Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
As to who I am and what I’m “about,” for those of you into such
things, I'm a ESTP. As to my outlook, I’ve "pushed the bounds" for
a good portion of my adult life: bomb disposal technician,
parachutist, rugby player, scuba diver, Special Operator ("Green
Beret" in the vernacular), one time aspiring stunt man. I’m proud
of my French, Irish, German, and Italian heritage.
I'm practical, bright, disciplined, and motivated. Like everyone
who's been around for almost half a century, I have some 'dings'
and some blemishes but nothing that prevents me from loving life

I'm on the lookout for a smart, fit, attractive woman who loves
life and all that it entails, both the high points and the low
ones; someone who’s just as happy going out as staying in and
enjoying a quiet evening; a fit woman who likes the mountains and
the water; who is as comfortable camping and hiking as they are in
a five star hotel in an exotic world capital; someone who, like me,
can let go of their ego and admit when they are wrong. Similarly, I
would like someone who has a willingness to learn and to teach as
well as adapt and grow.

soft, wet kisses that last three days. "
