Date single man from Alabama, United States. I have been divorced since 2004. My children live with me most of the time and I am active in their lives. While the "Mr. Mom" activities have taught me to braid hair, paint nails, and even one instance of coloring hair (I don't see how you ladies can stand the smell), I wouldn't trade my children for any others in the world.
I work a lot at home but often have to do short trips mainly in the tri-state area. The rest of the time I spend with my family, youth baseball, and decompressing with mindless activities from my work schedule which sometimes has me on-call 24/7.
Having been on my own for most of my life, I can sometimes be impossible to argue with. I don't have a problem making a mistake, getting something wrong, or having a misunderstaning but do like to have logical reasons for correcting a mistake other than "because I said so". My point is that a person who argues for the sake of arguing has no place in my life. Understanding another person and having reasons for reaching a compromise is very important. I am not lying when I say that it takes a strong woman with a good sense of humor and doesn't need constant affirmation in order to hold my afections. Co-dependent and weak-hearted need not apply. I do not want someone around who regurgitates the mainstream media. I am teaching my children to gather information from multiple sources and form their own logical opinions. I would prefer a woman who is capable of the same.
I have goals and dreams which are starting to come true. While I would love someone to share these moments with, I always have and still can make it on my own. My children are first and a strong woman who loves children would understand that.
Other things of note is that I can cook (not just run a grill but actually cook). My daughter is already better at baking than I ever was but I still have her beat in other areas of the kitchen. I do not typically do recreational reading unless it is an outstanding sci-fi or fantasy series. I try not to have too deep of conversations about politicians or religion though I will discuss political issues.

Date men and women from Alabama, United States. You'd think after traveling the world and the country for years it would be easy to describe who you are and what you are looking for.
I enjoy life and try to live every day to its fullest extent and definitely like to surround myself with people who do the same. Positive and motivating influences are such a blessing. Education is important, the desire to see the world and what's out there, to experience new things. Take some chances yet plan for the future as unexpected as it will undoubtedly be.
I enjoy going out on the town and having a night in cooking or enjoying a movie. Its all about the company you keep and the freedom to live your life.
I grew up in California and went to college at The University of San Diego. Now I find myself in Birmingham and I'm ready to start the next new chapter. I just got back into playing tennis.(played some in college). I like to keep myself in shape and eat healthy. Love cooking as well as checking out new places from sushi/sake nights to mexican/margarita night. I'm a non smoker. I have no kids but I definitely want a family. I make my living in the finaicial markets as an equity/futures trader and I sing on the weekends for fun.
I've learned to appreciate life and to not get to worked up over the little things. I miss the west coast from time to time but I'm enjoying the 'southern hospitality' and my new home.
A couple years ago I began to realize how important family is to me. I've done a lot to reconnect with mine, spend more time with them and look forward to the future of starting my own someday.
I look forward to hearing from you.. :)

Date someone special from Alabama, United States. I enjoy working on almost anything. I love building so many things. I'm a 3-d design engineer, auotcad, pro/engineering, solidworks. Just from that I'm also a computer geek. But I also like working on my Car and my truck. I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty.
I enjoy bike riding. I did most of my motorcycle riding on dirt bikes someday I would like to get a GSXR 750 or 1000. ATV riding is much safer than street riding. I would like to find a young lady that like to go out and have fun. Movies, concerts, car shows, drag racing, biking, ATV, motorcycles and boating.
Meet people from Alabama, United States. my friends describe me as quiet and kind. i enjoy reading, crosswords, movies and computers. i enjoy going out to dinner and am looking for a kind female companion between 65 and 85 years of age. I am not looking for a long term commitment however i would like to find someone who likes to have a good time and that enjoys spending time together. i enjoy going to the beach, playing games, movies and sporting events. I am currently retired from my lifelong job of engineering and product development. I like to stay active in my community and enjoy meeting new people. While i am not especially tall, i am of an average build with salt and pepper hair and bright blue eyes. While i am not extremely athletic, i get around quite well for my age!
