More than anything else, curiosity drives me. When I was six, I remember reading that mankind would visit Mars by the year 2014. I wanted so badly to be one of those astronauts. It's 20 years later, and while I am not very likely to be rocketing off to Mars this year, I think this story highlights that very key aspect of my personality. Why strap on an air tank and dive into the ocean, or climb to the top of the highest mountain? To see what's there! An eagerness to explore and to learn has stuck with me for my entire life, and its not likely to be going anywhere anytime soon.
In a nutshell, I am the type of guy that jumps into a swimming pool without checking to see how cold the water is first. I want a woman that will do the same.
