Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a 54 year old divorced, retired Marine. I am a kind, stable,
compassionate man who is looking for someone with the same
qualities. At this stage in our lives, we have all experienced the
many joys of living, along with some of its heartaches and
tribulations. This is a given. What matters most is what we want to
do with the rest of our lives.
I am interested in developing a good solid friendship, and then

activities, love to travel, and enjoy talking about life in

My ideal mate is kind, considerate, compassionate, and takes the
time to stay in shape. She is also flexible, both with her time,
and her thinking. She is humble, but self confident enough to say
what is on her mind, with tactfulness of course. I am not looking
for god's gift to man, but I am attracted to people who are often
described as salt of the earth!
I enjoy craft beers, local wines, and camping, and would rather be
outside on any given day verse inside watching television.
As for love, I believe that it is friendship caught fire. I have to
know someone for a while before I leap, but when I do, the
possibilities are endless!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a Veterans Service Officer for a local county government, and
spend most of my time helping veterans deal with all aspects of
social service issues. This includes homelessness, career planning,
and end of life care. I have recently started taking some post
masters classes in history,lifespan development and social
problems,: really just for the fun of it. It is a great feeling to
be an adult and be able to take classes and not have to worry about
grades or a career, what a relief!
Mostly, I am learning as I go along, cherishing the family and
friends that I have, and continuing to be open to what life dishes
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Thinking outside the box, coming up with creative solutions to get
around bureaucratic roadblocks. I am also good at reading people
and putting them at ease.
I am very good at being a loyal friend!
