ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

I am a successful negotiator who also happens to love being a people person. I recently returned from working overseas in Italy, and before that working in NYC for a few months before taking a hiatus last summer. Now that I am back I am focusing now on settling back into my life and the things that are important including making my personal life a priority.

My match would be laid back, compassionate, ambitious in whatever matters to her, kind, and most importantly comfortable in her own skin. She would be a lot like me: finding just as much pleasure in a night out on the town as she would curling up watching a movie at home.

I seek the occasional adrenalin rush. After all, there's no point in having a life if you can't feel it. Last year I went shark diving for the first time in the Bahamas, but mostly rock climb any chance I get. Jumping out of a perfectly good airplane just might be at the top of my agenda this year.

I keep in shape by running four miles four to five times a week and lifting weights (may do the Marine Corps marathon this coming Fall). I also like to mix it up with martial arts and kickboxing. My New Year's resolution for this year has been to run 10 races before December 31st...I just finished number 6 (***UPDATE I just finished my tenth race on 11/11/2012 with the Veteran's Day 10k!).

I have a pretty big heart when it comes to family and friends. Family is a big part of my life, and I would do anything for my friends. So when it comes to those you care about, you should have a big heart too.

I'm a mesh of a little ol' fashioned gentlemanliness with modern day mellowness. Nothing in life is worth stressing over, and I'm binging big time on a drama-free diet. Laid back, genuine cat looking for the same in a woman who believes in just getting out and having a good time meeting fun people. And if it clicks, we can go from there.

This part is crucial. If you are someone who is:

Messed up in the head over guys, looking for the jerk who will disrespect or mistreat you, is flakey, flighty, the jealous type, likes to wink and then goes dark, pulls disappearing acts, "thinks" you know what you want but then comes to a place where you are "not sure anymore," or likes to wink back, disappear, but continues to look at my profile (which by the way redefines creepy and weird), please have enough respect to realize this is a waste of my time. I am a big believer in treating others the way I would want to be treated, which includes (even for all the chillness) playing no games and being respectful. If you are old enough to vote but not mature enough to be resolute and know why you are on Match, or looking for a nice guy, please keep it moving.

*** UPDATE: Ok while what I am about to say is typically filed under "C" for common sense rules of dating, it appears that such concepts are not so easy to grasp:

#1: It is never cool to tell a guy on a first date that you "drink a lot" unless you are looking for a lush for a husband/boyfriend; and,
#2: It is under no circumstances EVER a good idea to talk about the "anatomy" of previous men you've dated. I'm laid back but not that laid back. Anyways...where was I?

Being a good listener is important to me. In my experience, those near and dear to me don't always want a solution to their problems...just to know that someone cares enough to listen to them. And if all of that's not enough, did I mention I'm an awesome cook? Perhaps I can make my famous lamb, with Tuscan risotto and broccoli in my balsamic vinegar reduction...
