Single dad for 15 years - now with 4 healthy, happy adult kids - two UT grads, a culinary school grad who is now a full-time teacher AND full-time student, and a budding Aggie psychologist.. I have been 100% devoted to my kids and my business for the past 17 years. After 2 years I am finally (I think) adjusted to my new life as an empty nester and beginning to start doing things for myself again.
I'm still a workaholic. Chances are I go to bed hours after you and wake up well before you. But I make up for it by napping anytime I am forced to sit on a couch or temple pew (just kick me when its time to stand). I run a successful business serving people and organizations throughout our city and am proud of our relationships, especially with those organizations I have been able to help in the areas of education, theater and arts, and community service. I'm an outdoor person by nature, but also don't mind attending evening events though I currently do both less than I'd like to.
I am very much family oriented - spending time with my kids and their significant others several times a week or whenever the opportunity is there. The person I date will be welcomed into that mix just the way I have welcomed those my kids date into our family. I am pretty much unfiltered in sharing my opinions, but at least know how to filter myself from saying tactless things that are hurtful of others. I have a beard and ponytail so if that turns you off steer clear. (though I'd happily cut my ponytail if I wouldn't then have to put some kind of crap into my thinning hair to keep it in place).
I'm much younger than my physical age and am looking for the same. Energetic and young-at-heart (the energetic is referring to you, not me).
