Being a dad to two wonderful kids, (17 & 13), who are with me 50% of the time, and an adult daughter, (25).
Weighing and wrapping up meat, cooking, housekeeping/maintenance, cat sitting, swimming, playing wallyball, remodeling/home improvement side jobs, playing music, gardening, and eating ice cream.
If you're looking for someone to go para-sailing with, in Costa Rica, I'm probably not your man, at least for the time being, as my schedule wouldn't allow it. But a weekend getaway would be a welcome break!

Seriously, I don't know, I'm a bit humble.

My kids, when they're not with me.
Music, it's always going through my head.
How I'd really like to find love, and leave this on-line dating behind.
Sometimes I get the menstrual cramps, real hard.
I amuse myself.
I'm a little disappointed that there are many who don't comprehend this question, (the keyword is "willing"). "You'll have to get to know me..." seems to be the popular answer. Why would you pass on the chance to share something amusing, or interesting about yourself?
