Though I really don't like starting with talking about myself, I get that whatever is said here may encourage you to look deeper. I am an independent and energetic person, willing to search out adventure and try new things. My interests, hobbies and studies are broad and ongoing. As such, I am a very busy person and always on the go, so the online dating thing is a great way to expand my options and meet people that would take multiple lifetimes to meet.
I don't have much of a "bucket list" of things I'd want to do before I die, as I think the list would be too long. Have an idea, I'm willing to try most things. I love to travel and check out small towns, big cities or new cultures abroad. I haven't been traveling as much lately, but that has changed this summer. I'd love to have a partner to ride shotgun.
Friends have described me as passionate, compassionate, reliable, trustworthy and loyal. I like to draw those qualities into my circle of friends and partner. I can be an extremely generous person and often find small gifts or ways to take special care of the special people in my life, whether family, friends or partners. I appreciate people who do what they say and say what they will do; dependable and reliable. I lead with trust and accept people where they are today, not by their past. Actions also speak louder than words.
Tidbits about me:
-I'm a vegetarian, but meat eaters are not a turn off
-I don't own a TV and love all the extra time and reading time it provides me (though it is a bit painful during Packer season)
-Meditation is a daily ritual for me, like brushing my teeth
-My eyes get me compliments all the time, even if no one can guess the color
-I've been told that pictures do not do me justice and I'm better looking in person (guess you will have to judge for yourself)
-I travel a lot to the Chicago area for friends and education, so I'm open to longer distance connections
Overall, I'm pretty normal even with all the tidbits. These are just the things that may just make me stand out from a crowd. Also, I tend to be a winker first and then let you be the gentleman and reach out to me, but not because I'm shy. Hope to hear from you soon!
