My self-summary
First and foremost, I am in a SERIOUS, COMMITTED, MONOGAMOUS relationship. I'm never on OkCupid, because I'm not looking, not interested, and not available. However, if you are some kind of masochist and want to read about someone who is completely unattainable, go for it. Just don't think that stalking my profile or sending me love letters/poetry/miscellaneous propositions is going to get you anywhere.

I am not jaded or cynical, and fall in love with simple things that make me smile for not always simple reasons. I like to think that I cultivate an attitude of child-like wonder, but a good friend referred to this quality as "innocence," and I guess that works in a pinch.

If someone asks me where a thing is, and I do not immediately know the answer, I will claim to have eaten it. This answer applies equally to keys, best friends, articles of clothing, cars, and furniture. I do a lot of strange things to entertain myself and those around me, and because I'm generally a smart ass.

I can be rather arrogant and self-centered, which is a serious problem when I let it get out of hand. Working on that, but aren't we all works in progress?

Since joining the Navy I've discovered a previously untapped dislike of people who can't follow basic instructions and a surprising capacity for obeying whatever rules I recognize. It has also come to my attention that I am wholly incapable of coping with whining from adults who ought to know better.

I am enthusiastic, sincere, and curious
What I’m doing with my life
I'm in the Navy. I recently re-enlisted for another 6 years, which'll bring me to 10. How long I'll stay in remains to be seen, but being a Sailor suits me for the time being.

I'm on deployment.

I'm giving serious thought to giving triathlons a try. Nothing crazy, like an Ironman, but a Sprint perhaps. I need to work on my running, and the ability to complete the run will likely be the deciding factor.

I'm trying to implement the Paleo diet as a lifestyle change, not just for weight loss. I've got the books, so I can educate myself, and I've got an idea of what I'm supposed to avoid. It isn't realistic to stick to it while the ship is underway, but at least in port I try not to cheat. I'm hoping this will help me be a healthier person overall, not just a thinner person.
I’m really good at
Singing, wasting time online, talking about nothing of much importance for hours on end, and making people wonder what I'm thinking. I also bake a heckuva cheesecake and can do specialty flavors, and have been told that I'm an excellent dancer. I give a decent back rub, too. It's sad how few of those are saleable skills, isn't it?

Oh, once upon a time I was a competitive martial artist. I add this only because, having spent 11 years studying various styles, I ended up a very disciplined person. It is also the major reason why I don't appreciate condescension. And it means I will almost never need someone to come save me.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm short and curvy. If they're especially observant, that I'm confident. I've noticed that if you carry yourself like you're ten feet tall, people will believe it. Despite my actual height, people commonly think I'm about four inches taller.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite books: Heinlein's Stranger in a Strange Land (and many others), Neal Stephenson's Snow Crash (and pretty much everything else he ever wrote), Dean Koontz's Odd Thomas series... Lots of others. I like thought-provoking, well-written fiction. I'll read almost anything, but prefer science fiction.

Favorite movies: I don't get out much... all time favorite movie has got to be the Princess Bride, with the Last Unicorn coming in somewhere in the top five. I'm generally a fan of action movies and dark comedy. Dumb comedy, stoner comedy, and similar don't amuse me, and most movies that could be considered romance or drama just bore me. I'm not good with horror movies and have actually been known to go into shock watching particularly gory films.

Favorite music: Hard rock, some pop, but not teeny-bopper stuff. 80's music is good for long car trips. I'm also into techno, mostly because it's great for dancing and I can fly away if I want to when I listen to it. I am NOT into drugs! Disturbed rocks my world. I've always liked their music, but over the last year or so they've become my motivational soundtrack. Three Days Grace occasionally takes up residence in my CD player. Linkin Park's older stuff will always be part of my top five list. My friends are forever exposing me to new stuff, and they've got great taste.

Favorite foods: A good steak, an enormous salad, fresh fruit. Since I'm (trying to) eat Paleo, a lot of things are out of bounds, but overly processed, salty crap was never my favorite thing anyway.
The six things I could never do without
Pride. I must have my pride, or I'm just not me anymore.

Curiousity. It keeps me moving forward and helps avoid boredom. I'm intensely curious about just about everything, and, if I'm paying attention, I retain information forever. Between the two traits, my head is full of trivia and useless information.

Reading material. I read something every day, usually a novel of some kind though if I'm really pressed I'll grab a newspaper and read it front to back. A novel is the first thing I bought after leaving boot camp. No, I'm not joking. I bought a book. Then I worried about breakfast.

Music is also necessary. In the absence of music I start to get a little weird and make some of my own. I can sing waaaay too many songs from memory.

Exercise, as I am an endorphin addict, and it's one of the saner ways to get my fix. This works well with being military.

A need that is almost never truly satisfied is good people to surround myself with. Left in the company of jerks and assholes, I become less the person I want to be and more a person who hurts people. Good people help me to regulate my conduct, and make it easier for me to recognize the face looking back at me in the mirror.

Things I would rather not live without but do not consider essential include: My climbing shoes, as I have never met a rock wall I didn't like, and climbing barefoot would be painful. Somewhere to cook, because I'm good at it and enjoy it. I also like having control over what I'm putting in my body, and if I cooked it from scratch I know exactly what's in it. A comfortable place to sleep is also extremely important to me. If I'm not sleeping well I'm not performing to my full potential.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to improve myself. No matter how wonderful other people may think I am, I'm well aware there's lots of room for improvement, lots of things that I can work on. Physically and mentally, I still have lots of room for positive growth.

The contrast between my self-aware realization that I will never, ever, be normal enough to be popular or well-liked in most environments, and yet still wish I could be. It's not a comfortable dichotomy.

How to get away with violating certain uniform regulations. Specifically, the ones regarding piercings and tattoos. I'm not sure how far I can push my chain of command, but I'm sure I'll find out soon.
On a typical Friday night I am
Immediately after work, I'm probably at the gym. Afterward, I can be just about anywhere. At the pool, or climbing, or going to karaoke, or maybe going over to a friend's place to watch movies, or any number of other things. My weekends almost always begin with my phone ringing and one of my friends announcing that we're going to go do something AWESOME. And then we do.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I signed the National Marriage Boycott petition and wear an Equality ring. If you don't know what that means, ask. I'd be happy to explain it.

I'm probably sterile. Since I don't want to have kids, I don't really consider this a problem. But it's worth mentioning.

I have six tattoos, and already have several more planned out.

Very few people can accurately predict my behavior. Not because I'm inconsistent, but because I'm consistently strange and occasionally refuse to act my age. This is especially obvious when someone has given me a lot of coffee.

I recognize the hypothetical quantity known as "too many" as regards shoes, clothes, purses, and other similar items. If I never use it, have no reasonable expectation of ever using it, and have owned it for more than two years, chances are I don't need it. This hypothetical quantity does not, however, apply to books. EVER.

I have been called a freak by a drag queen for saying that some guys look hot in skirts. Specifically mini-skirts.

My definition of success doesn't include private jets, it includes personal accomplishment, pride in a job well done, and the basic comforts of life.

Really, I'm not very secretive. If someone asks a question, I'll either answer it or tell them I don't want to talk about it.
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like girls
  • Ages 27–34
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends
You should message me if
If you're open-minded and want to talk.

If you have a firm grasp of the English language in both its spoken and written forms. Lest anyone be surprised, let me be blunt: if you send me a message that looks like "hi how r u" I will not be nice to you. I will respond, but it will be powerfully and eloquently negative. You have been warned.

If you read my entire profile and didn't consider it a waste of time.

If you think that, even with all the interference the military can throw at relationships, you still want to be friends with a Sailor.
