Wouldn’t it be great if life imitated the movies? …you know the ones… where the hero rises above the human condition and beats the odds. It doesn't matter the genre, but a good movie evolves with passion and purpose moving with meaning and momentum and carries you to a different and often better place than where you were.
That's what I want in a relationship.
With friends, you’ll see me laid back, very approachable, sometimes silly, and maybe even a bit nerdy. I have a sentimental streak a mile wide and the family keepsakes to show for it. I was raised with those strong western morals: actions speak louder than words; your word is the most important thing a person has; and being a good person isn’t always easy, but it’s always worth it.
If you were to see me at the office, you'd see a different side of me. At work I’m straight laced, disciplined, and driven. I enjoy my work and I spend the majority of my time there; my career has treated me well and I don't take it for granted. In addition to my main job, I also carry on my family’s tradition of serving our country. I served active duty in the Navy and today I continue to serve in the Air Force Reserves.
I think that love isn't possible without also genuinely liking the person. I think that showing somebody you care is as important as saying it. And while I’m as intrigued as the next guy with the occasional instant combustion of an intense love affair, I put more stock in the steady burn of a real and lasting relationship. What am I looking for in a partner? There are so many intangibles it’s difficult to say. Basically, if you try your best to do the right thing, then I think we’d get along great.
I'm willing to give us the time and space to see if we click. If so, we just might be able to write our very own happy ending.
