Update: I'm a cancer survivor. I just recently had surgery and it's 100% gone. Still healing but I have a positive outlook that things will be just fine. I know I'm just fine. I will have a scar on my chin and right side under my jaw line as well as my left forearm from this but other than that, my looks are the same. Oh and my goatee is gone.
I am not good at talking about myself and I think I read this in almost everyone's first sentence here. I work hard and play hard. I am always busy but will make time for the right one. My friends and co-workers often ask why I'm still single because I am a nice guy. Simple, I will not settle, but I am ready to settle down with the one that is perfect for me. She's got to be out there! I do have a lot to offer, but I would rather someone see that instead of me having to tell you about it. I am a very affectionate person. I am a gentleman and am trying to keep chivalry alive. I am a giver and believe in paying it forward. I wear my heart on my sleeve and am a very honest person, brutally honest at times. But don't let that fool you for being a pushover. I will give a lot without asking anything in return. I am very handy around the house and have a lot of projects planned for mine. I'm a perfectionist when it comes to things I am fixing, building, cooking etc...
I love all types of outdoor activities which include, but are not limited to, backpacking, hiking, camping, boating, traveling, volleyball and much more. I am a very active person with a lot of energy. I am looking for someone who would enjoy these types of activities as much as I do and maybe introduce me to a few I have not experienced. I am looking for a woman with a high energy level and the curiosity and courage to come along for the ride and try new things with me. I also love being spontaneous, nothing like a last minute road trip! I also love going to see live concerts, music is a very important part of my life. I like too many types and too many bands to list but live music is my favorite. I like to watch sports but prefer it to be at the game instead of on TV, though I will settle for that at times.
My intention is to find someone that has her life together and is looking for someone to share life's adventures with. I would like to find someone to build a friendship with and a true connection that could turn into a long term relationship.
And I'll end this with one of my favorite quotes. "My goal in life is to be as good of a person my dog already thinks I am." -Anonymous

Anything where we can talk and get to know each other. Something active is good as well. No movies.
