Hello, and thank you for reading my self-introduction!
I'm an outgoing, energetic guy, who's creative, imaginative, adventurous, and I love to ask penetrating questions that get to the heart of something.
Right after college I went to Borneo as a student missionary, where I taught at a mission school about 50 miles into the jungle, then to northern Thailand to work in the refugee camps along the Cambodian border.
You will find me very easy to talk to, and tolerant of other people's opinions. I love to laugh, and we will probably crack each other up until the tears are rolling down our faces, and it's hard to catch our breath!
I was “raised right”, and know how to treat a woman. I'm considerate and affectionate, and I take ALL of my commitments very seriously. To me, the heart of a woman is a precious treasure, and you must know that your heart is safe with me. My role as a man is to protect you, and be your covering, and I need you to inspire me and lift me up, and fill my sails!
I don’t care what you have, where you've been, or where you’re from – I care about who you are, what is in your heart, and are we good for each other.
I am most compatible with a woman who is joyous, thankful, and playful, who loves to laugh, is patient, tender-hearted, and likes to have doors opened for her. I want to wrap my arms around my sweetheart and hold her while she sleeps... I want to think of you 1,000 times a day, without even realizing it! I want to be in a loving relationship that makes me want to shout from a mountaintop, "I'M THE LUCKIEST GUY IN THE WORLD!!!", and then, to look at you across the room and whisper softly to myself, "wow, I really am the luckiest guy in the world".
I am moved to tears every time I hear the Star-Spangled Banner, and Handel's Hallelujah Chorus. I ALWAYS cry when Ol' Yeller dies, and I can't watch the commercials on TV with the hungry children and the abused animals. I am one tough Texas hombre, but sometimes it's almost embarrassing how tender-hearted I am...
A few words that best describe me are INTENSE, PASSIONATE, SCRUPULOUS, a TRUE BELIEVER, and UNDAUNTED when fighting for a righteous cause. Sometimes I am the guy up on stage, and sometimes I am the one behind the scenes helping to pull everything together... I enjoy and appreciate both roles. I have a healthy amount of self-confidence, but am certainly not arrogant. I am a practicing SDA Christian, and my belief in GOD is the foundation of who I am as a man.
Just about everyone who knows me says I have a very charismatic personality, and if you pay any attention to things like the Myers-Briggs personality type indicator, my type is INFJ, but I'll let you figure out what type of guy you think I am.
My parents just celebrated their 61st wedding anniversary, and they love each other more today than ever before. I just love to listen to them talk to each other, such comfort, such respect, such patience and tenderness for each other... they are 84 and 80, and love just keeps blooming in their lives!
I believe that there will always be difficulties to overcome when two people make the choice to be together in a committed relationship. I don't like to argue, because we are on the same side, and should be able to solve any problem, no matter how difficult, without arguing about it. As there are no perfect people, there are no perfect relationships; however, there are WONDERFUL people, as well as WONDERFUL relationships, and I am fully prepared to put the time and energy into one!
I am a 7th generation Texan, and a direct descendant of a hero of the Alamo, so, if wild, passionate and independent men who are chivalrous to their core don't curl your toes and melt your heart, then we probably aren't a very good match!

I want - and need - to be with a Sabbath-keeper. I have missed that in the past, and I know in my heart of hearts that GOD will bring me together with the woman of my dreams! I am very willing to harmonize my life with that of my soul-mate, and that includes activities and leisure time.
I work a lot, but enjoy museums of all kinds, live music of all kinds (except rap!), and lectures - mainly science, history, religion and politics. I enjoy hiking in the woods and mountains, and get a real boost from volunteering.
I am an avid reader - again, science, history, religion - but much less politics...
I love to do home-improvement projects, and am very handy with tools of all kinds - and have about one of every tool!
Aerobics, Baseball, Basketball, Billiards / Pool, Bowling, Cycling, Martial arts, Swimming, Walking / Hiking, Weights / Machines, Yoga
This is the kind of stuff that we can talk about during a phone call or date.
I read at least one chapter in my Bible every morning, and read non-fiction in the evening - I love reading history and science.
