I hate this part of these date site profiles. It seems like everybody puts the same things here. Hobbies - yard work, reading, painting, shooting pool ( don't know if that's really a hobby). My goals are to try to live as happy and as meaningful of a life that I can. I'm a nurturer and a care taker. It's really easy for me to fit into the role of caretaker, sometimes to a fault. Laughter is very important and helps get us through so many situations. Family and friends are very important to me. I don't have many acquaintances. My friends are long term lifetime that you know you can always count on. I'm a very caring,compassionate person. I'm a good listener and I can also be a barrel of fun. I like lots of types of music. Rap and hip hop are my least favorites. Rock, country and polka are some of my favorites but I will listen to almost anything at least once.
