I'm an able, employed man with two children to whom I am usually willing to lay claim. However, my employment is not the kind that puts me in the same tax bracket with Aristotle Onassis, so if you're looking for that dental floss tycoon or Tiddly Winks magnate with a yacht and lots of weekend jet-setting to exotic coastal enclaves, I am not him. And even if I was, I would probably just buy a nicer car. Not that having the option to go scuba diving in a giant vat of strawberry jello in Madagascar doesn't sound like a great weekend, it's just not the place I'm in right now.
I enjoy all sorts of outdoor activities like hiking and cycling and golfing and playing soccer. I seem to lack the ability to sit still for very long. Sometimes, this is a feature, and sometimes, it is a bug.
You should enjoy music. But only the really objectively good kinds. Which, naturally, are the kinds that I like. There may come a time down the road where an opportunity will arise for me to poke fun at you. I will probably do that. You should not then hesitate to needle me. I can have thick skin...except for the areas where I'm baby smooth and soft. I don't have any tattoos or piercings, for what that's worth. If you do, well, that's OK, too. Unless they're neo-nazi tattoos. White supremacy tendencies are a deal breaker. Other than that, I've learned over the last 40-odd years that people are who they are and that if they're going to change, they're going to change. If they aren't, they aren't. That's the reality and who am I to argue with it?
You should know that I remain tremendous friends with my ex-wife. We still do things together with the kids. Divorce does not have to be ugly and engender hostility and mean-spiritedness. It's divorce lawyers that tend to engender hostility and mean-spiritedness...along with serious expense.
I'm not looking to get married. I'm looking to meet new people and do fun stuff. Having said that, I'm not interested in doing anything life-threatening like sword swallowing or alligator wrestling.
Kind of hard to say. Some women think it's cool when the first date is a helicopter jaunt over the Grand Canyon followed by river rafting down the Colorado followed by shooting big game animals and roasting them over a fire while someone plays classical guitar and gives them a massage...at the same time. Other people think a nice lunch or dinner would suffice. I'm open to either...but we'd need to find someone who plays guitar. I play piano and we sure as hell aren't hauling that in a helicopter or a raft into the Grand Canyon.
