Combat vet, motorcycle drag racing, dirtbike rider, firearms instructor, gov "stuff", whiskery educator - a bit of a connoisseur of libations, bar owner (former), filled a passport, I fix things-the guy friends call to fix things, ....... blaaaaa, here's what I think- I have been privileged to be exposed to many things and have learned enough to know that there is so much more to learn. I have been humbled. I value time sharing humor and with good people regardless of external appearance or creed because I have found that everyone has something fascinating to share if you let them know you want to hear it. As much as I enjoy deep intellectual conversation, I will interject with a joke (probably dirty) to keep things lighthearted if an audience is present but will inquire in private if they need to talk further about something. I play an asshole in a group and online (facebook), but my friends know it's just for fun and that I secretly give a fuck. My humor is either playing with the "that's just wrong" side of the accepted social narrative or is self demeaning- only to poke at another ego in obvious jest- never hurtful. I have nothing to prove to myself or anyone else by bringing others down. ...........
humm? I don't think I did this right?
Hey, I tried right? Lol.
Enjoy the fluff:)

Sometimes Planning Things and Sometimes Not Planning At All
I consider myself a pretty outgoing person and fun to be around. I like to make jokes and be goofy, so a sense of humor is a must.
Not inclined to hang out in a club or very loud environment. Give me a place that we can round table friends throwing jokes and one liners or debating issues of the day maybe expressing our deepest convictions to find out how we came to those opinions. Give me time with friends, good wine, thoughtful conversation, and mutual respect. Let us learn each other with a smile.
I work for a great company out of DC, I am the only one of "me" in Georgia. I work mostly from home and drive to the mil bases in the area when I am needed. I do travel some to DC, Baltimore, but not for any long stays and not often. Former Army, Lived in Germany, traveled Europe, I get to go back for visits time to time.
I appreciate quality over quantity. I enjoy a little whiskey when a chill is in the air. Rarely do I drink to the point of getting more than a mild buzz. If I get together with friends for a night out (with a dd) then yes, but I do not get to the point that the ground starts to give way. Formerly Owning a bar put an end to the desire of getting sloshed. I much rather be with friends talking and joking while enjoying our libations.
I think the dem's can stay out of my wallet, and the Repub's can stay out of my bedroom. I am for personal responsibility and accountability.
My basic philosophy is "Do whatever you want with your life but don't expect me to pay for it." I usually agree with my liberal friends on social freedom issues and a bit to the right of conservatives on economic issues. While I am firm in my own personal political beliefs, I am not close-minded and enjoy having intelligent conversations with people from all points on the political spectrum.
So what am I looking for?
-One who challenges me and with whom I have a strong emotional, intellectual and physical connection.
-She knows what she wants and not be afraid to pursue it.
-She finds honesty and integrity in relationships (and in general) important.
-An independent who wants someone to share her life with.
-She's aware of the world around her and has an adventurous spirit.
-She's active and she can adapt to any situation - from dressing up for an evening out to putting on a hoodie and sitting around a fire pit.
-Has her own opinions, ideas, and hobbies and can express herself well with intelligence, confidence, and humor yet also one that will play hard, throw the joke back in somebody's face, and not afraid to get a little dirty......(or dirty minded).
Not looking for a "party girl" (a past phase is cool) or a rebound. Looking for the proverbial fruit to be a little higher on the tree.
