I am a rockclimber and will be a rockclimber for the rest of my life. It is my passion and gives me so much meaning and purpose, and reason for travel to the most beautiful places imaginable. I almost exclusively boulder rather than sport climb but I've been getting into sport more recently. I climb whenever I can, most weekends, most evenings. It takes up a lot of my time.
I should say that I am very liberally minded, especially socially. For example, if you are not for gay rights and marriage, that's a deal breaker. I think marijuana should be legal and i'm pro-choice.
If you are Christian, monotheistic or strongly religious in any way, I probably will not be interested in anything serious with few exceptions, those being given to more Buddhist minded folk. My thoughts about religion are educated and well thought out but i'm not a Nazi and I invite conversation.
I get cold easily. I love cooking delicious food including baking! I'm all about scoping out new restaurants and finding the best cappuccinos availabe. I have three big-ish tattoos and I think tattoos on women are really sexy. I'm always planning my next tattoo but I make myself wait with a design for atleast 2 years before I get one. Otherwise I would have a shit ton of really stupid tattoos!
Sitting on a beach somewhere sounds like the worst vacation I could imagine. I can sit on my ass anywhere. I like adventure, climbing...exploring...little cafes...mountain towns.
I could care less about cars or sports. I don't drink that much and bars have never been my scene. I'm not an alpha male by any means and detest traditional gender roles. So if you're looking for that "man's man" kinda guy...move on.
I'm looking for someone who sees relationships as a means for personal growth. I want someone who is prepared to show up and be genuine; someone who know that we will see each others vulnerabilities, secrets, insecurities and faults. As a result, relationships should be a way to develop compassion, patience, love and empathy for ourselves, our partners and humanity as a whole. It should be a tool to better ourselves.
I'm a smaller fellow and being fit and in shape is very important to me and is my lifestyle. I would need a partner that could say likewise. I tend not to be attracted to primped up and preened women. I usually go for the more athletic, indy, outdoorsy types that clean up quite well as opposed to the type that wears pounds of makeup on a daily basis. But on the flipside, I don't go for hippies...so somewhere in the middle of the road is my preference.
