I am a man who believes in hard work, integrity, and pride. I joined the US Army at age 32. I waited two days for the recruiting center to open up after closing due to the 9/11 attacks. I didn't want to live my life asking "What if?" I did something for my country and for myself. It was a crazy and life changing move after investing a number of years of hard work climbing that corporate ladder in the field I left behind...but I wouldn't hesitate for even a split second to do it all over again. I did four combat tours in Operation Enduring Freedom/Operation Iraqi Freedom. I proudly served my country for ten years only to be medically discharged at the peak of my military career. I was the lucky one in the family who got that hereditary diabetes gene. The Army feels you can no longer deploy with an insulin dependency, so if you can't deploy....you are then rendered useless by Army standards. I basically took an early medical retirement. Life goes on.... Everything happens for a reason and I'm happy with my life. I had some great adventures and excitement and now its time for another chapter. I have a very smart and very gorgeous 18 year old daughter who has me wound around her little finger. She is an awesome student and a very talented competitive dancer who keeps me busy and occasionally gives me time to take her fishing. I spend a lot of time fishing and in the mountains. It's my sanctuary and it has just become a part of my life while growing up in Utah. The mountains are quiet, relaxing, and beautiful.... Now I just want to find someone special to go with me!! I have been single for awhile now and haven't really dated someone exclusively for quite some time. I think I have a decent resume... LOL I do have some great qualities and I know I can use them to make someone special very happy. I am a master of sarcasm and whit, or so I've been told. I've also heard that I'm a pretty funny guy and I like to have fun in whatever I do. I love to make people laugh and smile!! Let's face it, I have seen enough pain and suffering in this world, especially during my military deployments. To be honest, I just can't think of anything in my life that is so bad that I can't see some kind of humor in it, or at least a bright side. You know, I just want to be honest here. At some point in life we've all craved some affection, attention, and intimate contact, from the opposite sex. It's human nature to have those feelings, but I want way more than just to get laid....and I deserve it. I'm not cocky but I am confident....I am a damn good catch!! I'm not perfect by any means.....but I am real, down to earth, smart, funny, and loyal. So... I guess I'm putting it all out there just to see what happens. If there is someone on this site for me....great!! If not, she's out there somewhere!
What I’m doing with my life
I'm not going to lie, sometimes I don't know what I've got going hour by hour....and I am loving that right now. But....that could change too. I like where things are headed...even if some of it is in reverse!!! Does that make sense???
I’m really good at
A little of this, a little of that....I am pretty good at a lot of things. If there is something I don't know, I am more than willing to learn about it. Knowledge is power. Mostly... I am really good at being me!!
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes and sense of humor....and sometimes my ass!! ;)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Horror, scifi, mystery, or action adventure all make for great books. I enjoy authors like Stephen King, Clive Barker, and Stanley Kubrick. Music....well that's a whole other animal. My taste varies by the.minute!! Some of my all time favorites include: The Cult, Ministry, Prodigy, Far East Movement, Nine Inch Nails, Tool, Alice in Chains (w/Layne Staley), Led Zep, Jane's Addiction, RHCP, HED P.E., Soundgarden and Yelawolf. I also listen to hip hop and rap like Drake, Tyga, T.I., Juicy J, Eminem, and various others. I'm always open to just about any type of music. I love a variety of different foods as well and I love to cook!! I've heard I'm pretty good at it too!! I love Mexican, Chinese, Italian, Greek, and my favorite, a good old fashioned ribeye or porterhouse steak.
The six things I could never do without
I've done without many things for many reasons. As long as I have my family and close friends, I don't think there is much I couldn't live without.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future of this country and what it holds for the kids of
today....especially my daughter.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends, hanging with my daughter or family, or at home
watching TV or a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a people watcher!! I get a kick out of the crazy things people do when they think they're "invisible." Like driving and picking their nose....or fixing their underware in the middle of Walmart.
You should message me if
If you're looking for a guy to laugh and have fun with. A guy who is real, has heart, and knows how to treat a lady. A guy that has been to hell and back and still looks at life's bullshit with a smile on my face.
