More recently I got back from Managing the Lightning in a Bottle Festival. Check the link in the LA Times to read more about it... http://www.latimes.com/theguide/events-and-festivals/la-et-guidefeature26-20110526,0,6463886.story
I just got back from a life changing trip in Haiti! (last year, after the quake)
I just started this and will fluff this out as time goes on... :-)
I'm spiritual, not religious, I do not believe in forcing my views on other people. I believe in the "Golden Rule" living a life as Jesus did helping the "untouchables" both locally and globally. Helping those that society would rather put out of our misery.
I'm a boat captain but I also just finished nursing school and am waiting to take my state boards. I'm very caring, genuine, down to earth, thoughtful, intelligent but am by no means a "metro OC" guy. As a boat captain you have to be able to fix all the system on the boat and deal with any emergency's. I've also worked as a trauma tech for 8 years. All this experience with high stress, intense emergency situations has trained me to be cool, calm and collected. It's also made me a believer in the 7P's if you dont know what the 7P's are just ask, if you do kudos to you :-)
I'm not looking to rush out and get married tomorrow. I am looking for a long term that may eventually lead to that. I'm over the dating scene and party scene at this point. I'd like to meet a girly girl who can also rough it. someone who is just as comfortable putting on a LBD and going to a social event as they are camping or sailing.
I love family and friends, I had an amazing Thanksgiving! Its my favorite holiday and a multi-day event for my family. We even got some snow on the last day.
Movies: Princess Bride, Top Gun, Tombstone, Master and Commander, Matrix, Dumb and dumber, Wedding crashers, new Star Trek movie...
Biggest pet peeves: flakiness and liars oh and "OC" chicks...
Books: 1984, all of Douglass Adams, CS Lewis, Purpose driven life, Black Holes and Baby Universes, Davinci code, West Marine catalog...
update: I wish I could right click and rotate peoples sideways pictures for them...lol. Is it really thattt hard to do before you upload the pic?
update #2: Under Physical Description "athletic" is supposed to describe something tangible and not a state of mind...lol
“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending."
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
So many options... I like coming up with unique ideas. I'm down for anything from beach cruising, hiking, dinner, sushi, lunch, taking a tour of something, Disneyland or just pizza, blockbuster night and cuddles on the couch.
Another update: if I click the meet me button or favorite you without sending a message then it means I'm on my phone and would like to talk later.
I've noticed a lot of people wanting to go to "coffee"... boooo to coffee. It seems like such a set up to fail from the get go. I study at coffee shops, not date there. I think dates should be somewhat exciting otherwise whats the point. Besides, why pay 5 bucks for a pumpkin spice latte when I can buy a happy hour beer for $3. Which one makes more sense...lol. If you wanna go to coffee I've got some caffeine patches for your caffeine withdrawals :-)
