I am a divorced father of four awesome kids, the oldest two adopted (my oldest son is now 19, so not really a 'kid'!). I would be happy to discuss my kiddos with anyone who is interested!
I adore them and try to be a great dad for them...they are paramount in my life.
I was married for 12 years. My ex-wife and I are civil and respectful to each other. Long separation, quick divorce...never thought it would happen to me, but it did, moving on!
In the words of Pablo Neruda: "Love is so short, forgetting is so long."
I will tell you whatever you wish to know about that...honestly.
I am active-duty Army and just got back from my fourth deployment...good times!
I get out in 2016 and will then start my nursing/P.A. career.
I am 'Jew-ish'...meaning that I am not even close to being orthodox.
I consider myself an agnostic free-thinker who still sees the value of a cultural tradition and ethics.
If I don't know the answer to some profound question, I will just say 'SCIENCE!'( in a basso-profundo voice).
I am active on the internet (i.e. blogging and entertainment), but not obsessed with it.
I love everything to do with mobile technology-tablets, phones, ultra-books, etc...however I love the outdoors (hiking, climbing, rappelling, running, and just exploring)and try to get out & about as much as possible.
I fell in love with Colorado when I lived there and can't wait to enjoy Washington state!
I read a lot...a lot. I consider myself to be pretty well-versed on topics that interest me and I am a 'conversationalist'.
I do not care for pro sports. I would rather play then watch. I also do not understand the desire for men to wear a shirt with another man's name on it...when I was in high school, this was what girls did with a guy they liked, except it was a letter jacket, etc. That being said, I have, and wear a classic Larry Bird jersey. So sue me.
I am a fauxtographer...I absolutely love photography. I sold my kit before I deployed, and now I wish I had not!
I was raised to have manners, but I have an irreverent sense of humor. I cannot be offended.
Confused yet? Sometimes I am too!
I have many tattoos and want more.
I am disease-free and I will stay that way!
I act my age...except for when I don't; in which case I act someone else's age, but I am not sure who's...
I guess my body 'type' could be considered athletic, but I figure I would play it safe and put 'average'. There is no six-pack, but there are no 'rolls' either.
I find that a good run with music is the best stress relief.
I try to keep myself fit. I do this for my job, myself, and of course we all want to look good naked!
I adhere to a vegan diet, though I do not require my significant other to be-I love to cook and am good at it!
I am not a big guy, but I am not small or weak either- so if you want a six foot dude, it isn't me!
I love caffeine. As of right now, that is not regulated by federal law via the BATF...for now!
I like a variety of music, though my musical 'home' would be with the early emo and post-punk bands of the 90's.
I categorize myself as a Libertarian/constitutionalist when it comes to politics. I will not force politixal talk on you; and I enjoy people who may disagree with me. I am, in other words, an adult about it.
I am a horrible, terrible dancer.
I am interesting, and interested in many things.
*The pics of me shirtless are there in the interest of full disclosure and honesty. I don't want to meet someone who has a different idea of what I look like because I only have close ups of my face, etc. I am not a big guy, nor am I a douche-bag who is full of himself...the photos are NOT there because I think I am something awesome!*
*ALSO...it seems as though the website shows me as online sometimes when I am not...*
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I would like to meet first, which would be pretty casual.
MY fun date would probably involve going to an open town-hall meeting in Seattle and arguing with city council until I was forcibly removed and/or tased by the police...but I am guided by the preference of the lady!
Also (this has been my brief but informative experience thus far with dating sites) kindly don't be a flake...thanks!
