My self-summary

I'm looking for someone who is kind and who is attractive to me. Someone who makes me smile, laugh and enjoy every day of life. I want to spend the rest of my life with someone special and fun. Let's talk and get to know one another.

Who I am....
I'm 47 y/o. I have just recently had some significant life changing experiences in the last 6 years of my life. I do want someone in my life but I am not looking to get married right away either. I do not want to have children of my own at this point in my life, however, I am not against dating someone who has a child. I work with high school kids for a living, so I like older kids more then the younger ones. I want a significant other, I want a confidant; ideally I'd like a life partner. The woman in my life needs to understand a few things about me:

I am a special education my job wears me out quite a bit, I don't go out during week nights during the school year. I moved in December 2015, to a much newer and nicer place then where I had lived the last 15 years but it's only 3 miles from the old biggie, it's exciting to have a new place to show off and entertain in.

My dog recently passed away after 14 wonderful years with me. She was so important to me and I'm not looking to run out to find a new one, I'm sort of an old soul that way but I will adopt another dog or two before my time on earth ends.

I am a football fan and I am a HUGE hockey fan. I love the Blackhawks, I try to attend all weekend games with my season tickets that the Blackhawks play when they are in town. I would really like to have someone in my life who enjoys sports and has some functional understanding of sports.

I am not close with my family. I read a lot of profiles of women who say they need a man who is close with his family. Well that's not me....Sorry! I don't hate my family members, we're just not close. I have two surviving sisters who are 12 and 14 years older then I am, so besides the fact that they are from a different generation, there are also personality differences. I communicate with one of my sisters a few times a month. The other sister and I don't really speak to one another. It's a long story and I'll be happy to share that story with someone once I've met and connected with them.

The most important thing I've learned in the last few years is that life is short and that there are no guarantees as to how long we'll be here. I'm trying to make the best of life with what I have now and hopefully improve upon that. My goal is to retire from education after working at it for 20 years and then relocate to warmer climate and do something different (that next career is still in the works but I do have ideas in mind). So if you are interested in taking a chance in meeting a good guy who is fun to be around, has a serious side and isn't ashamed of being laughed at because he walks a little white dog in daylight; please don't be shy and reach out to me. If I'm interested in you I'll write back and if I'm not I won't be cruel to you because feelings are two way.

Hope to hear from one of you soon and if I don't best of luck in your search!


What I’m doing with my life
I'm a high school special education teacher in the Northwest Suburbs.
I’m really good at
Taking care of my dog, watching hockey and football and I do a great job at my job. I'm handy with technology and I have a bizarre memory for details about innocuous facts.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm fun, animated, self deprecating, empathic and I have a keen sense for the feelings of others. The eyes give it away every time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Reading the Game of Thrones Series
Movies: Braveheart, Heat, Goodfellas, Pulp Fiction, Swingers, The Hangover and Bridesmaids.
Shows: I love shows on: HBO, Showtime, AMC, FX and BBC America
Music: Huge U2 fan, also love metal and 80's music
Food: Anything but within reason, I try to keep it healthy most of the time.
Six things I could never do without
1. My career
2. My dog, Sophie
3. My friends
4. My Blackhawks season tickets
5. The Cincinnati Bengals
6. My outlook on my health goals
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The second half of my life and how I'm going to make it the better half!
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually at home watching TV and getting caught up on those things that I have put off from getting done during the my sleep!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a pretty sensitive guy when push comes to shove. You can probably tell by the picture of my dog in my photos.
You should message me if
You want a man in your life who will treat you right, you can have fun with and is willing to grow to become better with age. You have to accept my dog too!
The two of us
