A little about me...5'9", slim but fit. I'm currently semi-retired from the military, but planning to go back to work one day, likely after a lengthy university program (not back to the army...ever!). I love to travel, and have been all over the world both with work and for fun. I don't drink or use drugs anymore; I get my high from rock climbing these days. I love the outdoors, and spend a good part of my summers outside, usually on the side of a mountain or rock face as often as I can swing it. I paintball pretty regularly as well, but that's more of a sideline activity. When I'm at home, I've usually got my nose in a book, as I believe strongly in self-education and self-improvement. Most of my reading is in the area of various sciences, but I also enjoy an occasional well written piece of fiction.
I know my profile says I smoke occasionally, but the truth is I'm a full time smoker on the edge of quitting. It's just one more step toward living my dream life, and meeting someone who does not smoke makes for an even larger incentive to stop.
I like deep discussions and intellectual pursuits. I'm attracted to intelligent, well spoken women who are self-assured and compassionate to others. I'd like to meet someone fit, preferably into climbing, hiking, and/or austere camping. I'm an atheist humanist, so those into dogmatic belief systems need not message me. Also, those that drink heavily or use drugs in any form are a huge turn-off for me. I don't mind if you drink occasionally though, but I won't be joining in. I'm finally in a place in my life where I have a lot to offer, and am looking for someone who can appreciate me for who I am, and accept the same from me.
If you like what you see, or want to know more, I'd be happy to chat and see where it goes.
It really doesn't matter what we do, for me it's about finding out what our common interests are and getting to know what each other are all about. Other than that, the details can work themselves out. I do really love rock climbing, so if you're into that, I'm definitely down for it.
