It is difficult for me to give a valid description of myself in a text box.
Well, here's my best shot. I am your average, unique man. Yes, I am even filled with oxymorons and contradictions at times. Living in a college town keeps me young but it makes me feel old. I thirst for knowledge. I love to travel every chance I get/ When financially possibly, go to the airport and buy a flight to a random city for a few days. During a vacation, I will spend all day at history museums or something "equally boring" by most people's standards. At night I will go to a random dive bar near my hotel, introduce myself and get to know a few local people. I like meeting people, swapping stories and having a good laugh with anyone.
If nothing else, I am original. I can lock myself in a library and read for a full weekend or go to my river in a speedo and be goofy. Wherever I end up between the extremes, I will have fun. Just because I can be goofy and crazy does not mean it affects my goals. I am very driven and competitive but I try to keep everything in perspective. Work hard, play harder and not take life to serious. I believe in driving hard and getting ahead so I can enjoy myself. It may be because I have and easy going and just generally enjoy the ride of life and live without regrets.
What am I doing on here?
I am not sure honestly. I know that is odd to say. I am not 'looking' for any serious relationship because I am skeptical about the online thing. At the same time, I certainly wouldn't run from a relationship if it developed.
I am at a point in my life where I am ready for something serious, but I do not want to force it. I want to get to know someone and see if there is a connection. If there is a compatibility, thats great. If there is not, I am not interested in dating someone for a while without any chance for a future. It seems like a waste of time.
I also am not looking for the other end of the "romantic" spectrum.
Romantic or not, I am always looking to get to know new interesting people. Someone to grab a coffee or beer with and hang out.
A friend made the recommendation for me to check this out, and I am a curious guy so I'm giving it a shot.
