Originally from the Boston area, I am now enjoying life here in Utah. I came here for business reasons but have discovered this place suits me just fine.
My time in the Army gave me many incredible experiences around the world. While I won’t go so far as to say I am well-traveled (that just sounds too polished and stuffy), I do have a few extra pages in my passport that prove I am not your average homebody. I do have a sense of adventure and know when to use it.
When we first meet, you might assume, based upon the tattoos, that I am a bit rough around the edges, a real “man among men,” if you will. Well, don’t waiver from that initial conclusion. It is correct. However, on the inside, I am really a nice guy with a gentle heart, the kind who can prove to you that chivalry is not dead yet. In fact, I can show you that it is not even on life support. (Thanks to the influence of my mom and sister, I have fully grasped the lost art of how to respectfully treat a lady. I may not always be perfect, so feel free to give me some constructive criticism in this regard. I am just a work in progress.)
Even kids aren’t afraid of the rough exterior. My amazing three-year-old son brings out the best in me and I promise that if you have any kids of your own, they will feel just as special.
On most days, I am an easy-going, laid-back kind of guy. I prefer to roll with the steady flow of things instead of paddling like mad against them. I don’t do drama – yours or mine – and laughter is a key part of my day. I apologize in advance for any sarcasm you might detect, but it’s always in good fun. (Maybe not always in good taste, but always fun.)
I am patient, too. If you have something on your mind, spill it. I am a well-trained listener and won’t distract myself with my cell phone or other mobile applications while you are talking. You’ve got my full attention. I owe you that much.
The proverbial bad boy (more in appearances than in spirit), I tend to gravitate towards women who have that decided edge about them. Aggressive? Yes, but not in a demeaning way. More like a “confident, speak her mind and enjoy the results” kind of way. She says what she means and means what she says, but she would never do so to intentionally undermine or demean someone. For her, kindness is an instinct.
In short, I just hope to meet a like-minded woman who is bent on seizing the moment and pursuing new and exciting experiences. When opportunity knocks, you won’t hear me complain about the noise.
