My mind set as of late : http://toprightnews.com/?p=2872 Mike Rowe dispenses life advice, including dating; I concur completely!
"Lean too much on the approval of others and it becomes a bed of thorns".
I am my own person, liberated from the good opinion of others; i am a confident and self-assured man, yet humble. It's all about a happy balance on life I think.
Somewhere we are taught that "true love" should be effortless with dreamy naïveté. I couldn't say what an ideal relationship looks like, but I can say for certain, that all of the couples I know who have been together for a significant duration and remained in love, worked for it and continue to work on it. Let me be direct and say, I'm not a quitter, and my life partner shouldn't be either; I am in this for the long haul. ( and yes I am looking for a relationship, the LTR type).
I'm not in to playing mind-games or games for that matter. I say what I mean and do as I say. Bar-scene is where the egos go for stroking, though I must admit I like dancing. I am a genuine guy, no need for facades, they say just be who you are and the rest comes easy.
Hobbies: always learning about everything via reading, documentaries, museums, art, sociology, pop culture, big into music and comedy and also meeting new friends.
I am a very sociable person one on one, and I fit in nicely in my field which is Marketing and Sales. I am fortunate to say that I work with a great team of MBA's, PHD's and MD's(Im always learning). My industry is Healthcare.
I like mountain biking, playing wiffle ball with friends, road trips. I like doubling down on 9's vs 4-6 on Blackjack, and concerts/shows are always a blast. I am conscious of staying healthy but have priorities that preclude me from pursuing an 11% body fat for washboard abs. Balance is my motto, and enjoy a drink of wheatgrass every morning and yoga at night. I have inherited my fathers' wicked sense of humor and still think that The 3 stooges are the Bomb! But Bill Hicks will always be the best comedian IMO.
I am a happy man, jovial, content yet ambitious. I have many goals, and one of them being to one day create a non-profit org (been in my head for 10 yrs now). I've come to realize that the best way for me to be and remain joyful is by helping others. I also enjoy the finer things in life, but I truly am aware that the best things in life are free.
I'd love to meet a gal that is cool with going on a hike in the Hollywood hills, but/and not need to be in the "Hollywood scene." A girl with depth, but as the quote goes "Genius is of small use to a woman who does not know how to do her hair", so someone who cleans up nicely for a night on the town. Your last name needn't be Einstein, but a learned woman is sooo attractive to me.
I try to have a non-judgmental outlook and attitude. Life is sweeter this way, and it helps in maintaining an optimistic frame of mind.
My ipod is my friend :) and we have a standing date a few times a week @ the gym. I listen to Pandora like it's going out of style! I have a song for every task I do and currently bouncing my head to Nightmares on Wax. All genre of music are good in my book, mostly contemporary. I don't watch sports, I'd rather play them. I watch what I put into my body: food. I like the outdoors, summers, traveling, and talking with friends.
This profile thing makes me feel like It's going to be graded, so I put some thought into it... Pass, Fail, ahh wth, we are just auditing this class anyhow.
first date, something simple as long as we both are comfortable (it's all about getting a vibe anyhow so my surroundings are not really critical.)
ps. if i know you via Facebook, and we are friends...lets not make things awkward and don't hit me up for dating... we are obviously in the friends zone. Peace
If you are consciously or subconsciously trying to "date-up", then please wake up and don't view dating as a means to acquire anything more than possibly a sincere and genuine friendship.
If you wanna order something that's on this menu, or wanna know more about this dish, speak up and let your voice be heard: Holla!
