When you are good at something, you tell everyone. When you are great, they tell you..
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., Ft Bragg NC., Joplin MO and now I have returned home to Las Vegas NV..
I think my personality falls in to the category of "strong silent type". I am very deliberate and introspective. I like to think things through from all possible angles and make the best possible decision. (I know, FUN right?). I like to do strength training, and my shoulders back and chest are more developed than some, but I rarely get motivated for cardio other than basketball and swimming. I had to run 2-5 miles a day as a paratrooper, and now I am not running unless something is chasing me (and 8 times out of 10 I will still rather stand and face it).
I was raised in Alaska, where camping and fishing is arguably the best in the world, so I enjoy getting back to nature from time to time. I am not however, what you would call "country". I believe that the freedom that I fought for should encompass everyone (nationality, creed, color, sexuality, etc). I consider my self to be sapient, and enjoy intelligent conversation as much as pointless silliness (at times).
I am an animal lover,and 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.
Chivalry isn't dead, I just went to war for a bit..
Wise men speak when they have something to say, Fools speak when they have to say something..
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, and have a good time laughing. 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 or a show. I think it should be something we both enjoy, if we are having a good time, and laughing together, it really doesn't matter what we do. I will start the date with a flower, and hopefully end it with a kiss.
