If you want to sum me up in one word, for the vocabulary challenged, it's fun! That's not all there is to me but it's my favorite part. People spend too much time being unhappy. I just refuse. I am not looking for drama, I'm not looking to be a sugar daddy or for a sugar momma. I enjoy the company of fun intelligent people and if you do too, maybe we can meet. I promise to be fun, witty, entertaining and I have never had a bad time on a first date. You won't either.
Everybody has something unique to offer, whether it be conversation, a way of looking at things, or quirks that are endearing. I guess I am just open to new people and new ideas. I say I am looking to date but nothing serious. I say this because as you read this I have not met the person I cant spend my life without. So I'm looking. I'm also a realist. I know that every person I meet (or even sleep with) is not gonna be my soulmate. This does not make me a player, it makes me an honest man who enjoys occasional sex. If you are opposed to this concept, feel free to pass me by but don't hate me for being honest. You won't get that from many men. If we enjoy each other's company it will develop into more. If not, who can't handle having more friends?
I am the proud parent of a beautiful boy and share parenting with his mother. He is my number one priority, and if you don't like kids (and he's a good one) we cannot have a future. I am an excellent time manager, and we can have plenty of alone time, he is number one but you can be two. I think what you do with your kids shapes the person they will become, so he does what I do. He loves people, music, water, good food and the company of happy people. If you are depressed, see only the negative, and are unhappy in your life, you will not like me. I am none of those things and will only depress you further because I believe happiness is a choice and have no sympathy for those who choose the other path.
Religion and God. I mention this for several reasons. Yes it is important to me. I am an unaffiliated Christian with a personal relationship with God. I follow the 10 Commandments and when confronted with choices of good or evil, I choose Good. My son is my first priority, and I am raising him with Godly principles, to be kind to others, to help people and to not be selfish. The rest of the doctrinal stuff I will leave to the "true" believers out there.
I am not into sports, could not care less about who is playing who, my mood is not affected when my team loses, and I don't need any excuses to sit around with my friends and drink. I like going to the occasional game but I spend the time people watching and enjoying my friends. You will never see me watching TV sports, I'm more of a movie guy!
For those of you who like what I wrote, message me, and we can exchange contact information. I can text chat with the best of them but don't do long voice calls because I can't multitask when I'm on the phone. I'm not looking for a long distance thing unless you plan to visit, I'm looking for that all around connection, but with the ability to see each other more than once a month without one of us having to fly would be more than ideal.
I know I wrote a lot here. I was an English major and a magazine editor in my original career. I just figure if it's all out there and if you're still reading then maybe it's worth a conversation. If I lost you along the way, heck, I probably just saved us both some time. Time is a gift. You're welcome! lol
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I'm an outdoors guy and if it's summer, and I'm not working I'm somewhere on the river, enjoying the sun, good music and the company of some of the best people I have ever met. Living in Colorado for 12 years I developed dual passions for skiing and boating and that's always fun to do together. In the snow I enjoy easy cruising greens and double black diamonds, depends on my mood and the skill level of my company. I'm not a lot into the bar scene nowadays and I find them hard to talk in, I love movies but that's not really a first date kind of thing, maybe second or third. I'm kooky about certain kinds of food. I'll drive a hundred miles for that one restaurant that I like, or that you do. I guess we'd have to talk about it a bit before we meet and figure something out that works for the two of us, or if you're comfortable enough, come to the river, jump in a boat and soak up some sun, music and conversation!
