All I want out of life is a good story.
I can be a bit a goof ball and a nerd, but can also be spontaneous and romantic. I'm a very trust worthy and dependable person.... I'd like to prove chivalry isn't dead, but don't mistake me for a doormat. I'm very straight forward and always try to be clear when speaking. Once I get to know you I'm an open book. I'm looking to be with that someone whose picture I'll keep in my wallet; the proverbial lime in my coconut.
I'm worked as licensed massage therapist until the economy crashed, but have since kept my license up. I've worked for the National Park Service around the country, places like Canaveral, Fl; Cape Hatteras, NC; and Cape Cod, MA. (geeze that sounds like a resume) I lived in Coos Bay, Oregon for a while working with the US Bureau of Land Management. I was monitoring an endangered bird and leading guided hikes. I graduated from Stetson University with a bachelors in Environmental Science & Economics minor.
Sailing has become a recent interest of mine; currently restoring a small sailboat I inherited.
Interested in many things: science, philosophy, history, world issues; like to avoid drama. I like throwing caution to the wind, but I also like well thought out adventures. I grew up in Florida but have done some traveling: Panama City, Panama; Istanbul, Turkey; Bogotá, Colombia. I went to Haiti in March '09 and Israel March 2010. But road trips are still the best.
My father past away in May 2012 but feel good that we were able to make the most of the time we had left together the last few months.
"I want a relationship where we talk like best friends, play like kids, argue like husband and wife, and protect eachother like siblings."
borrowed that quote ^ from a nice woman's profile
I don't take pictures of myself everyday and since I can only post 8, have chosen photos that are unique and best represent what I'm in to. I weigh basically the same since I was 18 yrs old, 155lbs. I do try to take my fitness seriously... would like to find someone that has that in common. 8^D
I have been told I have nice eyes. I have a tattoo based on a Winslow Homer painting on my back shoulder. I like it, probably will get more.
When it comes to relationships,
I'm a big believer in "putting myself in another's shoes" and Common Courtesy, I give it and I expect it in return.
I believe that if someone can't remember the last time they apologized to someone for something, for anything, then there's a problem.
I hope to meet a woman who challenges and inspires me.

Something Clever that We'll Remember...
I like to go sight-seeing... even if its something I've seen before.
If I think its cool and amazing then I want to share it with someone I think is cool and amazing.
Let's just be laid back, have some fun, and see where that goes.
