Well I guess I should just get right to it, I found out about this sight from a good friend and he finally talked me into trying it out. I love being out doors! Eight years in the Marine Corps kind of got me used to that. I have had my so called "party" days and don't feel like I've missed out on anything so I still love a good time but I also love a good quiet evening taking care of my lady. I love to cook and I get plenty of smiles on the subject. I can cook all types but good old country cooking is my specialty.
I am thinking of taking my GI Bill and finishing my degree. I'm torn between two subjects but I'm leaning toward Nursing and working for the VA to help take care of other Vets because they were definitely there for me when I got home and had to deal with a few injuries I sustained "over there". I'm certainly no war hero so you don't have to worry about me boasting on my military career or talking your ear off about what we did in the war. However, I am still a Marine and I am proud of my service so I won't be offended if you ask any questions. I'm an open honest guy, like I said being 31 I have had my time with games and lies and have discovered that those type of dishonest encounters between two people only lead to disappointment and headaches and I've had my fill so if we like each other's company we do and if we don't no wasting either person's time and efforts.
I'm close to my family but I'm no momma's boy I just love my parents and grandparents. After all who better to teach me how to treat a lady than my Mom and Grandmother so I guess you could say I'm an old fashioned guy i.e. opening doors and flowers oh and with out a doubt a yes ma'am and yes sir polite southern guy. I'm not a jealous type at all but I'm no wimp either meaning only that I defend those I care for when they need my help but I believe in personal space. So if you enjoy nights out with your own friends alone and don't need a guy checking up on you every hour on the hour I'm that guy. I enjoy my personal space from time to time also I think it's healthy in any relationship be it friends or more on the serious side of dating. Not to sound like a broken record but I've learned a few things over the past few years of being in the dating world.
In closing I'll just say I'm best described I guess as a nice guy but no push over who is looking for someone I find interesting and a pleasure to be around. I am not a judge of your religion that's your business alone. I'm not possessive and expect the same in return but rest assured I am a one woman man when it comes to committed relationships hurting people is not my idea of fun. I hope this didn't bore anyone but if you finished it I guess it couldn't have been that bad. I hope this is enough to give you an idea of some of who I am.
As far as a first date goes I like to change it up so there is no set outline I guess for the perfect first date fun is fun. I like to have quiet dinners out and at home. I also enjoy more up beat settings like bars and night scenes. I think what I'm getting at is after talking to someone for awhile you can get a better idea who they are and what they like to be able to better judge a first date that holds their attention and will be fun and hopefully a pleasurable experience for us both. After that the sky's the limit if we make it to a second date I think I'll have a good idea how to keep your attention so boredom and mundane will not be the issue. We're all just people after all and life's too short to get involved in something that you're not enjoying yourself in.
