About me, lets see -- I'm a somewhat shy, laid back, hopeless romantic. I have a great sense of humor, love to laugh and I always try to make the best of whatever comes my way. I've been married or in long term relationships practically my entire adult life so I'm very inexperienced when it comes to dating. I don't initiate contact on here very often, but like most people I'm attracted to those who are attracted to me, so contact me if I appear to be someone you may be interested in getting to know. I'm very big on being responsible, caring, considerate, respectful, and honest, and would want the same from anyone I'm involved with.
I've lived a happy and successful life, but was apparently brain-washed through the years by adventure novels & Jimmy Buffett lyrics, because since going it alone at the end of 2006, I've been taking it easy and basically living for the day. I spent the first few years RVing around the nation enjoying one adventure after the other, enjoying life and trying real hard to avoid living normally again. That is until the money ran out... lol
But I gave it my best shot, and It was definitely one hellava ride...
However, there comes a time to settle down I guess, and this area is my home, so I've spent the last several years back here. I've been in a few relationships during that time with some very special women, but I just haven't found the one for me yet. Since ending both a long term job and relationship recently, I find myself at a crossroad in life where I'm not exactly sure what I want to do - where I want to do it - or who I want to do it with. I'm still living a somewhat free spirited lifestyle, living / working on my old houseboat most of the time while trying to decide which direction I want to take both personally and professionally. I probably shouldn't even be on a dating site because I'm presently not in the best position to be meeting / dating anyone new and I'm perfectly fine not being in a relationship right now. However, I feel that happiness needs to be shared and I do eventually want to meet that special someone who takes my breath away to spend the rest of my life with. And who knows, maybe meeting her now might just help define what direction to take going into this new chapter in my life, so here I am!
I guess I'm just looking for someone like me, who wants to live happily ever after --- at least every now and then... :)

I'd try real hard not to screw it up, in hopes of a second date...
