For the most part, I am an easy going, mellow guy who likes to have fun. Rarely do I stress over anything as I have come to realize that most things are beyond my control. I am a realist who looks at situations for what they are and takes things as they come. Instead of trying to find what is positive and/or negative I resolve issues by understanding them and most importantly respecting them. I believe that makes me a better problem solver. For the most part, I am a planner who would rather prevent a potential issue than resolve one. I love friendly debates! I am a single dad (15 Years and counting) of a beautiful college freshman. She is my life! In my spare time, I like to run, watch football and write screen plays.
I spent 19 years in the military and picked up some pretty good habits along my journey. With that said, I have also picked up some that I have worked hard to shed as they sometimes do not integrate well with civilian life. I serve as a strategic operations analyst for the United States Army.
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice, from Syracuse University and a Master Degree in Political Science, from Campbell University.
To most I am considered difficult. My guess is that this is mainly due to my unwillingness to compromise alone. For the record, I do believe in compromise however, it must be mutual otherwise it becomes abuse. I am committed to anything that I do and dedicated to all of my commitments.
My ideal woman would be someone with a fine edge that will not dull at the first touch of resistance. Someone who would rather admit ignorance and ask a question, rather than one who out of pride will blunder blindly forward. She is her own woman and respects that I am my own man.
Throughout my short time here, I have read many profiles where women speak of looking for a “real man, who knows how to treat a woman.” This statement creates confusion for me as I cannot truly figure out how a man could know how to treat a woman. Let me explain… In my experience, every woman requires something different and unique. Each require different heights, sizes, shapes, looks, personalities, etc. Therefore, I intentionally forgo the blanket treatment of a woman and elect a more specific approach, based on her need. In addition, those needs have to be taught by one individual to another and given time to develop in order to be effective. It unrealistic and irresponsible to expect someone to “Just Know how to treat a woman,” but it is wise to expect someone to know how to treat you as a woman, once they have learned your needs and desires.
I live by a few basic rules:
“Know yourself, even if others disagree with who you are.”
“Integrity violations are choices, not mistakes.”
“Never stress a decision that someone has to make.”
"The primary asset in life is opportunity, don't waste it!"
