Well hello. My name is Nick. Welcome to my little POF profile. Make yourself at home.
I'm a 29 year old, career minded man who is in the process of carving out his place in the world. I'm a construction contractor and a competitive skier. That's why I'm in Salt Lake to begin with. I'm originally from Cincinnati. I miss it but I'm having a lot of fun here.
People say I have a hero complex. I've usually got the strongest personality in the room but I try to include people in my good time rather than talk over them or discourage their involvement. Making friends is more important to me than being the center of attention or making a point. I would also wager that I am more comfortable in my skin that just about any person you will ever meet. I've been in more life threatening situations and more awkward social situations that anyone that I can think of. Not that you should be impressed but just be warned. If, for whatever reason, we're running for our lives from an aboriginal horde in god-knows-what country, I'm about as likely to crack a joke about it as anything lol.
I'm looking for a girl with a strong frame of mind that knows how to hold her own in the world and in a conversation. Wealth is not important to me as it pertains to relationships but I abhor the idea of being in a relationship for it. I have no problem paying for a date but if your looking for a guy to pay your rent then... your in the wrong place. Aside from that I'm really only picky about the major personality facets: loyalty, honesty, strength of character, some level of athleticism and having a generally good moral standing. On those I am VERY picky and I'm pretty good at sizing people up early on. But if your into some obscure hobbies, I'm always up for trying new things!
I like to just get a cup of coffee or a beer and just get to know each other. Something light. Now if I get a warm fuzzy feeling from the first date I can be creative with the second. I'm kind of nerd in the respect that when I see things in movies I always want to do them. I'd say my most unique date was when I took my date to a picnic on top of the Carew Tower (the tallest building in Cincinnati) and then went to the symphony. Stuff like that.
