I guess what I'm really looking for in an ideal match is a woman that can keep me on my toes, give as good as she can take, likes being goofy at times, and enjoys the simple things in life. Someone that loves spending time with me, but also has their own interests, hobbies and friends and understands that I have the same in my life.
I enjoy concerts, sporting events, just about any outdoor activity including running, downhill skiing, cycling, tennis or just hiking around town. Oh, and I enjoy cooking too.
Some things that I must honestly admit after reading the expectations of some of the profiles on this site:
I don't have a passport. I guess I just haven't had the opportunity (time or money or both at a given time) for world travel, but I really would like to go to Europe soon.
I can't grow a beard very well at all. It just looks like I have a dirty face. UPDATE: I have successfully grown a moustache/fumanchu and it doesn't look that bad. See photo.
I currently don't own a bicycle. The last one I had a few years ago was stolen. I am thinking of buying one next year.
I am not a vegetarian or a vegan. I enjoy vegetarian meals, but I like meat too much to ever be a full-time vegetarian. I can't even comprehend veganism.
I own a car and enjoy driving. I also enjoy working on/repairing cars.
I am not six foot tall. It's not in the cards for me.
I am a nice guy. I know that that is not for everyone, but I'm polite, courteous and hold doors open for women, kids and the elderly.
I don't mind going out with a woman that is taller than me. This doesn't freak me out. Go ahead and wear whatever height of high heels you would like ladies.
I haven't ran a half marathon or a full marathon yet. I would like to someday soon. Thinking about Grandma's next year.
I am currently pudgy due to a back injury that kept me from running for a while, but now I am back at it and hope to loose all of the weight as soon as possible (in a healthy manner). UPDATE: I have been running between 6 and 8 miles a week and take many long walks. Getting back into the groove of running again.
I'm not trying to be a jerk, just upfront and honest.
