I try to strike a balance between improving myself and enjoying life. Too much of one focus or the other can be dangerous. So I guess I'm looking for someone who has a similar outlook on life, someone who wants to have fun and be a better person. I hope the result will be two people who lead more fulfilling and joyful lives, but also challenging and significant lives, because of each other.
I enjoy spending meaningful time with friends (mostly just goofing off, actually); the Office parties at my place; cooking for people; playing music with friends; painting; camping and fishing. I'm a passionate artist with several artistic outlets. They are very important in my life and I feel that they even intertwine with my faith and spirituality.
I'm a very confident, direct, and assertive person, but this doesn't mean I have to have my own way. I'm a good listener who will respond sensitively to your needs, not just roll over you with my own agenda.