Date a soulmate from United States. Me in a paragraph is always difficult, but here we goвЂ¦I am a network administrator, but when I grow up I want to be a National Geographic photographer. IвЂ™m crazy about photography and the art behind it. But my main passion is my son. He is my hero. His smile keeps me smiling.
I have had many friends describe me as a caring and honest person with a passion for life and its experiences. True. But to me, that passion is best spent sharing with others, especially someone you care about. And when that person cares for you as much as you care for them, things are just that much better. Things can get a little silly with me sometimes, but your time is suppose to be spent well.
My office uniform is generally jeans and a button down with casual shoes. But I really love my off hours uniform of jeans, t-shirt and flip flops. Much more comfortable, in my opinion. Speaking of opinions, I have strong opinions on some subjects, but really enjoy listening to othersвЂ™ opinions too., my mind can grow and learn from those opinions and life experiences.
As for my ideal match, I donвЂ™t believe I know the answer to that. It takes two to make a match. And no one is perfect 100% of the time. The only thing I can truly say is I cannot accept lies. IвЂ™ve been through enough of them. So, if you are honest, loving and caring with a lust for life, then you and I could be an ideal matchвЂ¦Or not. But no matter what, you wonвЂ™t get lies, only opinions, from me. I'm old fashion , it's a southern thing.
Meet people from United States. This is what I want.....
Dig if you will, the picture
Of you and I engaged in a kiss
The sweat of your body covers me
Can you my darling, can you picture this?
Dream if you can a courtyard
An ocean of violets in bloom
Animals strike curious poses
They feel the heat, the heat between me and you......
Who am I?...... Describe myself? K!.....I would describe myself as stable in my career and goal-oriented. I teach at a college. I am a loving father. I enjoy making people laugh. I am intelligent and can carry on meaningful conversations. I care about other people's feelings. . . When I'm with someone special, I like being spontaneous, adventurous, romantic, surprising them with little gestures, sensual, playful, and basically having that type of fun you see two people who just met in the movies having! Someone to laugh with, hang out with, be spontaneous with, and have fun with! I'm looking for someone who has similar qualities and desires someone who they can connect with . . . I feel there has to be a mutual physical attraction for there to be good chemistry between two people. So taking care of yourself is important, as well as being sensual and affectionate . . . Having some similar interests helps a lot. Some things I enjoy are fine dining, walking at the beach at night, going dancing, watching movies including foreign films, traveling, reading a good book, going on day trips to local attractions, having romantic nights at home, cuddling, and basically having a blast together. . .
Btw...I donвЂ™t have a clue what most guys like because I am not most guys!!!!
Date someone special from United States. Random thoughts...
When I get something out of a vending machine (rare) I almost always leave the change because I know how excited people get when they think they "won" some extra money back.
I recycle, shop with cloth bags, have a membership with The Center for Biological Diversity, and buy organic food when I have the opportunity. Yet, I drive a truck. Seriously, figure me out...
I sing when I drive. I sound gooood.
I believe the single most important quality in the people you let get close to you is loyalty. If you were to ask my close friends what is the best quality about me, its loyalty.
Personality-wise, I'm a rather complex cross of select attributes from Red Forman, Bear Grylls, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Beaker (the Muppet) and about a dozen or so others that you'll just have to figure out along the way.
I believe I can learn a lot about you by looking into your eyes.
I just bought a running stroller (used, recycle!). No, I don't have any curtain climbers but rather I want a way to fetch groceries via foot power (see my training goal below). I can hear it now..."Awww, that's such a cute...um, sir, that's a watermelon in there." Yes, I'm very proud.
I see most things in life as very black and white. When it comes time to pick sides, there is rarely any doubt about which side I'll be on. If I had lived in the Old West, I would have carried a badge and a Colt Peacemaker. Maybe not the badge. Maybe two Colts.
If we get to the point that we know each other well, I want you to bring crackers to bed and eat them. This will be the famous Would-I-Kick-You-Out-of-Bed-for-Eating-Crackers Test, and is very important.
I'm looking for that feeling like I've known you before. A feeling like "home." I've felt it before and I won't settle for less ever again.
