Edit, April 2013:
I am no longer in a committed relationship, and will update this profile in the near future...
First off, I am in a committed relationship with a wonderful woman who I am not looking to replace. We are very supportive of one another in our lives, but realize that we can not be everything for one another. While she has had various outside relationships these last three years, I have been working on being better with my communication in order to start seeking another for an open and honest relationship.
I am not looking for a replacement partner, nor am I looking for casual sex. I hope to meet women to date and spend quality time with together. I do not have a lot of excess time, but I would like to find someone to share some of it with.
I grew up in Florida, but never felt that I belong. I moved to the Pacific Northwest in 1999, and never looked back.
I am an active person, biking for transportation, getting out in the woods when I can (anytime of year), and participating in various sporting endeavors.
I love being in the kitchen, and am most happy being prep boy, but I will happily cook as well. I place a high importance on food and believe that our health is dependent on what we put into our mouths. I have been vegan/vegetarian for most of these past thirteen years, but will occasionally eat some meat now, depending on how my body is feeling. While I do not tell people how they should eat, I will challenge people about the choices they make.
While I do enjoy social activities, I prefer smaller, quieter settings more and more. I enjoy observing people and have come to understand that my conversations with people will often be awkward. The words in my head often do not come out coherently, but that's ok.
