I am by no means an aspiring Olympic athlete, but I'm trying to fit more exercise into my life. A walking (and hopefully, in time, running!) buddy would be a great bonus.
The right man will be the one who has my back no matter what the situation. (By that I don't mean that he will enable me if I'm dead wrong about something!) This person will find me to be likewise supportive of him. I can be extremely generous to others with my time and energy. Having a mate who reminds me to take care of myself, gives me positive incentive to scale back and enjoy time with him, and can share some of the load of everyday life would be a wonderful gift!
