Salt Lake City,
More About MeI joined the Army a little late in my life because of 9/11. It wasn't an urge or a feeling that sent me to the recruiters office. It was a calling. I spent 10 years serving my country including four combat tours in Iraq. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. Unfortunately I was diagnosed with diabetes I was unable to continue my career path and was forced into a medical retirement. I've had a different chapter in life open up to me. Now I'm looking for someone to sure this life with me. I'm a father to the most beautiful and awesome 15 year old daughter on the planet. I don't know what I do with my life if I didn't have her. She is what's kept me grounded. Now I need someone else. Someone to be my partner and my friend. I'm looking for my soulmate. If you're reading this there's a good chance you may be her. So, please don't hesitate.... just let me know if you're her.... and we'll go from there.
Hobbies / Interests / ActivitiesI know this sounds pretty nerdy....but I love to surf the Internet. I'm not exactly a computer geek per se, but I am pretty good with computers and enjoy learning new things everyday. I'm also a big fan of Texas Holdem. I used to play quite a bit but have tapered off a lot recently. I still like to go play at a club or even Wendover every once in awhile.
Political AffiliationI do not claim to be affiliated with any political party. I vote on the merit of the person who is running for office. As long as it is not Sarah Palin... I'm not sure she can run a hairdryer correctly.
Who I Would Like to MeetI think I seek what every man seeks.... The perfect woman. Every man has an idea of what that might be....but we never know until we have her by our side. I love to laugh and have a good time at most everything I do no matter if its unpleasant. I've seen enough Missouri in this world to last a lifetime. There is never anything in this world so bad that you can't find in it a little humor or fun. At this point I'm open to a lot of options. A long term relationship would probably be ideal, but let's face it, not everyone is looking for that. We all have to start somewhere so I'm open to dating...as in short term relationship, fling or whatever you want to call it..... it's all about investing time. I guess you never find what you're looking for unless you put yourself out there in many different ways.
Favorite MusicI'm actually open to all kinds of music. I listen to a lot of alternative rock, classic alternative rock, and classic rock
Favorite TV ShowsI used to really like Two and a half Men....but now that Charlie Sheen is gone it's just not funny anymore. I don't really watch a lot of TV nowadays. I'd rather be out doing something.
Favorite MoviesI like comedies or action/ adventure.
Favorite BooksI just read in the newspaper about someone in Florida winning the 600 million dollar Powerball lottery. How would it be??? I could think of a few things to do with that kind of cash!!
Where You Were RaisedSalt Lake City Utah
Others NoticeMy eyes, my smile, and my ass.
Favorite PlacesWell I've been all over the world throughout my Army career so high have a wide variety of experiences in all kinds of places. I have to say I've had a really fun time in Mexico and California, but overall I have to say I really liked Ireland. it rained the entire time I was there but I can't remember ever having that much fun!
Friday or Saturday Nights IIt varies... Sometimes I like to go out to the clubs and sometimes I like to hang out with my daughter or just kick back at home and watch a movie. Then I have those impromptu trips to Wendover.... It doesn't happen very often but sometimes I get the urge and just go!! LOL
Life GoalsIf it all ended today, I'd have to say that I've already led a pretty fulfilling life. I've traveled the world and seen a lot of great things, a lot of beautiful things, and a lot of things that I've really appreciated. I've also seen some pretty horrific things and been in some pretty tough situations. Those bad days we're probably the most fulfilling days of my life. those were the days I was reaching out to help someone else. Reaching out to help someone else in need is the most fulfilling and gratifying feeling you could ever experience.
