Hi there. Thanks for stopping by. Describe myself? Alright... there are some things I will never be good at, and I'm pretty sure this is one of them.
I guess I'll start with a pile of random adjectives and statements… (in no particular order) I would say..genuine, caring, respectful, responsible, honest, sometimes an over-thinker, generous, aware, and personable fit pretty well. I have definitely been known to have a propensity for silly/dorky…. After all, laughing is pretty fun, isn't it? I think its super important to be true to your word. I don't take a whole lot personally. I tend to see most criticisms as a way to learn to be a better person, as opposed to letting them offend or upset me. I realize that in the past I have held on a bit too strong to some ideals that may have limited my experience, so I try to keep an open mind about everything. I am very introspective and don't ever expect to stop learning about myself. I tend to be a very resourceful person and a good problem solver. I'm pretty handy around the house, too.
I am a very curious person by nature. I love to learn just about anything… science, history, psychology, philosophy, etc. I especially like new discoveries that challenge previously accepted findings.
Things I enjoy: animals, travel, photography/cinematography, guitar, scuba diving, snowboarding, camping, bicycles, reading, learning, kicking around on my longboard, yoga, lazy days, eating good food, building, designing, good company/conversation, experimental cooking (it's a hit or miss process, but when it hits, it's pretty damn good). Evidentially, I'm pretty fond of commas, too.
What I am attracted to: intelligence, creativity, compassion, appreciation, a true heart, awareness, honesty (both with themselves and others), a sense of humor, and a sense of adventure.
I truly believe you can't force chemistry. It's either there, or it's not. I am looking for a true connection that runs deeper than common interests or specific traits. That being said, although this is a dating site, most of us are presumably here to increase our chances of finding true love. Communication doesn't automatically mean we are required to pursue romance. Making a new friend isn't a bad thing in my book, so I like to keep things light and pressure free. Since an amazing friendship is the best foundation for an amazing relationship, it doesn't seem like a bad way to start things out. Maybe we could start by having a coffee or taking a walk and see how we hit it off? If this sounds good to you, shoot me an email.
