I'm not what I would consider a materalistic person, but I do believe in having the best when I can afford it, and not spending more than what's within my means....(comes from growing up poor and raising above it thru education and hard-work.)
I've been told more than once that I'm diffently a "city boy", but I'm just as a comfortable camping out in the woods for a few days as I am hanging out downtown with friends.
I consider myself a decent, well-traveled, law-abiding, educated, stable guy with above-average intelligence and thankfully, a good dose of common-sense.
At the end of the day.....I think I'm looking for the same thing everyone else is, to be loved as much as I love, and being an affectionate person, that tends to get me walked on more than I care for, because I'm the kind of person who will give the shirt off his back to make sure his signicant other, his family, and his friends are safe and taken care of.
In short, I consider myself to be one of the few "nice guys" left.
