Do not let yourself be bothered by the inconsequential. One has only so much time in this world. So devote it to the work and the people most important to you, to those you love and things that matter. One can waste half a lifetime with people one doesn’t really like, or doing things when one would be better off somewhere else. I would like to be able to tell you that I live my life by this philosophy at all times but that is not the case. Still, I think that there is alot of wisdom in those words and they sometimes help me to put things in perspective. If you were to ask, most people who know me would probably tell you that I am a really great guy. I like to think that that is true. I try to live my life doing what I know is right and treating people the way that I would like for them to treat me. I am by no means perfect (who is?), but I can sleep with myself every night and look at myself in the mirror every morning and still like the man who looks back.
I have lived here in Ellensburg, Wa for nine years now, much longer than I had originally intended. For the past eight and a half years I have managed the local cab company, a fun and interesting job to say the least. I just graduated from CWU in December, 2008 with a BS degree in Accounting. I am not where I feel that I should be at this point in my life but I continue to move in that direction.
My kids are my world so if you are one of those people who view children as "baggage" then you should probably quit reading this now. They are my reason for breathing and my inspiration and motivation for everything that I do. Still there is room in my life and in my heart for someone else.
People call me a hopeless romantic and I guess that I would have to agree. I still believe in forever and in true love, you know, the Romeo and Juliette kind but without the tragic ending. In fact, I would have to say that I believe that finding, giving and recieving love has to be the purpose of life. Yeah, I know, kinda corny right?
I guess I am looking for someone still capable of love and of loving as deeply as I do. Someone who like me, still believes in forever. I am looking for someone who wants to build a life together rather than someone who wants a life provided for her. I am not looking for someone who is perfect, just someone who is perfect for me, and I for her. I don't ask for much: honesty, faithfulness, loyalty, devotion, affection, things like that. I am looking for a partner, a best friend, a lover and a soul mate, someone who is as passionate about life and love as I am and someone who won't run at our first little arguement.
Well, that's me in a nutshell, hope I haven't scared you off.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Well, here is how I look at it: Somewhere out there is my Juliet, my sleeping beauty, my Maria. I believe that we date in search of the one, and when we find her we stop searching! The best one can hope for from a first date is a lifetime of love and happiness. The worst is a lifelong friend. Win/win situation, right?
