My self-summary
I am, above all else, honest and loyal to a fault. I do not play games, I know what I want even if I don't always know how to say it. I have a strong vocabulary, and as a severely hopeless romantic, I know how to put that vocabulary to verse [although, admittedly, it usually one stanza at a time]. Let it be said now, however, if I spin my words and feelings into verse, they are honest and true. I do not use my talents for ill gain. I know that at my age, I will likely not find love at first sight, but that's ok, because I have learned that that kind of love is often fleeting and true love, real love, often grows with time. So here I am. Looking for someone I can care for deeply, with whom that caring can grow into a beautiful love. I do not expect this overnight. One thing I will state here, I smoke. I will not try to change you, do not try to change me. If I chose to quit-it will be because I am ready to-no other reason. Also, I am pagan, but I am not the "in your face" kind, I keep my faith and practices to myself, if you are of another faith than mine I expect the same courtesy. I am open to discussing faiths, but not as a means of conversion, instead out of a mutual respect for it.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a retired Army veteran, so I don't work. I spend my time with various art forms [Photography, Pen and Ink, occasional poetic transcription].
I’m really good at
i am an artist of many mediums [though I do mostly stick with photography and pen & Ink drawing]. I have also been told I give a decent foot and shoulder rub. Also I am an excellent cook [and I do not like to share the kitchen]. Fluent in Sarcasm. I do have to say, I don't like showing my art before it is finished, but I am always pleased to show anyone interested my finished work.
The first things people usually notice about me
Honestly, It used to be the dimples and the blue eyes, but lets face it, these days it is usually the tracheostomy. But I do not get upset with people when they notice/ask about the trach, it's only natural for people to be curious. I am not ashamed of the trach, It isn't from smoking, just from a medical procedure that saved my life. It has in the last year and a half become a part of me. And to be a little crass [which I can be when it's uncalled for lol] It does have its uses [ladies ;) lol j/k, but not really].
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Terry Pratchett's Discworld, The Outsiders
Movies: Any comic book based movie, The Boondock Saints, The Notebook, The Outsiders
Shows: Walking Dead, Supernatural, Dexter, Smallville
Music: Everything [nearly literally, as I have a music collection of nearly 10,000 songs] but 2NE1 is my FAVORITE
Food: I love food in general-I love to cook, and will cook nearly anything. More so, I love to have someone to cook FOR. Fair warning though, I am horrible when it comes to sharing the kitchen, so if you want a man that will keep you from having to set foot in it, look no further lol.
Six things I could never do without
1.My Daughters
4.My Camera
5.My Kitties camry
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Zombie Apocalypse, random weird things, a lot of things I don't really know how to categorize, but if you are around me you will know what they are as I tend to share lol. I blame sleep deprivation coupled with functional insanity.
On a typical Friday night I am
Alternate weekends, I am probably spending it with my oldest daughter watching movies or playing PS2 with her. The weekends I don't have her, I am probably sitting at home doing about the same thing. I have a pretty open schedule being retired lol.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Anything really. I don't have secrets-I have no word filter, so whatever I think I tend to say.
You should message me if
Any questions, queries, quandaries, or quagmires, feel free to message me. If your interest is piqued, message me. If you have need for conversation, message me. Also, I'm not looking to make friends-I have friends. I am looking not for everything, but for someone that can be everything to me. I often get cast in the friend-zone, and I'm kind of tired of it, I want to meet someone that isn't instantly looking to put me there. I have a big heart and can offer a lot emotionally, I just want the chance.
The two of us
