For a Blessing to all of you wonderful ladies out there who are looking for a true partner in life. This is going to be a read for you. If after it all you feel you aren’t interested but would like to be friends, please message me. I can’t have enough good friends. Life is too short not to meet new people.
I am not what you normally see here. I don’t know how long I will stay. This site and others like it seem to be full of dishonesty and exaggerations.
First off, I can write. It’s that simple. I am an avid reader and possess a deep knowledge of the English language. If you can’t get through a book, or don’t understand how to use the Dewey decimal system then I will save you the time by wishing you best of luck on your journey and asking you to move on.
Secondly, I am a dedicated father. My kids come second. God comes first. I am aiming for quality here not quantity, so if that means a percentage of ladies stop reading there…I accept that. I also respect mothers, and I for one understand what responsibilities you have. I will never expect you to miss a requirement with your children to be with me, as I would expect the same consideration from you. I know this scenario will change when/if I meet someone who holds the potential to hold my heart, but until then my children and God hold it.
If you got past that initial part and are still reading…sorry, There is more.
I am sensitive and strong. THIS IS POSSIBLE. I will be the first to admit to any of my male friends, who are all real friends and not ‘buds’, that I cried during the end of 'Les Miserables'. I also have no problem mountain biking, sky diving, riding a motorcycle and I love driving my ’70 Chevelle. I am a leader in the military and have been to war. If that makes you run…sorry. I probably just limited my prospects to prior service, ah well.
I appreciate a strong woman and someone who can be a b*tch. Let’s be real. Guys can be a**holes, even the nicest ones, and girls can be b*tches. We all have our moments. If I wanted a pushover I would get a mail-order bride (not sure if that stuff even still exists). I want an American woman, nothing less. Confidence from a woman I can appreciate, arrogance and selfishness are not symptoms of confidence. I hope you know the difference.
So, if you got this far, congratulation! It gets good now.
I am actually educated. No kidding. I am working on my MBA right now and will be completed sometime in June/July 2013. I am a military leader with 12 years in the service and plenty of experience. I am the kind of leader who believes in motivation and that every person has potential, it is up to the leadership to find it and bring it out. I am extremely thoughtful and family oriented. I am not afraid to meet your parents, siblings, friends, whomever. I am just as comfortable in a crowd of strangers as I am in a one-on-one conversation with you over a glass of wine. ( I like wine. I know my wine, but I love beer and a good mixed drink too)
I have no baby-mama-drama. My ex and I have separated on good terms and with the help and guidance of many counselors, friends, and family. We worked hard at our relationship and came to the conclusion we were happier apart. We are friends and respect each other’s space. I pay all of her bills and will continue to support her until she can get on her feet and be more independent. We both support each other and understand we will find someone else. She is the mother of my children and a good friend. I respect her and hold no ill will toward her, nor does she feel inclined to see me suffer. I am separated as I live somewhere else and have papers filed and time counting down. So there is no baggage here. My kids are not baggage either, they are a blessing.
I hold a real job. I work with disabled and damaged veterans who have serious problems. I use my experience to help them get what they need from the government. I was lucky to have never been injured in battle or overseas. Not all of them were so lucky. I have been promoted 3 times in 1.5 years since starting the position and am on track to be promoted again in August.If all of this is something you might be interested in then please don’t hesitate to message me. I have an incredible amount of energy, responsibility, morality, drive, motivation, and patience. I am extremely humble and focused on life being fulfilled and sharing that life with someone. Just need to find who that someone will be. I have faith I will find her.
Here is the stuff you may find we have in common. I am a music fiend. Here I go limiting the pool again. Ween, M83, Muse, Awolnation, Modest Mouse, Guns‘N’ Roses, Airborne Toxic Event, Ratatat, U2, Of Monsters and Men, MGMT, Brandon Flowers, RJD2, Passion Pit, Cat Stevens, Doves, Brand New, Citizen Cope, Flaming Lips, Eels, Hawksley Workman, Flobots, Florence and the Machine, Coldplay, Miike Snow, Blue October, Grandaddy, Gorillaz, Garbage, Fiona Apple, K’s Choice, Regina Specter, Lana Del Rey.
I’m also a movie fiend…little less on the list here. Barfly, Harold and Maude, Meet Joe Black, Les Miserables, ALL KEVIN SMITH MOVIES, The God’s Must be Crazy, Thor, Star Trek and Star Wars, ALL QUENTIN TARANTINO MOVIES (say what you want, dude knows how to make a good film), Comedies, Thoughtful movies, movies with a true message or more than one meaning underneath.
No horrors, Sorry. I have seen enough tragedy and bloodshed. I don’t need to see it on a date.
I am a little old school here. I believe the goal of a first date is to get to know the other person.so a rock concert,despite being cool, does not make a good first date. I need to be able to talk to someone, see facial expressions,and look into their eyes. I believe the eyes say more about a person sometimes than a 1200 word biography. I would prefer dinner and some other public even or scene, such as beneits or coffee and desert at a different location after. Some places are known for good deserts, and i love good food.first date I will pay everything. I will drive to your location of choice. I will be a gentlemen but I do expect that in return you can understand what a gentlemen really is. He is not a ‘sugar daddy’. And I do expect I will meet a lady. I am all for the woman’s movement and accept that there are plenty of ladies who know more than me, are smarter than me, and better at life than me. If you think you can teach me something I am always willing to learn. I hope you are willing to learn as well. This isn’t a competition in life, but a partnership.
