Hi! I am my daughter's father, and my dog's owner and best friend. I have been a pediatric critical care nurse for the last two decades, a former paramedic, a former many other things. I love dogs, all animals actually. Spend most of my free time outdoors. My philosophy of life can be simplified to 1) try to live as long and as healthfully as possible, 2) try not to hurt anyone, and 3) try to have fun.
About the one I'm looking for: know you when I know. Intelligent, positive outlook, honest, trustworthy, are all important. Physically, you have to care about your health and your appearance. I have a wide range of physical "type" that I like, but, I do have to find you attractive.
You have to at least like dogs. Loving dogs would be better. Liking all other animals is a plus. Enjoying outdoor activites is a must. I do have a grown daughter, and children are my profession, so, kids are ok. And if we have no "spark", no "chemistry", I make a pretty good friend, too.
Oh, a couple things about me that may rule me out for you. Religion: I don't care what yours is. I have many Christian friends, Jewish friends, even a few Muslims. But I am an atheist. An atheist of Jewish heritage. I like living in a Judeo-Christian country, and never try to persuade anyone. If this rules me out, it's ok.
Guns: I have owned, and collected, guns, for many years, and have had a concealed weapons permit for decades. This scares some people. If so, have a nice day.
I am a vegetarian. It is for very personal reasons. I never EVER try to convince anyone to be the same. I have no problem being around people eating meat, and on special occasions, I eat meat, as well. And now you know.
