First off, I was probably born in the wrong time period. What else? I'm funny, loyal, very romantic, unique, driven, goal-oriented, future-focused, sarcastic, quirky, intellectual, mature, philosophical, opinionated, well-mannered and yet a goofball, outgoing when it is needed, politically incorrect, and very politically conservative. I think that about sums me up.
I'm a US Marine and student. Now that I have completed my second deployment, I am continuing with school. By next fall I will be working towards a Masters and maybe a MBA (location unknown)and starting my career outside of the military (somewhere in the northeast). Yes, a bit late in my life, but that's what being in the military does.
My interests are wide-ranging, but I'm especially interested in financial matters, economics, philosophy, politics, cars, current events, and I have recently taken a great interest in photography. I can spend hours on end talking about politics, life issues, social issues, philosophy, you name it. I prefer cold weather to hot (only if there is snow), and have developed a slight addiction to skiing, even though I am a beginner. I tend to talk and write in stream-of-conscience style, and by the end of any lengthy conversation I'll probably have covered at least twenty topics. I love traveling, and have done quite a bit so far with the military, and want to continue expanding my list of countries visited. I’m also very active, especially when it comes to Crossfit, running, hiking, and sometimes horseback riding. I prefer eating healthy, with the occasional exception (I am obsessed with chocolate, mangoes, and eggplant. Not necessarily mixed together). I also have no tattoos, and completed skipped the drug phase (never tried any of them, and never will). I do like following sports, and have my favorite teams, but I don't make that my number one interest. I do, however, love following politics, and will almost always have an opinion about most current events. I also read quite a bit, as my bookcase will testify, if it doesn’t collapse on me first.
Judaism is very important to me. It should also be equally as important to the other person. I was raised somewhat old-school when it comes to relationships and marriage. I believe that sex, while still extremely important, is best left for marriage and I'm not interested in short-term relationships, "playing the field", or partying my life away. Finding that special someone is very important to me. I am a bit of a hopeless romantic and love the little things and romantic gestures that make a relationship special. I don't take relationships lightly, regard them as if they are just another hassle in life, or throw them away just because they supposedly interfere with my career, life, etc.
