This is tough. I think that I'm a generally quiet person, reserved almost. My friends would describe me as honest, very hard working (almost too much) and loyal. I was in the navy for a few years and my sailor mouth occasionally get the better of me. I am definitely shy around new people until I get to know them.
I finished my first marathon (Chicago) just last weekend and personal fitness is important to me. I am also an fairly active Boy Scout leader. Lots of camping and working with the young teenagers. I work down on the meat market in the near west side, so I am an early riser.
I am hoping to find someone with similar interests including the outdoors, and traveling. The woman would need to be somewhat independent.
While I am not looking for anything to develop overnight, I am thinking more serious.
