Also: If I rate you highly but don't reach out, it's because I don't match what you're looking for. Feel free to say hi if I sound interesting, I won't bite.
Now, on with the description! *cue theme music*
I'm most frequently described as solid, passionate, and intense. When I engage, I'm all in. I like to learn new things, try new things, be challenged, and have long conversations about everything. If I don't know about it, I'm interested in it. When I'm passionate about a topic, you'll find me speaking quickly and talking with my hands a lot.
One ideal day involves visiting new places, hiking, rock climbing, gaming, good food, good drink, friendly competition, cooking, and someone interesting to share them all with. Another ideal day is spending the entire day alone in the quiet. Life is all about balance.
Meeting people that can make me think is always interesting. This doesn't mean that you have to be a PhD in something, everyone has something to teach. I highly value intelligence, probably above everything but loyalty. The best friendships and relationships that I've had were all with people where we didn't have to finish th....
I try to do one thing every day that scares me, and I hope one day to be the person that I want to be, rather than the one that I am. Self-improvement is absolutely critical to me, and I try to be as well rounded as possible. This does have the side effect of having a lot of unrelated hobbies. :-)
What hobbies you say? Photography, brewing, tinkering, rock climbing, cooking... These are a few of my favorite things.
Doing things to keep active is also a priority. I rock climb twice a week (and have been doing it for ten years) , walk seven miles a day on average, and would rather be moving than standing still. I'd like to get back into weights and running, but there are only so many hours in a day.
I'm very comfortable with who I am, and because of that I'm fine with whatever you want to be as well. As long as you don't hurt anyone who doesn't want it, do whatever you want and be happy.
Bonus points if you can make me question my points of view or make me actually laugh out loud.
