I'm currently in the active Army but plan to transfer to the Reserves this summer. Outside of my professional life, a lot of my energy goes into clearing and developing four acres that I have in southern Indiana near my grandparent’s home. My hobbies and interests fluctuate rather heavily over time and based on the season. Usually outdoors activities such as hiking, archery, and kayaking in the summer and Netflix, my kindle (Which has effectively replaced my storage unit of books), and online gaming in the winter. I really enjoy gastropubs, craft beers, and interesting local eateries. In the near future, I'm planning to take up brewing or winemaking. That is all pretty dry, but I am unsure how to describe myself without sounding like a narcissist or Ben Stein. I went with the latter.
I am looking for an intelligent women in her mid 20's to early 30's who is in the midst of pursuing her own ambitions: Has some interests in common with me, laidback, loyal, positive, practical, and wants a family in the near future. I like people who are simultaneously whimsical and serious. Wisdom is underrated as much as sanity is over rated.
I identify with entirely too many of those personality options. Do people really want to pigeonhole themselves like that into a single label?
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Depends upon any common interests that we share. I attempt to be creative, but sometimes that can obscure the purpose of dating: Enjoy the company of another and learn more about them. Dinner seems to be a standard first date for some very good reasons in that regard.
