If I checked out your profile or hit 'meet' and didn't send a message its because I don't get many responses and it gets old. Doesn't mean I'm not interested.
I spent 13 years in the Marine Corps, recently retired medically due to an injury. It was great seeing the world, 17 different countries and I'd still like to travel. I'm planning to go back to school, for now welding since that's always fun.
I ride my motorcycle everywhere. My hobbies are tattooing, wrenching on bikes/cars, and cooking. I've got quite a few tattoos, several of them have a norse theme. I'm a bit of a jack-of-all-trades, passionate about many things, and if you stick around you may be one of them.
I have 2 daughters, 11 and 7, who I share joint custody of and live with their mom. They are one of the few things that can instantly brighten my day. One is a 'daddy's girl' the younger is a 'princess' and loves to dress the part.
If you ask me records sound the best. My taste in music is varied but some of my favorites are Johnny Cash, Offspring, Misfits, Social D, and Volbeat to name a few. I have a love of history, theology, and mead. Anything I get an interest in I tend to read up on.
I can be quiet and reserved but that usually means I'm trying to figure something or someone out. On the other hand get me talking about one of interests and I may be hard to shut up. I'm not too predictable but if you can keep up then it might turn out to be something pretty pleasant.
What do I want? Good question, someone who is as different from me as similar, has their own identity and wants, not needs, me in their life. A woman that knows who she is, will enjoy just jumping on the motorcycle and going nowhere in particular. Sit together and watch a movie or go out just 'cause. There definitely needs to be a 'spark', which appears to be the most illusive thing in life. A woman who can take initiative is always attractive too. Honestly I miss that feeling of being in love and that unique passion that ensues.
It helps if you're honest, a little artistic, can hold an intellectual conversation, like beards, motorcycles, and can keep up with my lifestyle. Squeamish may not care to apply.
