Who am I? ...I'm an authentic midwesterner with core values, but definitely enjoy California livin'. I would describe myself as hard working and confident with a goal-orientated mindset. I enjoy making people laugh. I am intelligent and carry on meaningful conversations. I am a helper and listener. I genuinely care about other people’s feelings…. When I am with someone special I like being spontaneous, adventurous, romantic, playful, surprising them with little gestures and basically having that type of fun you see two people who just met that are in the “honeymoon stage” of their relationship having. It’s something I want to never fizzle or go away like an incredible friendship connection. I’m looking for someone who has similar qualities and desires someone who they can connect with… I feel there has to be mutual physical attraction for there to be chemistry between two individuals, so being fit and having good looks are important. Much more so... being honest, communicating, encouraging and affectionate toward one another is most important! Having some similar interests helps….. Some things I enjoy are: spending time with my friends and family, especially my nephew (in the photo), fine dining, cooking, entertaining, craft beer, wine tasting, skydiving (a new passion), hiking, surfing, snowboarding, beachin’ it up, couples hot rock massages, a night in cuddling, day trips to local attractions, music (all kinds) venues, traveling and basically having a blast together!
