A lot of my friends would describe me as down to earth and quiet, but willing to open up once I get to know you. Once I do open up, I tend to talk about how I'm feeling and what makes me tick. Being honest about who I am and what I'm feeling is important to me. I want the same in my mate, too.
I'm a big soccer fan. I try to catch a soccer game whenever I can. Playing a pickup soccer game is the main way I release stress and get exercise. I also like hockey, baseball, and football. One of the items on my bucket list is to visit every MLB ballpark and collect the hat of the home team as a souvenir. So far I have just over a dozen.
I enjoy hiking and camping, but nothing beats putting the two together by backpacking several miles to a primitive campsite. I like traveling and exploring new places, but I'd rather explore a new national or state park than a new city. When we go out on a date, I'd more likely plan time for us to be alone in a coffee shop or on a long walk than take you to a place with a large crowd.
I enjoy listening to music. My musical tastes are eclectic: Skillet, Fireflight, Lecrae, Shai Linne, Casting Crowns, Third Day, Mozart, Bruckner, Wagner, George Strait, Garth Brooks, and Brad Paisley. I get a good laugh from watching Monty Python or America's Funniest Videos, but I tend to spend a lot more time watching a history or science documentary to feed my insatiable curiosity.
My Catholic faith is an important part of my life. I hope my mate and I can help each other grow in our faith. We're both far from perfect and are willing to admit we often fall short of where we want to be.
So, that's a little about me. I'd love to hear from you if you think we might be a good match. What do we have to lose?
