Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Native-born Georgian, went to UGA, got my Bachelors and am a stolid
Ga Dawgs fan while at the same time not being that much of a
football fan. Air Force military veteran
; joined up
right out of high school. Managed to get stationed in Europe and
did 2 Eurail backpack trips visiting a plethora of cities and
countries- wonderful experiences that made joining the military one
of my favorite memories. By this time in my life I've accrued
enough experiences, trials, travels and education, sampled enough
of life to consider myself decently well-rounded in a variety of
subjects. That being said, life is still all about the journey and
who you're doing that journey with and not so much the destination,
so I'm always open to learning something new with someone
Contrary to what these misleading personality icons say at the
bottom, or if this thing describes me as less loving or whatever, I
am rather romantic, can be very passionate once I find a woman who
will invest in me as I do her, and desiring to find an intrepid
adventuress who might be up for learning how to kayak, to
investigating Steampunk, or simply movie-going companionship,
theatre sampling, check out some hole-in-the-wall to invigorate our
taste-buds, and or pass a low-key evening.
Adept at retaining old-fashioned sensibilities whilst being in-step
with modernity and the mercurial 21st century.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Mercenary writer for hire. I am involved in my local church
volunteering, I've led a small community group of guys, been on
mission trips to Romania and Haiti, and just doing what I can to
give blessings back.
I've written for creative reasons on the side, such as a
screenplay, and am working on an alternate-history, fiction
Along with Steampunk, I'm also an avid and passionate World War II
reenactor, in great part to honor my grandfather, whom all in our
family miss very much since he passed.
These hobbies have led me to taking up leatherworking as yet
another hobby to put together outfits.
On weekends, I like to light out for the woods for camping and
doing kayaking up in NC, TN and parts of GA.
I take graduate level classes or seminars part-time to keep my
brain from going to mush when I can afford them.
I operate under the mantra of never-ending, constant
self-improvement. I work out regularly at the gym, staying in shape
is important to me. But I try to self-improve in several different
areas of my life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
through death-defying rivers
(well sort of) camping and building a fire. Working on cars, some
Picking great places to go and check out.
extemporaneous or other forms of creative expression.
I can speak very well in front of people, even though I may not
have all of the facts, which naturally reveal themselves if I am
not fully prepared.
I like to run- but little over a year ago had a ski accident in
March, tore an ACL in my right knee, had surgery and have been
healing back up, slowly but steadily improving.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My interesting face, or so I have been told. I don't have tattoos,
but I do have a couple of minor scars, which are more interesting
to talk about, and which for men are also supposed to be sexy- or
so I'm told!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
A lot of science fiction types, but I have been reading more
non-fiction political books and spiritual Christian books. The
biography: "Bare Faced Messiah" by Russell Miller about L. Ron
Hubbard is engrossingly fascinating!
Thanks to Men's Health magazine I'm prepped to lead a lady in a
workout routine at the gym.
I love reading historical books ranging from Vietnam to WWII all
the way back to the Middle Ages and further back. Currently
reading: Iron Kingdom, the Rise and Downfall of Prussia. I wouldn't
mind teaching history, if a living could be managed from it,
perhaps in a private school context.
Movies/shows: Broad spectrum of the types that don't suck from
sci-fi fantasy to romantic comedy types- Count of Monte Cristo,
300, National Lampoons, Will Ferrell, Owen Wilson type comedies,
Tron:Legacy, Man vs. Food, Before Sunrise. I am loving the George
R.R. Martin Game of Thrones, the first medieval fantasy TV series
ever done that isn't a ball of smelly cheese.
Referencing back to my time in Europe- ever seen Ethan Hawke and
Julie Delpy in Before Sunrise? One of my favorite romance stories
because of my Eurail backpacking experience!
Back in my 20s, I had my metalhead phase, and every once in a
while, I'll let him out, esp. If there's a band in town I'd like to
unleash him at, but for the most time, you'd never know! A buddy
back in college turned me on to Australian rock band The Church,
which is just fabulous art-rock. I like most rock, country, old 40s
swing and jazz types of sound. Not really into rap, but I do like
some modern pop tunes which put me in a good mood like Katie Perry
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Good friends who actually care about me, my family, my relationship
with God, a good personal vision for life, and self-awareness of
everything that I am doing so that I can self-improve, on top of
feedback from others. Lastly there's my frickin' irritating, mouthy
cat (love dogs too).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
It's almost 2014 now and why don't we have space travel, flying
aircars and jetpacks. Why the human race has yet to develop a more
efficient engine than the internal-combustible one that's in all of
our cars, and why we can't get a sustainable fusion reaction going.
Basically why all the stuff we envisioned in sci-fi growing up
hasn't become more reality.
That being said- I'm not a total space cadet.
I actually spend a lot of time thinking about the state of this
country and what I can do to prevent its further degradation.
"There ought to be a man in every woman and a woman in every man.
And how horrid ones who haven't got it are; I can't bear a man's
man and a woman's woman." C.S. Lewis
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At a lecture if I can find one that interests me.
Hanging out with my buddies, movies, etc.
Dancing, or at a nice upscale place.
Loading up the car for a weekend trip of kayaking, camping or
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Um- that whenever I chop really noxious-fume white onions that
induce tremendous tears, I wear swim goggles...
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you are white/Caucasian, Hispanic or possibly middle eastern.
Sorry, these are my preferences.
If you are NOT an unrestrained gossiper who'd rather talk to her
gf's, casting judgment, etc. about something you should have the
maturity to talk and work out directly with me.
Nothing conveys 2nd class behavior to me than blowing off and
ignoring a message I wrote. My time is limited and valuable as is
yours. If I think you're worth expending effort in making the first
move toward, please send a reply, even if it is to explain why you
won't pursue further. Inbox blown out by messages? Please still
make an effort.
If you're up for taking a risk/investment to trust a guy. Or if
you'd like to expand your circle of friends over a coffee and
movie. I am still remaining hopeful for a good Christian woman, but
you don't have to be a Christian to hang out with me. Whether you
will accept me where I am at and work with me is more evidence of
what belief system you adhere to than a written description claim.
Best of luck in your search.
