My self-summary
Hi, my name is Nick.

I work in data networking. I have a pretty good knack for technical things, and gadgets. Nothing in my life blinks 12:00. ;-)

I have an 12 yr old daughter and a 14 yr old son that live with me part time. I have been divorced for 4 years. An amicable no drama situation where the kids come first.  

I enjoy physical activity, and usually get in an hour a day or more at something. My favorites are bicycling, running, and long walks/hikes. The kids and I just discovered Disc Golf, so much fun!

I enjoy short term activity goals like Warrior Dash, Shamrock Run, and want to push myself to try a Marathon someday.

This year I did my first Tough Mudder!! Oh that was a blast! My son and I did the Providence Bridge Pedal, and both kids did their first 5K at the Great Bacon Race while I did the 1/2 Marathon this October. It was a fun year of new activity, now it's time to train for 2015!

I also enjoy books through the Kindle App, when I want to be at home and relaxing, and I tend toward the science fiction and fantasy titles mostly, but enjoy trying different recommendations by Amazon now and then. This year I am focused on books around scouting with my son, so I just did CPR and Wilderness First Aid so I have you covered on a hike to anywhere ;-)

I am a private pilot for fun, flying around the PNW when I get the chance. Haven't been up this year yet, with a busy schedule but the blue skies are calling to me...

So, about you and what I am looking for:

I am attracted to a woman who has kindness and broad mindedness about life. Someone who smiles easily and it shows though their eyes. I would like a partner that wants to be out doing things and experiencing new adventures, but can also enjoy down time watching a movie or reading. (Maybe we can read a book and talk about it at the end.) It would be great if you have some of your own passions in life that I can learn as much as I would be open to sharing things I like to do. (Pretty much any technical toys of all kinds, things that keep my mind active I am open to showing you.) A woman that is family orientated, open minded, playful and young at heart but can still be responsible and reliable.

Well, if you made it this far and found something interesting, drop me a message. :-)

I wish you the best of success in your search!

What I’m doing with my life
I am a part time parent of two active kids, so my life pretty much revolves around them and will for a little while longer until they have had enough of me ;-) I have two evenings a week, and every other weekend typically free to pursue my own things. I have enjoyed running and biking in the past (signing up for events in the local area) to stay fit.
I’m really good at
I am good with kids, making them laugh or keeping them interested in what is going on. I am really good with technical things in general.
The first things people usually notice about me
My energy, after they recover from my facial expressions that is.. In a social situations, I tend to come alive. You'd think I was mainlining caffeine...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Atlas Shrugged (for the story, not the philosophy of Ann Rand), Hunger Games (both books and movie), Game of Thrones, Glee, songs from the 80's, and I am most fond of Spaghetti, Steak, Burgers, and Pizza (Peperoni, Olive, and tomatoes.)
Six things I could never do without
My Kids
My Health
My Friends
(and on the silly side)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My financial future, and that of my kids. What race or obstacle course I can enjoy next... And just where ARE my kids anyway, it's too quiet... O.o
On a typical Friday night I am
If it's my weekend with my kids, it's what movie or game we will be enjoying after dinner. On my nights I look for times with friends catching up.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I probably answered way too many of the questions on this site to leave much for a new interest to ask me.
You should message me if
found something I did not answer in the hundreds of questions I have gone through, or perhaps I answered one that you want to know more about. I am pretty easy to talk to, be my guest. :-)
The two of us
