The one thing I am passionate about...
I have a very strong passion for any and all things family oriented. I love everything about a family, the closeness, comradery, events and get-togethers. The military is just one more family that I have. Other than family, I'm very interested in movies and music. I have my favorite actors/actresses and I love any genre. As with music, I listen to anything from R&B to classical, but the piano is the most beautiful sounding unstrument to me. One of my goals is to be able to sit down at a piano and play for whomever.
I typically spend my leisure time
As I was growing up, my father had a pool table that we all used, with red velvet -- it was beautiful. I'd like to own my own pool table one day. When I'm reading or working on finances, school work etc... I'll listen to my music -- jazz, country, classical and neo-classical, rock n roll, R&B. Like any male, I play video games, regularly. There will be times when I don't play for months until a game I've been waiting for comes out. Ahh.. movies... I'll watch anything from Matrix, Spaceballs, Gone In 60 Seconds to Dirty Dancing. Last but not least, I'm a decent cook and love to try new dishes from scratch.
The most influential person in my life has been
A strong, mature, caring woman who'll always be there for me and know I will too. Also, someone who isn't materialistic. Must love Journey! =)
The first thing people notice about me
That I can be pretty distant from others. It'll be different once I find the one person I can open up to.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The Once and Future King -- I've always loved King Arthur stories about his life and his knights of the Round Table. The first part of the book was based on his childhood and it was actually made into a movie -- The Sword in the Stone. The book went into a lot more detail about his life and the family he grew up with was the exact opposite from the movie. I perfer any book over the movie because of the relationship you can have with the characters.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- A big loving family that's has their own unique problems.
- A very stable and comfortable career with perks.
- I'm not political, but I'm thankful for the freedom our government has given us to pursue one's goals and dreams.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That I don't like to see people hurt, emotionally. It's difficult for me to relate to immature individuals because there always joking and putting people down. That's something I could never handle especially if it was me. Over the years in the military you come to play along because life can't always be serious. Need to live for today, as they say. Also, I can be a very funny guy. I need to be comfortable around people before I can really open up to them.
Friends Describe me as
Dependable, Good listener, Perceptive, Quiet
A little more about me
Being with someone in the military is a huge commitment, and I fully understand what someone would go through when making that commitment with a military member. Other than that, I think it's only fair to let my matches know that I've never been with a woman or even had a relationship. During high school I've had my eyes on particular girls, been on a few dates but it never went anywhere. Since I joined the military, sex and relationships never seemed important anymore. I focused on my career, school and living conditions -- that's where my independence and selfishness comes into play.
