Being active and staying fit is important to me. I'm into cross fit and weight training, and would love to find someone who is focused on things that keep his mind and body in shape. I just started getting into rock climbing...right now I'm going indoors, but want to start some outdoor trips when it gets warmer out. I'm also very interested in nutrition and the effect food has on my body...I enjoy eating out, and trying new types of foods. My friends, family, and coworkers would describe me as someone who is very positive and always looking at the upside...I'm also pretty low key, even tempered, and don't like to make things more dramatic than they need to be. I'm definitely the person my friends call when they want to try some new adventure. My family is very important to me, and I have close friendships both inside and outside my family.
I'm looking for someone who is a mix of even tempered, good natured, passionate, extremely intelligent, highly physical, and an explorer. A man who challenges me and shares things with me, but has his own interests as well. A person who cares about other people, and will give his time to helping others. Most importantly, someone who sees the positives in life, takes responsibility for himself, and is happy where he is and where he is going.
There are a few things that I've found are really key to me being compatible with someone. The first one is how active you are. The things I do for fun usually involve activity...hiking, 5ks, mud runs, kayaking, rock climbing, sky diving...or something new that I haven't tried. I work out so that I can be more active; to me, it's part of my lifestyle, a lot of fun, a stress reliever, a community I'm part of...not something I force myself to do. Don't get me wrong, there is nothing better after a long day of hiking or climbing than going home, taking a shower, getting comfy, ordering some food and watching a movie or TV series or reading a good book. The second is your level of independence and satisfaction with your life; I live by myself and have for years, have a great job that I really enjoy, lots of interests, friends, and a pretty full schedule. I'd like someone who also has a lot going on in his life...some of it that he wants to share with me, and some that he likes to do on his own. There are, of course, other preferences that I have, but those two are probably the most important to compatibility.
