The one thing I am passionate about...
Many things. I care most about being a good Christian, son, brother, uncle, and friend. I am also passionate about my education. I skipped college to join the Army after September 11th, and I have been working hard on my education over the last 18 months. I am also a dedicated community volunteer, and I do work with elderly or disabled veterans. I am also very passionate about my hobbies, of which I have many. I am a musician and love to play music, listen to music, and go to concerts. I have a decent guitar collection, as well as other instruments. I also love photography and have done some amateur film and music editing and recording.
I typically spend my leisure time
I was a musician as a kid, and even earned a full scholarship to major in music. I gave that up to join the military after 9/11, but I still love music. I love going to concerts, and I love finding time to practice playing whenever I can. I am also a sports fanatic. I go to every Boise State football game, and have for many years. On weekends my whole family gets together to watch football, we order pizza and wings, and have a blast. I really enjoy cooking and try to discover new recipes. I like to hang out with friends and bbq together, take road trips, and watch zombie and superhero movies.
The most influential person in my life has been
I am looking to meet some nice people, and make some new friends. I am certainly open to that friendship turning into something more. Most of my friends are married and have children now, so I would really like to meet some people that have time for me. I hope to find someone w/similar interests. Loyalty is probably the most important thing to me. I'm a very loyal friend and significant other. As long two people are loyal to eachother, I believe they can make it through any challenge. In my experience, when one person is unable to be loyal to their friends, family, and self, it usually ends up being an unhealthy relationship.
The first thing people notice about me
Usually its my truck. I'm kind of into big classic trucks. And when I was 20 that was fine, I liked getting the attention from girls. But as I grew older, I started to realize that if thats the first thing a girl notices, I should probably not waste my time. The other thing a lot of people notice is that I am often very quiet. It's not that I have nothing to say, just that there is always more to learn from listening than from talking.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith. It was such a cool idea, and researched so well. I bought Pride Pejudice and Zombies by the same author, and his newest book about the 3 wise men from the Bible. I also enjoy comic books. I have quite a collection. My favorite kinds of books are non-fiction, especially military books like Black Hawk Down, and The Three Wars of Roy Benavidez. My favorite book I have read recently was The Faith of the American Soldier, by Stephen Mansfield. It is a good book about religion in the military and over seas in combat. Something I have experienced first hand.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- The people that fight for our country
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
While I am very quiet at first, I wish people would notice that I'm actually very friendly. Sometimes when I meet new people they mistake my quietness for arogance, and thats just not even true.
Friends Describe me as
Dependable, Funny, Genuine, Loyal
A little more about me
I am looking for somebody to have fun with. Be friends with. If something blossoms into a romantic relationship, and a serious relationship, that would be great! I've seen all of my friends get married and have kids, and they dont have time for me anymore. So I would really like to meet some people who are still single and have time to go to a midnight movie, or a spontaneous trip to Yellowstone or something cool. So even if we dont have romantic feelings, maybe we can be friends!
