I've managed to make a life for myself that I really enjoy. I am usually surrounded by close friends and family, which keep me grounded. Family comes first and is the reason I ended up back in the midwest for a stretch of time. I just recently moved to Colorado and like my new Denver life so far. My job is really challenging and I enjoy it so much that I don't mind going to work every morning. I work in rehab, but think more Christopher Reeves, less Lindsay Lohan. I completely value my independence and look for the same thing in a guy. I like to have separate lives that intersect at just the right points. Support and trust and common interests are important, but I don't think I'll ever be able to be totally attached at the hip 100% of the time. I'm looking for someone who can be as confident as I am with a situation like that. If you can teach me how to ski, make me laugh with a sense of humor like Ricky Gervais, and open a door every now and again, we should meet.
