If you can’t laugh at yourself when life leaves toilet paper on your shoe, you’re missing out. Not everything goes as planned, and if we’re to handle the big stuff, we have to laugh at the small. That’s how I keep myself balanced. I live in the moment, generally content where I am and what I’m doing at any given time.
Perhaps my outlook is a result of living in different places while growing up. At a young age I learned to appreciate the moment. Give me a map and a good pair of shoes, and I’ll find my way. Exploring the world reminds me of my place in it.
For fun at home, I love hanging out with my great group of friends. I absolutely love to cook for them. When we go out, I’d much rather laugh loudly at a local dive bar with Guinness in hand than sit, napkin in lap, in a swanky hotspot with bottle service and a long line.
I want to build a relationship based on complete openness, honesty and objectivity. I don’t expect us to agree on everything, but I do expect you to be open to different opinions and viewpoints.
As much as I love a good chick flick I would never make you watch with me unless you secretly wanted to hear Johnny say "nobody puts Baby in the corner" (I promise not to tell your friends). I think John Hughes was an absolute genius and Sean Connery is the one and only Bond.
I’m truly attracted more to personality than looks. The chemistry, of course, must be there, but a solid sense of self that translates into confidence, not conceit, can turn “just OK” into flat-out gorgeous.
If you’re romantic and laugh often, too, I can overlook that spinach in your teeth. I might make a crack about it, but it’s OK: You can tease me about the pesto on my chin.
