Raised by one of the original liberated women and a career military man. I do best with the independent type rather than a walking romance novel or clinging vine. I'm well-mannered, considerate and polite, but I speak my mind and stand my ground. I respect and expect self-sufficiency and personal responsibility, and definitely believe in all things going both ways. I never expect more of anyone than I do of myself, and you'll get what you give. I probably sound like a hard case, but I'm not. All the gals I've ever worked with think I'm a pretty nice guy. I'm very handy and used to say that I could fix anything but a broken heart. The gals quite often replied, "I'm pretty sure you could do that, too!"
If you're very religious, I'm probably not your type. I answered Christianity because 'Other' seems to send the wrong message. I am a Deist and serious about it. Curious? Look it up in Wikipedia. We play well with others, but don't ask us to join anyone's prayer club. I was a very dedicated Boy Scout, am an Eagle Scout and as a result, those are my moral and ethical roots.
My high school yearbook says, "Calm, likeable and ever-willing to do his part." That pretty much covers it. Kinda like a good paint job. Not too exciting, but pleasant to look at, durable and easy to get along with!
