I love to take on new challenges. Climbing 14'ers, Whitewater rafting, triathlons, marathons, I have tried them all. But this whole relationship thing, that's a whole other challenge I can't seem to train for! Competitiveness is in my nature, but in the grand scheme of things, being humble is what I strive for. Boasting is a trait seen mostly in children. I'm attracted to spontaneous, unique, open-minded and adventurous people.
I am a goofball at heart and I enjoy laughing my butt off. If that means making a mockery of myself, typically, I will do it. Laughing at yourself is a difficult thing for a lot of people. But I think a sense of humor and not being afraid of being vulnerable are extremely attractive qualities. There has been too much importance placed upon being something you aren't, that you lose sight of your true Self.
I would like to share some common interests and views as my partner. I don't like extremists of any sort. I can appreciate passion for certain topics or subjects, but don't be crazy about them. If you can't see the other side of an argument then it's impossible to get anywhere. I find confidence attractive, but there is a thin line between confident and arrogant. And the latter is a major turn off. I dislike complaining. I understand having a bad day, but if every day sucks, do something about it!
Hopeless Romantic? Yes. Oblivious to the obvious? Definitely. Been referred to as ridiculous? Check.
