In the past few years, I have made many friends and learned much about myself and enjoyed the world around me. I say all that to say that now I am ready to share life’s adventures with someone wonderful. I finally know that now I am ready to pursue a relationship with the RIGHT GAL.
I am fully recovered from past mistakes, and have zero drama in my life and I am in the happiest place in my life now. I value honesty, integrity, and peacefulness in my life.
(Disclaimer) Though I have listed my education here as Masters, it is really; "Some College". I am however highly certified and knowledgeable in IT, Business, and Mechanical Engineering. My peers are commonly MBA's, and CS majors. They are always surprised that I do not have a masters.
------ Who am I and what makes me tick -------
I consider myself an intellectual country gent (not a redneck), and border on metrosexual. I am very mechanically inclined, handy, a tad refined and comfortable at both the ballroom and the mud bog. I am well-travelled globally, and am generally a realist with a positive outlook on most things.
I am analytical in nature, big on character, long on patience, aligned with integrity and humility. I enjoy the arts, craftsmanship, psychology, philosophy, wine, good food, nature, quiet times and intelligent conversation. I am also quite funny, and can make just about anyone laugh or smile ear to ear with my witty humor.
I am romantic and believe in treating a lady like a lady (displayed with chivalry, manners, and grace) and respect a woman as an individual. I enjoy dressing to the 9’s, (but am just as comfortable in jeans).
For hobbies I enjoy adventure for the most part. Those activities that require intelligence, focus, and inner strength get my nod and if they produce adrenaline that is a bonus. These activities include but are not limited to Motorcycling (I compete in long distance events, and am NOT a Harley type), Rock climbing, Scuba diving, Flying, Bicycling, & Dancing. I also am currently interested in Cooking, Volunteering, & Gardening. Television shows and watching team sports bore me. But I’m up for a movie or a conversation anytime! In addition I love to cook!
Some of my goals & aspirations are:
Personal Growth: I strive to be a well-rounded, giving and loving man. I consider myself a work in progress, and I am ALWAYS learning and growing. I also have a passion to be an example of integrity to others. Maybe someday the percentage of people with it will increase. I will do my part.
Relaxation: I would love to one day ride a motorcycle from India to Tibet and Nepal. YES. I CALL THIS RELAXATION! However I also love to have intellectual conversations about character, personal growth, dreams, goals, and human dynamics. Wine is also my friend and makes any event smoother with a touch of class.
Relational: I hope to one day meet an attractive woman with intelligence and character that I can easily relate to, someone who enjoys life, is adventurous, sensual, passionate, and has a zest for life.
Music: I enjoy most all music other than Old school country, metal and rap/hip-hop. I especially enjoy bands like U2, Sting, Contemporary Jazz selections, Electronica, House or Lounge genre.
Spirituality: I am spiritual and would consider myself non-denominational.
I don’t smoke as I have an allergic reaction to the smoke. I try to lead a healthy life style and as I want to enjoy every moment of my future with that special someone. I would hope that she would also lead a healthy lifestyle.
I would hope for someone intelligent who wants to get to know someone, build a friendship that can possibly turn into something amazing.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
In particular I believe a "CLASSIC FIRST DATE" is to "GET TO KNOW" someone after it is found out that there is a chemistry that has been built. So the prelude to a "FIRST DATE" for me is a phone call and or a chat session (I use yahoo messenger). I have found that a movie is a poor vehicle for such an event as you would spend 90 minutes focusing on a movie and not on each other. I would prefer to take a walk at a botanical garden, try a new restaurant, or share some event of common interest so that at least that part feels comfortable. It could be a bottle of wine and some cheese on a patio, or chips n salsa, or an art exhibit at the High museum as well. Either way lots of intelligent conversation would be involved. We go from there...
