At the risk of sounding cliché, I consider myself to be very down to earth. I am not materialistic and consider myself to live more practically. I suppose living on my own for the past 15 years has taught me to be. I try to live a healthy lifestyle by staying active and not eating junk all the time. I am in no way a fitness junkie or health guru. I just have seen the effects of what not taking care of your body can do so I try to balance it all out. In fact, I really don’t enjoy going to the gym. I would much rather burn calories doing something fun outdoors like bike riding, playing ball or hiking. I am naturally an affectionate person with people once I get to know them, not so much when meeting someone on a first date.
I have a pretty large family that is very important to me including 7 nieces and nephews. My parents have been married for 47 years and are still living in the house I grew up in. I grew up here in Orange County (Fountain Valley to be exact). One sister lives in the Dallas area so I usually visit there a couple times a year. Everyone else still lives here in OC. My family has got its issues like most, but they are mine and I love them nonetheless.
I am hard-working. I have a successful career and a fun side-business which is teaching me how to cook. :-) I believe in living unselfishly and I try to give back or volunteer when I can. I have volunteered at food banks, preparing meals for the homeless at Thanksgiving, etc.
Not all of my pictures are super recent but they are representative of who I am. I have included pictures from traveling and doing other things I enjoy. (The picture overlooking Laguna Beach is the most recent taken last month.)
I prefer to meet someone who lives fairly close to me. I have tried the long distance thing and it eventually gets difficult for a relationship to grow. With the traffic in Southern California, distance is relative and sitting in traffic after a long day at work on a regular basis to build a relationship is just not something I am looking to do.
All in all, I am looking for someone who is settled and ready for a relationship. It is important for me to find someone who takes care of himself, has a positive attitude/good personality/funny, is family-oriented and has a good value system. Thanks for taking the time to read this far. Good luck in your search!
