My self-summary
The fast and hard facts:
I'm a teacher.
I have four adult children.
I've been divorced for many years.
I do go to the gym, but am built more like Sylvester the Puttycat than Sylvester Stallone.
I want a long-term, intellectual, emotional, and physically monogamous relationship.
I grew up a country mouse but am happily a city mouse now: I can change the clutch on a Ford F150 but I'd rather watch live theatre or go to a poetry reading.
I don't spend twelve hours on Sunday watching sports on television but if you want to go to a sporting event, I'll be happy to eat nachos and watch the half-naked, painted man, lose his mind when the other team gets the puck into the basket and touchdowns a homerun.
Your taste in music, wine, television, and fashion have less to do with our ability to connect than your willingness to engage in meaningful conversation.
Baggage: got a full set plus my carry-on bag, but I'm aware that it's mine, not yours.
What I’m doing with my life
Teaching, learning, exploring and growing (more emotionally and intellectually than physically, I hope).
I leave the door open to possibility for the future. I do have goals and plans but if there's an opportunity that comes a knockin, I can improvise and adapt as well.
The only thing I will not entertain, is a future of negativity and whining about how unfair life is; got that merit badge, thank you very much.
I’m really good at
Making you your favorite meal, sharing it by candle lite with interesting and entertaining conversation and then finding the braker-box in the basement (hence the candle-lit dinner earlier).
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm open, friendly and Irish.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Too many books to list. Tim O'Brien, David Sedaris, Pam Grout to name some favorites.
I'm a guy so I like movies with cars that chase guns and explode, but I also enjoy a well written screenplay and compelling characters.
I love live theater but I don't go to enough plays.
I'm an 80's kid when it comes to my playlist but I'm also open to anything that doesn't have "a little twang in it."
I was raised by a chef, so please go put on some music and open that bottle of merlot, I'll be handling the cooking this evening.
Six things I could never do without
1) 78.09% nitrogen
2) 20.95% oxygen
3) 0.93% argon
4) 0.039% carbon dioxide
5) 1.0% water vapor
6) and dark chocolate
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Stories I've read.
Stories I've told.
Stories I've written.
Stories I want to write.
On a typical Friday night I am
Fighting ninja-pirates (one at a time obviously).
Saving orphans from burning buildings.
Curing terminal diseases by staring into the eyes of the sick with a sincerity no microbe or virus can withstand.
Brushing my teeth,
bringing about world peace,
then bedtime.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm Batman.
You should message me if
Only message me if you're not upset that I'm wearing a shirt and do not have a motorcycle in any of my profile pics.

*I may share a photograph of a vespa with you someday, but that would obviously come after the first date. I'm no hussy!*
