilling. Looking for that spark, someone to laugh with, learn with, and appreciate each day with. I don’t need to be taken care of, but I would like to find a relationship where we take care of each other with open affection and verbal intimacy. I’m looking forward to meeting new friends, growing through experience, and that one bright possibility.

In the end, people will judge you anyway. Don't live your life impressing others. Live your life impressing yourself.

Who likes naked sock puppets? Show of hands?
What I’m doing with my life
I'm determining what the next chapter will look and feel like. Recently divorced after 17 years of marriage and not sure what's next. I always appreciate new experiences and knowledge so I'll likely include more outdoor activities, hobbies, day-trips, etc.
I’m really good at
helping you feel comfortable around me. I'm very outgoing, have a quirky sense of humor and can carry on conversation with just about anyone.
The first things people usually notice about me
is my sense of humor and open communication.
Six things I could never do without

Really? You can absolutely do without anything but the above....but would you WANT to? Different question
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what's next in life.....and that the national violent crime rate would plummet if they just sold churros in more places. Nobody has ever hurt anybody while holding a churro.
On a typical Friday night I am
curled up watching a movie at home
enjoying a cocktail alone or with friends
cooking dinner and having a cocktail/wine on the patio/porch
out enjoying an arts event
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm adopted
You should message me if'd like to know more, open for a casual meet, need to borrow a joke or get life advice for your pet hamster

Also, it would really help us both if you have recent pictures on your profile. Mine are all within the last year, most are within the last few months. Let's make sure we don't have any surprises if we meet.

And let's actually try to meet if we even begin to connect with each other. Don't know about you but I'm not looking for an "online" relationship. The only way we could determine if there is any spark whatsoever is with a meeting. Who wants to exchange seemingly endless strings of messages, texts, and phone chats? Every day, more and more people are choosing the internet over real life. Ask your doctor if escapism is right for you.

Looking forward to meeting that one bright possibility.
The two of us
