As for me, I've been to Iraq and Afghanistan with no deployments planned for the near future. I'm finishing up school so I can start working as a programmer. As nerdy as that sounds, I'm not a huge nerd, well, not about everything.
I would consider myself a laid-back guy and would be looking for the same in a mate. I'm looking for a smart witty girl: someone that can make me laugh and also hold intelligent conversations. You get more points for intelligence that you do for looks, but being very pretty never hurts.
(25JUN2013) It's become apparent to me that I need a woman with a little bit of country in her, or at least a woman that can appreciate a man with a little country in him. What I mean is I have eaten wild game, been hunting and I can also do repairs around the house and I know how to work on cars. It seems the art of being the "jack of all trades" has been slowly disappearing over the generations, but that is another story. As I mentioned before I'm also in school to work a white collar job for two reasons, 1) I enjoy what I do and 2) the service industry is where the economy is heading.
As far as what I'm looking for in the relationship department, I would be ok with some casual dating or if we really hit it off, serious dating. I'm always down with meeting new people and going out to new places. Variety is the fruit of life (or something like that).
