Well, here it goes. I just finished a 5 year tour as a United States Marine. I was stationed in Japan for almost 4 years, and was lucky enough to get to do a ton of traveling a an air crewman in the western Pacific. Coming back to San Diego (America even) after being gone for 4 years and living in a foreign country with a job that entailed me to be gone all the time wasn't the best environment for starting relationships or maintaining them. Now that I'm back, I figured why not give Match a try?
I like to think my friends would describe me as dependable and honest. I say what I mean and do what I say I'm going to do. I've got an old school mentality but am still a child of the 90's. My folks brought me up to hold the door open for a lady, address my elders as "Sir" or "Ma'am." I like to indulge my delusions of being a "renaissance man" having interests in almost everything ender the sun, kind of a jack of all trades - master of none. My MAN card is up-to-date: I can cook a nice dinner either on the stove or grill, rebuild an engine, fix your computer, and paint a house. Power tools do not scare me.
I'm pretty passionate about history, current events, economics, and politics. I do have some nerd and geek tendencies, but usually can keep these suppressed pretty well. In the end, I try to not take myself too seriously and sometimes when life is dealing some bad hands, you just got to go with it.
The kind of woman I am looking for is someone who is comfortable in their own skin. She is genuine, outgoing, and passionate when it comes to enjoying life. She has to be intelligent and aware of the world around her...I want to be able to share ideas and opinions, and not just 21st century pop trivia.
Also, she needs to be able to "hang with the boys" and not be too prissy, but she also has to be able to be a lady. Someone who is open to being outdoors and traveling to other countries is a must.
