I am an open minded, easy going, and dedicated father of two boys. I believe myself to be as honest and dependable as they come, and I believe your word should mean something, so yes, I carry the "nice person" gene. I take pride in everything I do from work to parenting to relationships, but it will come with plenty of humor. Even though I have my serious and organized characteristics, like being a good father and working hard at what I do (AF and civilian pilot), and take everything in stride and not too seriously everywhere else. I enjoy laughing and making people laugh.
I just moved to CA this year, so I would enjoy finding someone to enjoy with me whatever comes next. I use this site, because I find dating in my 40's "so much fun" that I want to try to maintain multiple conversations with as many woman as possible. This is much easier than the bars I go to every weekend, and I don't have to drink a ton to make stuff up. And I find communication in relationships, soooo easy, that I want lots of them. LOL ..... Ok, maybe really because meeting someone in my daily routines, especially after moving, is very limited. My boys are my top priority, but I find sharing my time, whatever that is, to be much more appealing with someone else.
I know who I am and what I want (and always have). I am just in no hurry to meet someone who doesn't. And I since I am very happy in my current life (and well, have pretty much always been very happy) I am not trying to make-up for lost time.
I am not interested in keeping up with the Joneses, so you will find that I prefer to make my own path while keeping it simple. I've filled the "hard working years" square, and now prefer to enjoy, more than achieve, (unless they are synonymous). I find humor VERY important, commonly dry or in the form of sarcasm, but any shape will do as I find it easy to laugh and smile...... even if at myself. :)
Diversity is important, so I don't necessarily prefer someone just like me, but hopefully we compliment and appreciate each other. I love the outdoors in every way, from hiking or kayaking, to just hanging outside at a cafe, but I am happy anywhere. I stay fit and active but enjoy quiet time as well. I can, and will, try almost anything, and will most likely have fun, even if its not something I would want to do very often. And yes, I eat fairly healthy and organic most of the time.
The key for me is to always learn and evolve, while being who I am. All relationships require effort, but If we get each other, its easy :)

As a pilot, I travel (not international anymore) so it comes with a unique schedule and time off. And if you have read this far, you may wonder how the distance would work between our cities and/or my travel time. Well, email me back and lets find out. It's not like you don't like time AWAY from men as much as you like time with us. :)
