I’m an easy-going and low maintenance person. I try to enjoy the little things and find humor in everyday life. I work hard, and take pride in whatever I do.
One of my biggest improvement areas is my weight. I have gained a lot of weight over the years, and am not necessarily happy with it. However, I am currently actively trying to rectify that by exercising and getting healthy. I'm never going to be skinny, but my goal is to get healthy. Obviously, I'd want to be around people who not only accept me for who I am, but also support my attempt at a positive change. My immediate goal is to just start eating healthier, and general exercise (walk-to-run, cycling, core strength, 3 - 5K runs).
I have a strong sense of family, and am very close to my own. My partner should be the same, and realize that the important things in life cannot be bought with money. I’m looking for someone who knows how to laugh. The most attractive thing I find in a guy is his sense of humor. If you can make me laugh and cheer me up, then you’re in like Flynn. However, I also need someone who has a serious and sensitive side, and is willing to share their feelings and also listen to my own.
I spend a lot of time indoors and in front of a computer for my job. So, I need to get out into the great outdoors in my free time. This can be as simple as walking around the neighborhood, a trip to the beach, or riding my bike. That’s not to say that I don’t like to relax and take it easy indoors, as well. I love to hang out and watch movies, play some board games, go out to dinner, or just talk.
Music moves me. I find it to be both expressive and therapeutic. I appreciate most kinds of music (except country and metal). I find myself perpetually stuck in the 90’s, and have an affinity for alternative rock/pop. I love live music and going to concerts. I feel like it really brings the music to life.
I love exploring new places and traveling around the country. In particular, I am a huge fan of the road trip. To cheesily jack an Aerosmith lyric: “Life’s a journey, not a destination”. There’s just something I love about spending an extended period of time with close friends or family in a car, exploring a new part of the country. Not only do you get to see new and exciting landscapes, but it’s a great opportunity to spend some quality time with loved ones (whether it’s deep conversations, or singing songs at the top of our lungs). It can be very adventurous, especially, if you’re armed with just a car, a GPS, and no set-in-stone agenda. Most of my road trips revolve more around hiking adventures and national park exploration. The Southwest owns me. It’s amazingly beautiful with its mountains, deserts, caves, canyons, arches, lakes, and Native American history and culture.
