I would say I'm the creative and adventurous type, positive, and a deep thinker.
I keep myself pretty busy and my work can be fairly demanding. I enjoy being social and meeting new people. I have many passions that I try to make time for when I'm inspired.
I'm pretty happy as long as I'm not always making all the decisions. I make them all day at work, it's nice to have a break once in a while. Although, I am likely to be the first to take the bull by the horns if no-one else is stepping up. That being said, it's nice when the man I am with makes suggestions of things for us to do together too, otherwise sometimes I worry I might just run the show. I don't like it when there seems to be an imbalance of power in relationships and I don't mind being told if I'm out of line (that goes both ways though)...just be forgiving, I usually am, so please and don't hold a grudge.
I consider myself a life-long learner.
I often try to think of ways to be a better person, and to treat people with compassion and care. If I've done something to bother someone, I will reflect on it and try to approach it differently next time.
Making sure I go to the gym or get some kind of a regular physical activity is important to me......I put average because I consider athletic to be something very specific ....I wouldn't say I'm exactly that....but not miles off either.... I've had a few injuries this past year that I'm doing rehab for, so I'm looking forward to increasing my physical activities as things progress. Average would be accurate, although hopefully not for too much longer ;)
Typically, I enjoy the outdoors and the activities that go with it: mtn biking, snowboarding, hiking, camping, paddle boarding, snowshoeing, soccer, you name it and if I haven't tried it yet it's possible I'd be open to it!
Surfing is something I started last year and I am very keen to do more of and plan some trips around it in the future. So if you have experience in this (yay!) if not, hopefully you would want to learn with me!
Ideally, I'm looking for someone to start sharing and building my life with. To be my best friend and partner in crime so to speak.

Being able to communicate how you feel is pretty important to me. I am not afraid of confrontation, and try to approach challenging situations with thoughtfulness, I am very forgiving (maybe to a fault sometimes). I just feel like many problems people have build up (especially in relationships) when they are afraid to communicate things that are bothering them, until it becomes a "be all or end all" situation. Often I think issues could be resolved if you care enough to work them out with your partner and are open to the idea that often we interpret many of our situations based on our own fears and past experiences.
