I am optimistic, hardworking, family-oriented, open, thoughtful, very patient, nurturing, loyal and an excellent listener. (I’m a classic ISFJ “Protector - Guardian” personality type under the Keirsey Temperament sorter; you can Google it if you want more details.)
I was raised Protestant and I’m still spiritual, but I rarely attend church.
I’m comfortable with a wide range of people, cultures, and social settings, maybe in part because I've traveled to over 20 countries.
I am the product of Small Town America, and prefer small towns to big cities; but I realize each has its good points and its bad.
I have a military background (with the Air Force) and I was a licensed foster parent (teen mothers, sibling groups, etc.)... I'm not easily frightened - or shocked... :-)
