I really try very hard to place GOD at the center of my life, although I sometimes fall very short. Saved since age 15, but in the past 5 years, I have worked especially hard to discern GOD'S perfect Will, and Purpose, for my life, as I did not do a very sterling job of running things myself. I attend a very dynamic, and uplifting, Southern Baptist Church that has grown from 175-5000+ souls in only 11 years. Raised in a small town in SC. Politically, I am Conservative. Biblically, I'm very Conservative also, but not a Legalistic type of Christian. It's more about a PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP with Jesus Christ than just being Religious. I certainly did "walk on the Wild Side" in the early part of my life, prior to Marriage, and reluctantly, have to admit that I've seen both sides of Life. I'm so thankful to God for helping me find my way out of this condition. I am 6ft2in & 185lbs, toned, very athletic, and enjoy Tennis, racquetball, waterskiing, jetskiing, boating, bicycling(road bikes), basketball, and working out. Waterskiing (Slalom) is my favorite sport, with Tennis a very close second. I'm certainly NOT Felix Ungar(The Odd Couple), but I do keep my home in a very neat and clean condition. I seldom watch sports on TV. I also love reading, a good movie, and just relaxing. I hold a Commercial Pilot's License w/ Instrument, Multi-Engine, & CFI ratings. Worked as a Certified Flight Instructor in College. I am not immature, but my mind still believes, I am in my 20's, and what your mind believes, your body will follow. Haha. I still do most of the things I did in my 20's. . . I just don't do them quite as well! I love traveling to different beaches, Lighthouses, and historical sites. The Beach is my favorite place. We also spend many weekends on Lake Keowee in Seneca, SC. I was thrilled, recently, to crew as a "Grinder" on Dennis Connor's ex-boat, "Stars & Stripes". This is the Racing Yacht that won the "America's Cup" back from Australia in 1987. Have been told by many, that I am a very witty guy, and I love to joke and cut-up, though it would surprise most people to know, that I basically am an introvert. When the situation demands it, I also have a serious side. I was married for 21 years. Divorce was not an option, in my mind, but had to accept it. I am very thankful to GOD for the great life I have, but I badly miss the companionship of Marriage, and having someone to share Life's good and bad times with. Am seeking an attractive girl, who is SLENDER, petite, tall, or toned, who is physically fit enough to keep up with me. Don't wish to offend anyone, but SLENDER, is the KEY word, here. She should take pride in maintaining her looks, figure, and fitness, but not to obsession. Tennis skills would be a HUGE PLUS, but not mandatory, as I own a Townhouse condo at a Racquet Club. Bonus points, also, if you love to WATERSKI!! Skill level not important. Most importantly. . . my future wife would put GOD first in her life, and me second. I truly believe this is the only way a marriage can be truly happy in the long term. A long friendship would have to come first, of course. I am allergic to cats, and could not be around them at all. I believe that any great relationship is surely a 2-Way street of Give & Take. Be assured, I am a sincere, down-to-earth, straightforward guy, who will not LIE, or play HEAD GAMES. Couch Potatoes, "PRETEND CHRISTIANS", and Smokers need NOT apply. Well. . . I suspect, I have discouraged many of you girls out there, so I am going to have to trust GOD for a true miracle.
