I've become painfully aware that my profile sucks, as so far women I have messaged either ignore me outright or flee in terror (some I've noticed even deleted their profiles, I only ever ask to talk). So, with that in mind, I'm redoing this section by doing what I do best, ramble on about random stuff about me. Here goes nothing...
I've been separated 6 years now. We are mutually done with each other, remain polite for the kids sake, and generally stay out of each others way. Divorce is, of course, a complicated thing and is taking time to get to. I didn't plan on being a Gregorian monk, so I am ready now to move on and not willing to sit dormant til the ink on the paper's dry.
I've got 3 awesome kids, 2 whom are "out of the nest" and my youngest is entering high school. I usually have her on the weekends, but she would understand if I needed a weekend or time to date.
I've only had 2 relationships in my life, the ex and a woman I worked with. Tried the dating thing, which turned to a fwb kind of situation, except I couldn't separate my feelings. I "fell" for her, but it became clear she was not into me emotionally, so we broke up. I learned that the fwb situation doesn't work for me. When I engage intimately I cannot keep from making it more in my head that it means to my partner. For the future I want to take my time and get to know someone and let the feelings grow from that instead of a roll in the hay done in haste.
I guess I'm a bit old fashioned. I believe that being a gentleman is still appreciated, and dinner/movie night is still preferable than clubbing. For an initial meeting we should have lunch, somewhere quiet where we can talk and see if we're a match. I pay, of course :D
I said "other religion" up above, by that I mean I believe that something is watching over me, I have proof of that which I'll gladly talk about when we meet, but I do not believe in an omniscient, blackmailing babysitter watching and judging whether I ate ham on a Wednesday or not. I do good things because it makes me feel good to do them.
Yea I'm a bit of a liberal...but I don't like to talk politics.
I have a wide taste in music, only I don't do country, mainstream pop, or gospel. If its got a beat I can dig it.
A short list of the tv/cable shows I'm into: The Walking Dead, Justified, the recent Fargo series (so good), Game of Thrones, TrueBlood, Sons of Anarchy, From Dusk til Dawn (the new series on El Rey network, a superior-to-the-movie version), 24-Live Another Day, basically I'm an action/fantasy/horror nerd lol.
I haven't seen a lot of movies lately, cause going alone is lame, but I'll watch just about anything.
I like games. Board games, card games (except poker style, can't bluff or lie worth a damn), role-playing games, video/computer games, etc. Its the kid in me I guess.
That's it for now, I'll put more if I think of anything!
