A little about me...
I enlisted in the Air Force right out of high school (during Viet Nam - yes, that long ago) to "escape" the midwest. I served 20+ years as a medic, then worked the next 18+ years in civilian hospitals and clinics in Montana (where, including military service, I lived for 17 years and loved it), Michigan and Massachusetts. After my divorce, I was contemplating moving back to Montana from Massachusetts but my dad (since deceased) got sick so I ended up back in Nebraska helping out. It's not as bad as I remember from my youth (or else my expectations changed) and I'm not looking to leave anytime soon (although the right woman and circumstances could change that). I'm loyal, honest, articulate with a definite sense of humor. I can carry on a conversation although the "honey, we need to talk thing" still scares me. I will ask for directions (if I happen to find myself lost, that is; I suppose it could happen). I can't cook (peanut butter and jelly on toast is my best hot meal). I don't mind holding hands or running my fingers through your hair (that PDA thing at Wal-Mart? they've agreed to let me return if I promise not to scare the kids in the shoe department again). I'm very patient and tolerant but I will NOT be walked on or over.
About the one I'm looking for...
I appreciate and respect women who are intelligent and not afraid to show it. Also, honest, upfront and open (don't just say what they think someone wants to hear). Good sense of humor but dont beat me over the head with "lol" or "lmao" every 12 seconds, especially if the conversation isn't all that funny. Personality is more important to me than looks (even Brad and Angelina are going to get old one day and if they have nothing to talk about, it's over). I know I'm not the most attractive guy on the site but I don't think you'd be too terribly embarrassed to be seen with me, either. I'd eventually like to find that one woman for me but in the meantime I am also content finding new friends. I'd like to find a woman who is capable and confident being herself, because I certainly plan to be (myself, that is). Being involved in the healthcare industry (military and civilian) most of my life, I respect and admire nurses and support staff who make sacrifices caring for others. I've dated many healthcare types but I'm sure there are other women just as professional and sacrificing out there. This seems like a good venue to discover them. No picture or complete profile = no response. I'm not a fan of anonymity (why are you hiding?).
I'd just like to add...
I've been known to go to chick flicks without whining too overly much. I am a fan of professional football (the NFL, not that soccer stuff) and have NFL Sunday Ticket on my DirecTV satellite system (go Steelers!). You can have the rest of the year but from September until the first week in February, I might not acknowledge you with more than "Don't stand in front of the TV, the pregame show is starting and put your clothes on, the guys will be here in a few minutes" or "See if the pizza guy is here yet and put some clothes on before you scare him". I do watch Dancing With the Stars, So You Think You Can Dance and American Idol (compliments of my daughter, who hid my remote when those shows all started - that's my story and I'm sticking to it). I have big, clumsy feet so if you like to dance, wear steel-toed shoes (meaning I'll at least give dancing a try). I will not climb K2 or run the Boston Marathon, but pretty much everything else is at least open for discussion. By the way, all you women who think guys on dating sites are potential serial killers - why do you want to walk on a beach at midnight alone with these guys? What's up with that? I tend to ignore flirts as generic and impersonal; send me a message
