If you have a problem with honesty please dont contact me. I have no tolerance for being lied to. I'm very honest and appreciate the same in return.
I don't expect anyone to read this, but if you would like some insight about me, it's a good place to start.
I was once asked 'Why won't an aquarian female call me or contact me? She only responds once I make contact with her.' My response was, 'I can only speak for myself, but I don't usually make contact because I don't want to be a bother. I figure if someone wants to talk to me, they will.' This is how I am about most contact. If I do make contact, I have made that conscious decision because I was thinking about you. Don't view that lightly because it's not in my nature to do it.
Live harder, love more deeply, appreciate more, complain less, give more of yourself, cherish your friends if you want them to cherish you, don't settle for anything less than you deserve, experience everything once, breathe deeply, smell life, and don't waste one more second and start living for your happiness. No one else will.
I am working on several degrees-Aeronautics is one of them. Certified diver, rated pilot, Iraq war vet, I've worked with Heroes. Aviation is my passion. I love music, anything involving water & sun, doing new things, seeing new places. I enjoy relaxed environments.
Yes, I do smile. The sun is out and it's time to add the sun kissed look of summer to my skin. I enjoy the outdoors especially if it involves water to help stay cool. Not much for the cold weather though. I like traveling, tasting new foods, sushi, seeing new things. If I had a choice of how to spend my money, on an experience or on an item, I'd chose the experience because items seem to find their way into the garbage eventually. An experience is forever.
Morals, ethics, loyalty, honesty, all seem to be dwindling as time passes. It's a shame because they are important. I have a high set of standards and I definitely am too old to settle with anything less than what I deserve. I would rather be single indefinitely than to be unhappy or settle. I have flaws like everyone, but the idea is to find that person who doesn't care about or notice the flaws. It is difficult to find someone that just gets me.
Having seen the things I have seen and experienced in life, I think I have the ability to love more intensely than the normal person. After you watch the essence of a person leave their body you tend to see things differently. I have the ability to love someone absolutely with every fiber of my being, but I deserve that in return. I don't want to be taken for granted, lied to, cheated on, or treated poorly. I don't care what someone does for a living just as long as they do something. I have absolutely no tolerance for drugs and I won't date a smoker.
I'm big on loyalty and honesty. I've done the army gig. I've deployed. I refuse to argue. There is just so much that isn't important, definitely not worth arguing about. I don't talk about hair or makeup. I may be able to have conversations about mechanical things or aerodynamics. I have an easy time relating to people, but have a very low tolerance for stupidity. I am not a jealous person and I refuse to deal with jealousy.
First impressions are usually based on appearance. Although this seems unfair, we are a culture based on our vanity and strive for beauty. With that being said... I will not reply to anyone looking like they are from the ghetto. I will not respond to anyone wearing a flat billed hat, drooping pants, boxers hanging out or doing some stupid garbage with their hands. If that's what standard you have in your life, then I don't need you anywhere in mine. I also won't reply to anyone that looks unkept, a scraggly long beard or scraggly long hair. I just prefer what I prefer.
I'll add more later. I'm currently trying to watch "Casino". De Niro is always entertaining.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I'm pretty open to doing most anything. I like new experiences. Nothing uptight or formal because I like feeling comfortable and relaxed and meeting new people can already be a tense situation. I'm pretty flexible usually go with the flow.
