My self-summary
First of all, thanks for taking a moment to stop by and visit.
At this point, these words must represent me, as I cannot speak directly to you, at least not right now.

I am a gentle soul, who has always wanted someone to share, so many of the things that God has put in our paths.
Some small, some large, but all of them having some significance in the evolution of who we are.

My favorite quote from my grandfather,...
"When you come to the fork in the road,..take it."

I won't say that I am a simple man, because that wouldn't be very accurate.
But, I enjoy the simple things in life, and not every minute, of every day needs to be fireworks at a fast pace.

The subtle hues of a sunrise, or a sunset.
The sounds of crickets, the wind, through the trees.
Football in the fall, walking through the fallen leaves, music to soothe the soul, or to dance and move to.

Fine wine, good food, maybe a stolen piece of cake for desert?
Concerts, Movies, live music, holding hands, wandering through flea markets, or yard sales, walking the beach somewhere, hiking in the mountains, and on and on.

I think that a lot of the profiles you have read, have several points in common with mine, and I am sure they are good folks. But in my years, I have encountered only a handful of men like me.
Conceited? No, just being honest and up-front, because you know what you are looking for, and I know precisely what I am looking for.

The trick to it, is to find what you are looking for.

(Borrowing from Emerson,...)
To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics, and to endure the betrayal of false friends;
To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others;
To leave the world just a bit better, whether by a healthy child, or a little garden patch, to know even one life has breathed a little easier, just because you have lived. This is to have succeeded. -Ralph Waldo Emerson

(and now borrowing from Rhett Butler-Gone With the Wind),......
"You need to be kissed...and often...and by someone who knows how"

Some say it's destiny
Whether triumph or tragedy
But I believe we cast our nets out on the sea
And nothing we gather
Comes for free.

Best of luck to us all.
What I’m doing with my life
Finished my 3rd degree, and now work for the DoD as a photographer.
I’m really good at
Taking something technical, and making it simple.
I also consider myself way above the norm for being chivalrous and courteous to everyone, not just the women in my life. (They also greatly benefit from this trait)
Great conversationist, exciting, in my own fashion, but never too boisterous and loud.
The first things people usually notice about me
Solid, but somewhat stoic demeanor, my general poker face.
(Not angry, just look stoic at times.)
My eyes. (They are a direct window to my very soul)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite Book,.. hmmm, The Death of Superman. Great story and much I can relate to.
Favorite Movie(s) Action, with some underlying romantic overtones.
Music,.. The Beatles, Neil Diamond, The Moody Blues and Enya grows on me.
Food,.. well Italian, Mexican, and its tough to beat a great steak from the grill.
The six things I could never do without
1. Love (in great quantities).
2. Good health.
3. A comfortable warm home. (Doesn't have to be fancy)
4. Interesting and creative hobbies.
5. A good fast computer to interface with this challenging world.
6. A warm, willing, sensuous and attractive woman to be the center of my emotional universe. (Refer to #1 above)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How best to answer some of these essay questions this site wants answered! (*sheesh*)
On a typical Friday night I am
Either at a ballpark shooting pictures of a game, or walking into a nice restaurant. It varies with the seasons and the weather, but with the right woman, perhaps traveling to someplace special for a 'lost' weekend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have tried out for the part of the Beast, in The Beauty and The Beast stage play. (I didn't get it, they said I was too nice)
You should message me if
I have generated any curiosities that you would like to know about me. This relationship farming on the Internet is a new game, the rules are different, but I am of the opinion that I would much rather have, and be someone special in someones life, than to live without her, alone.
