My self-summary
I am who I am, a nice, easy going, passionate, country boy. (Note I didn't say "Hick" as that does not describe me in the least.) I grew up in the country and my heart will always find peace in the wild lands of this great country. And where else could you live that is more beautiful? I'm intelligent and enjoy conversation on a wide variety of topics. I really do have a passion for history, especially military history. I love being outdoors so I enjoy all the fun things you can do outdoors i.e. hiking, camping, fishing, etc. I am quite conservative in my views and in my life. I was brought up to respect women and treat them not as the "weaker sex" but as equals. I enjoy the simple things in life and while I have my "toys" the desire to "keep up with the Jones'" or stay in debt does not appeal to me in the least. Give me a nice log cabin in the mountains and I think you couldn't get any closer to paradise. I am a professional in my field, but I'm also blue collar by choice. If you're looking for a man who wears a suit and tie to work, I'm not him. Been there, done that, hated it. I actually derive a lot of satisfaction from my job and enjoy what I do. I'd be more than happy to continue with it till I retire. Hmmm, what else should I add? I'm a sappy romantic, pretty goofy with a very dry, British sense of humour. I am very eclectic in my tastes. But what it all boils down to is I am me and I'm pretty happy in my own skin. Sure, there are things I'd change and will change but I'm not ashamed of who I am now. I believe I have a lot to offer the right person. I understand and believe in an unconditional love that transcends this world.

After looking over my profile, I wonder just how I come across. I'm really just a normal guy who's tired of going to dinner alone, of coming home to an empty house. I know I was meant for
so much more than that. I'm not a social creature by nature, more of an introvert than anything. The friends I have are friends for life, and around them I feel like I can open up and be me. But those friends cannot fill the empty place in my heart. Yeah, I told you I was a sappy romantic! I don't just believe in chivalry, I try to live it every day. I'm not going to rush into a relationship. Like everyone says, friends first and we'll see what happens from there. ;) I'm a jeans wearin' type of guy. I like an occasional beer, especially at dinner. I'm comfortable in a suit but prefer not to wear one. Of course, if you'd like to go someplace nice I'll drag it out of the closet. ;) Communication is very important with me. If you are the type to bottle up emotions or problems (for whatever reason) we probably won't get along very well. Let's deal with our problems head-on, together. I could go on and on here but how about we get together for coffee or lunch and talk for a bit. I think that regardless of the image you have of me right at this moment, you'll still be pleasantly surprised.

About You

You enjoy the simple things in life, from sunsets in the mountains to late afternoons when the honeysuckles are in bloom. You’ll plan a special day for us – and I know it’ll be wonderful just because you made it happen. Maybe you’re an accomplished artist, a music lover, or a crafter, but you have an appreciation for creativity. Plus, you can hold your own in a lively debate, and offer me plenty of opportunities to learn from you. And you show passion in your beliefs through charity work, a positive outlook, and the compassionate way you treat everyone around you. On a quiet day, I might find you snuggled up with the newspaper. On a lazy afternoon, you’d enjoy playing in the yard with my dogs. You see romance in the little things – a tender note or a warm glance. And my heart flutters at just a smile from you.
What I’m doing with my life
Working on my BA in Military History for my own edification.
Watching the stars.
Pursuing my dreams! Would you like to join me?
I’m really good at
Fixing things! Anything!
Making people feel comfortable.
Stimulating conversations.
Being chivalrous. ;) No, really! :p
Listening to people and what they are really saying.
Testing myself mentally and physically.
Solving problems.
Being a beer snob! :D
The first things people usually notice about me
Introvert for about 15 minutes then look out!
I'm 46 and have a full head of hair... :D No, seriously! Its funny! Most of my high school buddies are bald as a watermelon! :D
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read a lot of political/history/fantasy books. I have to throw in some fantasy after reading all the dry history, though. I can only take so much. :) Movies, well, I like all sorts of "guy" movies like Saving Private Ryan, Blackhawk Down, Bridge Over the River Kwai, etc. but can enjoy just about any movie that has a good story. Music=everything except improvisational jazz and rap. I like all kinds of food but my passion is for beer. I don't drink to excess (very often lol), I just love beer. Don't get me started talking about beer if you're not really interested, too! :D
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Politics, world events, history, you, what I'm going to have for dinner, you, going to the gym more often, you... ;)
On a typical Friday night I am
"It's a Saturday night and I ain't got nobody, got some money 'cause I just got paid..."
Usually I'm just interested in resting after a long week at work. Everyone needs time to decompress. Of course, I'm not opposed to going out but I like to do *something* interesting on weekends which leaves only Friday night to relax. Now, if you are only available Friday nights than I'm pretty sure I can re-arrange my schedule. ;)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I had to look up poly amorous... Seriously, people? Why not just say you're looking for all the benefits of a relationship without putting forth the effort required to make it work?
You should message me if
You're bored.
You want to be entertained by my feeble attempts at humor... and I say that because most people do not "get" my sense of humor. ;)
You want to know more about me.
You like stimulating conversation.
You're interested in history.
You're looking for new friends.
You'd like to go out to dinner.
You're less than a couple hours drive unless you just think we'd be a perfect match, in which case write to me now! :D
You want to survive the coming Zombie Apocolypse.
You think I'm sexy. ;)
The two of us
