I'm awesome and you should message me, if you're normal. That's pretty much it. The kids are grown and pretty much on their own, and I've been single long enough to know what isn't a match for me and yet single long enough to know that having a perfect mate trait list pretty much just guarantees me a future lonely old cat lady status, and I'm not even that fond of cats so that would be tragic. Just be a solid guy with a sense of humor, a good heart, the ability to pepper in a 3+ syllable word every now and then and also support me in my love of queso and affinity for the rarely used gym membership and we'll be off to a good start.
If you send me a message and I don't respond, I'm sorry, truly. This site can be a bit overwhelming and it just means that I feel, read or see something in your profile that doesn't click with me. It's unfortunate, but at least it's honest. Best of luck to everyone, I hope we all find what we're looking for.
