I have to be honest. I never thought I would go on to online dating. I would always make fun of it, but now realize just how hard it is to meet people in real life. I'm not going to go the bar every night and try to get lucky. And at work, there are only 6 other women in my office. 5 of them are all old enough to be my mother. And all are married.
You might not think looking at me, but I am a pretty shy guy and take a little bit to warm up. Don't take it personally. This may have stemmed from growing up in a Christian household... or the fact that I was pretty much the nerdy type in high school and college.
I grew up in Pennsylvania just outside of Philly in the suburbs. I am pretty old-fashioned when it comes to dating: I never try and push things, I try to be as polite as possible, and always make sure I don't move too fast.
I am a graphic designer and love every minute of it. Having a job where you get paid to be creative and make things "look good" is best thing I could have hoped for. It may get stressful at times, but I could never get tired of it.
If I ever do get stressed, though, I always have my family and friends to fall back on. I am the oldest of 6 kids, so I am never really too alone (whether I like it or not).
I love being active and trying to live a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle. I love jogging outside on crisp autumn mornings or cool summer nights. I'm not the greatest athlete, but I always love making the effort to stay healthy. Weight training is a huge passion of mine as well.
I would love to find someone who has a passion for trying new things -- whether it be new food, new places, or new activities. Someone who loves to be active but also appreciate just spending the night in and watching some horrible reality TV with some junk food. I believe everything in moderation -- I am not a total health nut; part of a healthy lifestyle is knowing when to go ahead and "cheat" every now and then.
I am rambling now, so enough about me. I want to find someone who appreciates finding the fun in life and not afraid of keeping an open and creative mind. Maybe you could be that girl...?
