Wow Where do I start?.. Well for my likes, Motorcycles, Bowling (Yeah, I roll 300's) and Pool are my sports. I am a father of 2 girls, who are completely the reason why I breathe.. My girls have inspired me to be the best in life at all things, not from the moment they were born, but from the moment they were conceived. Being a dad is the quintessential favorite part of my life. I also have a fascination with rescue and law enforcement. I was hired as a full-time fire rescuer the same week I was hired as an on call (not even part-time) radio personality. It’s obvious that I chose radio, and it indeed has been good to me, more so than I am to it. Radio broadcasting has always been my passion and was ultimately birthed into me by my late father who worked in radio for almost 50 years. So I guess you can say I got it honestly. I can truly say that I am blessed beyond measure to have such a great career, which allows me to experience so much the average person will probably never do or see. I am truly grateful to God for this dream now reality lifestyle that I am blessed to have...To Him be The Glory...The Father, Teacher & Mentor

Here are 9 ways to tell that the honeymoon is over in your relationship -- via Madamenoire.com.
1. No Romance
You used to have date nights, picnics in the park and he'd send you roses just because. Now, you'd be lucky if he remembers your birthday. For some, romance is a part of the courting stage of a relationship, so once he gets you (or you get him), you both stop doing the things that won your hearts in the first place. If you realize that there are no more candlelit dinners or hand-written notes, do something about it. Don't wait for him to initiate, because he may not even be aware that you miss these things since he has your love already. So send him flowers at the office one day (okay, maybe be careful with that one if you know it'll embarrass him more than anything) or leave a note where he can find it reminding him of all the reasons you love and appreciate him. He may return in kind and that may be all that's needed to get his romantic juices flowing again.
2. Sex Dwindles
When you first started dating, you couldn't keep your hands off of each other, and sex was daily, maybe several times a day. Now you can't remember the last time you two had a hot, back scratching night between the sheets...and you miss the passion that would leave you both sleepless but content the next morning. If you aren't the type to initiate sex, now may be the time to try it. Yes, you both may be tired from work, or stressed from the day-to-day responsibilities of life, but intimacy should be a priority if you want to stay connected - both emotionally and physically. Pencil it in if you have to, but make the time so that he knows you still desire him. If he's the one who has lost interest, there may be something deeper going on. If you don't suspect infidelity, have him checked out by a doctor to make sure everything is functioning properly or he isn't suffering from depression. Either way, figure it out and get busy.
3. You Feel Less Emotionally Connected
If you still have sex frequently, but still feel emotionally disconnected, it may be time to re-evaluate your relationship. If you find that you'd rather retreat than reconnect, or you have no reaction when your partner expresses him or herself, you've probably already checked out. But if you want that connection back, seek the help of a counselor or spiritual adviser to help guide you back.
4. You Spend Less Time Together
In the beginning, you were joined at the hip. Your friends even would get a little annoyed because you became MIA once your new boo came on the scene. Now you find that you're out more with your girls or your guys and you both are living totally separate social lives. While having outside friends and interests is completely healthy, if you'd rather be in the club with your homies as if you're single, then you might want to stay home and figure out what's going on. Some men and women simply take their partners for granted, knowing they're at home waiting for them and that could be a breeding ground for resentment. Once resentment sets in, it's hard to recover and the relationship may be in jeopardy. Make time for each other, even if you live together, so no one feels lonely or left out. Be each other's best friend first.
5. Little Things Irritate You
His snoring was so cute when you first started dating; now you want to push him out of the bed and suffocate him with a pillow. Okay, that may be a little extreme, but if you find that things that were once endearing to you now work your last nerve, chances are the rose colored glasses have come off and you see nothing but his socks laying around the house. It happens, but realize that he probably sees some things about you too that annoy him to no end too. Rather than get upset over the slightest thing, try to see where your disdain is really coming from. Are you actually angry with him about something else other than that dish he left in the sink? Be honest about what's really bothering you. If you can't think of anything, and he or she is a good person who you truly love deeply, then let all of that other stuff go. But if his breathing upsets you THAT much, you're probably with the wrong guy.
6. You Argue More
Nothing signals the end of the honeymoon phase like excessive arguing. Sure, all couples argue - but if you find that you're ALWAYS arguing, over nothing, then it's time to take a step back and find out what you both are so mad about. Sometimes arguments are just a sign of growing pains and getting to know each other. Other times, it's a sign that you're not as compatible as you think you are. Just because you love each other doesn't mean you should be together, especially if you can't see eye to eye on critical matters. If you're arguing over silly things, then pick your battles and try to have respectful debates over things that truly matter in your relationship. However, if every subject feels like a war to you, then it may be time to part ways.
7. You Let Yourself Go
For some, this may be about feeling comfortable in your relationship, but letting yourself go can also send a message to your partner that you don't care anymore. If he starts wearing the boxers with the holes in them or you don't match your bra and panties like you used to, chances are you both don't feel like you have to try as hard because you've gotten each other already. There is nothing wrong with feeling like you can be yourself with your partner - it's a great feeling knowing he loves you for you. But that doesn't mean you should stop working out or swiping on some lipstick once in a while. For his part, your mans should still shave and not be a sloppy mess with a beer gut (unless you met him like that and it turns you on). If you find that you've gotten a little too comfortable, take a trip to Victoria's Secret and switch out your granny undies for the lacy numbers you used to rock for him when you first started kicking it. Always try to be the best you can be for each other.
8. Life Becomes Routine
If you've moved in together or have gotten married, you probably share a mortgage, the bills and maybe children - and life quickly seems to take over where romance and spontaneity left off. It's not easy to escape for a long weekend when you have to find a sitter and money may be tight when you want to vacation in Jamaica. Don't allow yourself to get in a rut, so make a plan that involves one adult night where there are no kids and no outside interruptions. Focus solely on each other, whether it simply means going for a walk or a long drive, to the movies or just lying in bed making love or eating ice cream. Keeping the spark alive doesn't have to cost a fortune, and while children are a priority, they shouldn't blind you to your partner.
9. Your Relationship Feels Like "Work"
Your relationship should feel like work but in a GOOD way. Relationships ARE hard work, but they shouldn't feel fake, forced or like a chore. Keeping your relationship healthy means that you make your relationship a priority that you put work into every single day, just like you would for a career or any other passion that brings you fulfillment. Making your partner a priority means being aware of his or her feelings and developing communication skills that keep you connected. It takes effort and patience, but like anything worth having, the hard work will pay off. The reward will be a relationship that may be out of honeymoon phase, but lasts a lifetime.
