You've found a Midwestern guy with a sense of adventure who moved to NYC 15 years ago for what was supposed to have been a three year experience. Clearly I've been having a good time here in the City. Having someone to share it with would only make things better. Here are a few tidbits about my life and what makes me tick:
*Quick Update- the site says I'm against inter-racial marriage, which isn't true and I haven't been able to fix my answer to this question. Aggravating.
I’ve always been an active guy and I spent a lot of time either playing competitive sports or reading while growing up. I have a real competitive spirit and I love to break a sweat (not while reading, I feel I should be clear about that). A few of my favorite authors are John Irving, Bill Bryson, Twain, and Alexander Dumas. Bryson is from my home town and we share a similar sense of humor (so of course I find him hilarious). I wrote, directed, and acted in a number of musical comedies in college and I was a member of a comedy troupe for a while too. That doesn’t mean I walk around cracking jokes all the time but it does mean I consider a sense of humor to be important and you'll find I laugh easily and often. I’m also not the wacky sense of humor type of guy – usually a little drier than that. While going to school in the Midwest I worked for my university as a hiking and canoeing guide so you know I love the outdoors. I think growing up in the Midwest in a family that was equal parts theatrical performers and lawyers gave me an interesting outlook on life. I got the tennis lessons and the summers in Telluride but I also have a real appreciation for the arts. I come from a family of story tellers and I'm told I can hang with the best of them. I was also given a healthy dose of the famous Midwestern work ethic growing up. I had to spend a great deal of time doing chores on my grandfather’s farm (I was woefully unaware of child labor laws). As a result of all of this I have a wicked backhand and I can saddle and ride my own horse while talking politics and current events (no one has tested me on this yet). Favorite sports - soccer, tennis, and skiing. I’ve coached and played all three and tennis has become both a competitive outlet for me and a social network. I captain a number of USTA teams year 'round and I really enjoy the comaraderie playing on a team provides and the friendships I've developed over the years. Those friendships mean the world to me and I consider my best friends to be part of my family.
While I love all of the opportunities and adventures NYC provides, I have to say it was difficult to resign from my position as a high school soccer coach to leave my boys to someone else. Coaching is the most rewarding thing I've ever done and I try to keep my hand in the game on occasion. The first time one of my players jumped into my arms after a match I was hooked for life. How could anyone not be?
So why am I here? I'm here because I’m at a point where I can take time to do the things I really enjoy and I'd like to have someone to share these things with. I imagine if you're here you feel the same way. I'd like to find a true compaion, someone I can share my life with, build a life with. I'm a kind, open minded, thoughtful man who really enjoys making people happy. I'm hoping to find that in a companion as well. I'm looking for someone who has a sense of adventure and spontaneity, a good sense of humor, and a kind heart. I'm also looking for someone with a flexible personality. I'm not a big fan of rigid people (have to be able to roll with the punches - I love to spring surprises). From my bio you know I like sports and being outdoors. I also like to hit the trendy restaurants and bars and I love to go dancing once in a while. I don't have to be with someone who has the same interests that I do but having an open mind about what I like to do is important to me.
You know what, what I'm really looking for is someone I can have a great time with. The rest will work itself out. I love finding new places and things to do in the City. If you’re interested in adventuring around NYC and getting to know someone like me, drop me a line..
