"You'll know you've met a truly humble man, not when you meet a man who talks low about himself, but when you meet a man who doesn't talk about himself at all." ~by C.S. Lewis
(My favorite quote)
I suppose you could call me the "strong, silent type." I am generally a very reserved and laid back person, but I'm driven and focused when I need to be. I am a man (not a boy) who has a part time job, and who knows what qualities/values he wants in a women, and I don't play games. I have two wonderful sisters, and two awesome parents.
I'm very close to my father, in particular. My dad tells me there are two very important questions a man must ask himself, in order: "Where am I going in life, and who's going to go there with me?" I know where i'm going in life. I've been finishing up my soft more year of college, and am working on my BA in Criminal Justice. After that I plan to receive law enforcement training to help me in my career choice as a US Marshall. (I eventually hope to become a member of the Secret Service someday.) I'm well educated, I love my country, I believe in Justice, and I love protecting/standing up for people. Thus, it's a win-win.
My hobbies include reading, collecting comics, taking walks, exercising, hanging out with friends, and Martial Arts, among others. I also enjoy listening to good music, and playing the drums. (Sorry, but rap doesn't count.) I also love animals; birds of prey in particular, but I like dogs too. The Great Horned Owl is, IMHO, the most beautiful animal on the Blue Planet. (And my favorite, too!) I'm a big movie person. My favorite line is from the John Wayne movie, "Mclintock": "You have to be a man first before you're a gentleman, and he (the governor) misses on both counts!" I also enjoy making people laugh, but I try not to over do it. My favorite places in the world is Barnes and Noble, and N. Carolina.
What am I looking for in a woman? To be quite honest, at this point in my life, I'm genuinely interested more of a friendship than a relationship. But hey, if that friendship culminates into a relationship, then that would be awesome! IMPORTANT SIDE NOTE: I've never been in a boyfriend/girlfriend relationship with a woman. I believe in treating women with respect, though I will not allow myself to be dominated by them. I despise men who desire to use a women for their own personal gains, and I don't do one-night-stands. I am also a Christian, and I love kids. I'm a BIG family person, and I am pretty old fashioned. (As in, courtship old-fashioned.) In the end, however, I'm looking for a woman who loves Jesus Christ with all her heart, as I do. It's OK if she's not perfect, or even if she's a little broken. That's alright, you see, because so am I.
In closing, I would like to leave you with this: “If you don’t see the real me, you won’t see what mercy’s done. If you don’t see my weakness, you won’t see what love has won. If you don’t see the distance from the darkness to the sun, you won’t see…Honestly.”
