I am an active person who enjoys all things outdoors, but also has a streak of homebodyness (if that's a word). I will be in the mountains skiing most weekends in the winter and climbing them in the summer. I also enjoy intellectual pursuits and am the type of person who would rather read the “The Economist” than “Maxim”. I am very committed to education and life long learning. I believe you can’t grow as person unless you have new experiences and push your boundaries. I have traveled a lot and plan to continue to do so. Nepal is the most amazing place I have ever been and can't wait to go back. I have traveled in Asia, the Middle East, Australia, South Pacific and Central America.
I think good friends are very important and still regularly spend time with friends I have known since childhood, even though we all live in different states. I believe honesty and loyalty will take a person far in life, as well as a sense of humor (especially about yourself).
I am looking for someone who is honest and straightforward, a little adventurous and comfortable with themselves. You are an independent person who is emotionally secure and financially stable. I am seeking an intellectual equal. You are sure of where you are in life and where you are going. You had a healthy childhood and are close with your family. Family is very important to me and I am very close with mine. You can tolerate a little sarcasm and can let your hair down a little for a night on the town.
I am also somewhat of an old fashioned romantic and appreciate someone who appreciates that. If you are someone who is in touch with themselves emotionally and intellectually then I think we may get along well. Maturity goes a long way but sometimes it is also fun go out and misbehave. Mostly just be real and don't be shy!
