Hello everybody. Long about me ahead, just to be honest. Some you may like, some you may not, just being upfront. Be prepared lol. I have the app now so anyone who wants to chat, feel free to message me and say hello. I am a night owl and work the graveyard shift, so please be patient if you message me during the day. I work a lot of hours but find time to chat.
I read quite a lot, mostly science fiction, thriller, espionage, and horror. I have been writing since my teens. My poetry comes in all forms, by whatever mood I am in. Nothing major or published except for Wattpad. Just be sure to read between the lines. My musical taste is metal/thrash (Opeth, Metallica, Megadeth, Arch Enemy, Nightwish, Tarja, Lacuna Coil) as well as classical music and celtic (enya). I have a well developed nerd streak. Did a little fishing last summer as well as out on the golf course. Hoping I can get out more this year.
I have 3 daughters 21, 19, 16 and the middle one lives with me for the time being. Seeing them you will understand me much better.
I can only say that finding someone would be a pleasant diversion from my normal path in life. Goals are hard to achieve as I work during the night and am a night owl. I'm now feeling ready to walk a new path with hopes that someone will want to walk next to me. With my shift it is tough but I do work from home a lot. I'm a big guy, like a lineman in football. Those who truly take the time to know me, to know my heart, to know the level of care I have, the want to really connect with someone, then I am someone you could cherish. Life is too tough to go through it alone and I do have big shoulders to lean on. I'm rough around the edges. Rougher during the summer (the sun hates me and mosquito's love me). I go against the grain, so I am not a suit and tie-type. If you can see life from a different point of view, have an open mind yourself, and think the journey is just as important as the goal. Drop me a line :)
Final bit of info: I've been alone for the better part of a decade(on here for like 4-5 years now. Strange thing for a guy. Only a few friends besides facebook. Many reasons why. All I can ask of others is to be nice. I'm going to be a bit awkward upon first meeting ....or an overly compensating goof-ball. At least until I relax a bit.
Finally, my status is separated, has been so for over 12 years now just please don't judge me harshly. It is what is best for my girls thus it is fine for me. We both live our separate lives, separate homes. We get along enough to converse, etc. No drama there. There will be an end to it at the right time for my youngest. Now that I have climbed out from under the support pile, I can start thinking of doing things ,going out, making new friends, and even a relationship if lucky. Kudos to you if you read all of this;) Don't forget to say Hi even if you feel we aren't a match it can't hurt to have a good circle of friends. Have a nice day:)
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Well there are really a few different ways to go. Dinner and a few drinks or somewhere quiet where we can talk and get to know one another, take a stroll under the moonlight, walk in the park.....or someplace REALLY LOUD with a lot of Beer! LOL.....(this has been a public service announcement, use of alcohol in comedy does not support the rumor that comedian actually drinks said alcohol used in such comedy, please refrain from judgmental accusations that comedian is a drunkard, he is quite the opposite, but understands that others can and will like alcoholic beverages and does such skit/routines to regularly fit in with society. The preceding was a public service announcement fully intended for anyone goofy enough to actually read the whole thing!)
