I'm a fun, friendly, independent and adventurous person who enjoys living life to its fullest. I enjoy being active and going out with friends.
I value formal education, hence why I am working on my second graduate degree as an Educator, thanks to a Teachers Grant. I also value southern hospitality in my love for entertaining and in maintaining a kept home. I have strong familial values as I was raised in a small family and hope to have a similar family values someday myself. I am a spiritual person and while I have reservations about organized religion, I am open to learning more about it. I occasionally attend church. On the day to day, I like to train to run races as it keeps my dog and I in shape, however, I am not a competitive person. I am an idealist and wish the best of luck to everyone around. I enjoy cooking and try to learn a new recipe each week. I like doing various DIY projects around the home.
I am passionate about playing in the great outdoors, specifically hiking, climbing 14ers, snowshoeing, snowboarding, etc. and am excited to learn more about fly fishing this Spring and Summer. I am also passionate about music and being 'one with the crowd' at live shows. I grew up playing piano and guitar and music was incorporated into my daily life. I have a deep respect for musical talent although have found less patience in practicing music myself. Some of my favorite genres are indie, alternative, jam/improv, bluegrass, classic rock, reggae, and old school hip hop. I enjoy traveling and had the pleasure of visiting the countries best national parks in college. I would love to broaden my horizons and learn about other cultures by traveling to other countries as I have not yet been able to do this much.
I am looking for an accomplished gentleman, someone who is respectful, courteous, a good conversationalist, and who is intellectually stimulating. I am looking for someone who wants to be my companion or 'partner in crime', someone who is able to 'let loose' and share their love for common interests. I would like to meet someone who has an established professional career and personal life balance to promote positivity and longevity in a relationship. I am looking for someone who is trustworthy, honest and is not looking to play games. I am looking for an all around good guy who is witty, and charismatic, who can be the life of the party but that doesn't have to. In addition, I am looking for someone who is willing to do their fare share around the house including DIY projects. All in all, I would like to meet someone that is well-rounded and lovable by all...Someone I can enjoy the daily grind with as well as the many adventures that the journey of life has to offer.
If you feel like you and I are a potential match, please contact me via email. I am somewhat traditional in my views about dating and am a little out of my comfort zone with online dating, thus, I would like to be approached rather than the approacher. However, if I wink at you, please understand that I am interested in getting to know you, so respond if you are so inclined. Otherwise, good luck in finding your perfect match! :)
