Short version: Dedicated, family-minded, fun-loving, well-read, creative guy who's looking to meet the same in a special woman and continue this journey with her. Let's see where we both want to go, lay out a map and hit the road together.
Want more detail? Here's the longer version:
My presence has been described as peaceful. I avoid drama like the plague. I'm thoughtful and caring. I'm steadfast in my commitments. I practice chivalry. I believe in honesty, honor, integrity, and fidelity. I value justice. It's my personal "cause". Every day I'm trying to be the change I seek in the world.
I'm a Chicagoan and a rabid Chicago Bears fan. I love the art, architecture and food that embodies Chicago. I love to read, take road trips, hit comedy clubs, try out new wines (red), grilling, evenings out for cocktails and evenings in with either friends or one on one. I took some very intensive salsa classes a while back. I'm not very good but, with a nice glass of courage (or two), I'm willing to try.
We provide balance between work and play for each other. We believe opportunities present themselves and require action to make them into reality. Together, we're looking to take that action.
You are, simply, a good, honest and loving person at heart. You don't have to be a saint (I'm not and that's not realistic). You have a cause. We both believe the adage that if you stand for nothing, you'll fall for anything. I'm progressive in a lot of ways and traditional in others and you appreciate that mix.
You have a great sense of humor. My friends and I have sharp, quick wits. Your friends are probably the same.
You're emotionally available and lacking (or at least over) any fears around commitment. I'm going to support you and have your back through thick and thin. You deserve that level of commitment and will have my back too.
Ultimately, you like yourself; you're real with yourself and others; and, you enjoy the time in your own skin.
