I don't hike very much, but I do fly. I also speed around very quickly in my car. My idea of great exercise is going for a nice long walk.... Like when my sister in Vancouver took me for a 2 km walk in circles during this Christmas holiday to get to a two block away fine Italian restaurant (however, she cuts men's hair the absolute best and has been recruited by Crew to be one of their regional representatives). I have refined interests, but enjoy the simple things in life. I can be easy going and a bit intense. I'm comfortable in both situations. I have a big heart, but will not tolerate any attempt of being controlled (overtly or subtly). I pick up on subtle nuances (maybe not nearly as much as you wonderful ladies), but I do get a lot of these dynamics - whether I'll let you know or not. ;-) I'm a thinker and people typically pick up on that very quickly, but I understand that there's more to life than just that. I also love to have fun!
I believe that life is a gift, no matter what situation you're in and it's taken me most of my life to realize what I knew as a preschooler. The most important people in my life are my children and family; which brings me to why I'm here on this site. Are you looking for a man that is strong in character, yet compassionate? Are you looking for a man that is well connected both in business and socially? Are you looking for a man that is not superficial? Are you looking for a man that is respectable and you can respect and love? Are you looking for a man that can see past the flurry of present circumstances to a better point in the near future and will persevere to obtain that goal? Are you looking for a man that can be low key as well as first class?
I have tended in the past to not reveal my real strengths seeking to know the heart of the person I'm addressing. Unfortunately, I have been disappointed more often than not due to predisposed perceptions and expectations. So.... I'm putting a bit more of me out there for your perusal and am trusting that a wonderful, attractive woman can see more of the value of who I am. She must be prepared to dig deeper to discover more of the personal treasures of who I am, as I will most certainly be digging deeper to discover the treasures of who she is.
All right.... Not bad.... A little heady, but not too much do you think? In highschool I got along well with both the "cool" group as well as the "nerds". I enjoy both for their own particular values that they bring. Why I added this? Not sure, but whether you find yourself in either camp, I'll likely enjoy conversing with you and you might just get me! lol
