I'm a somewhat quiet, yet strong Former Marine, readjusting to the beauty of life. after a very tough life as a Marine, I am now taking the time to "Smell the roses". I spend a great deal of my time with my Daughter; Her perception of me, is terribly important. I consider myself to be an extremely honorable man, looking for friends first! Ladies, I hope you all can relate to how the word "love" is thrown around soooo casually. I believe in love at first sight; though I personally have yet to experience first hand. I feel emotions must be nurtured into a beautiful lasting relationship first! I want to spoil my woman... routinely shocking her with surprises of roses and get aways. I am an honorable man first so Please...Please, please, please... If you are expecting love and marriage right out of the gate...I'm not your guy! I'm a southern bred,opening-the-doo r for my woman kind of guy! Chivalry isn't dead, we still exist!!! Only young immature boys are intimidated by a strong independent woman...I'm not... I find it to be somewhat attractive; As long as she can remember she is to be soft, beautiful and just as devoted to her man. I love kids! I'm truly a kid at heart myself. Though not a big television sort of person, I enjoy the thought of growing together with my woman. I've spent a great deal of my life outside(as a Marine) is still love to work with my hands, bike ride, movies, and especially travel. I'm spontaneous and full of surprises! If you enjoy the kind of man who wants and enjoys giving you back and foot massages after a hard day of work...well you get the idea. I hope this helps with a little about me. Hopefully, I'm the sort of man a woman will find desirable.
