I believe I'm fun to be around and have a good sense of humor....lightly sarcastic but not hurtful. I've been single since 1998. I'm 5'11", and 180 lbs. I was married for 16 years and have two great children....a daughter 27, and son 25. I love seeing them when I can, but understand that they are busy with their own lives, and friends. My daughter and son-in-law just gave me my first granddaughter in Oct. 2011. I was born and raised here in California, but have lived in New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Colorado. I attended three different high schools, the last being a Military School. I have a fraternal twin brother, plus two brothers and five sisters.
I was a professional photographer for 20 years. I'm open for just about anything, mostly except jumping out of airplanes! Sorry, I like going fast, love taking off in jet planes, and drag racing mine and my brother's 1967 Mustang. I enjoy watching all sports....but mostly college football and basketball. I grew up playing competitive Tennis, but play more golf these days.
I don't have the patience for sunbathing and reading lengthy novels. I like pets but prefer not to have one presently. I don't like imposing on friends and family to watch them while I'm away. Unfortunately, my friends have no problem asking me to watch theirs, lol.
Politically, I consider myself a Moderate/Conservative. I'm too pragmatic to ever convert to "Liberalism," but don't mind a friendly/spirited conversation, all in fun of course. I do wonder what life experiences led to one becoming a left-wing Liberal. Were these people dropped on their heads as children? LOL
I don't regularly attend church, but I do consider myself spiritual and believe in God. I've just never been much of a "congregationalist." I did recently attend church a few times while dating someone from POF, and I did enjoy that experience.
I occasionally visit casinos and enjoy Blackjack.
I'd prefer to date someone in Orange County or in close proximity. Long-distance relationships seldom work out.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Meet for a drink or coffee and see if there's chemistry.
