I stand 6'5," weigh 240 pounds and wear size 15 shoes, and you know what they say about a man with big feet...we have to buy shoes on the Internet! :) Although I do have an intimidating look, I am really nothing more than a big teddy bear. I am secure and stable in who and what I am, I try to cherish each and every day with a smile on my face and goodwill in my heart. I believe that every day is a gift and I love to open the present! And if all that positive energy fails...I do know of a secluded dumpster where I can hide the bodies! :) I have been called handsome (Thanks Mom), been told my eyes are my most attractive feature and my sister says I am a great kisser (J/K)! I have been divorced since 2006 and have kicked nearly all of the baggage to the curb. I am the proud father of two young men, grandfather to two beautiful granddaughters with another one on the way. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Accounting and currently work for a tech firm and do real estate. I "lift things up and put them down" on a daily basis. I love to travel and explore, I have been blessed to experience places in Mexico, Europe and Korea. I will never drink and drive so I rarely frequent the bars. I am a contributing partner to the performing arts and enjoy going to the theatre to see the latest Broadway Musical. I love to cook, I make a mean omelet and a risotto/scallop dish that will make your clothes fall off. :) I do better than average maintaining a healthy lifestyle/diet. I love to garden but stick to perennials (they have fewer suicidal tendencies). I am a model for Harley Davidson (yeah, I don't get it either), I am part owner (one share of stock) of the 13-time World Champion Green Bay Packers! I don't hunt, fish, drink beer, own a 4-wheel drive anything or wear flannel but I am an avid Harley enthusiast which allows me to keep my "man card." I can paint ceilings without the use of a ladder. I am not a Native American, but if I were my self-proclaimed name would be "STRONG LIKE BULL, HUNG LIKE MOUSE, DUMB LIKE ROCK!" And as you can tell from this essay...I am a certifiable goof ball! :)
On the serious side, I am content being single and alone but I do ache to be a part of a great love story. I freely admit that I am not very good at dating and the "chase" because prior events have left me jaded and guarded but I want love to be my basis, not fear. If you are looking for a clone, someone who mirrors your life, I am not it! Lets accept our differences and love each other despite them. I don't have a great deal in the way of material things to offer, I will never WOW you with gifts of grandeur, but I offer you all that I have and all that I am. I have one simple criteria in finding love; it has to be easy. I want some0one who is easy to talk to, someone easy to be with, someone easy to love, it should just fit like your favorite pair of blue jeans. I am a hopeless and incurable romantic. I know my looks say one thing (like when did that guy get released from prison) but I am the type of man who will sit at your feet giving you a foot massage as we watch a movie or a football game. I love candles, a roaring fire, a glass of wine and a bottle of massage oil. I am a very affectionate man and I crave intimacy. I have had to suppress that side of me for way too long and refuse to do so ever again. So, if PDA's while shopping at the mall or in the frozen food section at the grocery store are not for you then chances are that I am not either. I am still looking for the love of my life, for the fairy tale romance, for the woman that compliments my world instead of complicating my life. To me, love shouldn't be a chore; with the right partner it should be effortless, you need to be each other's cheerleader, but that comes with acceptance, trust and strength. I want to be the man you spend the rest of your life with, not just the next weekend with. I have dreams of being someone's everything but I do not need to be their only thing!
