I relocated from California to Seminole in August 2015. My company has an office here, and as much as I loved living in the San Francisco Bay Area, it was time for a change. I grew up in CT, attended UCONN, and lived in California since 1997. It wasn't easy to say goodbye, but it was time to start the next chapter in my life. So far, so good. Please don't assume that because I spent so much time in CA that I am a radical liberal, or that I fit the California stereotype. I am actually fairly conservative (I'd classify myself as middle of the road).
I teach fitness classes as a hobby (BodyPump, Insanity, and cycle), in addition to working a full-time job. Teaching is a huge part of my life. I get a charge out of helping members meet their fitness goals, as well as overcome other obstacles in their lives through fitness. They remind me that fitness isn't always about what you see improving on the outside, but how it feeds the soul and mind. I am honored that they allow me to be a part of their journey, and realize I learn as much from them as they do from me.
I'm looking for a man who is stable in his career, and has minimal baggage. We all have a past, but if yours has created dysfunction and/or your inability to be close to someone, please move on. I am looking for someone who is ready to move forward. I like being with men who are confident, but not arrogant, and who are strong, yet kind to all people and animals. Please NO smokers (vaping included) and no heavy drinkers. I'm not interested in a penpal, and prefer to meet sooner than later. You just can't tell much about someone until spending a bit of time with them. Please be available.
I know what I want from a relationship (and what I don't want), and am willing to wait for the right guy, so I'm not going to latch on to you, or waste your time just for the sake of having someone to spend time with. I believe physical closeness is as important as emotional closeness (translated - sex is very important to me). I also believe that couples need time apart to recharge, and to allow each person to maintain their identity. Let's start slow, have fun, and allow a friendship to build while an amazing romance unfolds. I believe that relationships take work and communication, and the best ones are those that are built over time.
