I believe in fidelity and faithfulness in a marriage / serious relationship. Once you have taken a vow to be faithful to one person, you should honor that vow. Period.
I am more concerned about a person's attitude than I am about their chronological age. A person can be 50 years old, but act as juvenile as a teenager, or be 25 and have a sense of self and purpose. I am looking for someone who knows who they are, but are not jaded on life.
Although I am not a member of the National Rifle Association (NRA), I am a firm believer in the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution (The right of the people to keep and bear arms). I am not a hunter, but then, the Second Amendment is not about "hunting". The Second Amendment protects the rest of the Constitution and Amendments. It also affirms a person the individual right to protect him/herself from physical threats. And yes, I do exercise my Second Amendment rights. I own several firearms. If you don't care for firearms, then we will not get along very well.
The shootings in a Connecticut school in 2012, a theater in Colorado in 2012, a church in South Carolina in 2015, a theater in Louisiana in 2015 and other similar acts of murder are atrocities that should never happen again. True proponents of the Second Amendment and its true meaning are appalled by these acts. This is not what the Second Amendment is about. Violence against anyone for reasons other than legitimate self defense cannot be tolerated by a civilized society.
I did not vote for Obama either time, and I do not agree with what he, Joe Biden, Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, the RINOs (Republicans-In-Name-Only) and other "progressives" are doing to our great nation. Socialism is not the answer.
Since I was stationed in Hawaii from 1992 until 1997, I had the opportunity to run in and finish the Honolulu Marathon three times (1994, 1996, 1997) and was on the U.S. Army Hawaii Powerlifting Team (1996). I still make it to the gym when I can, which lately has been a little easier since we now have a couple of 24-hour gyms in the area.
Both my father and I served in the Army, and as a result I have had the opportunity to live in or visit many countries. Some of these include: Germany, Japan, Korea, Kenya, Kuwait, Afghanistan, Austria, Switzerland and quite a few more. To this day, I enjoy visiting other countries when I have the chance. Some of the places on my "To Visit" list are (in no particular order): The Seychelles, Australia, Nepal, India, China, New Zealand and a whole lot more!
I do not smoke or use drugs. I have no tattoos or body piercings. I know... pretty dull, huh? These are things I just never needed in my life. Also, I have no criminal record, and I would like the same from you.
This is just a short "Who I am". Thank you for your time.
