I live with my 18 year old daughter. Most of my family lives interstate. Until recently my previous girlfriend was the most important person. Sadly she succumbed to the deceit of Satan and betrayed me for a man with a lot more money. (she was not a Christian, but always said she believed in God - Yeah right!!!) What do close friends have to have to be my friend? - Truth and sincerity. How would I describe myself? Caring sincere. A leader. Strong when I have to be in a leadership role, but as quiet as a pussycat when I take that hat off. I wear my heart on my sleeve and am very passionate about the welfare of people I am responsible for. My favorite peeve - Insincerity. What can people do to please me - Just be yourself, but above all love God and be truthful. The last two should be mutually inclusive. I have always been strong on injustice, particularly in the workplace. I am ex military and have a strong sense of doing what is right by my troops (Family or colleagues) . Often I stand alone while others run and hide. It never stops me standing. God put a fighting spirit in me, so even when I feel like running, I turn and face the enemy. I dont know what my goals are. I have to start again. A house of peace where people are always welcome in the Spirit of Christ. A loving partner who is as giving of herself as I am. A house on a small acreage where all of Gods animals are welcome, so I can feed them everyday. My hobbies are: Architecture, photography, art, nature. Riding my motorbike. Relaxing to music and computer gaming. My partner must enjoy the odd thrashing in a computer game!!!! :-) Can you match what I seek?
