This is certainly an "outside the box" move for me. At this point in my life, I am completely open to settling down and creating a great life with someone special. For me, it hasn't been finding someone for me, it has been finding the right someone for me.
The old cliche' "work hard, play hard" fits me perfect!
I love my career, but in no way let it run my life. I've been lucky enough to find a career that allows me a lot of freedom, while also allowing me financial independence- two great things! I am a business suit by day and casual by night kind of man. I am very easy-going, no drama man, although far from a pushover. I certainly have the attitude that life is too short and I try not to let things bring me down- think ultimate optimist. I want to find someone to share all of the great things life has to offer. Someone that doesn't expect perfection, but knows what she wants. Independence is intriguing to me, however I do believe in chivalry and want my match to depend on me when needed.
In my spare time, you will usually find me by the beach, being active outdoors playing sports or simply enjoying who I am with, no matter what we are doing. Travel is a must, there's nothing like that feeling of finding my new "favorite place". I want someone that can appreciate a great fine dining night out as well as a flip-flop wearing rendezvous to the local farmers market. I enjoy weekends exploring a great new spot, but also love a quiet night at home cooking a great dinner and relaxing.
All in all, I am a man's man that is independent by nature, but is as loyal as they come to people I respect and care for. I am care free and fun, yet responsible and grounded. I am very spontaneous and have been told I do possess the right balance of edginess and the boy next door type qualities. I walk through life with keen confidence in who I am and what I stand for, although I am far from arrogant. I am passionate and affectionate by nature, and feel it's hard to beat that intense connection!
