I've been away from the dating world for over three years. I did some travelling, some volunteer work and some school. When I got back I realized I'm ready to find the right woman. I've never been a fan of talking to web sites, answering machines and tiny chat boxes. It's gonna take more than this to get to know me (and you) but I'm a patient guy. Ask me anything.
I'm energetic, adventurous, dashing, charming, heroic, passionate, devilishly good with my hands and incredibly modest... Well, sometimes I'm those things. Normally I'm actually a very mellow, genuine, easy-going guy. Imaginative, curious and a hopeful romantic. Sarcastic, generous, playful and an immensely affectionate person, I love to give attention as much as get it. I'm very much young at heart (and everywhere else too) but I can be a little old fashioned in some ways when it comes to things like honesty, integrity and treating a lady like a lady.
I'm a simple kind of guy, a nice guy and usually an introvert so it would be nice to meet a girl with some energy who can tempt me out of my shell once in a while but it's also nice to have someone who can stay in for a relaxed night here and there. For most of my life I've slipped under the radar. I don't tend to meet a lot of people and I'm single more often than not but it's time to change that.
I've always been an artist but recently I've begun to write and I really love it. I'm working on my first big story. I want to create characters and worlds kids (and adults) can escape into when they need a break from the real world.
I also love getting outdoors for things like running through the woods, rock climbing, kayaking, just being active out in nature. When I was a kid, I wanted to be a knight, marine biologist, paleontologist, explorer, illustrator and Batman. Some of those still apply.
I'm looking for someone who can be a bit of a dork sometimes but also knows when to be serious... A lady who is comfortable in both sneakers and heels, someone who can be both silly and steamy. Tattoos and piercings are not required but definitely not a problem. Mainly, I'm looking for someone who is sincere and authentic who can laugh at herself (and at me) and who will someday know me better than anyone else ever will.
What would I do for a first date? I'd keep it pretty easy-going, no pressure. Conversation over a drink, maybe dinner and see where the evening takes us.
