I am optimistic, hardworking, family-oriented, open, thoughtful, very patient, nurturing, loyal and an excellent listener.
(I’m a ISFJ personality type under the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator or Keirsey Temperament sorter; commonly called a “Protector/Guardian/Defender”. You can Google "ISFJ" it if you want more details.)
I *hate* to ask for directions. Or assistance.
I was raised Protestant and I’m still spiritual, but I rarely attend church.
I’m comfortable with a wide range of people, cultures, and social settings, maybe in part because I've traveled to over 20 countries.
I am the product of Small Town America, and prefer small towns to big cities; but I realize each has its good points and its bad.
I have a military background (with the Air Force) and I was a licensed foster parent (specializing in teen mothers and sibling groups)... So I'm not easily frightened - or shocked... :-)
But I know I need to maintain some semblance of balance in my personal life, and I genuinely miss having a special woman to share things with. So I’m re-entering the dating scene after a long absence.
I’m hoping the internet will be a useful tool to meet someone who I'm not *completely* incompatible with... ;-)
Favorite movies: "Monty Python and The Holy Grail"; "Animal House"; "Pharaoh's Army"; "Taking Chance" and "The Quiet Man"...
Favorite musical: "Paint Your Wagon" ( Clint Eastwood *and* Lee Marvin - and they SING!... It just doesn't get much better than that!... LOL...)
Favorite music: Classic Rock, Contemporary Country
UPDATE: At the Rascal Flats concert last month the lead singer mentioned they have been touring for 16 year now. Holy crap! Does this mean I should take "Contemporary" out of the type of Country music I prefer? :-/
Favorite food: Italian (by a hair) followed by Everything Else
My Friends/Extended Family
A Decent Cup of Coffee
