Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well traveled but Minnesota born and raised. A smart career move
brought me to So-Cal 6 years ago. Oh by the way any blue text in my
profile is a link.
I'm not in the entertainment industry so this profile is free of
flakiness and airbrushed professional headshots.
I'm annoyed by how many I have met from here were using
professional photos from 5 yrs and 50lb ago. So in keeping with my
"this is me so f-ing deal with it" attitude... all my photos are
recent typical real day in my life camera phone shots.
No shirtless photos but some weeks I just get my diet and workouts
perfect others not so much... So lately I go from sporting a
defined 6 pack to one just showing..
Dates say my blend of MN charm and chivalry is refreshing change
from how many others get too forward
girls with every demand but nothing to offer are a dime a
With a lot going for me and to offer I'll never settle for getting
back less than the best in return.
It's easy to ignore girls and hold out for a real woman..
Especially when I'm enjoying a kickass life even without someone in
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a successful career in aerospace and I was also serving one
weekend a month in a part time National Guard Aviation unit until I
got out in December 2014.
My start in the military was before 9-11 and since then I've been
everywhere from a still smoking WTC @9-11
. to Iraq and Afghanistan.
Proud of my service but happy its behind me.
I spend free time on outdoor adventure, fitness, my Horses
, my pup ฅʕ••ʔฅ
Like most guys I like things like my sportscar
diesel crew cab truck and my motorcycles.
But that's hardly unique and not
my priority anyway.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm good at most things ending in 'manship like horsemanship,
marksmanship and workmanship.
OK.. Wow.. After a 49 year old literally asked to "ride the
manship" I really need to rewrite this..
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Someone once thought I was the stunt rider in Yes Man
not my naked butt weaving through traffic..

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Of course my family and friends come first......
1. A Career that I love
2. Paying it forward.
3. Outdoors fun Fishing, hiking etc
4. Like any guy my vehicles.
5. A garage full of tools
6. My animals. Horses and a Rhodesian Ridgeback dog
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I'll drive anywhere from Napa to Temecula for wine or all the way
to Ventura or San Diego just to catch fish....so when I have
thought highly enough of a date I've met them everywhere from Santa
Monica to San Juan Capistrano.
Of course there was that year all the way in Iraq and then just
short of a year in Afghanistan before I was wounded and flown home
for surgery. That's how to be a man. If I'll do that for love of
country what do you think I'd do for the love of a woman?
Many between 10 and 30 miles away email that I'm their dream man
but its just too far away.
Apparently even when they find that rare combination of no kids, no
drama and no bullshit in a fit package earning 100k and standing
over 6ft tall... it's just not going to work if I'm not there in a
half hour or less like she ordered dominoes pizza. My opinion is
that's being a whiny girl not a woman.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Going out with friends. It is always a nice break from work or the
warped egos and distorted aspirations found in online dating.
My Friday nights are not typical. If yours are I can fix that.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
After a lot of what the hell town is your ranch in? It says Santa
Clarita now since it's the nearest place people know.
I work in the antelope Valley. After work its just 15 traffic free
minutes until I hear welcome home whinnys at my house. It's near
horse trails with acres and facilities for my two horses.
So shame the 661 all you want when you're still parked on the 405
while I'm already in my hot tub done with both work and a horseback
I don't think The Women of LA
are all the same. So stop assuming a
veteran must be a staunch conservative, have PTSD or be broke. In
my case none of the above.
In early 2013 playing "dodge rocket" in Afghanistan led to getting
flown stateside for surgery. I've been back to 100% and my civilian
life/career for over a year now. In that year I have dated a lot
but prefer to be in a great relationship which is hard to find in
