My self-summary
"The sweetest kiss I ever got is the kiss I've never tasted." Where are you?
I'm a caring, respectable and responsible man who, like most people on here, is looking for someone who will be my new best friend from the opposite sex. If you're looking for honesty and integrity and a sense of humor, you just found your guy. If you want someone who can be a little crazy and not a couch potato, yep, I'm that man too!

I was married a long time with no regrets for the time we spent together yet apart long enough to not be looking over my shoulder and wondering about the past. I've worked hard in my life and always felt I could do most anything I want to do if I apply myself. I say this because as a youth I had little and rather than complain or look for handouts, I did what was necessary to be successful, however you define success.

I've done the hunting, fishing, camping thing. I did a little motorcycle riding (dirt bike) but that was in a past life. Sorry ladies but you won't see pictures of me holding a fish here and I don't have a Harley to ride on. By the way, if dangling a dead fish on a string is what it takes to attract you then I encourage you to stop reading right here - LOL!

Do I want more than a best friend? It's funny that you should ask. Yes I do and yet there is no rush to get there although I feel that clock ticking within. By this I mean that it will come and I don't feel compelled to force it to happen. I'd love to have fun with you but I'd much rather have fun with only you. Certainly a good friend is a great place to start. I wear my heart on my sleeve and I believe the more you give, the more you get in return. I won't last with a selfish person.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm still trying to figure out what I want to do when I grow up! Actually, I've spent my entire working career with the same company. It's a rarity these days. I travel sometimes in spurts but it seems to balance. I've visited many countries around this world. I coached competitive ice hockey for twenty years and sometimes entertain whether I want to do it again. Several of my kids were good enough to be drafted into the professional ranks. I think more and more about retirement now and that's a story in itself. I really enjoy rehabbing real estate and see myself doing this in my retirement just to stay active. It won't be "9-5" and an every week endeavor but it will keep me mentally stimulated.
I’m really good at
Fixing houses, building custom golf clubs, solving problems, massage, singing in the shower, reading minds :-)
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile. I still have all my Chicklets :-) Do thyey still sell Chicklets?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like sports, home improvement, comedy and self improvement, so books and shows along those lines are good. I enjoyed reading Many Lives - Many Masters by Michael Weiss. I like action or drama movies. Criminal Minds, Person of Interest, Numb3rs, Palladia, Home improvement programs, Tosh-O and some sports shows hold my interest. I'm teaching myself to play the guitar so right now I like "my" music best but I actually am a classic rock guy who listens to many kinds of music. I recently stumbled across a musician named Sixto Rodriguez from Detroit. What a great human interest story he has behind him. Thought to be dead by his fans, he is the most famous musician ever in South Africa. I'm more of a meat and potato's guy and I'm not completely lost in the kitchen. There is a fair list of foods I prefer not to eat. Sushi and cauliflower would be a good place to start
Six things I could never do without
Mental stimulation, Music for my soul, Food, Water, Shelter, Love, Inspiration, Sunny days & Your Smile. Ok, so I gave 9 and don't take orders well :-)
It was challenging not to mention golf here :-( That's where the screen name Two-Putt-Ray emanates from.... It's a favorite hobby, not my career.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think about how I want to spend my remaining years, who I might spend them with and where I'll live when I'm not committed to my current employer. I think a lot about the economy and the out-of-control direction America is heading in the hands of our elected bureaucrats, none of whom I feel care about us as much as personal interest, and how it affects me, my children and their children.
On a typical Friday night I am
Often times I golf and have dinner with high school buddies. 10-15 guys gather every week like clockwork and it amazes me how this has endured all these years. During the winter, it's darts night with the same crew and their wives. I'm one of three guys that shows up without an escort. Boo-Hoo. I like going out to listen to a live band on Saturday or when ever the opportunity arises. This could also be a dancing night with you however. If I stay home alone, that's okay too. I like my quiet time with my guitar. Just because I golf, throw darts, play guitar or like to rehab real estate or "whatever", does not mean you should love this too. I'll be happy to experience what you love to broaden my experiences.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think a woman with a pony tail and a baseball cap is sexy :-)
Oh - I took the age test and it says I'm 46, hence the age range below.
You should message me if
You should message me if you like my profile and just want to say hello. Life is short and I have beaten myself up several times for letting opportunity slip away. There is no better time than the present. If it's a bad fit, you move on and no harm. If it's a good fit, take advantage of the opportunity and know a door was opened for a reason. They say opportunity is where luck meets preparation. Did we not prepare our profile to have the best possible opportunity on here?
Now, if you read this far, there was a reason. Write something to me and ask a question or two. I answer all questions. I'm not writing to everyone who looks at my profile but I do answer anyone who took the time to show an interest by saying a few words and asking something that requires a response! Ok girls, time to find the message button and start typing... :-)
The two of us
