I am optimistic, hardworking, family-oriented, open, thoughtful, very patient, nurturing, loyal and an excellent listener. (I’m a classic ISFJ “Protector - Guardian” personality type under the Keirsey Temperament sorter; you can Google it if you want more details.)
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 (teen mothers, sibling groups, etc.)... 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 an absence of almost two decades.
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
Favorite food: Italian (by a hair) followed by Everything Else
My Extended Family/Friends
