The best friends, dates, etc. are people who are real and genuine -- those for whom what you see is what you get. That's who I am, and it comes naturally. Life is too short to misrepresent yourself or your intentions or sort through others doing the such. It's just that simple. Just be true, and good things will follow. I like to get out there and see what nature has to offer, whether that is by land or by sea. Cities are are great and I enjoy working within the urban environment. But I feel a strong pull to get into the country and mountains and onto the rivers and lakes whenever I can find the time to do so. When I travel for work, I always try to combine trips with seeing something new or interesting, even if it is a logistical or time stretch to do so. Sharing those experiences with my friends and family and whomever I may be involved with, makes the times richer and more memorable.
I am bit of a wise guy and do best with people who like to be kid around and be clever and creative that way. I cannot understand how some folks can be happy without laughing more than they do. I am always told that I look much younger. I cannot remember anyone ever guessing my age within even 6 or 7 years. But I suppose in this system, which is new to me, some people may just look at the number, unlike in the real world.
I am very capable and competent in whatever I endeavour to do and confident in what I bring to the table. I enjoy getting involved in serving my community and doing what I can to make it a better place. I enjoy public speaking, thinking on my feet and negotiating creative solutions to issues that may arise. I enjoy my work and am tireless when it comes to problem solving. I like to help the people who I am close to and am a loyal and principled friend. Dating should be fun and easy. People have thought it to be unusual that I invariably stay friends with women whom I have dated. I think it is unnatural not to. A solid attraction is very important, but smart, funny and thoughtful is what keeps it going. Add an interest in actively exploring what the world has to offer and a high degree of integrity and I'm sold.
