Im originally from the midwest, Ohio specifically. I spent a great deal of time in hay fields and working on farms. I'm Irish, I believe laughter truly is the best medicine and I love being with someone who feels the same. I am on here looking for someone I can laugh with, share great stories with and be very close with. I am not looking for sex- I don't need it, but it doesn't mean i don't like it, I'm just not that kind of dude. You're probably thinking at this point,"Yeah right. All guys are the same", and you'd be right... Mostly. I am truly not that guy, though. I just want a real connection with someone who shares my interests, is a complete and utter dork like I am and loves laughing as much as I do. Who doesn't want that, right?
I'm a single full time dad. I got full custody of my daughter two years ago and she stays with me the majority of the year. This doesn't afford me much free time but what free time I do have, I would like to spend it with someone awesome. I'm not looking for a mother for her by any means but eventually, I would like someone to be a positive female role model for her. That's much, much later though. Don't panic.
I am very confident in myself. I am fully aware of my self worth and would be totally fine not meeting anyone. That being said, if you do decide to take a chance on me, I can at the very least guarantee a great many laughs and quite a bit of hilarity. I have no shame and will do almost anything for a laugh, or several for that matter, although, it rarely comes to that. Hahaha
I have played almost every type of "rock band" instrument and I am a trained singer as well. Some of my favorite music to sing along to is anything from Alter Bridge to Fair to Midland, but I love country, rock, classical, folk, bluegrass and middle-eastern as well. I have a higher vocal range and love hitting the high notes. I am also the self-proclaimed King of Karaoke in Thurston county. Come at me.
My experience on here has been... lacking, to put it gently. Haha. A great many seem scared to hurt feelings or some other thing. Simply put, if I write you and you aren't interested, tell me. I won't press the issue further. Easy peasy, lemon squeasy.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
First date has to be simple. Not too extravagant but not tacky either. I love coffee as well, so for me, sitting down with a kind woman, perhaps with a story to tell, then following up with a walk would be my ideal first date.
