My self-summary
Mystery solved as to why I am single on 2-27-15. I was simply the wrong color dress! Should have been black blue, white gold or whatever color you see.

This is what I wrote earlier:

Ok, not such great feedback on the red velvet dress analogy. I I I'm not at all the woe-is-me kind. But damn, ladies I wrote it for you to ponder where dresses actually go that never ever sell. And, it a twisted sense of humor way, it explains a bit of how I feel.

I am a red velvet dress.

Once upon a time, I was a designer's dream. She made me beautifully from excellent fabric and nicely built to someday hug a lovely woman's curves.

I remember being featured in the store front display. Beautiful women walked by and some tried me on, liked how I looked, but said they would come back tomorrow. But, none of them ever did.

Eventually I was moved to the clearance rack and after 38 years, a woman finally purchased me for a cocktail party she wanted to throw. I wondered why she kept the tags on and receipt handy but quickly learned why when she returned me shortly after the party.

I was a little dirtier for the wear, but still shapely enough to be returned to the final clearance rack and once again placed for sale where I have remained for the last 9 years.

A few bargain shoppers do try me on once in a while and I don't mind even if it is for vintage giggles.

Still, here I hang yet hoping to be part of a beautiful woman's ensemble. I try my best to show well but secretly am facing every clearance dress's worst fear......being removed from the rack and cut up into rags for someone who will never know what a beautiful dress I was.

Won't you please come try me on while I'm still for sale?
What I’m doing with my life
I'm playful, goofy and pretty good at analogies. I think intelligence is the most important attribute in a relationship followed shortly by laughter. I have an endless desire for fun enveloped in a responsible package.

Most of my more successful relationships have been based on common activities like golf, curling, scrabble, home renovation, biking, as well as country music and too many other interests to list.

I believe you have to dream and seek in order to find and have. I don't want to grow old wondering about what opportunity I may have missed.

It would be wonderful share that joy of companionship with someone. Nothing better than having someone you trust with your heart.

Right now I'm knee deep in the renovation of a couple of house flips....Definitely trying to balance work/social.
I’m really good at
Strategic things. I'm really good at thinking outside the box although you'd never know that unless you asked. I'm pretty sure I should have been a business innovation specialist instead of a math dork.
The first things people usually notice about me
The strength to do what's right. I think its called inner conviction. Politically I'm in the middle. Definitely a social liberal but more likely a fiscal conservative.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Tend to love the romantic comedies! I'll listen to pretty much anything except metal and rap. Love the stories that music tells...Hate the glorification of gangsta culture.
Six things I could never do without
golf clubs
curling broom
hot shower
physical attraction
great communication
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My 3 kids. They are great kids and I am an amazing dad. Actually they aren't real kids... no real kids for me.. but as far as make believe kids go, they are pretty funny.

While some of what happens to us is accidental, a lot of who and what we are is because of vision and planning. Will retirement just come or will I be ready? Will I date anyone or do everything I can to find the right one?
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably thinking how nice it would be to have a great girlfriend for dinner, golf, curling, and who knows what else.

I also like to think about how to communicate more better.

Take the above paragraph for example. I actually did not mean having a girlfriend FOR dinner. I actually meant having a girlfriend WITH dinner. But, that sounds awful as well. Throw me a bone on how to say that???

Oh well....Pointing and grunts never go out of style for men. I'm sticking with that. Can't get that wrong! And, I do (mostly) understand English grammatical structure.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have an interest in the amazing differences between men and women. It makes for some really interesting conversations.

I am also partial to women who are sexually open minded.
You should message me if
You should message me if you want to.
