When people first meet me, their trust and comfort levels with me are almost instantaneous. It is probably due to me being very open and down-to-earth. I think my honesty shines through in my eyes. My friends would describe me as funny, kind, respectful, and laid-back. I love kids, and always look forward to playing with my niece (seen in one of my photos). I tend to be very active playing sports, which is my first passion. I am very adventurous and willing to try anything once. I have been asked many times, "you're attractive, you have a good job, you have a great personality, and you're a great catch...so why are you single?" First of all, I have a hard time believing it. Second, I am picky with who I want to be with. I am looking for someone who is down-to-earth, with similar values. That person will be my companion while traveling the world and truly experiencing life. Travel is my second passion. There is so much out there to see, and it is always more fun traveling new territories with someone special. I have a need to learn about other cultures as well as experiment with different foods (not including the cuisine seen on "Fear Factor"). We would have our individual lives, as well as our lives together. We would have common interests; yet have other interests we could explore. Learning from each other would be an ongoing thing. Chemistry is a must. I've met too many women that is a very good match on paper, but the chemistry wasn't there. I am looking to meet my third passion.
