ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

Over the past year I've learned to enjoy a bit of a more quiet life. I like to spend quality time with the woman I am dating, no matter what that may be...watching a show, cooking some dinner, having drinks on the patio, traveling, etc. I'm looking for a woman that just fits into my life. Someone who can be themselves around me. It sounds cliche, but I'm looking for a partner to be beside me no matter what life throws at us. When one of us has a problem, the other can be there to lend a hand or even just listen to the other person vent.

My last relationship changed my view on things a bit. I realized that I don't want a party life, but want to enjoy life together with someone. I've evolved quite bit in the last year and a half. I really re-evaluated my life and in turn have become a person that is ready to accept someone positive into my life. It's important to me to enjoy my time with someone. Having your own activities, hobbies, and interests are very important in a relationship. I myself am a big hockey fan, but that doesn't necessarily mean I need to be with someone who is the same way. Sharing each others activities allows you to grow and is lots of fun, most of the time. You probably won't ever see me taking up knitting, but I'm usually in on trying new things.

I've got a great group of friends and value people that have their own set of good friends. It sounds bad, but I cut some people out of my life that were a negative influence and/or kept bad company. It's the old saying of, "It's hard to soar with the eagles when surrounded by turkeys." My brother is my best friend, so family is really important to me as well.

Women ask me from time to time why I haven't been married. That's kind of an unfair question. I've been engaged before and had some long term relationships, but I think I wasn't quite ready. There are other reasons, but as I explored it, that is the heart of it. I've really tried to connect my head and my heart over the past year, so I think my next relationship will be the best so far. My thoughts on children are kind of open. If the right person comes along, I'm supportive of it. I'm not saying I must have children, just open to it.

I'm not a gigantic fan of emailing/texting/etc to get to know someone. I know it's kind of how this works, but I like to meet up for a drink or some appetizers as soon as possible just to see if there is a chemistry. So much is lost in electronic communications. I can come off a little nonchalant in person when it's a casual setting, from what I've been told. It's not that I don't care, I can just be comfortable around people very quickly. I try not to put up any kind of wall.

My personality can really vary. I'm very confident, without being too cocky about it. As I've gotten a little older, I can enjoy quiet time a little bit more. I'm a good listener most of the time. I can be silly, funny, serious, sarcastic, playful, and adventurous. Loyalty is unbelievably important to me. It is probably my defining characteristic. Society has just become so selfish, that loyalty seems to be something people have forgotten about. I drink beer a bit, but not too much. I like to enjoy a few on the weekends, but they're not necessary. I do not drink liquor any longer, as I've found that people around me that drink too much liquor are just not good to be around. Wasn't a big fan of it anyway, so it was super easy to give up. I have plenty of other personality traits, but you will have to find those out on your own....

Other stuff:
Since I work remote, I can work from anywhere. I allows me a bit of freedom that I have never had before. UPDATE: I travel on weekend getaways whenever I can. Working remote has been the best thing that could have ever happened to me...well, that and being able to take someone with me on Southwest flights free for the next year and a half minimum.

Pet Essay:

My dog Steve is a rescue dog. I got him, not knowing a he had been beaten and was scared to death of men. My aunt rents one of my houses and has taken him in as her own. I love him to death, but hate that he is afraid of me. Breaks my heart.

For fun:

I play hockey, go out with friends, attend events, etc. Anything that sounds interesting, I'll do it. Lately I've been riding my new beach cruiser around. Got into mountain biking as well. Want to learn German this year.

Favorite hot spots:

Las Vegas, Ft. Lauderdale, Cancun, Chicago, and any ski resort. I go about every 6 months (not really a big gambler, though I enjoy it) and just have the best time, no matter who I'm with. As far as Raleigh goes, Mitch's tavern in my favorite.

Favorite things:

Pizza at Lou Malnati's is my favorite food (Chicago) (Eating there tomorrow..excited!)
Anything at Mitch's tavern is a close #2
Movies? I like comedies..mostly to keep it upbeat
Ray Donovan is my favorite show right now.

Last read:

This week it's been something a bit different. I've been researching a speech for a conference next May in Las Vegas. Lot's of sites about malware and a bit about the erosion of privacy...as I post to a dating website.
