If I had to choose just three words to describe myself, I’d go with loyal, optimistic, and caring. I love to laugh, and am even-tempered. I believe in treating people with respect and compassion, and have no patience for abrasive personalities. I have a very curious mind, and love all kinds of learning, puzzles, problem-solving, and exploring.
Working with my hands makes me happy, especially in the kitchen where I’ve been known to improvise my way through a homemade pasta or brownies. I also like woodworking and gardening, though I’d like it better if the fruits of my labor didn’t go straight into the local squirrels!
When the weather cooperates, I like spending time outside kayaking, biking, fishing, running, and hiking. Ice fishing and sledding can be fun too, but you'll need a little patience if you want to take me skiing.
Chemistry is important to me. In general, I am drawn to women with great personalities who are physically active. I don’t need or expect perfection, just mutual attraction.
I hope to meet a thoughtful, intelligent, kind woman who is open to a long-term, committed relationship, if we are a good fit. I like people who can be silly or strong, are considerate of others’ feelings, and who don’t take themselves too seriously. A sense of humor and ambition are good. Laziness and negativity are not.
Does this sound like you? I hope so. I look forward to meeting you very soon.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I prefer a quiet public place, like a cafe etc, where we can talk and get to know each other. Walks through the park or along the beach are also nice if the weather is cooperative.
