Well, I'm single and decided to give the online dating thing a try. Why not? I was born & raised in Southern Indiana for the first 24 years of my life. I served in the Marine Corps Reserves while attending Indiana University. In 2008 I decided to uproot and leave the midwest to start my career here in SD. The timing worked out pretty well.
I tend to smile and laugh a lot. My glass is half full. Life is too short to sweat the small stuff. Of course I know how to get serious when the time is appropriate but, I definitely like to have a good time. I have a great group of friends that I view as my extended family. Maybe it's a Midwestern thing.
My family is very important to me although they live 3 time zones away- I stay in close touch and travel back home at least twice a year.
I'm very driven and goal oriented. My friends & family will probably tell you that I can be very stubborn and hard headed at times. They would also tell you that I have a good heart though, and know how to compromise. I like to stay active in the gym. I love to swim and run or hike up in Mt. Laguna, Cowels, Torrey Pines, Sunset Cliffs. I try to balance working out with cardio. I used to mountain bike as a kid, it's definitely something I'd like to get back into. I would like to start kayaking again as well. It Seems like everyone is getting into the whole "crossfit" thing nowadays. I like it but, lifting weights is still an important part of my workout routine.
When it comes to going out, I prefer dive/sports bars but, like to mix it up sometimes. Once in awhile I'll let my friends drag me into a club so they can laugh at me trying to dance.
I like a little bit of a challenge when it comes to meeting women. I like a girl thats sweet but, knows how to keep me on my toes.
I love my job, particularly working at night. However, sometimes it's hard to get out much with my work schedule.
