First off...my pictures are current. .Good, bad, or otherwise that's me. I'm not always so grubby though, but I tend to get that way when I'm working or playing. I know how to get cleaned up as well.
My profile has always shown that I am a dad, but I have never given any details...until now. I have never been married but I have one little girl that is nine years old. I have been raising her all alone since she was three days old as we lost her mother at the hospital. I have always been good with kids but I had never even held a baby. In spite of being scared to death I learned quick and managed to keep her alive and in one piece. Lol. I have always respected and admired single mothers, but now I am in awe at how easy they make it look. I never did figure out how they hold a child on their hip with one arm(don't think I didn't try, lol). Anyway, so now I'm even better with kids and love being a dad. Life is one big adventure for my daughter and I get to be the hero! On the down side however, so many of the best moments of my life, a first smile, laugh, footstep. . . I experienced alone. There is a world of difference between an experience and a shared experience.
I have read so many profiles here written by people seeking the "love of their life" or "soul mate". I believe that you cannot find either one... you have to create them. If you consistently treat some one as if they mean the world to you...they will tend to. Treat them as if they don't...then more and more they will mean less and less to you. It's really that simple. Too simple perhaps. So many of the things we pursue, search for, or try to understand get overlooked because we expect them to be bigger or more elaborate than they are. The tricky part is finding a partner willing to practice the same policy. Some one that doesn't interpret kindness for weakness or find their attraction for you diminished by your devotion for them.
