I recently deleted my profile just to start over from scratch. So here goes. I am a very diverse person with a wide variety of likes and passions. Simply put, I love life and I am grateful for the chances I have been given. I strive to be the best man that I can possibly become, often failing but always learning from my short comings and failures. I am very laid back and rarely ever allow the world to get me down. I seek adventure in all aspects of my life, always looking for a new way to add value and meaning to a life I already cherish. I like to be challenged whether it's mentally or physically and I certainly don't like having things just handed to me. Nothing is more meaningful than something you have worked hard to obtain and maintain whether that is referring to physical possessions or relationships or something in between. I am thankful that I am not like most other people in the way I see and live life. I feel a relationship, whether it is romantic or friendly, is something you must cherish and work at to overcome and endure. We are all given opportunities but it's what you make of those opportunities that will help define your life. In a relationship I choose the be grateful for what I have and more importantly I am grateful for what that person I am with has to offer my life. I have learned that it is unreasonable and unrealistic to expect things of your partner that they don't already embody. Be happy with what they offer your life, if you can't be and you are expecting more than what they are willing and or are capable of offering, then you need to seek happiness elsewhere rather than expecting them to change. With that being said, I also feel that happiness should be something that is self obtained and sustained. If you can't be happy with yourself how could you ever be happy with someone else. My belief is that life should be lived with an open mind and without limits. Don't limit yourself by creating boundaries; reach for the stars and hope that somehow, someway you will grow enough as a person to be able to reach what it is that you seek. Life is about adventure, taking advantage of every moment you have, laughing, smiling and simply embracing those moments that are worth remembering. Anyone can wake up and live a life of routine. Where is the excitement in that? Make of your life what you want it to be. As for myself, I am doing just that. I am happy within my own skin and I am simply seeking someone to share my life and love with. When I love, I love with my whole heart. I give all that I have to making that person happy while having the trust that they will do the same for me. I am a best friend and a lover, I am someone who wants nothing more than to find someone who I can be inspired by, someone who will challenge me to become an even better person. I am a very compassionate person and I love the world and the life I try to live. Though I want to settle down and have someone to seek out my next adventure with, I am in no rush to jump into anything and I am certainly not going to do so with just anyone. I want someone with character, someone who is a good person deep down to their core. I don't want someone who opens the door for someone or does a nice gesture because you are seeking recognition, I want someone who will go out of their way to help someone even if no one else notices.
UPDATE: Please, please message me with something more than just hey or how are you or the combination of the two. If you aren't going to try and actually have a conversation or lead from one topic to another then I assure you, we aren't going to hit it off. I have taken the time to write about myself in detail, please take a little time and consideration in explaining why you are writing and what sparked you interest.
