My friends would describe me as spontaneous, hilarious, caring, and above all else charming. I'm understanding when it comes to 'business'; after all I work odd hours as an EMT, and volunteer every Saturday with a Navy youth program. I love to be out doors, explore the outer banks of beautiful New England, occasionally visit friends and family in other states, go to the shooting range, sailing with the family, the beach and other activities. I can't say I've ever been picky, but I do appreciate a woman that's got her life in some order, who is mature and respectful.
I have two tattoos, both are important to me. Also, after serving in the United States Navy for 7 years, (recently Honorably Discharged), I've been able to grow my awesome beard! Hopefully you appreciate it =] I am Irish/ German so I've got the blue eyes, brown hair and dark red beard. I'm funny as hell, I love to joke around; guess you could say I like to show my inner child. But I know when and where it isn't appropriate. I am an adult and I can be professional.
I do have friends of both sexes; so if you a woman that is easily jealous just for the fact that a couple of my friends are ladies, then please do not read further and keep fishing. I have been in relationships where I've been severely hurt, to the point where I wouldn't even wish the pain upon a foe.
I'm looking to date, "test waters" per say, and if things work out, start a relationship. This app takes up much of my iPad/iPhone's battery so if I don't respond don't be insulted. I'll get back to you.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
A first date would have to be coffee, or dinner. Something where face to face conversation is possible. Going to the movies is stupid, there's no conversation and it's a bit too cliché. I won't say too much, I can't spill out all my tricks. After all it is supposed to be a "fisrt date".
