I am -- and have done -- many things. I love life and see life as a gift from God and an adventure. I love to travel, and have traveled and lived all over the US, Europe, and the Middle East. I am a Christian (attend church every Sunday). I have been an Air Force Officer and flight crew (I've flown supersonic), a business manager, a teacher, a tax preparer, and a professional mediator (over 1200 mediation's). I've completed 3 full marathons (26.2 miles) and a dozen half-marathons (13.1 miles) (I don't have anymore marathons in me though). The best thing I've done, and I mean the very best, is be a good father.
Okay, I've done a few things and been a few places. But, what kind of man am I? Others have told me: I have a pleasing personality and demeanor, I'm quiet, not demanding, and well mannered. I'm kind, considerate, thoughtful, and respectful. I am intellectual, educated, and curious about people and the world. I usually avoid crowded places. I like people, but I like them better one or two at a time. I prefer to sit one-on-one and have a good conversation than be with a group of people in a crowded, loud place. Most people like me and like my company.
I'm looking to grow a friendship and long term committed relationship with a good woman (translated, committed, monogamous, with marriage as the ultimate goal) . I love life and living and I want someone to share life and life's adventures and experiences with. I can do it by myself, but I'd much rather have company; a best friend, a companion, a woman to love, and a woman who can tell me from her heart that she loves me. I know how to love. I'll take the chance, and put my heart out there!
Though I've lived and traveled all over the world I was raised in Arizona and Southern California, and after a thirty-two year absence I have returned to So Cal. There is so much to see in the world. Come with me, we'll go places and see things, maybe some places you didn't even know existed. I love a good road trip. Get in the car and drive for the weekend, or longer. Have you ever taken a trip to 'Nowhere?' I've been to 'Nowhere' more than once, but I always end up somewhere. Come with me, I want my best friend and the woman I love with me to share in these trips and adventures.
I love college football (not a big pro fan). I am a Trojan fan (Fight On), have been since 1965. My son is a Georgia Tech (and USC) graduate, and we root for the Yellow-jackets too (it gets a little confusing because he is in medical school at the Univ of Georgia and we've added the Bull Dogs to our favored list. It's like USC/UCLA, a house divided). Fair warning -- I really get into it (its a family thing, text messages fly between family members in various states as we watch games). It's only on Saturdays in the fall and it's all about fun. We do love it. Would be nice if you could get into it too.
