My self-summary
Who can take tomorrow
And dip it in a dream
Separate the sorrow
And collect up the cream

The Candyman can
Causes he mixes it with love...

I work at a hospital and some of the nurses refer to me as “The Candyman”. Probably because I try to always keep a supply of chocolate in my locker for them. They sometimes need a little boost, having a bad day, patient not responding well to treatment, or just finishing the 4th 12 hour shift in a row. I wish I could separate the sorrow, can't, just do what I can.
I'm very happy with my life now, but there is room for improvement that can be brought but that special lady that I'm searching for. I want someone to do things with and for.

Now for the serious stuff:
I'm a firm believer in freedom of choice as long as it brings no harm to others.
I smoke, trying to quit, but from the questions on this site I would be better off to be running some sort of scam to take advantage of you ladies. I keep my nasty habit clean, and never, never blow smoke in the faces of non-smokers. Smoking still a deal breaker, package deal much more than a single bad habit.
I'm a house keeping lead man in a veterans hospital by choice. You have a "REAL MAN" who has carried his load, and part of ours, for his whole life and who is humiliated because he is sick and can no longer take care of himself. Who is going to clean up behind him, treating him with kindness and respect? Not much money in this. Deal breaker?
I'm a member of Mensa. Don't go to meetings but I love the information I receive from them. Only a very few people are aware of this fact. I did nothing to acquire the intelligence, my freedom of choice here is only how I use it.
I enjoy the company of women more than men. Tired of hearing of their macho days, fighting, drinking, chasing women etc. Give me a good discussion on home improvement, landscaping, or how to deal with the current going on of our children.

In a nutshell, I'm gentle but strong enough to bare the winds of life.
What I’m doing with my life
Gee, good question. How about living it to the fullest possible, even without a mate. If this means my goals for the future, the future is not written and I learned the hard way that the best laid plans of mice and men ....

From the movie "Harvey"

Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, "In this world, Elwood, you must be" – she always called me Elwood – "In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant." Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me.
—James Stewart as Elwood P. Dowd
I’m really good at
I have a very high mechanical aptitude, can fix or repair almost any thing. I'm also very good at getting along with almost everyone. Oh, less I forget, random acts of kindness.
The first things people usually notice about me
I always have a smile and comment for everyone. They say I'm a nice guy so if you're into “bad boys” I guess you have to keep looking. I tried but they said I wasn't pulling it off. Sorry for your loss if this is what you want.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'll read almost anything, and I have, except romance novels. I might like them but I still haven't read one. My current favorite is Dean Koonz.. Movies are varied, mostly adventure,but who didn't enjoy Shriek., Shows, Castle, Criminal Minds, etc. Music, Ventures, Floyd Cramer, and most other types. Only thing about music, I must understand the vocal, and the song must not be vulgar. Food, cooked.
Six things I could never do without
My faith, my family, books, music, friends, creative thinking
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What age is too young for me. And why does every one on this site, (including me), expect a different result when we keep trying the same thing?
How do I let you all know the man I really am? A lot of you say you like intelligent men. How can I phrase my answer without sounding arrogant? You want kindness, why would you believe what I say? You want someone to have fun, do I list the 100 ways I can put a smile on you face. You exercise and want someone in good health, does running a weed eater for 6 hrs. straight in a tall field of grass count. Some of you look at the age, my dad was mowing a friends grass at 85 and mom is still going strong. I've probably have another 25 years of active life.
What do you want in a life partner?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm intelligent, and I would give almost anything for a good conversation.

OK, you would find out anyway. I own the movie South Pacific.
You should message me if
If you want good conversation and willing to entertain a different viewpoint. And please, please give me something to respond to. I have a lot of trouble with the "want to chat" text.
NOTE: If I'm outside of your stated age group I probably won't send you a message. If you see I have visited and you would like to talk, let me know.
The two of us
