Well, let's see... Over the past few years, my perspective on life has shifted dramatically. I've endured life experiences that have been very difficult to deal with, but as the smoke settles, I emerge with a smile and a refined sense of myself. I am so grateful for the lessons I have learned that have taught me be true to myself and have led me down a completely different path in life. And the support from friends and family has been so instrumental in helping me grow as a person. Without that, who knows where I'd be.
I've changed my line of work, and have made space for and given a lot more attention to the passions in my life. Now that I've got a better idea of how I want to live, I'm ready to meet new people.
I care very much about fitness. I am constantly learning so much about how the body works, and how to restore its balance through all kinds of exercises and therapies. I have been making significant changes to my body and love to use my understanding to help others make changes in theirs. I love meeting others who are as passionate about exercise, and I am definitely looking for someone who shares this idea.
Exercise... Well, I do it nearly every day, but you'll never find me in a gym. Lots of yoga, bar work, inversion, running, and sports. Man, do I love playing sports. Basketball's my favorite, but my ankles don't agree, and as a result I don't get out all that much anymore. I have been trying to get out on the tennis courts more, but that just hasn't been happening.
I like to maintain a healthy diet, and am fascinated by how different foods affect how my body feels. I like messing around with supplements, and am interested in getting a better hold on nutrition at some point.
I've definitely spent my fair share of time partying, and while I do still go out from time to time and have some drinks, it's something that has been steadily phased out of my life. I love going out and doing things, but I also enjoy relaxing just as much. And I do like my sleep. Big time.
Other fun things... baseball games, live music, backpacking, fishing, bowling. I love animals and have always had lots of pets.
Music.. well, classic rock definitely takes the cake. My top 5 would probably be something like Pink Floyd, Neil Young, Dire Straits, Bruce Springsteen, and The Kinks.. I can get behind most rock, folk, some country and metal. Not big on other genres, but I can deal with just about anything.
So, what am I looking for? A heart of gold? Genuine, loyal, kind, someone who shares a lot of the same interests as me. A best friend. Someone who cares more than most about fitness and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Someone to go backpacking with. Someone who likes to look nice, but isn't materialistic. Perhaps somebody with a bit of a spiritual side. And so much more. I have a pretty good idea of what I'm after, and I'm not in a hurry to rush things.
