So I recently moved to LA from Boston and don't know anyone here, socially anyway. That's the why. I'm a dog loving, cat disliking, sport playing, outdoorsman, that loves being in the water, exploring, driving, skiing, even cooking occaisionally. Pretty much anything that ends with -ing. Camping is always fun, so are roller-coasters, bbq's, and 1 too many cocktails, but not 2 too many, it's always a fine line between a good night, and a long night. ;). I have a wicked Boston accent that people out here seem to love. I'm 6'1", 205 lbs, brown hair, I have freckles, and an athletic build like a linebacker or more specifically, a winger if you know your hockey. I'm ambitious and work hard, but my goals have changed since my 20's. Then I would work 60 hours a week and just chase the bigger paychecks. Now, I of course still need the money, but I care more about my time away from work too. Balancing my life with my work has become more of a priority. I still want to grow in my career, but I want to have more of a life outside work too. I would like to have a relationship for a while first, but I find myself wanting kids of my own- finally, a day I wondered would ever come.
So, what I'm looking for in her. I like sweet, bright, funny, adventurous, athletic, girly yet tomboy-ish, well rounded, pretty, sexy women with a playful, silly side. Not incapable of being goofy or graceful, but she knows exactly when to be each. I don't care about nationality, hair color, or even cup size, but being in shape and healthy is important to me. She should have her own goals and dreams that I can support and draw pride from, and will make her happy. Mostly I want someone who's idea of love is similar to mine. An endless, unconditional, belief that the couple you are together can always keep it together through anything. Being able to talk openly and without fear. To possess a gentle honesty; that allows you to say what might be difficult for a lesser couple.... cuz we can be nice, and say what's on our mind. Knowing that it is to make it stronger and happier, not to judge, hurt, or insult. That saves so many problems, and makes things better for both. I was raised by a great man and amazing woman, my parents, and hope to have a love like theirs someday for myself. I can have a quick, smart ass sense of humor sometimes (what else from an Irish Boston boy?). I think I can talk too much sometimes, especially when I'm nervous, but either my friends are too polite to agree with me or they can't get a word in. Sometimes, I like to disagree with a point of view, just for a little debate. Even if I agree with what was said, but only with someone who gets a kick out of a good back and forth too. I love to learn and discuss interesting topics, my nerdy side I guess. Notice I said debate though, I hate fighting, there's a big difference between the two. For fun most days, I like to break a sweat and get outside with my dog, shoot some hoops, maybe go golfing, and I play hockey every week at least once. I talk to my mom at least once a week, and know that if I call one sister, I better call the other 2 or I'll never hear the end of it. I'd love to talk to my dad again but we lost him in '04 to cancer. But he guides my every decision and conscience everyday. There is so much more to me, but that's enough freebies for the general public. If you wanna listen to me go on about me some more, then say hi, I'm not snobby or stuck-up, I will answer everyone, even if we're not a match, I am hoping to meet my last first date here, but I would love to meet some new good friends too. So no big deal yea? You can wink if your a shy one, I'm pretty outgoing and ok being the one to start the conversation. See ya!
