I am a professional wildland firefighter and EMT working in the western United States each summer. I have worked for elite Type 1 Hotshot crews for four years, and I plan to apply for the Smokejumpers soon. I am very dedicated to my career and to caring for my two young children.
Two years ago, my wife left me because she said she no longer wanted to be a wife and mother.
I am looking for a woman who is kind, loyal, and loving, and who enjoys the simple things in life as much as the exciting things.
I am serious about relationships, so I am willing to travel to another country to meet a woman in person. But I would like to be reasonably confident that the woman I'm meeting is the one I would like to marry! So I would like to spend lots of time in emails or chats in getting to know each other.
Reading, writing, outdoor activities, running, hiking, hunting, piano, music, metalworking, art, watercolors, history.
I keep myself in very good shape for my career. I run long distances and do a lot of core and upper body workouts.
I have a deep love of nature, and I love taking walks in the forest or hiking in the mountains. I even love going walking at night!
I am the father of two beautiful young daughters. I love them more than anything and I want to give them the best in this life.
Finally, I am a Christian man. My faith in God is a serious part of my life, and I hope my future partner will share my belief.
I am strong and dedicated to my beliefs, but I am very empathetic to others. I am a great listener and I love a good conversation.
I really appreciate deep friendships. I am extremely loyal to my family and my close friends.
I treat women with respect and kindness. If you are my girl, I will always make sure you feel protected and loved.
I have experienced some very harsh betrayals in my life, and I feel I have learned a lot from these. I am not interested in a short-term relationship. My greatest desire in life is to be a husband and a father in a happy, close family.
I enjoy my life. I like excitement and adventure, but not every single day... adventures are like spices; too much can be overpowering!
I am relaxed and confident and I'm not afraid to try new things or meet new people. I have a calm approach to most things in life and I don't lose my temper easily. I don't get scared easily and try to keep a positive attitude.
I have no problem being a leader and I feel confident taking the initiative, but I also don't mind when others step up to lead. I know how to be a good follower when it is appropriate.
I know how to be a good lover, and I I don't play games. I believe long-lasting relationships are built on honesty and respect.
On the Myers Briggs scale, I am an INFP.
