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

Don't Plan Your Wedding Before You've Gone On a Second Date
When it comes to dating, don't allow yourself to focus on the "what ifs." Simply enjoy what is happening right now. Even if marriage is in your cards, remember, the first date always comes before the wedding.
Pace Your Dates
Sometimes the most accurate truth can be found hidden within a cliché. In this case, it's this one: Life can only be lived one day at a time. The same goes for romantic relationships. With each date you share, there will be growth. If there isn't, that may be your cue to cut your losses early. Either way, you're making progress.
Embrace Your Freedom
Men, in most cases, will tend to embrace the freedom that being single brings far more enthusiastically than women. We won't get into the why right now, but I do urge you to remember that sometimes it's OK to take a page out of a man's playbook. You're in a privileged position to make the choices that you truly desire. Be selective, and know that not every man deserves your attention.
Change Your Perspective
I have heard countless people bemoan the fact that they are tired of dating as if that's a curse. The truth is, at this stage the possibilities are limitless. But they won't be for you unless you think so too. Try changing the way you view the dating experience. Even if a particular situation doesn't ultimately lead to where you would have wanted it to go, it is rarely a waste of time getting to know another human being on a deeper level. You feel me?
Separate Attraction from Interest
It's important to learn how to cultivate relationships without the promise of getting anything from them. You will end up better for it in almost all cases. Concentrate on being a friend before becoming a lover and find out whether you're attracted to his mind, body or both.
Your Terms, Your Time
Have it your way. Spend time with who you want to, when you want to. It's really that simple. Don't allow the expectations of others to put pressure on you. There's no reward in trying to "fix" what isn't yours. Invest yourself only in the man that has illustrated he'll yield you the greatest return.
Consider Multiple Applicants
Companies attempting to fill a vacancy will interview several candidates over a course of time. This helps them ensure that they pick the right person. Don't live like you're married until you have a husband. If you're single and dating, then date - preferably more than one guy a time. Allowing yourself various options helps you to find the man who is exactly right fit for you and not waste too much time with those who aren't.
Start Random Conversations
Before you mean mug me, hear me out! Sometimes people are too closed in and they need to be more forward. That doesn't mean you have to go around asking men out on dates. (Not that there's anything wrong with that.) But, start random conversations with men you'd like to get to know a little better. You never know where it may lead - a date or a business opportunity even. Either way you win because you increase your chances of finding someone you click with. Just try it!
