The one thing I am passionate about...
Activities: fly fishing and scuba diving: family would be my children and grandchildren; educational and career would be software development; medically home birthing and alternative medicines (although I'm done birthing); personally quality time and physical touch. Saturday mornings lying around, out on a bike or hiking trail on nice days, snowball fights, long conversations, canoeing, rafting, skiing, fishing. Movies? I like thrillers, good guy/bad guy (or girl), comedy, star wars! Game nights. Group outings. All day in a boat, fishing with friends in the hot sun. Old couples holding hands. Novels. Scuba in warm waters! Warm beaches.
I typically spend my leisure time
Leisure time--seems like a faraway thing sometimes. I read a lot of books, fly fish, travel, visit family, sometimes just sit around in the sun!
The most influential person in my life has been
I lean toward those who are the active, attractive, fit, educated, outdoors types and are exciting, fun, together, respectful, patient, balanced, kind, calm, motivated. Have a photo on this site: I don't bother with ads that don't have them. A little bit of a bad boy side, but a lot of good man inside. Looking to connect with someone who enjoys many of the activities that I do but is comfortable with some separate or unshared interests. You must be single: not separated, not maybe--single. I'm not talking about you're dating other people, that's what this is all about. I'm talking about you have a wife, girlfriend, etc.
The first thing people notice about me
I'm very talkative, outgoing, and curious.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Last read: 5 love languages, Chapman--I liked discovering mine, my family's, and friends. Authors: Clancy, Fiest, Susan Murphy, Cussler, Dan Brown, Sanford, P. Anthony, Silverstein, Pat McMannus. Cold Running River (Cassuto). Technical, environment, outdoors, and fitness magazines. Loads of textbooks.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Health and abilities
- Children and family
- Friends and coworkers
