Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well traveled but Minnesota born and raised. A smart career move
brought me to So-Cal 5 years ago.
I'm not in the industry so you won't find any professional
headshots or extreme flakiness on my profile.
I live in and work my aerospace career up in the Antelope Valley.
Before you LA smog breathers bash....realize here I was able to buy
a house with acres and facilities for my two horses, near horse
trails and while you're parked on the 405 I'm home after 15 traffic
free minutes . Its so much better than when I commuted in from the
Dates say my blend of MN nice and chivalry is refreshing change
from how many others get too forward
After trying ♫OK Cupid♫
off and on for 3 years it seems I'm one of
the few not lying on my profile.
No need to lie trying to be everyones cup of unrealistically
perfect tea online when in the real world women frequently think
I'm their shot of tequila.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Since 2005 I've combined a successful civilian career with part
time service in the reserves .
My start in the military was before 9-11 and since then I've been
everywhere from a still smoking WTC @9-11
. to Iraq and Afghanistan. I
got out of the military reserves in December. Proud of my service
but happy its behind me.
After finding a lot of happiness working with my own horses I
decided to volunteer at a charity
providing equestrian therapy for
I spend free time on outdoor adventure, fitness, my Horses
, my pup ฅʕ••ʔฅ
like most guys I like things like my car
that's hardly unique.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm good at most things ending in 'manship like horsemanship,
marksmanship and workmanship. OK.. Wow.. After a 49 year old
literally asked to "ride the manship" I really need to rewrite
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Someone once thought I was the stunt rider in Yes Man
not my naked butt weaving through traffic..

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Of course my family and friends come first......
1. A Career that I love
2. Paying it forward.
3. Outdoors fun Fishing, hiking etc
4. Like any guy my vehicles.
5. A garage full of tools
6. My animals. Horses and a Rhodesian Ridgeback dog
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
People either use the site like it's the official Californication
FWB finder or LA's online trophy wife tryouts.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Going out with friends. It is always a nice break from work or the
warped egos and distorted aspirations found in online dating.
My Friday nights are not typical. If yours are I can fix that.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't think The Women of LA
are all the same. So stop assuming a
veteran must be a staunch conservative, have PTSD or be broke. In
my case none of the above.
In early 2013 playing "dodge rocket" in Afghanistan led to getting
flown stateside for surgery. I've been back to 100% and my civilian
life/career for over a year now. In that year I have dated a lot
but prefer to be in a great relationship which is hard to find in
