Well here we are...Like you I have found my way here for a variety of reasons. Foremost for me is the general distaste I have developed for the usual singles scene and the quality of people I often meet. Couple that with the time and energy it all takes and all of a sudden a place like this doesn't seem to be so crazy or pathetic anymore, especially when most of us are here for basically the same reason...to find someone of quality to enjoy and spend time with.
I am an easy going laid back person who is comfortable and confident in my personality and appearance. I approach each new experience with an open mind and find overly judgmental, negative or insecure people irritating.
I love five stars, upscale events, fine dining and cultural enrichment (I even own a tux) but I also love the outdoors.
I like to hike, climb, cave, camp, canoe, fish and so on. I would like to find a full on, ready for most anything adventure partner but would settle for you being ok with sleeping in a tent once in a while and not being afraid of bugs. Of course I will gladly slay scorpions and spiders for you. It's been a while since I've done any climbing (spent most of this summer caving) and I'd like to get back into it so if you like to climb outside or at the gym that would be cool.
Here's some more... I have an 8 year old son who is my main source of joy and motivation. He is the most important thing in my life. He's incredibly smart, handsome, and fun to be with, in other words, a chip off the old block (just checking if you're still awake). No but really he is pretty awesome and joins me caving,climbing, hiking etc. He can even walk a slack line which is pretty amazing for an 8 year old...
I'm not into football, baseball, basketball or any other televised sport that inspires people at a sportsbar to yell at the t.v. (you do know they can't hear you...) However, you can sit there and yell while I go play pool, but be aware that discussing your fantasy league with me will illicit a blank, uninterested gaze. Of course I will not object if you like to sleep wearing nothing but a football jersey and I also don't mind going to a game once in a while
I would like to meet someone who does not feel like every waking moment of their life needs to be defined and guided by someone else.
We all have our own busy lives with responsibilities and freedoms we have grown accustomed to and as such I want and expect you to be your own person. It takes time and understanding to allow two people to grow together to the point where those things truly begin to mesh together and until that time is reached I just want to meet someone I can get to know. Someone I can have fun with, experience things with, go out to eat with, hang out on the couch with, talk to, laugh with and have sex with (again, just checking). And yes, you must have a sense of humor!
Cheers, and hope to hear from you soon.
Oh, one last thing. I have noticed that some profiles have comments in their pet section but I can't do that for some reason so I'll put it here. I love all animals, I really do. I don't have any pets for two reasons. The first and foremost is because I don't feel I have the time and energy to spend giving an animal the care and love it deserves. I'd rather focus my energy elsewhere...like towards you - whoever that may be. Second, I am allergic to most animals with fur and feathers. So, if you have a pet and you are relatively clean then I'll be fine. However, if you have a bunch, or they sleep in bed with you, or I need to run over myself with a lint roller every time I sit on your couch because I am covered in cat hair - that would be a problem. Sorry.
