I am a "Date one person at a time" guy, I don't believe in playing the field. While I have left my profile up and filled in, I am *NOT* looking to meet anyone new at this time. I am actively dating someone and while I am always open to meeting new friends, I am not looking for more dates.
How to describe myself in a couple paragraphs.
If I were to ask my friends (and I did) they came up with "Painfully funny, slightly warped and scary smart"
I sometimes wonder why I ask my friends these questions.
I was born in Ireland, and moved to the US fairly early, I still have a bit of an accent.
I am a big person, big, not fat, just built to monumental proportions.
Past that, I am a single parent, which freaks some people out, but while I am incredibly happy to be a parent, I also have a live in nanny that makes it possible for me to manage to pull it off.
My life has gone fairly well all things considered, some wins, some losses, a lot of experiences that without I would just not be the same person. Overall I am rather happily me.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Coffee, dinner, spend some time wandering through some event and getting to know the person. All the "traditional" first date activities tend to rather restrain you from being able to easily interact and get to know the person you are with.
*Nothing* is worse than the dipsy duo. Dinner and a movie is old and tired, and if you spend your time talking during a movie you will be ticking off the people around you.
In the past I have done Car shows, RC boat races (seriously, it is more fun than you would realise, the one we went too was the 12-16 y/o kids it was hilarious) Icer Air, and a couple of random open air concert things, oh yeah, and the natural history museum... kind of, it was closed so it ended up a day trying to find a place that was "just down the coast" and stopping at every random thing that caught the eye.
If you are looking for normal, or a slow paced person, I am *not* the right one. My life is like an explosion in segments. Nothing bad but lots of light and sound.
