ok, let the judging begin:
I originally hail from Portland Oregon. I attended Southern Cal and remained here in Los Angeles, and it has become a great hometown for me. I have two extraordinary kids and place a big emphasis on family. Over the years I have been fortunate to make and keep a handful of solid friends that rarely let me down. I've been blessed with many good times and great experiences.
I've come to appreciate dissimilar perspectives, and I understand that things aren't always as they seem. I know that good or great times can be better appreciated if we’ve experienced bad or painful times. I believe that nothing is better for the body and soul than to be challenged both physically and mentally on a regular basis.
I would consider myself loyal, curious, honest, ambitous, diplomatic, perceptive, and self disciplined. I'm strong willed, but not obstinate. I can be sarcastic-but never caustic or bitter, generous but also guarded. Sometimes withdrawn, but not very often. I love the outdoors and have a big passion for triathlons, hiking, mountaineering, and exploring anything new. I like to travel and I'm always up for any adventure. The last several years have reinforced to me that the inherent discomfort and difficulties attributed to growth and change are essential in this journey we call life. In other words it has been a challenging stretch and hopefully I'm the better man for it.
What I'm looking for:
A PROJECT: You must be high maintenance, almost a prima donna with issues, i.e., needy, insecure, and hyper emotional, even better if you're almost to the point of being totally irrational, inflexible, uncompromising, selfish, and unstable. Professional therapy has failed, and you have nowhere else to turn. A volatile, temperamental woman that must have her way ALL the time is very attractive. Also she should be uneducated, (therefore unable to challenge me) duplicitous, and unable to communicate her feelings, (big plus if she likes to hang up the phone in the middle of a discussion/disagreement) ;-)
If you have read this far, then you should know that a little drama is fine, but let's keep it in check.. I'm searching for a genuine, intelligent, adventurous woman. I want to enhance her life rather than complete it. It's imperative that she's happy with herself and appreciates a sense of humor. Sarcasm is awesome and grasping when and how to use it is helpful. I would like to share goals, aspirations, and common interests. I need to have open lines of communication and of course a mental and physical attraction.
I have taken the time to find myself and know what I want, and I'd rather not settle for less. I'm happy being on my own, but I know my life would become more fulfilled with someone to share it with.
