The one thing I am passionate about...
I love the outdoors, but I am not crazy about backpacking. I enjoy time appreciating God's creation. I love to read and talk to people about what I have read. When I have people to cook for I create some great dishes. My faith is very important to me. I am still learning a lot about it and myself. I like sharing it with others, but I also keep it close my heart as it is a very personal thing to me.
I typically spend my leisure time
I am an avid swimmer. I swam for most of my life and even in college. I am currently attending martial arts classes in 2 styles and am getting closer to my black belts in both. I love my volunteer work with a few of my social groups. There is nothing like brightening a sick kids face. I generally like being active, but I can also enjoy a quiet time with a book.
The most influential person in my life has been
Honestly is so important in a relationship. It along with trust, being able to truly communicate what each person needs and then being willing to compromise towards each other are the main qualities I look for in a person.
The first thing people notice about me
My friends describe me as very friendly and that I truly care about what everyone has to say. I may not agree with everything said, but I will respectfully listen to the other person's opinion. I am willing to speak my mind without being a jerk about it. They describe me as being very loyal and willing to assist them when they ask me for help. However, sometimes i help before they ask and I have to wait for them to do so.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I honestly read around 2-3 books at a time. I am currently reading several on Freemasonry, the Templar's, and fiction stories. I like anything by C.S. Lewis, arthur conan doyle, J.R. Tokin, local people, bios from a few famous people including Mr. Fred Rogers.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My Family
- A warm home with my rescue pup
- My health along with my job I enjoy
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
i am a genuine southern gentleman. I know many out there try to act this way and are false. I am who I am and act the same regardless of who I am being a gentleman towards. i know with a lot of the types of guys out there this can be hard to accepted as believable. But I am who I am and people that take the time to get to know me learn this fact about me.
Friends Describe me as
Good listener, Intelligent, Rational, Spiritual
A little more about me
I'm not sure what else to add here. So, message me and we can talk more and learn about each other. Oh one thing I love telling old folk tales and attending story telling events/ get togethers. There is something about sharing the imagery of these and seeing the wonder in the listeners.
