I want to be crystal clear. I have 2 little boys that are a big part of my life. That being said, I hope to meet someone who will share in the tremendous amount of live we have. I was lucky enough to have an amazing template for that...my parents are still deeply in love with each other and I appreciate their influence more and more each day.
-I was born and raised in New Orleans and therefore have a well-developed joie de vivre.
-My family and childhood friends are amazing...I am still very close to them. I feel their support and miss their laughter.
-After school in Texas, I moved out here and have held various positions in technology. I love what I do and, probably more importantly, whom I work with.
-As a kid, I was extremely competitive and fairly earnest but the successes and failures of life have taught me to take life and myself a lot less seriously.
-I have a Puritan work ethic about just about everything...the more I put into it, the more I get out of it.
-I find that learning about other cultures enables me to always question my beliefs and to keep things in perspective.
-I gravitate towards utilitarianism...I would never assume that the way I live my life is that way others should live theirs.
-I have the unique ability to find something good or humorous in any person or situation.
-I respect authority but will not hesitate to question it.
-I thoroughly enjoy making other people happy.
-I think your family says a lot about who you are. None are perfect, but what you take away is what's important.
-I enjoy opening doors for people, both literally and figuratively.
What I look for:
-Be who you are and say what you feel.
-You take me out of my rather analytical context...you light up the other hemisphere of my brain.
-You are uniquely intelligent (defined in so many ways), curious, honest, athletic, outdoorsy, family-oriented, social, affectionate and positive.
-You appreciate all of your senses but the sights, sounds and smells of the natural world make you especially happy.
-You have a special relationship with your father.
-You have at least one stuffed animal.
-You can effortlessly catch keys thrown to either hand.
-Regular exercise is important to me whether it's in the gym or outdoors.
-The mountains recharge me so make it out to the Sierras a few times a year.
-Food has always been a big part of my life, whether it's preparing it, eating it or talking about it. I love seafood, garlic and spicy.
-I can appreciate people who read fiction but I am hard-core non-fiction.
-I love ideas, mainly the unifying ones and have always preferred integrals to derivatives. I also love anything with whiskers, paws, wet noses or fur. I love little kids because I am one and college football because I grew up going to games with my dad.
