As a guy who is passionate about a lot of things (ie. ran for office, built a business, created a video studio in my home, etc), I think its wonderful to spend time relaxing. I am driven to get ahead and experience an exceptional life, but its the day-to-day I focus on now. I believe in "making time". I take a couple overseas trips each year, love trying new restaurants, especially foreign foods. I'm active in a non-profit that seeks to improve education and like to go dancing at "underground" dance clubs once or twice a month. I read hard-core science articles everyday and can debate the news, but I also crack jokes constantly. It's hard to know me via an online profile, my personality does not lend itself to a quick and easy, "oh yeah, I know his type" box. I do consider myself an intellectual and have little room in my life for mysticism. Warning.. I'm a bit of a gross-a-phobe. I'm not a full on germaphobe, but please, no shoes in the house or purses on the bed. It grosses me out.
I've gone sky diving and bungee jumped off the highest bridge in the world (66 stories) but beware, I do "geek out". I've taken 5 classes this year including Chemistry, particle physics, quantum mechanics, etc. Right now I am taking linguistics. If you like me and we start to chat, there are a million photos of me and tons of information to do "online research" before meeting in real life. I meet with clients and employees everyday, and can work a room at a business mixer, so I am pretty social (extroverted) but am quite informal in my close relationships (introverted). I am looking to have a family with someone that is intelligent, authentic and grounded. If you have a great sense of humor and are open to trying new things, you should contact me. If we click, share common values and you laugh at 62.3% of my jokes (50.1% of my dry puns), we might have something!
It simply doesn't matter so long as there is conversation. We could be eating $1.50 Costo hot dogs on a plastic bench and feel like we're cruising the Mediterranean at sunset with champagne glasses in our hands wearing cotton white shirts as the breeze gently pounds ripples in our clothes, pushing our hair back and exposing the gleam of the sun mirroring off our sunglasses. Yeah, its a little over the top, but you get the idea. I'm looking for a substantive relationship and you should be too.
