Hopefully I won't catch too much heat for this, but after a few false starts, I decided to change my age. Im 42, not 36, but starting a family is important to me, I'm regularly told I don't look my age, and I'm very active, so I adjusted my age so that I would reach a more compatible cross section of women on here.
After years of schooling and working my way up, I'm ready to balance all that out and start the next phase of my life with that special someone. As corny as that sounds, it just seems that many things in life are even better when shared. Ready to build a relationship, find the ideal person to share and experience this crazy world, and start a family. Ready to enjoy more of life's adventures, and laugh at life's absurdities, and maybe get into a little trouble along the way. Definitely looking for that best friend/partner in crime vibe.
My family is hugely important to me, and we are very close. One thing I'm looking forward to is starting my own family. Both of my brothers have children and as fun as it's been to be an uncle, I'm looking forward to the rewards of being a father. Likewise, finding that amazing person who enriches my life, and in full reciprocity, I enrich theirs, is one of my main priorities.
It's hard to think about what to write about oneself....I was born and raised in New Jersey and moved to Florida in 2001 for graduate school. I like the vibrancy and eclectic aspects of Miami, but there seems to be a air of drama/entitlement/materialism that I didn't grow up with in the Northeast that I haven't gotten used to. As a result, it's been somewhat difficult meeting new people, hence I decided to look on here and surf some profiles and hopefully meet some cool, interesting people. Will it be "the one"? Good question, we'll see! :)
So who am I and what am I looking for? I'm intelligent, funny/witty/sarcastic, positive, giving, encouraging, curious and aware. I'm serious and love my careers, but it doesn't define me. Outside of work, I love spending time with friends family, and the best times are when they both are mixed together! I can also be introspective nerdy at times, but it's not in a mean or dismissive way, we all need alone times here and there. No drama, clinging, mean-streaks, dish-throwing mood swings here, and not looking for any. Spontaneity and adventure are common themes of myself and qualities I am attracted to, and I like to push myself to improve and to experience new things, and all life has to offer. In short, Be positive active, love families the idea of starting our own, give a crap about others, be ready to laugh have a passport. Long, dark hair the ability to speak Portuguese gets super bonus points! Have fun
For fun, I love surfing, mountain biking, playing soccer, skiing, skateboarding, almost anything that involves being outside. I'm pretty sure I have a TV somewhere, but it hasn't been plugged in for years, Miami is too beautiful to be inside during daylight. I just started training for the ING Miami Half-Marathon and would love to take on a triathalon in the future. I would love if training and exercising is something we could do together, I think that's a pretty sexy way to spend time together. I love a day out on the boat, even better if we visit friends at Stiltsville. Love football (Go Giants!) and going to Dolphin & Hurricane games. I'm learning to appreciate food and different cuisines, but I love different wines, and it's nice to relax and night on a nice couch with a cuddly cutie. I enjoy all types of music and regularly go see live acts. I'm the type of person who will go by myself I can't find anyone else to drag along. I've only bowled once but I love playing pool. I like having a few drinks and some conversation with someone that's intelligent & funny, though that seems to be a hard combination to find-Where are you?
