I love doing things outdoors. ANYTHING outdoors I love to do it :) camping is a lot of fun especially exploring new places and climbing up rock faces without ropes, just kinda finding a way to get up there. Rafting is a lot of fun to! While I'm on the topic, adrenaline is a huge thing for me. When that rush comes it feels like anything is possible. It's amazing how much you can actually achieve if you just try something. One more reason I love the outdoors so much is because photography is a lot of fun for me as well! I love landscape and animal photography more than anything else and I actually have some darn good pictures :)
My career goals are something I'm extremely excited for. It took a year or two for me to figure out what I wanna do, but I decided on being an EMT (which I knocked out Fall of 09 and am now a working EMT in Denver) and work towards a Paramedic, and work as a medic till I get on with a fire department :) Another thing I want is to make enough money that I can support my wife and she can choose whether or not she wants to work or stay home, and of course, travel the world and eventually have enough that I can take a year off work, and school and train to climb Everest then actually climb it :)...just need that 70K lol
I'm an awesome boyfriend (Just for openers) I end up being the hopeless romantic that leaves roses on your car while you're at work, or a little love note somewhere for you to find a day or two later. I want a girl that'll call every once in awhile just for a quick "I love you" and to say hi...cause I do that too :) One of my dream things to do with someone is sit inside, watch the snow fall....listening to Christmas music (cause it would be around Christmas time) and watch some heart warming chick flick on TV...Elf maybe...while cuddling with each other under a blanket, sippin cocoa and eating cookies we just made together...(haha thoughts kinda got away from me there) I love making my girlfriend feel special and seeing her face light up when I do something creative and extraordinary for her. It makes me feel really good when I can get her smiling again after she's had a really rough day or something horrible's happened. Although I'm also always there for her and understand when she just needs someone to listen to her and just be a shoulder to cry on. I really like going for late night drives and cuddling up under a blanket and watching the stars...or night hikes rock my world! On the other hand though, going out for a movie and ice cream is always fun to :) one of my favorite things to do is go camping (which yes, I know, I've already said that) but I'd really like my girlfriend to be interested in camping and adventure and all that fun stuff without worrying about getting dirty or a little scratched up. I really want someone who is adventurous and spontaneous, and likes to spend the night hiking, or do a weekend warrior road trip somewhere neither of us have been before. I want a girl who is somewhat independent and can make her own decisions. (and keep me in check when my ego starts getting a little to big :)
One more thing...I want to see the world from every aspect of it! Whether that be scuba diving, looking at the polar ice caps, hiking across a mountain range or up in the sky diving back down to earth. I wanna do it all and experience everything before I pass away. I believe that I am extremely passionate about living the life I love! I will be traveling the world and am looking for someone who is willing to do that with me.
So there ya go I'd say that about sums it up :)
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
For a first date I think coffee at a local coffee shop (starbucks is the devil) and a short hike (preferably with a dog) gives tons of time for talking, as well as seeing if the other person is really into the outdoors or just putting up a front.
