I guess I would describe myself as a bit "traditional" in my values with a pretty conservative view of the world and politics. I was raised in a military family by a Father that flew jets in Viet Nam and by a Mother who insisted on raising us to have respect for the men and women that have risked everything and put their lives on the line for our country. In my mind, Patriotism is not an option - it is a way of life!!
I was also raised to respect women and truly believe that chivalry should not be a lost act! I believe in opening doors for women, allowing them the last seat on the bus and helping them with their overhead luggage on planes! LOL Overall I was taught to have women walk next to me - NEVER behind me!! If you do not value these types of traits then we would most likely not be a good match!!
I relocated to St. Pete in April of this year from the Dallas/Fort Worth area where I was raised and absolutely love it here! Not only is there ALWAYS something fun to do or places to visit but the aesthetics of the area are so appealing!! I will admit though that I am still getting used to the "snow birds" and their driving skills - or lack thereof!! LOL
I work as a clinical research scientist in the field of ophthalmology and absolutely love my job!! It has provided me with not only a nice living but has allowed me to help people and their vision through my research. Most of my research has been spent in the intraocular lens (replacing cataracts) arena and I love feeling like I have made an impact in the lives of the elderly.
By the way ladies - I do have body ink - no it is nothing disgusting and are all easily hidden. I have three and all of them have a very special meaning to me and pertain to certain things that have occurred in my life. If you do not like tats or think they are morally or ethically wrong - I am definitely not the guy for you!!!!
I enjoy all types of live music venues and love any type of activities associated with the water! I also enjoy traveling around my new environment and seeing new places and experiencing new things. I like most types of food and honestly think I could eat sushi for every meal of every day!! LOL I am an extremely passionate person about life and love to laugh and have fun!! I am looking for only ONE quality woman to spend quality time with and help me explore my new surroundings! So if I haven't bored you to death by reading my profile - drop me a note - you never know where that might go!!
