I am a gentleman first. I am a honest level headed guy. I have a
good education and a good job. I like to work out, hang out with
friends, and I am always in situations to meet new people.
I love music of all kinds. I love dancing of all kinds. I read
mostly non-fiction. When I do read fiction it is typically love
stories (not "romance" novels) and or stories around
I love Jazz, R&B, the blues, songs and standards and almost all
current music. What is more I love to see it Live!
I am a well rounded person. I have lived a lot of life and I don't
plan to stop. That said, there is not enough space here for nearly
a percentage of my story. Sometimes I wonder if it would fit in one
book. I am a story teller so, probably not. I have a diversity of
interest-likes and dislikes. If there is something you don't see or
want to know just ask me. If you don't ask the answer will always
What I’m doing with my life
Actively seeking fulfillment… I have a good job but I have been
recently looking to make a move to something that may offer better
opportunity for growth. Other than work- I am in the gym or hanging
with friends. I keep a pretty active social life. I would love to
include someone special in it and or have someone special to relax
and spend time with.
I’m really good at
analyzing, logic, deductive reasoning, creative thinking and
appreciating the finer things of life…
And romance… I am really good at romance- I don't quite know how to
explain that except to say I know how to make a lady feel
special-like she is the only woman in the world.
The first things people usually notice about me
Honestly, I am not sure I've ever had anyone mention it to me
before…but if I had to say, it would be my stature for my height…I
give great big bear hugs. I dress well.
I am a retired US Marine so, I imagine it is possible that I may
come off as a little intimidating.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The last two books I completed were The Aleph by Paulo Coelho and
THe History of Sexuality Vol. 1 by Michel Foucault. Oh and
Kerouac's Dharma Bums was in the mix too. Movie: I have to say The
Artist has to be one of my favorites- modern silent films- GENIUS!
I'm also a Batman and Bond kind of guy. Music: take me back all the
way to the 30s big band, Sinatra and Martin in the 40s-50s, Led
Zeppelin in the 70s, Eric Clapton from the 70s to current, Pearl
Jam and Ani Difranco from the 90s to R&B/Hip-Hop at the
beginning of the 21st century to present day the Civil wars, Ray Le
Montagne and Mumford & Sons, not to mention some Portishead,
Bjork and Massive Attack… I'll take it all and sometimes in the
same day! I will note there are tons and I do mean tons of artist I
did not mention here. So if yoou don't see it; it doesn't mean its
not there. Food: The rule goes like this: I'll eat anything that
doesn't kill me-anything!
I am also an opera fan. I generally make the Dallas opera at least
twice a season but I have had season tickets in the past.
I would have to say Hockey and Baseball are my favorite sports and
my favorite sports to watch live with one exception MMA fighting.
I've never seen boxing live. I imagine that would be pretty
The six things I could never do without
Human Contact- Family & Friends
Art-creative expression- either my own or someone else's
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think the top of this list is compassion- not just fluffy "I feel
your pain compassion" but I wonder what fires a person has walked
in that they walk through life scared and scarred and how can I
respond to them in a love that they may not know. Second is my own
fulfillment. And perhaps third but not the least of these and
perhaps all encompassing- the Realm of God- this includes lots of
physics and talks of string theory.
Oh and why with all the women's liberation movements- why women
still don't make the first move? Don't hesitate to message me. For
me it indicates that you have a shared interest and further that I
am not contacting you with ill intent. I am not here for a booty
call or some kind of friends with benefits. But instead to meet
real women that are open to life and relationship and what those
have to offer two mutually respecting people.
On a typical Friday night I am
It varies. Sometimes reading, watching tv, hanging with friends,
listening to live music, out to a show or movie…the list goes on.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a soft spot.
You should message me if
To paraphrase Henry Rollins… Give me a woman that can sit me down,
shut me up and tell me ten things I don't already know, make me
laugh, turn me on and I'll follow you to the end.
You are looking for a great guy, that has his life together, and
you are looking to be complimented and compliment someone else's
life. And if anything I've written peeks your interest and you want
to make a good friend.
I am going to expound on this a bit… I am a grown man. I know how
to cook and clean for myself and I pay my own bills. I do not need
someone to tell me what to wear or what to eat and/or how to live
my life. So, please don't message me if you need to control or
dictate someone else's life. As well please don't contact me if you
are looking for an immature punk. I don't play video games for
hours on end. I do not eat fast food and rarely junk food. I take
care of myself and appreciate someone that does the same.
All that said, if you are just looking for a good friend- I hear
I'm pretty good at it. :-)
