I am a veteran paratrooper for the US Army, and while I am out of the army now (honorably), I doubt the army will ever be out of me. I have lived (2yrs or more) in Anchorage Ak., Las Vegas Nv., Ft Bragg Nc., and now Joplin Mo. I don't know many people from this area, so I mostly end up reading, messing around on the computer, taking my dogs to the park, or shooting baskets at the school down the street. I would like to find someone to spend time with and enjoy what Missouri has to offer together.
I am an animal lover, I have been known to rescue or foster various different critters from time to time. I think that I am a good guy. I was taught to be respectful of women by my father, and society hasn't managed to erase that yet. That being said, I also like to have a good time. I cuss like a soldier when I am among friends, and I am fiercely loyal to those I care for.
My sense of humor is what I consider to be my greatest trait. I try to find humor in almost everything, and I would like to find a woman who can appreciate that quality, or even better, share it...
Musically I am all over the place really. I don't discriminate by genre. Basically, if it has a decent beat, and or melody, I am good. I will listen to rock, rap, country, and even some classical fusion or EDM if the mood hits.
Every time I almost think humanity will be okay, I see someone struggle with the self-checkout for 20 minutes.
If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got.
Anything where we can get to know each other, as I said, I don't know the area very well; Maybe pool, mini golf, or bowling. A little friendly competition to break the ice. Or something adventurous might be fun like skydiving or bungee jumping. I am also fine with a formal dining atmosphere. I think it should be something we both enjoy. I would have to take some time to get to know you and see what kinds of interests we share, and then I would try to plan something around that.
