I was born and raised in a Christian home in Chicago.
I’m from a big close-knit Puerto Rican family. We were raised to be gentlemen and to live by the golden rule.
I'm an imperfect man searching for an imperfect Godly woman who has a warm soul, is genuine, soft hearted, and passionate.
I’m a military retiree... and NOT a chef, but I love to try different things in the kitchen.
I feel like a traitor to my Yankee-roots, but once I had a taste of the South, I fell in-love... so this is where I'm stayin'!
Clubs and bars are not my thing.
I enjoy amusement parks and unplanned long countryside drives with the occasional stop at mom & pop restaurants. I enjoy stopping near rivers, lakes and other peaceful scenes. Those are the best times to talk (and laugh & skip rocks & kiss… lol). Losing track of time is a great indicator of a good time. So, I hope to lose track of time with that special person.
I don’t like drama. I’m very civil with my ex-wife so there’s none there. A friendly relationship is a whole lot better than the bitter, hateful relationships common to divorces. More importantly, it’s a healthier atmosphere for my kids.
One day, I’ll run my own business. I have some great ideas for it and have started to pave that road. But, until God opens those doors, I'll stick to the rest of the workforce.
I'm looking for a down-to-earth, traditional Christian woman… someone not so into clubs/bars, isn't materialistic, genuine, patient, means-what-she-says—says-what-she-means type of woman.
I appreciate you taking your time to read my profile.
***UPDATE: I work the late swing shift. I sleep while normal people are wide awake. Heehee***
*** UPDATE #2: I'd rather not date a liberal. No... I don't "HATE" liberals, I just can't see eye-to-eye with them. We'd fight over EVERYTHING. We do need them though... it's a balance. God bless liberals. [that's almost the equivalent of a southern belle saying "God bless her heart"]
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
My first choice would be as simple as dinner in a nice restaurant. If not dinner, then it should be in a public place with an easy escape route (haha); something simple like bowling or putt-putt mini-golf (it’s been years!). It can’t be too loud where conversation becomes a yelling match. It can’t be where talking would be inappropriate (like a movie). No matter what we decide, it should be where we feel comfortable enough and conversation just flows naturally. At the end of the date, we’d both know – CLICK or NO CLICK. Click = another date. No click = we’d be honest and say so to each other... then be friends or move on.
