I am...I am that "nice guy" who has managed to get this far without having had the experience of being married or having children. I come from a large, involved family and I am looking to create something a little more "intimate" for myself with another person who's looking for another to have a life with. While i do not have kids of my own, I have several nieces and nephews and enjoy their company. I try to be the "cool uncle" to them and be a part of their lives.
Me: I enjoy helping people. I try not to seem naive but I really feel that helping others and treating others well is important. There are always others out there doing more but, I want to feel as if I can make a difference with the things that I do. I just led a team for a Relay For Life event and, it's amazing to me that devoting one day can be so fulfilling.
I think it's important that the other person in my life is a present, caring, and empathetic person who does value the notion that someone is looking out for them too. It's clear that a relationship takes some work and I think one of the keys to a good pairing is knowing that two working at something is always better."
I am an optimistic person with a bit of an "old-fashioned" view toward the whole romantic aspect of relationships. Frankly, as I grow older, I meet more people who have a cynical outlook on what it means to open up and share a life with someone. I am really hoping to meet someone who can look forward to something and who can appreciate and value future experiences without too much comparison to the past. We've all been somewhere but, we also need to leave it to go to that next, better place.
I am an educated guy with a pretty firm grip on what ti takes to get along in the world. I am striving to keep art in my life while getting though the every day and, hoping to find someone who can appreciate the notion of getting the most out of our time here and leaving things a little better than we found them.
Perhaps, that's most key...realizing that we are here for a relatively short time and that we should seek out the best way to fill our days.
