First and Foremost, I am commited to the military life. I have worked outside as a civilian, and I prefer it in the military!! If you can't deal with that, then I'm not your guy!!
I've been in the Army about a year, after being an EMT in Florida for the last few. I was tired of driving senior citizens to and from the nursing homes, and thought that there were medics in the war with families and children that needed to be home more than I did.
I work(ed) with children teaching them martial arts over the last 6 years and truely believe that children can be remarkable if they have the guidance and love that they need to be sucessful. Teaching children is something I will do til I die. Plus, where else can you make them cry and people pay you for it!! (just kidding)
While doing all that, for the last decade I was a club DJ all over the US. Florida, Indiana, Chicago, Cleveland, Georgia, South Carolina, so I have done my fair share of partying. I love the life, but man, I'd hate to be THAT guy who's 50 still going out there and hitting on the 20yr olds.
I enjoy sports, motorcycles, skydiving, taking long drives, and visiting places just to get away. Martial Arts are a true joy for me, and I am always willing to learn more.
I helped raise my niece and nephews for the last 7 or 8 years, and tried to be the father to them that I never had. I love my niece and nephews, but they are almost adults, so they don't "need" their uncle as much, so I am focusing on my needs now.
I love spending time with the one I care about, and love to listen to them tell me about their day. How crappy it was, how they got the good parking spot out front of the office, just hearing how they are doing allows me to feel connected to them.
I'm very outgoing and personable (total extrovert) and enjoy being part of the show (Not the STAR).
I enjoy walking with that special someone and kissing her on the cheek because she likes to know I still find her sexy no matter how long we're together. Seeing the light in her eyes as I surprise her with a rose, or that sparkle in them from across the table, will always melt my heart. Knowing that even though we just spent time together, she's missing me as much as I miss her. The smell of her perfume that stays on the jacket I let her wear when we're outdoors. I love all the things that love and romance offer...
But then there is the reality of life....
The sound of her yell, as she reams me for leaving the seat up!! The way she snores, and is still in denial of it 19yrs after marriage. The way she complains that no matter how many times I do it, that picture STILL isn't straight.
I am a true fan of love and romance, but you have to be realistic about life. Things aren't always going to be Roses, and if you think they will with "TRUE LOVE" then you may be looking for a long time....
I'm looking for a woman who wants to laugh AT me, WITH me, and BECAUSE of me. And one that won't get mad when I do the same!! Someone who doesn't need me around all the time, but really likes it when we are together.
I believe that 2 people are just that, 2 seperate people that come together into 1 relationship. Without their individuality, they lose who THEY are, and that doesn't appear to be healthy for either of them.
She should want me to be the best I can be, and support me with that, as I will support her. She should give her opinion, even when I don't ask for it. (As long as it's constructive)
She needs to be open and honest, and not just about what SHE wants to be open and honest about.
I've dated women that wanted it one sided, and that doesn't work for me, so if you think you can have a relationship with someone who is willing to put in everything he can (so long as you put in the same work and feeling) then I maybe the one you want. Drop me a line and we can talk about the future....
