The one thing I am passionate about...
I am most passionate about animals. I cannot stand people who abuse them in any way shape or form. My pets are members of my family. I feel the same way about those who harm children. Anyone from an abusive or neglectful parent to the "animals" who would abduct and hurt them. I also enjoy riding my motorcycle, very much. It has a special meaning to me, considering my physical size. I love my music. The stuff I grew up on. The louder the better. Finally, there are certain TV shows I become "addicted" to. There is usually a very good looking actor involved.
I typically spend my leisure time
Motorcycle riding is my fair weather favorite. I like to travel, when I can, stay in nice hotels/motels when I can afford it and just plain have an adventure. I play the guitar, when I have one. I have the ability to listen to a song a few times and then play many of them. I love my rock and roll, country, and some other types of music. I is somewhat important to me that my partner share similar tastes is music. I love to watch my favorite TV shows and rent movies when they first come out as I refuse to pay the movie theater prices. And a quiet walk in a romantic place is always fun.
The most influential person in my life has been
I want someone who can be genuine. That encompasses many things that are important like honesty, loyalty, kind, and decent.
The first thing people notice about me
My intelligence, or so I've been told.
The last book I read and enjoyed
"Atlantis Found" by Clive Cussler. It was about adventures had by people working for an agency called NUMA, National Underwater and Marine Agency. They travel all over the world following clues found in archaeological sites. Everything from crystal skulls to extraterrestrial artifacts lead them to their final destination. As they encounter villains who seek to find the "treasure" for themselves they fall victim to setbacks but still manage to accurately decipher all of the messages. They find that Atlantis truly did exist and the fate of it's inhabitants after it's destruction. I get excited about archaeology and adventure.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- For the friends I DO have.
- The love given to my by my late parents.
- My ability to feel compassion for the helpless creatures of the world.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That I have been hurt, in the past, and will not take anymore b.s. because I've learned the hard way.

A little more about me
I'm not wealthy so if that's what you want, sorry. Who I am has taken 48 years to create. It is going to take me a while to break some of my bad habits. I haven't dated since high school so it kinda scares me. I would enjoy being taken out to a nice restaurant but, not a fancy one. I am easy to talk to and I usually tend to be very open, even with strangers. It actually scares me sometimes.
