This is a complete revamp of my profile. So, if you've stopped by before, please give me another read.
I am currently surviving colorectal cancer. Yeah, yeah, butt cancer. (It was actually in my large intestine, but "large intestine cancer" isn't as funny as "butt cancer"...) I will be in chemotherapy until August 2013, and recovery probably until about Labor Day. (EDIT: The chemo is OVER. YAY. August 30th is the day I either celebrate or start on my will...) This certainly gives a couple of people a chance to get to know one another. (EDIT: As of August 28, 2013, I am CANCER FREE! Who's ready to celebrate my second chance at life?)
I'm also putting it up front that I'm Atheist. Now, this doesn't mean that I will belittle your faith or your love of a supreme being, but I've dated women who didn't see that "non-religious" tag on my profile, so I thought I had better put this here. If you're someone that wants a man who 'walks with God/Jesus', then I am not your man. However, if you're open to getting to know a human being who has an intellectual streak and likes debating both sides of any issue (not just faith), then you should click that "Message BNSFDash8" button below...
I have been divorced about 5.5 years, and have had my share of dating adventures. But what I am looking for now is a companion - the person who'll stay up with me watching DVD's, driving to strange locales, eating out, going to the theater - be it legitimate or multiplex; a relationship that builds over time. I want to make that one friend that looks forward to seeing me, getting a silly text during the day, heading to the Rockies game on a whim or planning a trip to Wrigley Field in 2014. (The only major item on my 'bucket list' - it'd be a bonus if I somehow ran into CM Punk there...)
I do look forward to intimate moments, but I am willing - and wanting - to wait until the time and place is right for both of us. Yes, I know we're considered 'middle age' (although I seem to have crested the hill and am worried about picking up speed), but I have had more than one experience where the intimacy came too soon before the friendship - and the resulting train wrecks were a thing to behold...
My work is left at work, and my personal life is left at home. I'll talk to you about my day, and will want to hear about yours, but you won't see me dragging a laptop home to get 'caught up'. If someone wants to share my life, I don't think it's fair to make work the 'third wheel'. Nothing more disappointing than your significant other planning a surprise, only to need to cancel it because work gets in the way.
I have my weird little quirks, as I'm sure you have yours. Yes, I watch WWE on Monday and Friday nights, and I do like to sit trackside and wait for that specially painted locomotive to come through. But I have a DVR so I can watch WWE whenever I want. And there's some very pretty spots to watch trains at. Some even secluded and romantic. I hope you can show me the little quirks in your world. I'm more than willing to go to a crafts fair if you've sat in the car while I took photos of a freight train. :)
Let's get to know one another, exchange songs on our iTunes playlists, share a couple meals and whatnot... and see if we're worth each other's time, preferably before we become intimate.
This ride is so boring by one's self, and there's places I want to share with someone...
After some E-Mails and texting and maybe a phone call or two, the logical first step is meeting at a coffee house or a restaurant, where we can feel safe, as well as being able to get to know each another better. The initial meeting is not so much a 'job interview' as it is a 'feeling out process'. If things go well, a walk around a park or a fun light recreational activity helps to ease the stress and promotes more conversation. And allows to plan, hopefully, for the first 'real' date!
