I will start with a brief summary of what I am and then tell you what I am searching for and what I want to work hard and faithfully to build. .
I am a father of an amazing seven year old daughter, 42, retired military man, well traveled and versed. I am divorced and have had a loving long term relationship since that divorce. I do not have any marriage “Burned guy syndrome” nor desire drama. I have an amazing network of true friends all over the planet that can do anything.
I gave up an incredible career working as a deep water remote operated vehicle pilot and simplified my life because being my daughter's Daddy is far more important than world travel and great paycheck.
I am a masculine man, that has an above average set of “guy skills”. I am a “shop guy” not a “sports guy”. I am chauvinistic in the good way and chivalry is not dead to me. I am loyal to a fault and work hard in all my endeavors the same. I have loved deeply openly and desire to do so for a lifetime. I am proud of that and not afraid to show that love,
If you would be mortified by me pronouncing loudly to a group of family and friends “Wow I love you my amazing gorgeous woman!!!”. I am not the one you are looking for and I wish you the best in your search.
Now what I am searching for:
I want a woman in the true sense I am not talking about some "June Cleaver" meet me at the door with a drink and you put on makeup before bed. I am taking about a woman that appreciates a masculine, capable, loving, loyal guy.
A woman that is comfortable inside her own skin that desires to age gracefully and understands “real men” actually like that. A woman that understands beauty comes from within and that I still crave you one week into a backpacking trip when you have not showered and have “five o clock shadow on your legs” A woman that is just as proud of me standing beside her as I am proud of standing beside you.
I want you to be healthy on inside and outside for our future together, I do not seek “perfection” (not even close). I know life gives us bumps dings and scars inside and out. (I know I have plenty)
I am not talking about the few extra pounds or the scar on your knee from rollerblading. I want you to have those scars those life experiences and hopefully you learned and grew from them, but I no longer seek or desire the “shattered angel”.
I know what I give and am willing to work for and I need the same. I will not accept, nor be a role model of unhealthy relationships to you, my daughter, (your children), or myself. If you are a “work in progress” and wish to “try me on”, if you are chasing your youth in the mirror, or have let yourself go completely and no longer care. I am not the man will find happiness with. I sincerely wish you the best in your search.
I want someone that when we give each other “the look” our hearts race and our bodies respond in excitement. I want that when our time is right, and we enter the bedroom with passion, joy, and open communication, you and I understand and embrace that sometimes, we want to do our best to use our bodies to merge our souls, and sometimes we just need to explore and embrace our openness, creativity and desire, to give each other the most physical and mental pleasure and satisfaction we possibly can till we lay there exhausted and can only utter “WOW.”
What I am looking for is a partner, a team mate, not someone to stand behind me, but someone that will stand beside me, and dare, try, and to share with me in creating, and building a dream.
My dream is to have someone to work hard with, to grow with, to share with, to laugh and to cry with, someone to walk beside me. Someone that I can share the ups and downs of life together, Who even though we will have arguments, make mistakes, and hurt each other, has the same deep rooted core desire like I do, the desire, the core value, to treat each other with as much love and as best as we possibly can.
I want our future, our vision, our desire, our goal, to be that rare old couple you see walking down the street, and say “Wow!!! now that is love!!!” as they pass by.
The couple that when the kids and grand kids are around at a gathering say “Geese you two get a room you are embarrassing us!” and as the youngsters age, gain wisdom, and life experience they wish to emulate us.
Do you dare to dream and work hard with me?
