I spend a lot of time thinking about
Being a dad... I know I will be a good one!!
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading... 10 years ago it would have been me "scoping out the babes", but now I like the simpler things in life... like trying out a new recipe or hanging out playing cards with my sister and her family... Weird huh? Man I use to be such the PARTY ANIMAL... Jagermeister... Weed... a good looking girl... that was all I needed... Now I just desire what my father had and who he was... and he was a great man... a wonderful father... and a generous man with his time...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I wrote it in the "YOU SHOULD MESSAGE ME IF..." Section of this site!
You should message me if
You wish to have fun, romance, intelligent conversation and dedication. I was a DOG for many, many years... I was not my father's son... I am ashamed of that... but that was because I got CRUSHED in my early 20's and thought all my father raised me to be was a CROCK... I realize now that I was WRONG in those assumptions... but PAIN, especially emotional pain, clouds oneself to oneself... for me it was for many years... years I refuse to remember but have to accept!
