...and 90% how I react to it."
Hi, I'm Ryan. I'm hoping to find a great girl; someone who thinks I'm great too. I love my life and want a best friend to share it with. I like my job and try to be great at it. I'm big on self improvement and always try to do what I believe is right. I value communication. I want my girlfriend to feel comfortable talking to me about anything. She's fun, witty, and knows how to make me laugh. She's a smart, loyal, genuinely nice girl with a big heart.
I work for three local school districts as a substitute teacher (I previously taught 2nd grade, but had to resign for health reasons). Teaching is something I'm good at and something I enjoy; it's definitely what I should be doing with my life. I also work at a local grocery store on Saturdays and during the summer.
I love being outside when the weather is nice, whether it be a walk in the park, a barbeque and some bags, or sitting around a fire with friends. I love Glacier National Park and the Smoky Mountains, and have always wanted to hike Yosemite's Mist Trail (going next June). Starved Rock, Devil's Lake, and the Chicago Botanic Garden are my favorite parks closer to home. I also love Rams football and playing with my nieces.
