Well, edit 14 has arrived. I have the app now so anyone who wants to chat, feel free to hit me up. Now 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. My poetry comes in all forms, by whatever mood I am in. Just be sure to read between the lines. My musical taste is metal/thrash (metallica, megadeth, overkill, testament, and many others). I enjoy a lot of the new black/symphonic europeaen metal ( Opeth--new fav!)Arch Enemy, Nightwish, Tarja, Lacuna Coil) as well as classical music and celtic (enya). My nerdiness shows in the form of video games, gaming and comics. 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 20, 18, 15 they have different aspects of me. One is daydreamy-whimsical, the next serious/scholarly and the youngest has the attitude & angst. Seeing them you will understand me much better. As to my goals, 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 and I'm finding too little time to accomplish this.
I'm a big guy, like a lineman in football. I won't say that I wouldn't be the greatest find you will make here, I don't say that to put myself down, I just like to be honest on that stuff. Those who truly take the time to know me, know my heart, 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 if you'd like to walk along beside me as we go through it.
Poetry example 1 :)
From the meeting of our eyes, she will see my hearts leap
From the touch of our hands, she will feel my heart break free
From our first hug, she will feel my hearts care
From our first kiss, she will know my heart falls
From reading my words, she will read my heart's love
From a single sigh, she will know my heart is content
From a single whisper, she will know my heart's flame
From everything we do, she will know my heart is hers
.....and I would have it no other way.
Sorry I had to remove a darker piece I wrote here due to too many negative comments on it. Was just trying to give a more complete view of my writing styles.
Funny, I have been accused of being too nice now. For those of you who think such of me I give you:
Dark is the flesh of night
So simple to tease and dare
Sultry and deep are her eyes
Open to the pleasures hidden from light(ok, its just a sample, geez!)
A few parting comments, I'm rough around the edges. Rough during the summer. I go against the grain, so I am not a suit or executive-type. I pay for my decisions with my long work hours. The gloom is something I may write about, but it does not rule my decisions and attitude. If you can see life from a different point of view, have an open mind, 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, a strange thing for a guy, unless he is a monk, lol....(of which I've been accused, lol) Few friends, etc. Many reasons why. All I can ask of others is to be nice. I'm going to be awkward or even quiet ....or an overly compensating goof-ball.
Finally, my status is separated, have been so for over 11 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 massive drama. Now that I have climbed out from under the support pile, I can start thinking of doing things or going out. I've been alone for all but about 5 months of the past decade so its a bit tough to get back into meeting people. Kudos to you if you read all of this;)
Well there are really two different ways to go. Dinner and a few drinks 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!!!! BEER GOOD!!! 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!)
