I live a simple life. One that I am very happy with. I am surrounded by good family and friends. I run a successful business that keeps me super busy. I feel very grateful to be in the place that I am in and I feel that I am on the edge of starting the next chapter. In this chapter I hope to share this life with someone. The good the bad and the ugly!
I have sacrificed a lot in my personal life to be where I am today and it is the right time for me to shift my focus.
Some of the characteristics that are important to me in a match would be a good sence of humor (I have a goofy side that sometimes takes people by surprise), the ability to have an intellectually stimulating conversation, kindness and integrity. Also, my guy can't be afraid of sharing on a deep level or of doing personal inner work. I believe that we are always learning, growing and evolving and nothing gets to me more than someone who feels that they have "arrived". To me masculinity is not looking like you've got everything in order and under control but much more about admitting to the flaws that we all have and dealing with them.
I like to be on the go and would do well with someone who is like that also. I don't do lazy! In a typical day I will walk my dogs, work, go to the gym and meet friends for dinner or a drink. In my free time I enjoy reading, doing pretty much anything outdoors, kayaking, gardening and working in my yard. I love to have people over and during the warmer months especially, there are always people over BBQ-ing and hanging out. During the cooler months I often host house parties. I love the feeling of having my house full of the people I love. I also really enjoy exploring new towns and finding unique restaurants and shops.
I need a balance in my life of adventure and down time. Relationships are important to me. I truly believe that life is what you make it and that we are all entitled to happiness. We just have to be willing to put in a little effort and stay open to new opportunities.
