I grew up all over the southeast, but I consider Miami Florida to be my true home because I was born there and all my family lives there. I joined the Navy 8 years ago. I'm happy with my choice given the experiences I never would have had otherwise, but I'm not the type that's going to go on and on or brag about my service. What else? I'm single, never married, and no kids. I've always felt that I just haven't met the right girl. I think that if I were ever in love I still would be. I am by all means open to a relationship, but I do insist on taking things slow. I'm definitely a soccer nut(big reason I'm going to Brasil). Hated it as a kid and then started coming around about 6 years ago while on my first deployment to Iraq. I don't need you to love soccer like me, but I would need you to accept if not support it.
One of the last girls I dated would often ask me what my flaws were. I don't think I'm perfect and I don't aim to be. It would make me very uncomfortable if you thought I was. I value someone's opinion more if they simply think I'm a good guy rather than perfect. I'm also not looking for someone perfect, just perfect for me. It doesn't take a flawed person to appreciate your flaws. I'm looking for someone who is confident, classy, smart, and sexy. I want a partner who is my equal, my friend. I always feel like saying, "I don't like drama" is a sign of someone who often finds it or vice versa. Instead, I am looking for someone who appreciates peace and actively seeks it. I have my reasons for not being close to my immediate family, but I would prefer to date(marry eventually) someone who is close to their family so that I might know what it's someday to be a part of that. A friend told me that she wished something like that for me given my past and it really stuck with me. I favor comfort and happiness(with passion and dedication) over excitement in a relationship. It's not exactly a secret, I am a hopeless romantic. I want to find someone who wants and appreciates it.
