Before I introduce myself, I am compelled to share the following first:
Let it be known, that being male, does NOT mean I am driven solely by physical desires! I realize there are those of my fellow men who think solely in the physical sense and justify the stereotypical image most women have of a male, believing they have to be 'on guard' when getting to know a man. However, this does not adequately describe all males.
Please! We men are NOT all the same, anymore than all women are the same. Therefore, I would appreciate NOT being prejudged based on my gender. My career as an AF member in good standing and my willingness to be of service should tell you my focus is on serving others, NOT taking advantage of them!
Please do me a favour and move on to another man if you already think this way, or expect me to be this way. I won't be. If you are non-judgemental, would like to get to know me for who I am, then please do feel free to drop me a note. Thanks.
Now, having said that, allow me to introduce myself:
I am 28 years retired AF, active, solid and grounded, stable, kind, hoping to find someone who wouldn't mind being no. 01 In my life and would treat me the same.
My AF journey has taken me all over the world, some places more difficult than others, but has taught me the value of kindness, tolerance, patience and endurance, both physically and emotionally.
Presently I am a full time student retraining into a civilian career and planning on working with other veterans suffering from PTSD. If you're not sure what that is, please feel free to ask.
My life revolves around my children, service and for the time being, school.
However, I am not opposed to sharing my time with someone special and look forward to doing so.
I was born and raised in UT, but the AF is where I 'grew up.'
I'm not one for contention, I've seen my share of hate and killing while deployed in Iraq and these things are not of me. Kindness, patience, long suffering and unconditional love for my fellow man is key in finding joy in life.
I'm quiet spoken, very slow to anger, understanding, and kind. These things do not mean I'm weak, they mean I know who I am and how others are to be treated.
I have six children, all grown, three grandchildren, two boys and one girl, all are sweethearts and very loving.
Given my travels, I've seen some wonderful places, met some great people and when considering these things, I'm grateful for the life I've had so far, and look forward to sharing the remainder of my life with someone who is kind, loving, accepting, romantic, passionate, intelligent and willing to keep learning.
I'm not opposed to children, rather, I enjoy their sweet spirits and find much joy in helping them to succeed.
While deployed to Iraq, I was injured, but almost fully recovered now; still working on a few things. These experiences have given me a greater appreciation for life and I don't intend to waste one second on being anything less than the best human being I can be and finding the good in others.
For hobbies, I enjoy playing a variety of instruments, doing vocals, traveling, academics, aviation, camping, the mountains, etc. I'm up for a movie once in awhile also and dinner, or perhaps a walk. I also enjoy riding my cruiser.
If you have any specific questions, obviously I cannot put everything about me here, so please do ask.
Thanks for stopping by. :)
