A decent, respectable guy, looking for a long term relationship with one special lady. I am very outgoing and easy to get to know. Very honest and upfront, as well as tolerant of all around me. A patient person who always tries to consider the feelings of others. A great communicator, as communication is the key to any successful relationship. I am intelligent, passionate and affectionate. I work full time, and am a weekend father. I have 3 kids, who are the light of my light. The youngest is about to be a Junior at college and the oldest is in the US Air Force Reserve and just graduated from college. I am retired from the US Navy. I try to spend lots of time with them, but they are growing older, and their interests are growing as well. Really enjoy history, either reading about it, or visiting historical locations, as well as National Parks and Monuments. Favorite authors include John Grisham, James Patterson, James Clavell, Tom Clancy, James A. Michener, W.E.B. Griffin, and many others. Love movies, of all types, except the blood and gore horror types, do not care much for those. Enjoy watching some sports, baseball and soccer are by far my favorites, enjoy going to games in person as well. Listen to all types of music, except heavy metal and rap, do not care for that. I am a good listener and communicator.
A good first date would be going out to dinner or for a drink. This way, we could talk and find out about each other. This would be the most important thing to accomplish on a first date. Other events such as dancing, movies or concerts would not allow this, they could be done on later dates if we are compatible.
