Life is good!
I love to travel and have explored many countries in Western Europe, Central America, and the Caribbean. I have attempted to run with the bulls (don't ask) in Pamplona, Spain, driven blindly through a crocodile infested river in the middle of the night in Costa Rica and enjoyed a cup of coffee with Will Ferrell in a coffee shop on a random weekday morning in Stockholm, Sweden (he is a LARGE man, and I guess he's sort of funny). My bucket list is a continual work in progress and I am looking for someone to help me punch a few holes in it.
When I'm not discovering what the world has to offer I am busy building myself the life I deserve. I am very ambitious; I am a working professional, small business owner and real estate investor. Even though it is technically 'work' (and I still hate Mondays) I love what I do and wouldn't change a thing about my past or where my life is going. I am constantly thinking up new business ideas or coming up with ways to better an existing business. You know those business magazines that you see at the store with the old guy on the cover that you think to yourself 'Who actually reads that?' I do.
A man much wiser than I once said 'It is better to work smarter than harder' and I couldn't agree more. While I've mostly put my partying days behind me (they still sneak up on me every now and then), I try to make the most out of the free time I have. Whether I'm enjoying some adult beverages with good friends outside a Thornton Park restaurant on a cool spring afternoon or playing in a charity golf tournament with my dad and the guys I try to take advantage of the good times that life has to offer. If you're the kind of girl who would rather get out and see what the world has to offer rather than watch TV you are off to the right start!
I enjoy learning and am constantly trying new things. I like figuring out how things work and thinking up ways to make them work better. Intelligence is a huge turn on. I'm not looking for Einstein (and I hope you're better looking than he was) but my past relationships with 'spacey' girls have not been the best.
I put others before myself and appreciate a woman who does the same. I realize more and more every day how fortunate I am to have been raised by amazing parents and want to someday give my kids the same experience. I'm looking for someone with a positive attitude, a big heart, an open-mind and a sense of humor. I want a partner who is completely happy and satisfied with their life but is looking for that perfect guy (me, duh) to be the icing on the cake.
Integrity is important to me. I have found that some women have not been honest about themselves in their profiles and have heard that men lie about everything from their height to their weight to their employment. My profile, like my life, is earnest. Please write me only if your profile is, as well.
