I am a nice guy who recently divorced my wife of 21 years. She had an affair. I did not. Floored me and broke my heart, but I am ready to move on and find someone who I enjoy being with and who enjoys being with me. It's obviously been a long time so I will probably be fumbling through things for awhile.
I am a former editor at a newspaper, and formerly edited many of those stories that go on ehow.com. I now do professional voice overs for different companies all over the world from my home studio (website: rickmadewell1.com). I've been in a few movies and commercials. I was in Eight Men Out back in 1987 with Charlie Sheen and John Cusack. Now THAT was an experience... and Charlie was normal then.
I enjoy video games (have a PS3) and going to ball games when I can. I like to play golf and walk.
I like all kinds of music but probably lean toward soft rock. Only music I don't care about at all -- or just don't get -- is rap, unless it's Kid Rock's "Cowboy" -- that's kinda rappish and I like that one.
I am honest, giving, very affectionate to the right person, sincere, trustworthy.
I can sing, dance, do a decent Sam Elliott impersonation (have been hired for radio spots doing it...haha), play pool, bowl and have a good time.
I am looking for someone to laugh with. Seems like I stopped laughing years ago and I need that back. I would enjoy an honest relationship that could be long-term or just someone to have some fun with and talk to about life and its great times and its rough times. Maybe dinner and a movie the first date or two. If that's too common, we can decide together on something else.
I am a good listener and want to listen to and understand my "partner." I am looking for an affectionate person and if it leads to passion, that's great. But I am not on here just for that. I am probably one of those rare breed of men who really likes to get to know a person before taking that step. Immediate chemistry can happen but I still like to know a person before the sex thing. I look for niceness, somewhat bubbly or somewhat shy but willing to share her dreams and goals.
