After a decade-and-a-half of being re-singled, I've grown to wonder why it seems like it gets harder to meet people as time goes on; seems like as one gets further from one's divorce, one should be more easygoing and less likely to see faults in potential mates. Is it in developing comfort in being alone? Is it more a function of simply getting older?
Hopefully, that gave everyone something to discuss; hey, I'm looking for platonic friends as well as romance! If you're interested in the romantic part and think I might have potential: first, thank you for considering me! I'm laid back and liberal, happy and honest...well, I was clever the last time I filled this out; I'm going for a more direct approach this time around.
Also, you better not be allergic -either physically or mentally- to cats: I do share my condo with Brian and Stewie, and they're not going anywhere. Above all, no hypocrites! Say what you mean, mean what you say, and do unto others the way you wanna be unto'd!
I am optimistic, honorable, and content.
"...Like the fool I am and I'll always be-
I've got a dream; I've got a dream.
They can change their minds, but they can't change me-
I've got a dream; I've got a dream...
I know I could share it if you want me to,
If you're going my way - I'll go with you.
Moving me down the highway
Rolling me down the highway
Moving ahead so life won't pass me by..."

Work: I have "changed lanes" on the highway that is my career of driving/people moving: I now work for a retirement community as it's "Lead Driver," which means I'm kinda the #2 person in their Transportation department. The company I've been working for is really generous with it's employees if they need days off. This is a company I like a lot -despite some boring days- and where I hope to be doing what I do until I can't do it any longer...unless I get an offer to host a Liberal radio talk show, teach history, or get paid to coach football, none of which I'm particularly qualified for.
According to my kids, being "Dad."
Laughing, and putting others at their ease.
I make a great omelette!
I like a wide variety of music; basically, if a song/artist moves me in some way, I like it; my ipod list spans almost fifty years.
I like almost all kinds of food, but I am allergic to white-meat poultry (strange but true). While I do like some spicy foods, I'm not going to get the Super Red-Hot Fire-Engine hot sauce just because it's there; I'd prefer not to lose control of my bodily functions later on...
Football: how much I love the game itself (not just a given team), and that I really should get involved in coaching again.
I've also gotten to ponderin' how OK Cupid can rate anyone as being "less mathematical" than myself; one would have to be resorting to counting on ones toes!
My condo, and the updates it needs.
