Where do I start! I am new here so I will very much appreciate it if you take a chance to look at my profile to see if we have something in common and can get to know each other. I will also like to use this opportunity to tell you a bit about me. I am a very kind giving and friendly person, outgoing, young at heart and love to have a laugh. I am passionate about trying to better myself in all ways, I believe being honest and a positive attitude gets me much further in life. I am not into playing games and I don’t like time wasters and people who play with people’s emotions. I would love to meet that special someone but believe friendship is a very important part of any relationship, Chatting and getting to know someone else is harmless if done with honesty and decency, which is what I give and expect. I love traveling and have been around the world with the intention of more traveling. Another passion of mine is cooking, I love cooking and I don't mean to boast but I am a pretty good cook and I enjoy so much the look on people’s faces after the first bite lol, so I am pretty good at dinner parties and enjoy mixing with people and learning from them .I also enjoy going out to nice restaurants .I am a good listener with a warm personality and I believe in treating people how I like to be treated. To me life is about celebration. Good food and wine, great company, the outdoors, exploring and traveling and essentially learning and growing as a person. Keeping fit and remaining positive are also important to me. I work hard; love my job and my son. I am affectionate, passionate, open minded, sensitive and loyal. Always loyal to those I love. I won't lie or pretend to be someone I am not. I am looking for someone who can share themselves with me and enjoy the wonderful aspects that a relationship can provide. I value honesty, loyalty, integrity, being upfront, chemistry, and most importantly family. I am looking for someone genuine and like minded. I have a variety of interests that include art galleries, restoration, gardening, hiking and swimming (that is part of my regular exercise program). Science is definitely always an interest. I also enjoy theatre, DVD’s and going to the cinema (don't most people occasionally?).I guess the person I am looking for would like laughing and being taken care of. Looking after me is very important, and I would need someone who understands this and thinks the same. Bye for now and hope to hear from you. My email address is //Steve.parker//@//live//.com//.
My Fond Regards,

A little bit about me to you so as to know who I really am and what I am looking for. I'm in good health and hope you are too. I am an American soldier serving the U.S army now in Bagram Afghanistan presently. I am a service field engineer and take care of other critical things involving the army. In 2004 I was in Iraq. 2007 in Kuwait, 2008 in the United Kingdom and 2009 – 2010 Pakistan. Presently I am based in Afghanistan for my last assignment then I go on retirement and I won’t be here for long. I am going to leave Afghanistan soon and that is why I joined the dating website so I can meet someone special to spend the rest of my life with after the end of service. I am not supposed to be using the internet for other things apart from work but I am taking a big risk and chance. My friend tried it and worked for him so I am sure it is going to work out for me too.
I am shy but outgoing, timid but strong, a loner but loves to be around people who are always happy and understand life is way too short not love and to be happy. I am very educated, not necessarily from a collegiate accomplishment level as I am street wise and in tune with my surroundings, making me more often comfortable than anxious. I have spent a lot of time alone for being a widower for 8 years after I lost my only loving and caring wife, she had to battle cancer for years and I was sad there was nothing I could do to help her and it hurt me so much. I said to myself I had to let love go but now I feel I really need someone else in my life since it has been years now and I can’t continue to live like this.
I think confidence is the greatest asset a person can have, both in them and in the environment around them. I like a woman who has achieved self actualization, that is not dwelling on what happened way back but what could happen today or tomorrow. Those that dwell in the past are not around me very long, I spot them from miles and run fast. The past is what we learn from and it makes us a better and who we are today but to always dwell on the past is not good. I enjoy dancing, great conversation, intelligence, not necessarily from the academic side, but common sense and the ability to think through things. I like a woman that can carry a conversation and is not afraid to learn or to teach for that matter. I want a woman that can laugh at herself sometimes with a good sense of humor and can stop and smell the roses and appreciate the time she has on this earth, knowing it is not forever. I am imaginative, intelligent, and kind-hearted, love reading, swimming, traveling as it is what my job has put me into.
I enjoy conversation over coffee or tea, and I like dinning out. I also enjoy cooking but it is no fun to cook for one’s self and I need someone I can cook for and enjoy together with a glass of wine. Open and honest communication and loyalty are very important to me in a relationship. I value good sense of humor and the unconditional affection of pets. I had a great romance in the past so I know it is within me to express love and passion. Will you share the adventure of life as we help one another become happier, better people along the way?
I would like someone who's as warm on the inside as they are on the outside. A woman to laugh and cry with, share what's in my heart and in your heart. To be my friend, then become my best friend and possible become my life. Someone to watch sunsets with, walk along beach with hand in hand, and on the park. Who will be there through good, bad, happy, sad, laugh, and cry times. Distance shouldn't keep us apart because I don't consider it as a factor. My life is bright now. But with you maybe it'll be brighter. You can chat with me on msn and we can get to know more about us.
Have a lovely day,
