Sometimes the options we have to choose on these profile questions are too cut and dried. For instance, I think I'm somewhere between average and fit. I'm reasonably fit for my age, and work out at least four days a week to stay there. I am looking for someone who also feels that staying reasonably fit is important.
And there's the first of many contradictions in my life. Health is important to me, but I'm probably not the healthiest eater you've ever met. I'm pretty good on fruits, not so great on veggies.
Religion is another of those areas that is a tough one for me to answer with just one click. I was raised Catholic, but I'm not practicing. I've been turned off by organized religion in general. I follow a moral code that is based on my Catholic upbringing, but I'm just not convinced that the any of the churches themselves have earned our commitment.
I'm a generally optimistic kind of guy, and I'd like to meet someone who feels the same way about life. I've faced some difficult times, and wasn't smiling all the way through, but I stayed pretty positive, so I'll really appreciate that in a future "significant other."
I'm looking for someone who shares some of my interests, but has plenty of her own. Some we'll enjoy together, some we won't feel the need to. Someone who is a strong, independent person but who still appreciates a door being opened for her (again - those contradictions keep us interesting).
