ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

I moved back to Houston two years ago to jumpstart a new career path, and while I grew up here, I'm interested in meeting some new people.

I think the best way to describe yourself is to write what you think your best friend would say about you. Driven (a positive spin on what could be considered stubborn at times), entertaining (I like to make people laugh and am not afraid to laugh at myself), and loyal (I'll do whatever I can to help a friend) are three quick attributes that describe me. Not to worry though. I have many more stellar qualities you can learn about later. I definitely have a sarcastic sense of humor, but I still like to see the best in everyone I meet. Life is simply too short to do otherwise.

I prefer to keep myself busy rather than sitting around on the couch, so I have quite a few interests and hobbies. One favorite is keeping myself in shape. I love jogging and working out at Fit every day before school. Taking care of myself allows me to indulge my huge sweet tooth and to be fairly laid back despite having a driven personality.

On weekends in the fall, I love to watch college football and the Texans (even after this last season). I'm a pretty voracious reader and always strive to learn and make myself better. Continual improvement in everything in life is my goal.

My greatest passion is traveling to exotic locations to go scuba diving. I've had the luxury of learning in Australia, and my last trip was to the Maldives. When it's time to retire, it would be great to do that somewhere that would allow for diving every day. Ideally, it would be place where I could teach school for poor children during the day and then dive in the afternoons/weekends. I've found the place in Roatan, Honduras, but it wouldn't be nearly as fun without someone to share it with and there are many other places to consider/explore first. Photos of some of my underwater adventures are in my profile.

I enjoy traveling outside of dive vacations, but I enjoy going to non-traditional places. Don't get me wrong though. I'm not against AC or other modern conveniences. Any trip can be a memorable one once you get outside your comfort zone and make an effort to learn about the place you're going to see. In other words, you're not going to find me spending a lot of time in the hotel room no matter how nice it is.

I'm not a huge "see and be seen" type of person, so I prefer to hit more laid back places with friends than going to the trendiest new club or bar. I can't dance, but that doesn't mean I won't give it my best once I've had a few drinks. I really enjoy going out, but I also enjoy spending a quiet night at home with someone I care about.

Now that I've given you an glimpse of me, here is what I am looking for in a match. Intelligence, a witty and sharp sense of humor, and a desire to experience all life has to offer are key starting points. She would be confident and driven, yet laid back enough to have fun. I enjoy the company of women who go full bore into everything they do in their life. Those that are satisfied with "good enough" aren't going to be a good match for me. In that same vein, she should have goals and be actively pursuing them. I would like to help her achieve her goals as well as having her be a big part in achieving mine. She would love to travel and be open to new experiences. Finally, while I don't have one set of physical characteristics that I am drawn to, I think it's very important that a person takes care of themselves physically, emotionally, and intellectually.

I'm not one to exchange a lot of emails and never meet, so if you're interested in an email buddy only, I'm probably not the one for you. However, if you're serious about meeting another cool person that could be a great friend and maybe more, I look forward to hearing from you.
