Ok, here we go....
I believe that it is not our similarities that make a relationship work but the differences we embrace and allow to complement each other...
I'm here for the same reason you're here. To meet someone special. It's a llittle different, this online thing, but I've got friends who...yadda yadda yadda.....and so here I am trying to have fun with it and not feel like I'm grocery shopping for a girlfriend.
I'm an athletic, funny, intelligent and active guy. I work for myself and measure success by the happiness I find in what I do and the quality of life I lead.
I have some lesser qualities, too, of course. I don't shave every day, I suck at cracking eggs, I am a bit of a dork, I laugh out loud at FedEx commercials and I throw all of my socks and underwear into one drawer in a big tangled heap. I hope none of these things scare you away.
I am a personal trainer. I enjoy being fit and active and helping other people reach their own potential. No, I won't demand that you work out all the time or make you eat sprout sandwiches for dinner. I exercise because I enjoy it and I eat what I want which includes a lot of cheeseburgers. It would be nice, though, if you too were fit and active.
I am also a writer. Mostly spontaneous haiku and unedited short stories but there is also the continuously revised novel outline.
When it comes to down time I much prefer a quiet spot with a nice bourbon or Syrah and good conversation to fighting crowds and shouting lines at any club. I do like to get out for live music whenever I can, though, and when the moment strikes me you better be ready to learn how to two step. ;)
I love music and I play a little guitar...badly. Maybe I should take some lessons.
Travel is a big thing for me. There is so much out there to explore. I spent six months backpacking/teaching/volunteering in South American and loved it. Next stop...South Africa or maybe Asia!
So who am I looking for......I don't have a long list of things you must 'be.' That's not very romantic. What I'm looking for is 'that feeling.' Everything else is just details. A bit of a hopeless romantic in that way.
You don't have to like everything I like, just be the girl who makes me smile. Of course, I would prefer that you be smart, funny, affectionate and someone who will challenge me to live more and live better.
I'd like to find someone who is independent and has a career she enjoys and is proud of but also understands that life is not something that happens on the weekends.
It's important to have someone I'm excited going to bed with but just as important to be excited waking up next to her.
What I am looking for is someone to share, smile, learn and grow with. Winks are sweet and appreciated but an email is twice is nice. Don't be shy!
I may not have included a lot of info here but I'd much rather interact with someone than try and explain myself in these boxes. Ask me anything you like!
"Nothing that can be, can come between me and the full prospect of my hopes."
