I enjoy life's simple pleasures and am looking for someone who enjoys the same, speaks his mind, can empathize with others, and genuinely cares about the people he chooses to spend his time with, and likewise chooses to spend time with the people he cares about. I love to hike, roadskate, bike, swim, scuba dive, dance, and listen to loud music. You don't need to like the same things I like, as long as you don't mind that I know nothing even remotely about your favorite sports team. I really do want to hear your opinion, as long as you don't make fun of Nascar.
What I’m looking for:
A man who is emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and physically healthy.
Things I value:
Honesty, kindness, openness, reliability, self-awareness, open and honest communication, and self-expression. I am not great at reading people, so I tend to click better with those who are more expressive.
I do not care about ethnicity. Common values are more important to me. I respect the cultural heritage and traditions of my partner. Because I like learning new things, I have a tendency to be attracted to differences. This can be a hindrance in my relationships, as the vast majority of people tend to bond through shared interests. I find that people’s hobbies change over time and therefore tend to focus more on common values and personality traits rather than whether we gravitate towards the same activities at the present time.
Friends often describe me as being very laid back. Like everyone, however, I have my own unique likes and dislikes and hope that my partner will respect those, as I respect the preferences of others. I can be accommodating, but can also be intense about my hobbies, leisure activities, and personal goals.
Like any other relationship, a romantic relationship involves two people bringing their own strengths and weaknesses to it, hopefully with mutual respect and understanding for the journey that is taken.
Viva la vida.
