Decided to trim a lot of the fluff out of my profile...
Essentially, I'm a father of two children of whom I share custody with with their mom. My children are my life, and I would do anything for them. they do come first above and beyond anything else & those of you who are single parents out there would understand :-)
I work full-time doing odd hours which usually involves working at night and sometimes on overtime combined with my custody schedule doesn't leave a whole lot of free time during what most would consider "normal hours," so trying to meet new people is always a challenge for me. That's what led me here to POF.
I enjoy exploring, be it a day out in the car checking out the redwoods up north, or along the coastline, or being a tourist (or not a tourist) down in the city. I like to go on the occasional hike up in Hendy Woods State Park, about two hours north of Santa Rosa. I also enjoy a great slice of pizza, with a beer, and good conversation. I am quite fond of excellent hamburgers as well. SF Giants fan by heart but I do also cheer on the A's as well and have since I was a child.
What am I looking for? That is the $64,000 question I suppose. I guess that would be somebody to be a good friend with that first - so want to be a good fit in my life, to understand my humor as I am quite humorous and try to find the humor in almost every situation. Someone who would try to push me to be a better man in my life, and someone who isn't all caught up in drama, material items, money, or baby daddy issues (lol).
That's about it in a nutshell - want to know more? Send a message, I dare you! :-)
I always like to meet at a coffee shop for the first time. That way we can spend some time getting to know each other and relaxed environment & see if there's any compatibility. First meeting is success, then I will suggest a date to a place with a fun atmosphere like a pizza place. I'm a simple guy and I like doing simple things :-)
