Ok so I have had this profile setup for a while now but never really put it to any use. I think I'm going to give this a real go at it this time.
So I've been single for a while, for various reasons, which I'll get into later but I'm at a place in my life were I know what I wan't and would like to see what's out there.
Since I don't want to make this very long, I guess I'll get right into one of the reasons I've been single for a while....
So I initially tried to convince myself not to mention any of this to early on, let alone write about it here but I have come to terms with the fact that this is a huge part of my life and have determined that I really don't have time for anyone who is not respectful of were my life is currently at..
So with that being said.. My life has been an incredible journey as a single parent of a beautiful 5 yr old little girl who is my everything. For the past 4 years it has been just the 2 of us and I couldn't imagine life with out her. This ride has truly been a blessing and she has certainly become my strength and my inspiration to be a better man and of course an excellent father. My daughters mother lives in a completely different state, so BM drama has never been an issue in my life. Plus she respects how well I'm raising our daughter.
So now that that that parts out the way *sigh of relief* lol.. I'm at a place in my life now were i'm ready to get to know someone on a more different level then i've given time to before. Someone I can be completely open and honest with, spend my free time with and possibly build something more serious. I'm such a laid back person and I believe in the power of Positive thinking, so drama is something that I do not condone.
I like to believe I don't have a specific type. I tend to draw towards people based on their personality and what makes them unique and stand out among others. Though a pretty face makes for a great first impression before words are ever spoken, I do also believe a beautiful personality could make anyone even more attractive. I have a high aspiration for learning new things and I definitely love exploring different cultures. I happen to be Mixed, Black & Irish (not that that matters) but I love both sides of who I am and I truly can not wait to visit Dublin, Ireland someday before I die.. I love being diverse, therefore, I could never discriminate anyone...
Anyway. I wanted to keep this short but I guess I had a lot more to say then I thought so I will end this here. Any thing else you wish to know, feel free to message me. I will try to respond to everyone, so hope to meet you soon. Well wishes and Happy Fishing!!
* Something I posted on FB recently that garnered a great deal of respect and a lot of attention, shared by many. I thought I'd share with you as well...
"Growth requires pain. – Be patient and tough, someday this pain will be useful to you. Those with the strength to succeed in the long run are the ones who lay a firm foundation of growth with the bricks that life has thrown at them. So don’t be afraid to fall apart for a little while. Because when it happens, the situation will open an opportunity for you to grow and rebuild yourself into the brilliant person you are capable of being."
I like to remain spontaneous when it comes to things like that. A typical night of, movies and dinner is boring. Lets do something one, or neither of us have ever done before, yeah. Now that's a first date to remember.
