Hello ladies, I asked a confidant how they'd describe me, and they said, "A wonderful combination of street smarts and wit, creativity, authenticity - An overall well rounded man." Apparently I'm one of the few who actually goes through someone's profile before reaching out to introduce myself.
I adore deep conversation where you 'connect' on multiple levels, and I get along with people of all backgrounds. I enjoy diy stuff where ever possible (my last major project was replacing the suspension on my car), and I've been told that I provide a wonderful feeling of security when cuddling - I guess you could say that I'm great with my hands ;-). I also find painting, writing, photography, and other creative endeavors therapeutic.
I'm originally from Vancouver, so I've enjoyed skiing our local hills. I've been caught in a few storm's, literally and figuratively, but I look at the best in every situation and my positive attitude is contagious, and I appreciate spiritual growth. I adore playing with my niece's, and watching them burn off their excess energies playing amongst themselves, but I don't have any little one's of my own. Camping and fly fishing are how I "disconnect & reset". I thrive on camaraderie, belly laughs, interesting stories, and I'm a proponent of mentorship and personal development. As an artist who got into business I appreciate how different minds work.
I'm a decent cook and like to BBQ year round.. maybe we can make dinner together sometime? I also enjoy driving and I must be pretty good at it because my friends ask me to show them things behind the wheel, and I always have the music on when I'm on the road.
What sets me apart? Well, to start, I don't smoke anything, or drink any alcohol, I don't watch sports except maybe plays of the week/year and some Olympics, and I'm not into gaming. I'm one of the guy's who really prefers the personal touch of hearing a person's voice during a conversation.. I'm turned off by the impersonal interaction of back & forth text-messaging which conversation context gets lost in.. the silver-lining there is that I'm ultra-low risk for distracted driving :)
There's much more to you and I than can be written in this box. I'm not interested in a pen pal. I'm looking to connect, talk on the phone, meet face to face, and forging a relationship if we click - hopefully a long term one as I'm not interested in a FWB/ONS situation. I'm hoping to find 'the one', and I sincerely hope you find what you're looking for as well. Please, don't be apprehensive... drop me a line if you're still reading this :)
ps - I don't bother with IM.. my computer doesn't jive with it.
