A Ladies Man

Most ladies would say that is was Colton's deadly blue eyes that made Melissa fall madly in love with him. On the other hand the reason could be something much more powerful and unresisting. And that reason is how Fuller portrayed him as being a pure gentlemen who is the most respectful with out even being aware of it. What helped shape and mold Colton into the man he was was the land he grew up to love and respect. Everything from hunting with his brother to breaking his first mustang played an important role in the shape of Fullers story and also in how Colton lived his own actual life.

Going along with this Bills philosophy on hunting also taught him to have respect for the animal and to not let any of it go to waste. This kind of wisdom from his dad was the stepping-stones to Colton having the manners of a real man towards a woman. A woman loves her man to have respect for her and to have all the patience in the world.
