"I am driven by two main philosophies. Know more about the world than I knew yesterday and lessen the suffering of others. You'd be surprised how far that gets you." -Neil deGrasse Tyson
The profile name is a play on my job and my last name. And I am a paid member. If I wasn't serious, I wouldn't be here.
I'm not interested in hook-ups, so if that's what you're here for keep moving. Sounds strange when a guy says it, doesn't it?
I am honest to a fault. I'm not very good at BS. I don't play games with other people as pawns and I have a low tolerance for those that do.
We are all judgmental. If we did not judge others we would hang out with, date, and marry just anyone. I am honest enough to say I am judgmental quite simply because I would like to spend my time in the company of those I enjoy. I give everyone the chance to be a decent human being and will treat them as such until they prove to not be a decent human being.
I am a submariner for the US Navy, trained as an electrician. So long as I am attached to a sea-going command, this means that I disappear for weeks to months at a time.
I travel for work every few years by moving. I travel for fun when I feel inclined and have time. Day trips on weekends. Longer trips while on leave. All the photos above are taken by me from places I've been. And on shorter trips I tend to take the car I'm pictured with. I enjoy the Camaro and I do enter shows if they support a good charity, but I also drive it often. It is not strictly a show car and I have a more sensible daily driver.
I have a wide range of interests. Sports is not one of them. I will not ignore you on weekends because a game is on. I play electronic games, but not at the expense of spending time with someone important.
I do not have children. I do not want them - either my own or by someone else who had them in a previous relationship. That is one of very few instant dealbreakers. I love my nieces and nephew, and do pretty well dealing with little ones, but I do not want my own.
During the week I don't go out much because I usually have to get up early morning for work. Weekends vary, but I don't do bars or clubs. I prefer flavor to effect so I've not much use for alcohol except for cooking. I'll do a pub or quieter if they have good food, and maybe at a microbrewery I'll sample what they make, but I've only been drunk twice and find I enjoy things more when I am sober.
For the most part what I do in my leisure time probably seems pretty reserved and sedate. But I am ok with relaxation and taking things easy. Keep in mind that on a regular basis I lock myself in a steel tube with weapons of mass destruction and go underwater for long periods of time in a high stress environment. How much more excitement and potential disaster does a person really need?
I'm not here because I cannot live being single. I'm here because life is better with the right company.
I'm looking for someone child-free who wants to stay that way.
Someone who knows the value of relaxation and not having to have a constant adrenaline rush to feel alive.
Someone who knows the value of time spent together because of how much time work will keep us apart.
Someone who can wake up in the morning and be onboard with a day trip that has no prior planning to it.
Someone who likes being appreciated for who they are without thinking they have to doll up just to leave the house or act like they were bred just to be a wife.
Someone who can be as honest, faithful, and loyal as I am to them.
And it wouldn't hurt to enjoy some of the same shows and movies.
Questions? Just ask. But keep in mind I answer honestly.
