"Meeting you was fate, becoming your friend was a choice, but falling in love with you I had no control over."
I'm looking to find the real thing, and the closest I envision to it is falling in love with a best friend. Could that be the way you approach it too? So, because my approach is friends first, then a first date/meeting with me is about as easy-going as can be ----whether a formal or casual event, It's all about fun, laughter, keeping it real and genuine.
WHO I AM: I'm self sufficient, I'm loyal and I'm loving----to start with what I believe are a few of the more important qualities to have. I also believe balance is one of the most important ingredients to any lasting relationship. The best relationships are the ones where both persons are able to offer balance, and the ways in which I feel I contribute balance to a relationship are with such things as: knowing that the art of good communication involves being a good listener, or balancing being gentle, but not being a pushover, being affectionate without being smothering; being protective but not possessive. I know, for example. that I am a realist by nature in times that require being decisive in a pinch, but I also maintain a compassionate, creative and more sentimental side in the moments when I can take life slow. I'm clean cut, I try to keep a neat & organized home, but yet I'm not insane about it either -- I am a guy after all, who will still kick his legs up over the arm of the couch, or takes pride in successfully making the occasional three-pointer in the garbage can while cooking. Balance. l also live to be daring or adventurous in many aspects of life (to not be is not truly living, right?), but I balance this with also being sensible and not reckless about it. I have a solid and stable career that I enjoy and take seriously, but I maintain a sense of humor that keeps me (and aims to keep anyone around me) from taking life too seriously. And I balance my career with personal time that I like to fill with: spending time with friends, oudoor activites, hiking, grilling out, I love movies, reading, going to shows, and I have a love for writing (a wanna be novelist) and I real passion for travel. Add sharing and romance as an underlying themes to any of these things, and life is all the better, right? Dating is fine, to hold you over, but I'm looking for that right one to share life with.
MY LOVING & COMPATIBLE SIGNIFICANT OTHER WOULD BE: A woman who enjoys things at least moderately active as well (hiking, camping, tennis and the sort), where we can at least keep each other active, recognizing the importance of it to good health, as well as the fun. Also she enjoys: movies, plays, museums, and travel (plenty of travel), and while a desire for sharing in and seeing new and exciting places, also perfectly content with casual time together at home too. And finally, she can introduce me to new, exciting things as well. My largest incompatibilities: Please no smokers, cats worshipers, politically-extreme liberal mindsets, tattoos, strange piercings, or drugs. Middle of the road, or anything leaning slight conservative nature is a plus. I'm not political outspoken myself, I just find the extremes unattractive. Dog lover is a plus. When it comes to being religious, I don't mind if she is, if she doesn't mind that I'm not. Education: Just general, all-around knowledge is nice... capable of conversations on pretty much anything, worldly topics, occasional deep philosophical topics too is always nice. Also nerdy, shy and brainy -- to me -- is attractive on a woman, but not at all a must ;) (so don't be shy to write, if you are). ;)
If you you feel we could relate in a number of ways, then I look forward to hearing from you -- and getting a chance to see the things that make YOU unique. Thanks for reading.
