Some first impressions that one might see that stands out about me are that I have a positive witty attitude and smile a lot. I am easy going, independent, highly inventive along with observant, and self-confident. I have a natural sense of humor and always has a funny story to tell. I love animals and have a dog. I am not one to follow sports. I proudly served in the U.S. Navy from which I have a rewarding career in Nuclear Oversight with a mechanical background as a Machinist.
My personality has a combination of traits that are not typical. I have a sensitive side which makes me very much in touch with my feelings and the feelings of those around me. On the other side, I am also a highly rational/ logical thinking type (INTP). I am finding that being a rational thinker with a deep feeling side makes summing up and writing a profile on a dating site to be quite interesting.
Some of my hobbies include mechanical design, machining, woodworking, technical SCUBA diving, target shooting, foundry, exotic wood jewelry, and renovating my old house. My interests allow me to be creative and inventive. I also like muscle and antique cars. I enjoy camping with evenings around the campfire sharing fun stories and grilling, at the Lake.
I am attracted to an equally sensitive, intelligent, independent, and emotionally mature and creative type woman. My ideal match has similarities in intellectual curiosity and self-confident with a sensitivity to others as well as to her own feelings and needs. I respect and admire an independent thinking woman that can relate to me with a natural synergy.
What I like in a relationship is when we share some common goals, activities and a few similar interests as well as our own individual interests. It is important to share daily conversations. I always enjoy good conversation on whatever topic comes up. Open communication and the ability to talk about anything with trust, respect and understanding is essential.
One aspect that is important is that we share a mutual respect for each other and the ability to have an open dialogue of our thoughts, ideas and feelings on an emotional as well as an intellectual level. An open dialogue in which we are not afraid to say when we are wrong, and we can work through it. I would prefer working through differences rather than the drama of sorting through misunderstandings.
I am searching for that special like-minded woman who is ready to explore a healthy relationship where we can easily progress forward. This is well worth investing the effort and time to achieve.
I am looking forward to meeting that one special lady that is emotionally available and open to explore our similar values and naturally begin off to a great start.
I have one last thing for you to consider. There are those that have a deeper level of fears such as with commitment, or trust issues. If so then we will most likely not be a compatible match. I am looking for a similar emotional as well as intellectual starting point to match my own.
If you can relate to the way I think and feel then I hope to hear from you.
I'm a natural philosopher in many areas. I am good in the areas of mechanical design, creating things in my machine shop, and diving. I take pride in striving for quality in my craftsmanship. I enjoy designing exotic wood jewelry.I am very good at being an old fashioned romantic.
Sharing quality time with friends and loved ones.

Diving, projects in my shop, taking care of my dog, weekend plans. Etc. . . .
