It's been four years since the divorce. It was a nice break to get myself sorted out and really focus on being a dad. Now I'd like to share some of my time with someone special. While I'm not sure how I feel about jumping right back into a serious relationship, I'd like to start by meeting someone, making connections and seeing where things go from there.
I think it's safe to describe me as stable, secure, level headed and kind. Does this make me too much of a square, lol? I am literally an Eagle Scout after all.
I don't like games or drama - but then again who admits that they do? I also don't consider myself the "extreme" type. It seems like there are a lot of those profiles on this site. I love to hike, bike and swim but I don't have a lot of pictures as proof. I laughed when I saw so many pics of "dudes" showing their abs when I went looking at my competition. Isn't it more fun to find out what's under someone's shirt in person? Besides pics can lie :). Oh, and yes I do look good with my shirt off, lol ;).
My music taste is pretty varied. Beatles, Decemberists, Taj Mahal, Wilco, Ryan Adams, Gregory Alan Isakov, Sam Cooke, Claude Debussy, the list goes on.....
I love podcasts too: Nerdist, Doug loves movies, how stuff works, how did this get made, Joe Rogan Experience, Hollywood babble on, Hardcore History........
I like comedies and I'm a sucker for action and science fiction movies (most guys are). What is it about explosions and shooting at people after making quippy remarks? Having said that I do love a good documentary and have been known to enjoy a rom com or two. I probably shouldn't admit that I cried at the end of the Notebook. :). Some of my favorite movies include Big Lebowski, Spinal Tap, Help and Hard Days Night (Beatles), Back to the Future, and anything from Wes Anderson.
"When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down 'happy'. They told me I didn't understand the assignment, and I told them they didn't understand life."
