In a word: Synergy. That's what I'm looking for. If I used lots of words, I'd say: I am looking for a smart, funny, active, has-it-together, interesting guy. who wants to live life, laugh, and have fun. I am an optimistic, positive person, so I'd like to meet someone with similar qualities. A do-er, not a talker.
I enjoy hikes, kayaks, rock climbing, river rafting, horseback riding, camping and travel. I've been to Europe and several states, and have determined I love the Pacific Northwest and the coast, though I never turn down an opportunity to go just about anywhere. On a typical day, I take my dog out on the trail and I do hope that someday he'll actually go off leash, and come back...He's also a favorite at the dog park... not to brag, but he's sort of charming. I live close to the river and try to get down there a lot in the summer. Nature is really good for the soul.
I typically prefer to date dads. I find that men who are involved in their children's lives tend to understand the day-to-day business of dating/parenting. It's not a requirement, but worth mentioning.
