I believe that life is too short and that it should be lived with a smile. I avoid negative people at all costs and surround myself by others who know how to work hard and play hard. I love sports (football, hockey, volleyball, running, weightlifting). I think it's important for a relationship to be balanced and that friendship is just as important as chemistry. I've worked in the field of education for 9 years now. I've since moved into an administrative role and have to admit that I miss teaching kids at times. A road trip always puts a smile on my face. I am looking for someone who is also balanced and loves to laugh. Someone who values family, friendship, and the moment. Ultimately, I am giving in and trying the online thing as it is a venue that I haven't tried yet. Who knows what will happen...... I'd like to think of myself as a passionate and loyal person. With that being said, I'm happy with where I've gone in my life and am looking to meet someone who I can share life experiences with.
