Hi. My name is Chuck and I was born and raised by christian parents on a large farm in rural michigan. hard work was the norm. chickens, pigs, horses, cows, blueberries, apples, corn and peaches, along with a huge vegetable garden, had to be tended daily. After graduating high school i enlisted in the service and was trained as a seal. I was fortunate to spent 20 years traveling the world. After retiring i went to college and earned my B.A. in poli sci and Masters in paralegal studies. In essence i have striven for something my entire life. I am very disciplined, low key, clean, organized, respectful, loyal to a fault, patient, tolerant, understanding and compassionate. I have always suffered inner pain but it reminds me that i am still alive. Putting others first is a priority, even if I do not know the person. I am non-judgmental and non-critical. Life is too short to waste it on negative energy. I love to travel, cook, and do anything related to the water. I enjoy all cultures and spend a lot of time just observing people. We are a sophisticated breed yet simple. I believe the bottom line is that we all need to be wanted and loved. I am fun to be around and i really enjoy a wholesome laugh (just not at anyone's expense). When i am blessed to cross the path of another, i attempt to enrich their life in some fashion. Karma has shown that you get what you give. My friendship and help to anyone, at any time, wherever i may be, is my foundation, my rock. My current residence is Nevada. I have a 12 year old Siamese (Chance) and 2 Great Danes. I like all animals (except snakes and scorpions). I rarely watch the boob tube. I am more of a music person. Let me know if there is anything else you would like to know. BTW, I am 50 years old. God bless us all. Thanks.