I don't like Vegas, Disneyland, McDonalds, Wal-Mart, Starbucks, hominy, Adam Sandler, Rush Limbaugh, Judge Judy, cruises, people who talk during the National Anthem, golf, video games (however, I rock at strip Pong) reality TV (except The Amazing Race, which I would WIN if I ever got on). I don't wear flip-flops, baseball caps backwards, Elton John sunglasses, t-shirts with the arms cut out, or say phrases that end with the word "on" (like "let's get our grub on").
I like Telluride, Southwest Airlines, spicy V-8, cheese, muscle soreness, the smell of decaying leaves, furry critters, stars, wind through aspens, music with soul, natural peanut butter, Betty White, Jackson Hole, imagination, scars, basil pesto, pretty much anything that follows "hey y'all watch this", Lonesome Dove (the movie), Whac-A-Mole, underwear just out of the dryer, darkdark chocolate, Q-tips, wanderlust, gypsy souls, tailgates, muscadine wine, maps, good back rubs, and a hint of perfume that makes me want to get closer and find the exact location of application.
I don't have good rhythm, but I'll never admit it or give up pretending I do.
Some oddities: I don't float. I never get the hiccups. I had six wisdom teeth (now in a jar!). Once upon a time, I would eat an entire apple pie for breakfast. The only thing I collect: stamps in my National Parks Passport. I believe in magic, karma, ghosts, and aliens. Sasquatch is a little iffy. I'm a newly minted vegetarian. Mmm, soy. I am training for a 50-mile ultra-marathon. I never use umbrellas. My eyes sometimes change colors. I don't own a TV.
I'm not the least bit afraid of growing old or dying, but I'd rather not do either just yet.
I don't believe in "all things in moderation." I do believe in balance. Sometimes.
FYI, I do not respond to winks.
If you have made it this far, that's a good sign. I'm not looking for my mirror image, you can hate some of my "likes" and love some of my "dislikes." Mostly, I want you to be deep, have character, be active and fit, have a sense of adventure
Meet a man from United States. I am an easy going guy that just likes to have fun. I have lived in Birmingham for 8 years. I enjoy travel, beach, hanging out with friends and family.
I am looking for a woman that is fun, ambitious, honest, loving and all the other things we all look for in a life partner, but I want her to capture my attention and I want to capture hers! I want someone that will always keep my best interest at heart, because I would do exactly the same!
Date men and women from United States. I would like to spend quality time watching movies and talking to someone special hoping this would turn into something special. I am very passionate about football and would love to spend my Saturdays and Sundays with that special person towatch them with me
Meet single man from United States. Who am I?
I am a Southern Christian gentleman, Alabama farm born and raised, then moved to the city after High School. I don't dip or mud ride, but I do say yes ma'am and yes sir and I have manners. Been known to fish though. I live with a few live animals. Family is important to me and I consider my closest friends to be family.
I've been told I'm smart and pretty quick-witted and that I should have been a comedian, a lawyer or a comedic lawyer (is that a job?). I don't know about all that but I do enjoy making people laugh and having a good time. I'm easy going and quick with a smile. I am a MAN, yes a gentle-man but a man and if you are looking for a wuss who can't make a decision, I'm not your guy.
I enjoy reading. Lately some entrepreneurial books also some thrillers. My life is not a perpetual orbit of my couch, but if my favorite shows are on I will watch some TV. I enjoy watching movies. I have a Wii that I play with my kids.
I like going to the beach (build a great sand castle) and to the mountains (ski like a fool). I enjoy exploring, going to new places, trying new restaurants and foods. Recently, I've become quite a sushi enthusiast, who knew it was so good?
I enjoy listening to classic rock as well a lot of other current music that's not too rap, and I like some country. My kids are often surprised/embarrassed when I know/sing the lyrics to the songs they like.
I cook a bit, and am teaching myself more. My kids tell me I can cook a mean breakfast, I agree. I can even make you fried eggs if you get tired of scrambled. And who doesn't?
Who I am looking for?
In 3 words, a lady, a partner, a love.
I'm not obsessed with looks, but attraction is either there or it isn't. In my experience, external beauty is sometimes utterly negated by inner ugliness. To put it the way my Mamaw did, "pretty is as pretty does".
