I enjoy riding the waves of life...the peaks as well as the troughs. Trials and tribulations are what defines us, right? I'm a 'go-getter' and I don't like waiting, for anything. LIfe is way too short to let 'fate' decide the outcome. My goal everyday is to feel alive...to TRULY FEEL ALIVE. Do you remember what you did last week? If you don't, maybe you need to add some excitement...some uncertainty. It's all about risk and reward, and I'm definitely skirting on the risk side...calculated risk. I love adventure and I love to learn new things. I hate making plans because I'd much rather be spontaneous and see where the energy of the night leads me. You don't need to be on a mountain or in the woods to have an adventure... I've dated a lot and I don't have trouble meeting people, but I do have an issue meeting someone that I want to have a longer term relationship with. This is why I'm exploring this avenue...another adventure of sorts. I have an open mind, silly at times and serious when I have to be. I'm generous and chivalrous which I have to owe to my midwest roots. I can adapt to any environment and with any group of people. I don't mind being alone and I truly enjoy my independence, but I also know that if I find someone that is just as confident with themselves, we will be a very strong couple. I've known too many relationships that don't work because of dependence...it's not attractive. I love to travel so I'd like to find my partner in crime to attack the next adventure, wherever that might be...a mountain climb on Rainier, biking in Utah, skiing in Vail, snorkeling in the Maldives or just overdosing on coconuts in Phuket. Health has become a big part of my life and I'm big on organic foods and my new vita-mix. I'd like to meet someone that also has health as a priority. I love to stay active and if I'm not working, you'll find me running along the west side highway, at equinox, or sparing at brazilian jiu jitsu classes. Being my own boss affords me a lot of time to travel and pursue different opportunities...I'm really interested in opening up a super trendy organic restaurant one day... And I'm super-duper close with my family as they are my backbone, I'd need to find someone that has very strong family values. Whew...that's a lot of rambling...what are we going to talk about now? Haha.
“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!”

Winking is great...but what's even better is a quick message to follow it up.
