I am Matthew and I am currently an enlisted soldier out of the 82nd at Fort Bragg, NC. Like many people the online thing is new for me so just think of me as the new kid.
I am presently working towards Intel opportunities outside of the Army, a few years from now, and am focused on school in the meantime. The Army has a knack for getting in the way of most personal goals these days but when it comes to church, school, diet and exercise I put up a good fight.
I am very passionate about life and enjoy the fine print of good living. I find that more and more I am moved and inspired by the simple things we often overlook. I love to sit and talk. I like to think things through but am quick to take action. I believe that work should generally be busy and productive and that home should be a warm and stress free environment. I've dated some people who aren't interested in having children so let me be very clear I am extremely family oriented and pine for kiddos.
The church is a major part of who I am and molds the type of man I want to mature into. I need someone who is on board with being a committed member of the church and who feels strongly about doing the right thing. I’m far from perfection so I need someone who can not only be my best friend but can patiently grow with me towards the same goals.
The Army certainly keeps me active but on my own time I particularly enjoy running. I ran my first marathon earlier this year and really enjoyed the challenge. I am looking for someone who is also active and self-motivated.
Nutrition is becoming more and more important to me as the years press on. I love to bake, blend, juice you name it but I also still have a soft spot in my heart for places like Chipotle and Texas Roadhouse. I really enjoy cooking and discovering new ways to be healthier so finding someone who appreciates good health and moderation is critical.
As a side note I thought that it might be interesting to add my results to several pop culture psych tests in case anyone else puts any stock into that sort of thing. Here’s the super condensed version: Color Code – B and A, Love Languages – Physical Touch and Quality Time, and the Jung Typology test INFJ.
This photo is from March but more are on the way.
Thanks for taking a peek,
