"Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after."
Henry David Thoreau
So why do we fish?
- I'm first of all a Dad - to 2 good kids - boy and girl. Both are active and I like being part of there lives. I enjoy gathering with family and friends, going to theater, new restaurants and skiing. I grew up in Irish Catholic home in Connecticut ( I am still Irish) as the oldest of 9 kids with 6 sisters so I'm pretty relaxed, am comfortable with crowds and I put the seat down. I want to enjoy a drama free life with someone that smiles a lot , laughs and has a positive attitude. Musical tastes are eclectic with Jimmy Buffet, Elvis, Beach Music, Oldies, Latin ( Mana). Pink Martini, Opera, Country, Christmas and even the music my teenages like. Like to watch football ( Chargers) , college basketball(UCONN) and lacrosse.
I like old cars - and have had a few restored ( although my rule is not to drive it a great distance from house that I.can't walk home - just in case).
I like horses when they are winning at Del Mar race track.
Yes I can cook - but cleaning is not my forte. I like to BBQ and cook Italian food.
Favorite activities are the World Beach Boccee Ball tournament, watching horse races at Del Mar Turf Club, attempting to surf ,backyard BBQ's and pool parties, skiing, hiking Torrey Pines and Moonlight Beach.
Did I mention laughter? Its important to laugh .
I would like to meet someone that is fun, radiates confidence, relaxed and is quick with a smile and slow to judge.
Is it you? You got this far ...... a drink , a sunset and a few laughs are just a few key strokes away!
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
First date - nice restaurant overlooking ocean. I like Georges at Cove in La Jolla or my new favorite Bull Taco at Cardiff Beach..Montage has best view.
