Hi, I'm Jason. I grew up on Long Island, NY, but relocated here with my family when I was 16. I've been out of Arizona a couple of times, also spending some time living in Pittsburgh and San Francisco, but came back to Arizona the most recent time about 3 years ago.
Over the last few years I've reached the balance in life I've long desired. I'm proud of the career that I've built. I enjoy the social circle I surround myself with. I make time for hobbies interests, including rock climbing, volunteering, and traveling. I've achieved many of my educational goals, and continue to pursue the right opportunities to learn more. Although my family is spread all over the country, I have a good relationship with them. Overall, I feel confident that I'm building the right future for myself, but I still manage to have a lot of fun as I go.
The last missing piece is that "click" with someone. Ideally she would also have built a life she's proud of, but also be open to sharing her interests and time with me. I think the best relationships are those that form from a place where neither person "needs" the other, but rather, both people would rather spend their time together than apart. I'd love it if she shared some of my interests (particularly travel) and pretended to tolerate my silly friends, but would also like to learn new things from her and meet new people that she chooses to spend her time with.
I've also decided that I'm going to run a raffle to make this online dating thing a little more fun. The winner of said raffle will receive a Cuisinart food processor. Every date with me earns you one raffle ticket. Talk about motivation to meet me!
