First of all, listen to Mark Gormley, "Without You". It will change your life!
Ok. A little about me... I love to find something that looks like its at the end of its road and make it nice again. I take a lot of pride in knowing that I started something and didn't cut corners. Doing something right and putting passion into it shows through when you see the end result.
I enjoy nature and natural things. HOWEVER, hairy pits on a woman...not so much. Bleh!
I have a full time job that I enjoy. I'm financially responsible. I'm a hunter and always will be. I own my own house and find it extrememly rewarding. It's great pulling up front and knowing that it is mine and that I worked my rear off to get it. I like to keep a clean home. Not like freaky clean, just not slobby. I take very good care of my things. I don't rely on others to take care of me so don't worry, I'm not looking for that. :)
Even though I do know how to dress and keep myself clean, I do not get obsessed with what is the latest fad. I dress with comfort and cleanliness in mind, not fashion show. There may be a few of you that think this means that I do not have a high standard for the quality of my life. If that is the case then we may not mesh well. I am not superficial. That is all that means. I don't feel that I have to buy a $75 shirt to express myself. I believe that how a person carries themselves and treats others is more important. I don't smoke, but I do vape.
I hated Fakebook before hating it was cool! Lol
I proudly served in the Navy and although it was awhile ago, I still consider myself fortunate that I was able to travel and experience different cultures. Traveling is something I'm always up for. People are amazing.
I have to say now that humor is HUGE for me. I am always laughing and love to make others laugh as well. Ive been told numerous times that I should do stand up or try theatre. Most times, when with friends, I seem to end up performing for everyone... or at least it feels that way. I don't mind though because like I said, making people laugh makes me feel good.
My family and friends mean everything to me. We are all very close and have helped each other through many trying times but have also been lucky enough to have had even more great times together. I feel that you can tell a great deal about someone by how they interact with their family and friends.
I love being outside and can get along with just about anyone. I'm non-cofrontational but will not be walked on. I think people are interesting and unique. It's fun to experience different settings outside my bubble.
I follow current events and like having healthy debates. I'm always looking to learn new things and would love to take my educational further.
I am allergic to cats and could never have one in my house.
Music is a big part of my life but I don't play anything, however, piano is something Ive thought alot about learning. I don't have a certain taste in music. If I were to sit here and rattle off all the groups or performers that I like, I'd be here for an hour. Let me just say that I am a HUGE Pixies fan. I also like Sinatra, Connick, Martin, Cole, Tenacious D and many many others.
**Simple request** Do people turn their heads when you are talking to them? If so, it may be possible that you have horrible breath and/or do not brush your teeth. If you breathe into your hand and your eyes start to water, you may have a problem. LOL
All that I ask is that you have just a tiny bit of faith in those of us that know how to treat not just women, but everyone. I do not claim to be perfect in every way. But I do know that if given the chance, you will not regret giving me a chance. Dont let the fact that I am not going to be chosen as the next cover model for GQ be the only reason to NOT talk with me.
