The one thing I am passionate about...
I am really passionate about my belief in god, my relationship with my family & friends, fishing, gold prospecting, outdoors, shooting, hiking, camping & donating my time to others within the community. I need to emphasize that I stopped going to church when my boy died & while I am a firm believer in god & never stopped believing in him, I was mad at god for several years. I am passionate about my dog. She is my most loyal friend, so first & foremost, she is my loyal 4 legged girl friend. LoL. I should emphasize that because I have no children, being part of a family who has kids, It's something that I long for.
I typically spend my leisure time
I typically spend my leisure time fishing, hiking, off roading, exploring ghost towns, gold prospecting, gold panning, target shooting & fabricating (welding & machining projects), I enjoy camping on the beach a few times per year & I usually drive to the beach 5-6 times per year, for day trips. I like to camp in the mountains several times per year, where I can go hiking & fishing. Im sure theres more that I could list, but as I am retired, the list changes every year. I should point out that I attend concerts frequently & I get dressed up to attend a function within the performing arts, at least once a year
The most influential person in my life has been
I am looking for a person, who is strong in their beliefs & has conviction about whats inportant to them. Someone who Isnt afraid to try new things & has an open mind about life and all that life has to offer. I am looking for someone who has family values & not just the idea that they love their family. I mean someone who is close to their family & is open to the idea about being part of another person's family. I mean a person who will not be jelous of my famliy or the relationship that I have with them. I am looking for a person who has pride in their appearance. This doesnt mean super model, just someone who takes pride in who they are.
The first thing people notice about me
This is a hard question to answer, but if I had to list one of the first things that people notice about me; I am a tall & well proportioned man who carries himself well. My mother & friend' wives say that I am attractive & that I am the highlight of the room. Although I dont necessarily agree with this scenario, this is what I am told by friends & family.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The last book that I read was, the hobbit. I read this book during the time that the "Lord of the Rings Trilogy" was being produced. Even though "The Hobbit" was a very good movie, the book was far better.I regularly read the miners journal, that way I can keep up with corrupt & unconstitutional laws that affect our right to public lands. I know this is a bit old & arcane, unfortunately respecting our constitution & laws is very important to me & to future generations. If we dont preserve the positive things in our society, It's the children who will suffer later in life. I read other things too, but most of it is gold & hot rod magazines.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I am very thankful for god, as I have had experiences that have made me a believer.
- I am very thankful for my family. They have been there thru thick & thin
- In my opinion, my friends are the closest thing to family. My true friend list is very short
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I dont know how to answer this question. Once a person meets or knows me, I hide nothing from them, as I have no secrets that I need to keep. Although Im all outdoors during my personal time, I also enjoy dressing up for opera, theater. I enjoy movies, walking on the beach, mountains, the park, attending concerts, dancing at the bar, etc. (Although I rarely drink, Im not opposed to those who do). I do these added activities many times throughout the year, or as much as budgeting will allow. I understand that my profile indicates that I am all outdoors, but to those who know me, they understand theres a softer, more sophisticated side to me.
Friends Describe me as
Dependable, Generous, Genuine, Loyal
A little more about me
I am retired civil service (I was employed by the NAVY), I am prior military (NAVY) & served at the tail end of Desert Storm & I am very outdoors'y. I believe in family & true friends (true friends are far & few and between). I believe in a one on one relationship, unless its an agreed & communicated friendship with nothing expressed or implied, ie. , 2 friends going out & having a day of fun, say a trip to a mountain lake with family & friends. My profile will be expiring soon. Today is December 23, 2016. If interested, please feel free to contact me soon. Eharmony will not allow me to list my email address or phone number in my profile.
