Let’s see about me, I generally tend to be pretty happy and try to always see the optimistic side of things. Do I still get annoyed, mad or sad at times, of course but I try not to dwell in them for too long. I like to think of myself as the guy who keeps his cool in most circumstances, and I am pretty laid back.
I was brought up to think if I want something I have to earn it or find a way to get it myself. I don’t have the attitude of its expected. When I was younger and got my first car, I had to pay my own insurance, gas, and do all my own repairs. At the time I hated it, but looking back on it I am very glad my parents made me do it. I think it taught me to appreciate things and not take them for granted. I love to help my family and friends where I can, but I will admit I have trouble sometimes asking for help for myself. I can be stubborn at times, pending the topic.
I would like to think of myself as a little bit old fashioned with an influence of modern day thinking, and a flare of sarcastic, quirky sometimes nerdy humor. I believe in holding doors open for strangers behind me (men and woman), showing respect for my elders, and saying please and thank you. I do think respect is a two way street and it is something that is earned. I have old fashioned values and have that dream of getting married to my Best Friend/ Prince Charming, buying a house together, and raising a kid or two together. Building family memories, and going on adventures together. Not that I have a set date in mind for any of this to happen of course, I want it to happen naturally within the relationship. That said, they are deal breakers for me! Having a family and kids is something I really want and think I can be really good at. Does that mean we will never do getaways just the two of us, of course not, but kids are in my future, I hope you are too.
As to interests and things I like to do. I like to try and cast a wide net in this area. Though I don’t always get to everything I like to do, I try. I like to be pretty active, and health is an important component to my lifestyle. I plan to see the age 100 and still be walking around on my own steam! I coach and do CrossFit, and sometimes compete. I have come to learn not to let CrossFit run my life and be CrossFit overload but it is something I really enjoy and have made some really close friends through it. I also work for Disney so in return I enjoy the Disney Theme parks & Disney movies. It’s kind of a requirement when you’re hired (LOL). I also like just about anything outdoors, such as Mud Runs, I’ve done the Spartan races several times and the Tough Mudder twice. I also really enjoy going to museums and art shows, and I am a big fan of theatre and Broadway. I love to try anything new, for example earlier this year I went to a Japanese Tie Tying workshop and had a blast.
I know this is just a glimpse into who I am, and there is still so much more. Though I hope you have made it this far down and that I have at least caught your interest. That way I hope we can meet in person and discuss more about each other face to face, and see where it leads us. Hope to meet you soon,
