When we first meet, I think you will sense a genuine, driven, compassionate and fun-loving kind of guy. Friendly and approachable, I like to make others feel right at home when they are with me. I prefer to surround myself with upbeat, caring and genuinely good people who are authentic and have a sense of adventure.
I love to indulge my passion for all things adrenalin and am on my way to getting a license to jump out of a perfectly good airplane! I worked as a dive master in India and am going to Yosemite next month on a two-day photography workshop and am then meeting a good friend for a few days camping and climbing. At the same time I love to kick back, take a walk in the park or enjoy a lazy afternoon with friends at brunch and then catch a movie.
For all intents and purposes, my sense of adventure is usually on full throttle and when opportunity knocks to try something new and exciting, I’ll never pass it by. I tried Tango and Salsa recently and whilst “Come Dancing” is a million miles away, it was a lot of fun and something completely different to what I am used to. I guess I seek an equally enthusiastic partner who doesn’t mind wiping a bit of sweat off her brow and occasionally getting some dirt on her hands, but scrubs up well, enjoys getting dressed up and looks good in her “Sunday Best” when we go to Lincoln Center or out to dinner.
While I am driven and ambitious professionally and have a resume in my field of landscape architecture of which Mum is most proud, I am not an “all work and no play” kind of guy and strive to live my life in such a way that should it ever flash before my eyes, it will be worth watching. William Wallace had it right when he said that “every man dies but not every man really lives”.
Why am I on here? I hope for the same reason as you, to meet that someone special. To meet my best friend. I guess I also need a little help. I am useless at chatting girls up in bars and hate being set up by friends, that plus a really busy work schedule means I have found it hard to meet like minded souls. So here I am. While good looks and that undeniable physical attraction are necessary in a match, I also seek a woman of depth and substance, one whose quick wit and curious intellect allow for those conversations in which we may find ourselves lost for hours. She also employs her infectious sense of humor at every turn, from those simple chuckles and giggles to those all out, gut busting, tear streaming, “please administer me some oxygen now” kind of moments.
I admire a woman of passion and purpose, focused on goals, dreams and aspirations. She is independent and grounded by a solid circle of family and friends and has some kind of faith or spirituality. In return I can offer you a loving and fun family, albeit in England, and as a partner, I’m honest and compassionate and have an easy-going nature. I don’t sweat the small stuff and embrace each moment.
So, if any of this resonates with you, let’s make a connection and see what happens. If it helps any, I have great manners and can still see my belly button when I look down!
