Episode I---A New Hope

Well, I have officially been back in the US for all of 17 days. I guess I should say a bit about myself. I am 30 yr old man who calls Houston home (and pretty much have for all my life.) The last 3 years were a study in Dichotomy. My work place was even more intense than most other units I saw while I was in, and I guess that is because of the seriousness of the mission that those guys carry out on a daily basis. I don't envy them the things that they have to do now that I am gone. I guess that my own personal values didn't quite match up with what they felt was important. I focus on getting the job done and taking care of my people...and to them the packaging was as important as the product. I will let you draw your own conclusions on that matter. The other side of the coin is that I was in Okinawa Japan. For those of you who don't know, Okinawa is one of the most beautiful places on Earth. The South China sea is an amazing shade of blue that just seems to pull the soul in and comfort it. That, and it is always warm there, even when it is rainy. And then you have the people. To say that this says a lot: My heart found a home in Okinawa. Now, I am a Texas boy through and through, but there was something special and magical about being in Okinawa that I have never had a chance to truely experience before then.

Honestly the only problem that I had with Okinawa was the limited availablity of attractive women. I am not going to say I dont like Asian women, I will just say that I havent really experienced them. I will say that I do find that a language barrier does tend to cause issues when trying to develop a relationship... and leave it at that.

As it sits...I am trying to rebuild my life. First thing to trying to get my life rebuilt is getting me a great gal pal to hang out with. Please note that I am not saying Girlfriend or Fiancee or date or have sex with. Now I wont complain if someone who wants to fill in those little areas falls into my lap, but I just miss having a girl around. They smell better than guys for one thing. Another is they are softer and warmer and well.. I guess I want someone to hold and cuddle... if that isnt asking for too much. Sad thing is, while I was in, I forgot all about how to go out and meet people. Couple that with my semi shyness and you dont have a good situation. I guess that is why I am here. On the internet, I can be braver and I can hide my own insecurities about how I look (I will be honest, and you can look at my pics on my profile to judge for yourself) and I dont think I look as handsome as a lot of guys out there. Sad thing number 2 is that I know that if a gal gives me a chance, and can get to know me...I know how to make a girl happy. I tend to be a very good boyfriend, or so I have been told.

Anyways, that actually felt good. I think i am going to make semi regular posts on here... who knows, maybe it will help me get over things?

Via Con Carne!

Hi, welcome to blog!

Are you aware there is a new group created for bloggers and their readership to meet and frolic in the chat room? (A place for serious discussion as well)

A group where interesting blog posts will be “spot-lighted” along with the links of how to get there. A place where new kids on the block can actually get seen as well as the predominant “hierarchy”.

A place where ideas can flow--from suggested blog topics, to writing "critiques", to directions on how to better use the elements of color, photos, and font style/size to make your blog more eye appealing; as well as instructions on how to better use linking to other posts.

Being that this is an adult site, we will also have a group post running where writers and their followers can indicate where they're from so maybe you might actually be able to meet some folk "local" to you.

Flirtatious banter is encouraged--crude obscene assaults will not be tolerated and are subject to deletion.

So...Stop in and have a little fun over your cup o' joe!

Here is a link to the group Blog Cafe, look forward to meeting you there!
