A little about me...
My passion has always been my family, and now my three kids, all grown, and of course my granddaughters, Betty and Rose..extended family, my faith in GOD and my country. I'm wrapping up a 31 year career as an Army Officer, something that is not just a job, but a part of who I am. I like the outdoors, hunting, fishing, spending time with nature. I enjoyed several sports when the body still permitted it, but now I settle for watching on TV or at the stadium/arena. I enjoy cooking, movies, photography, music, golf, and working out, and being with friends. I'm laid back, shy or quiet when first meeting (quiet most of the time), honest, loyal, patient (most of the time), tender, caring and compassionate. I pay attention to what's going on around me, in the world, and I thrive on intelligent, insightful conversation. My kids think I'm pretty cool and friends would describe me as a very nice, funny, loveable guy. I am all man, Italian, funny and nice to be around. I believe that the greatest gift GOD can bestow upon those who choose to accept it is humility. And HE reminds me each day that I need to go get back in line. I'm rugged, but soft. I love to laugh and to cuddle, and I can laugh at myself, which is good because I make mistakes.
About the one I'm looking for...
Turn-ons: Intelligent, confident, good-looking, fun-loving, loyal, kind, caring, tender, compassionate, spiritual. cite things make you smile, sense of humor, passionate looks, sexy glances.
Turn-offs: Trying to look, act, dress, be, someone you are not; knows everything and needs to be in control; dog or cat crazy (I love and have always had pets, but there are limits); deception and dishonesty; shopping (I mean it's fine as long as I don't have to go); mean people; angry people; negative people; pessimistic people.
I'd just like to add...
I'm looking for someone to share time with, talk to, laugh with; it may develop into something else, but I'm in no rush.
