Male seeking Female,
More About MeIf you can't tell by now, I'm not a "conventional" or repetitious type. Not a high strung or type "A" sort of guy. Can't be pigeonholed in any certain category except maybe, "original, enjoyable, optimistic, hopeless romantic w/a great sense of humor", and pretty humble...I like to please, so...you could have your way more often than not, especially if we share essential values and truly care for eachother. What makes me special is that I am special, and so are you. At least I hope you know it, what I would like very much is to be finding "special" about a future and a life with my "someone special". I can share alot more in person or in time than I could ever write here, so...I don't have pretenses - I'm not going to say everything that I want or must have here. What I will say is that a couple who develops into people who truly accept, love, forgive and try to "out-give" each other spontaneously, well...there's a joy and a quality of life out there to have and to share that I have only briefly ever experienced. Want to walk and talk? Share the warmth of someone who wants to be kind AND still be passionate? Then we lose or risk nothing in getting acquainted. Here's hoping you find the best for you, at this time in your life. May God Bless your ways and your path along the way; with some wonder, some joy and laughter, (life's best medicine) and enough of the right kind of friendships to keep you safe to the journey's end. All the best to you who read this... Me? I wish I could do more right now. I'll be patient enough to see what life brings. I'm not hard to please and can appreciate good company. Easy to talk to, good listener - always learning myself, along the way. You and me...coffee together sometime? Hot chocolate, campfire, or nice restaurant? Will be in touch for you if I can be - to get acquainted. Godspeed dear lady - wherever you are!
Hobbies / Interests / ActivitiesHiking, biking, camping, fishing, cooking and fixing things. Home repairs - flooring, home-improvement, etc. I also spend time working with other veterans in transitional-housing and group social work. Am currently on location at the Frazee Community
Political Affiliationwould u beleive I am a conservative-republican? But I do like to appreciate other peoples affiliations, as best I can.
Who I Would Like to MeetCompatibility. Healthy attraction to eachother. Not self-seeking. You are a woman who knows and likes herself, is able to share thoughts and feelings. You are able to tell me what is most important to you and what you need. You can laugh with me, you can tell me what you like and don't like. You are not a bitter or angry person, and you have the ability to trust, to love and be loved, and the ability to forgive when needed. That is alot. If you are a reasonably attractive lady who takes care of herself and have the qualities that I mentioned...I would sure like to meet you!! I really would.
Favorite MusicGosh, I guess you'd say - or you would say; I like alot of differant music at differant times. I do like oldies, ya know 50's and 60's but not all the time. I like southern gospel on Sunday mornins' if that tells you anything. I like
Favorite TV ShowsI like History Channel, Fox News & sports (baseball), I watch TBN, INSP and even 700 club at times for a Christian view of world and local events. I could easily live without television, especially with a fine lady to spend my time wit
Favorite MoviesReal...true to life or funny.
Favorite Books"Mastering the Trade", a financial book about FOREX currency trading, a "Getting Started" book about interactive journaling, a "Bus Book" for OMNITRANS local routes and transfer-connections, a "Mountain Biking" trail boo
Others NoticeThat I am a caring person with a sense of humor. A person who likes affection, both verbal and non-verbal. Likeable guy, pretty healthy, nice looking man who can be quiet, humble, grateful, and teachable. Can be funny...wet your pants funny at times...well? I guess now the first thing to notice is that I need to edit my photos a little better. I was not at my best when these were taken 4 yrs. ago - had been thru alot of life changes.
Skills/TalentsListening, feeling, caring about others needs. The ability to both give and receive love. Professional Driver, caregiver. Good cook, good company - fun to be with in good times and bad. I have social skills that were largely undeveloped. I can cheer people - and humor is always essential. I fix things...home improvement, etc. I wash, I clean. Good with animals (am actually gifted with animals and people) even though the animals are sometimes alot easier...lol. There's more skills, talent, and ability, but there is a start, ok?
Favorite FoodHard to pick just one! I like salads, I like Meat, pasta, and mexican food. Chips, salsa, etc. I make my own desserts with or without ice-cream...what would YOU like?
Subjects You Think AboutMaking LOVE and being in love...the joy of it!! You know that song? "Ain't that a shame"... well...just being honest here - why not? Ok...I also often think about art, nature, the mountains, a warm night by the fireplace. Laughter and contentment, and M-A-Y-B-E your company. I've got (romantic) bad, don't I.
Friday or Saturday Nights ILately just being close to home and relaxing, (its still winter-time). I go out but not like the drinking and dancing type. Would like to be found sharing special time with a nice lady, who enjoy's being with me....so?
Life GoalsStarting with me...I would truly like to become all that I could possibly be - as a person, as a man, as a lover and a friend. Really. No false pretense. Real deal. I have faced my shortcomings and accepted myself. I know what I like, what I need, and hope to - and believe I will have. There is alot on this one subject here, so...in person on this one okay? I can tell you this; about 7 yrs. ago I had alot and lost alot. But it ain't over till' it's over, and its not over - not at all! I tell people that no matter what your age, no matter what you have done or has been done to you...I am a relentless optimist, (with a normal amount of down times that don't last long). Anyway - this I believe (and I know)....the very best years of your life can still be ahead of you, and they are!! We just need to discover that. It's true. Do you agree?
SecretVery big heart - alot to offer that money cannot buy.
