My self-summary
I’m not a big fan of this online approach to dating, but it seems the best option of those readily available given I work alone! I am emotionally available and ask that you be as well. I get along well with my ex and have a reasonable co-parenting arrangement with her resulting in a 16 year old I am extremely proud of! Family is important to me as it should be to you and your friends are the type that have your back…as you have theirs.

I’m honest to a fault, open, an excellent communicator, affectionate (as appropriate), chivalrous, passionate about life and respectful. I’m not going to say I’m perfect…far from it I’m sure but I am constantly striving to improve on many levels and I'm certain I have a lot to offer the right lady. I’m seeking someone who is (eventually) open to a monogamous Long term relationship. I trust your profile and photos accurately describe who you are today. I would love to find someone who enjoys some of my interests but I am open to learning and enjoying some of your interests too.

Do you like to cook…dance…listen to a variety of music (though I'm most partial to blues, rock, & even upbeat classical)…stare at the stars, discuss anything from a to z, including challenging and even intellectual stuff? Do you like the smell of the ocean on a warm summer morning? Do you enjoy a good cup of coffee or tea? Like going out for fine dining or to casual pubs? Enjoy going to art shows or concerts? Does a lazy Sunday of boating, beaching or curling up in a hammock strike your fancy or would you rather go hiking or biking up north? Do you want a guy who will treat you like a princess... perhaps be served breakfast in bed from time to time (I wouldn't want to spoil you completely!) and get you laughing so hard on a regular basis you’ll be able to cut back on the abs workout?

Do you have high hopes and aspirations for this most important set of chapter's in your life? Do you want to see the world, experience new things and be able to look back with no regrets? The old motto that nice guys finish last is getting a tad tiresome and I have no intentions of finishing that far back in the pack much less last...This nice guy is going to make someone very happy someday soon! So let's get to it...Please say hello if any of the above sounds appealing!
What I’m doing with my life
I work pretty hard, but like to play hard too. For newer activities, I'm finally getting around to teaching myself how to play the guitar. I've been starting to write a lot, and am actually working on an adventure novel which dips into philosophy and religion too. It's quite a challenge but fun too... perhaps I'll finish it someday and it will be a best seller- Yikes, wouldn't that be awesome!

I picked up a sea kayak last summer and am looking forward to regular, perhaps even daily paddles around the seacoast and a few island hops camping up the coast too.

Sailing as often as I can this summer, while probably not daily at least a few times a week.
I’m really good at
Cooking gumbo, seafood, grilling and smoked salmon...
I can actually dance and enjoy you?
I think overall and in spite of the challenges I'm a pretty good Dad, and that's really cool.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
It's frankly an endless list... but a handful of noteworthy mentions would include Ayn Rand, Patterson, Dan Brown...Casablanca to Blade Runner...Most any music except rap or hip hop and old style country...Especially enjoy The Blues and classic Rock.
Italian, seafood, grilled most anything
The six things I could never do without
My son
A good camera
The Ocean..smells, sounds, on it, in it, under it...
I almost regret it...but I do like my new I-phone a lot!
Good food & drink
You(?) Ok so I need counting lessons too...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Selling my house and buying a sailboat. Perhaps living aboard for a while...maybe taking it south for a winter or two...
You should message me if
Anything I've written resonates at all with you. Please have current photos. At the risk of coming across as shallow, I do ask also that you be considered by most to be at least somewhat attractive, have most (all would be nice) of your teeth and that they be some shade of white, not be large enough to consider trying out for the Patriots Defensive line and it would be great if they didn't have your photo up at the post office too.
