I was active duty military for 5 years, love the mountains, enjoy nature, astronomy, writing, and the never ending pursuit of knowledge. Physical attraction only lasts as long as it needs too, before i find out how beautiful you really are. I need intelligence, i need off the wall conversations and witty banter. This is what I want to compliment you on, because that is what i find attractive. Life is messy, nothing is ever easy, be willing to work things through together, I will always support my partner. I have a higher emotional intelligence than most people I meet my age. That means I respect you decisions and support you to achieve that goal. Arguments are handled like an adult, we sit and talk things through while acknowledging we each have equal say in the relationship. My religion is kindness, my faith is in science, and I wish only for peace.
