I suspect those that know me well would say I am very goal oriented, responsible, rational and level headed. However, get me out of the daily routine and I am very agreeable to setting those aside to live in the moment. Sort of a "work hard/play hard" mantra. I have high expectations of myself and have every intention of achieving those expectations by staying the course.
I guess you could describe me as 1/3 city, 1/3 island and 1/3 mountains. I love big cities and city life, however I NEED the outlet to nature, serenity and calmness. I have an innate attraction to water; island, stream or lake. I love to fly fish in remote mountain areas, probably more for the incredible nature then the fishing itself. And I have a home on a very small island in the Bahamas with the most incredible beach ever. I used to surf when I grew up in OC and that is probably one of the reasons I need water in my "outlets" from the city. Travel is a big one to me, it just seems that places are meant to see.
On the personal side, I absolutely love to surprise with the unexpected. I recognize relationships require attention more than most are willing to invest, but I believe with conviction that given the right "match" I will give what is needed and more to a relationship. I do love to take care of others!
I'm sure some will "wonder" why I am not married, but in simple terms the truth is that I never wanted to marry before 30 because many are still finding out who they are in their 20's...but then with a career and location change at 32 and a very focused job that used to require significant travel, I quite frankly saw the last number of years fly by.
What I am looking for in someone? Well, I will say up front, in hopes of it not sounding too shallow, but attraction is very important to me. Attraction is just one of the elements that goes into chemistry. The physical/intimate aspects of a relationship? Let's just say that is very importsnt to me! Honesty is a must, as I give that completely in return. I believe people are smart enough to know that nobody is perfect, and with that in mind, honesty is just a testimony to the recognition of that fact. That said, certain imperfections are simply unacceptable, and I think we all know what those are; the ones that are intentional and just wrong. All these and more is what goes into character and integrity.
While I have always been skeptical of dating services, I suppose I have come to the realization that in todays world so many people simply dont have the time to get out there and spend the required time to meet tons of people in hopes of finding the right one. So I am approaching this with a very open mind in hopes of finding that special someone.
So much one could say in this description, so if I sound like a possible "match" then maybe we can continue this over coffee or a drink :)
