The one thing I am passionate about...
I am a Southern Gentleman born with every disadvantage that life forces against a child. It was my Mother's Love, Strength and Prayers that delivered me to the place I am. I am a Combat Veteran of both the US Army & Navy of 14 years. My greatest gift in my life has been to be blessed to be the Father of ( 1 ) outstanding young man. I love my mother, serving my community and being a light in a world of darkness. I am nurturing and protective by my very nature; but more so for the Elderly, Woman and Children ( The Most Vulnerable Among Us).
I typically spend my leisure time
I enjoy personal and professional growth. I am blessed to be growing spiritually as well. I enjoy new places and experiences. I embrace new cultures, open-mindedness and frank and straight-forward conversations. I love being a Father and spending time with my family and friends. As often as I can I take a nice day trip on the weekends just to get away and have time to reflect on the many wonderful things within my life and those I have yet to discover! I enjoy exploring Nature as well as balancing Harmony and the Peace of Reflection!
The most influential person in my life has been
I seek the woman that will always to be mine. I am the sword and she is my shield. She protects my heart and I stand before her when life's storms come; firmly planted and unyielding.

I need a woman who love's fearlessly because she refuses to settle, drag things out and live a fearful life. We share both burden and blessings and our faith ensures that our strength will not fail.

A little more about me
Myers-Brigg: LOGISTICIAN (ISTJ-A). ISTJs are dependable through and through, and this trait is clearly expressed when it comes to their romantic relationships. Often representing the epitome of family values, people with the ISTJ personality type are comfortable with, and often even encourage traditional household and gender roles, and look to a family structure guided by clear expectations and honesty.
