Just like most of you, I never thought I would try online dating. But while it’s great meeting someone in a spontaneous and romantic way, a busy lifestyle can make that difficult. And of course, at a certain age the bar scene becomes somewhat unappealing. Anyway, a little about me: I’m a very laidback person who tries to enjoy life at all times. That being said, I also care a lot about my career and I’ve worked very hard to get where I am today. However, I have never have nor intend to ever let my job run my life. I spend most of my free time staying active. Running is one of my biggest passions. I make time for a run pretty much every day; of course I have to, because I equally enjoy eating and drinking. I love exploring new restaurants, cooking new meals or old favorites, and washing it down with the perfect wine or a good beer. I also love to travel, and I’m always in search of the next adventure. I’ll always be a Midwest guy at heart, but since high school I’ve lived in and traveled to quite a few places. France is definitely my favorite country outside of the US; I lived there for a semester during college and law school, and I’ve always envisioned myself living there again, but I’d be happy with a few more visits. However, as much as I love the cafes of Paris, I would just as readily spend a vacation backpacking through the mountains. My ideal woman would also be comfortable in both the city and in the mountains. She would also enjoy a similarly active lifestyle. Most importantly, she would always be willing and eager to try new things. If you think you fit this bill, don’t be shy, I’d love to hear from you!
