I am hope you are doing fine today, sorry for not writing to you as soon as possible,I guess i would start with my name,which is Gilbert O'brain. My mom an English lady from UK (London) and my dad an American(California) so that gives me a dual citizenship. When mom was with us she served as a Head Teacher and retired doing so with joy while dad was in the Medical Field,but being so close to dad most times made me chose his path of steps. I am a Surgeon by profession and in charge of the medical team in the southern Regiment in Aleppo (Syria). I am a commission Officer and I must add that i am a senior medical staff in the Military team deployed to Syria. (NATO and UN).
I am currently stationed in Syria (Damascus),
This is my Second deployment to Damascus and I have already spent 7 months in Libya before this ,My First Mission to Libya was last 2 years ago.
I am and have been single for almost a decade now.. I lost my wife and baby girl in a tragic car accident which had been the worst experience for me after dad died and have left me single ever since.But sometimes as well,I figured probably country needed me more,but i think its about time I step it up and see what fate has in stock for me. I'm preparing for retirement in 4 to 5 weeks time(unconfirmed date) after which I will be back home to the States . I lived 60% of my life in Secaucus NJ and after dad left i decided to sell the old house and relocated to C.A Burbank about 3 years ago for a change of environment. I am most of the time found there with my adopted son and the few friends i cherish but that is when am not working , all I have now is my adopted son whom i miss and love so much, but he is also currently in the UK, he is in a soccer academy .
I consider myself shy but i have a very great sense of humor, trust worthy, genuine and i am looking for a like-minded person to build a relationship with and spend the rest of my life with . Someone i can love and cherish and call mine. I'm a romantic, open minded, optimistic person and i think it's not fun having fun alone. I like to swim, bike around town on my Harley, play tennis and golf, go to the stadium to catch a professional sporting event or to the movies. I love to travel, fish, camp and all the outdoors offers but as you know all that is best enjoyed with someone special that you love,I am now looking for a woman to call my own, spoil and treat like a queen . I will be home in a few weeks time. Actually,communication from here is very limited but never to worry my lady,I will be very happy to stay in touch as we build a connection prior to my home coming ..I hope you have consideration for my location at the moment.
I am concluding this letter here but please remember that I'm serious about my words. here you are with my yahoo messenger id firstname.lastname@example.org
, kindly add me on your buddy list so we can start chatting right away, I am usually online at 8 am and 9 pm American time, I really don't know if you can make it online by then but for now, I will be waiting for your reply and will also be waiting for your buddy request to appear on my side. I have attached a photo of me so you will know who you are talking to. I am really praying that my current location wouldn't come as a turn off to you because I'll be coming home soon, and my heart will be very sad if I'm ignored due to the distance .
Please note that i am an open book you can ask any question and I'll be more than glad to answer
Take very good care of yourself and have a blessed day.
With Love and Respect,
