A little about me...
I grew up in the South Bay area of SoCal a child of the 60's, with all the various cultural influences that implies. Spent the majority of my pre-teen/teen years riding and racing and building dirt bikes. Graduated high school at 16 and bummed around Junior College for awhile until I eventually graduated. Joined the Air Force soon after and stuck with that for 10 years. The AF sent me here to Omaha and I've been here ever since (1979). Munge all that together, and I am who you think I am.
3 grand kids, which I thoroughly enjoy. I love just hangin' out with the 2 boys doing guy stuff. Imparting the wisdom of my years gives me a good feeling, too. And I really dig the hugs.
I take advantage of every opportunity I can to attend the many live outdoor music concerts here locally. If you were at any of this summer's Village Point, Stinson Park, Shadow Lake, or Playing with Fire events, you likely saw me there with my grandkids.
Somewhat of an Apple fan boy. If I was 40 years younger it's likely I would be working at the Apple store.
More of a spur of the moment guy rather than to get all wrapped up in planning. Want to spend more time traveling to as yet unknown destinations with someone I care about.
About the one I'm looking for...
I am looking for…hmmm…hard to really narrow it down. That person I 'click' with, who I quickly feel comfortable with to talk and laugh and flirt and share opinions as well as intimacy. Like an AT&T commercial…Its not complicated…it's just chemistry. Of course, physical attraction is as important to me as anyone, but I cannot convince myself I really have a 'type'. Some of the things that gives me a second take are red hair, a well placed tattoo, a sexy pair of shoes, and a girl with an 'edge'…some combination of any number of things that all together just works. Also known as "swagger". Love any girl who has mastered the art of the subtle flirt. Not so much what you say as how and when you say it and hours later I am still replaying it in my head.
There's still a lot of places I want to go and things I want to see and do. This is the start of my third act, so the time to get started is never going to get any better. I want someone to do new things with me and start making new memories right away, cuz there’s just so many summers and so many springs. Let's write a bucket list and get to work checkin' it off.
I'd just like to add...
My goal here is to find some new friends and ultimately a romantic partner who’s in it for the long haul. A friend of mine asked me recently what I want. My response…”to fall in love again” (not at all an alpha male response). How sweet it would be to drive home because there is no place else I’d rather be than just because I really have no place else to go. Come home to a partner who is truly happy that I’m just there.
