I pretty much enjoy anything outdoors. I love being near the water or at the beach, but I am just as happy camping up in the mountains under tall trees and the stars (which I do whenever I get a chance).
I'm not a big TV watcher, though I admit to being hooked lately on a couple of shows. I love movies either at home or at a theater. I like action movies, and oddly enough, chick flicks, but don't care much for gore. I love mysteries with a twist, or that you can't figure out until the end (without being contrived).
My music tastes run from heavy metal, alternative, and pop or rap while working out, to smooth jazz or 70's rock at home or at work.
I tend to stay relatively fit and eat healthier than most, though I'd hardly call myself a fanatic. I do hit the gym most days or do something that gets me moving. I drink socially but do not find excessive drinking fun at any time. I try to shy away from junk food, though I have a weak spot for some in moderation (red wine, chocolate and cheese to name a few). I'm a firm believer in moderation, and that enjoying life is as important as leading a healthy life (physically, emotionally and spiritually).
I'm definitely a dog lover. My present dog is a two year old pug. Other than my kids (who are grown and without a doubt my best friends), he is my confidant. If you can figure out how to talk to him you will find out all my most personal thoughts and feelings.
My favorite 'feel good' memories seem to usually involve rain or cool cloudy weather, and me of course being somewhere warm and dry. Rainy and cool weather makes me want to curl up on the couch with a good book and a cup of coffee (or a glass of wine).
My friends tell me I'm kind, friendly, and easy going. I do try to be friendly to everyone, even perfect strangers. You never know which one will be your next friend. I read a saying once that stuck in my head. "No such thing as strangers, just friends I haven't met".
I'm not big into sports. I enjoy a baseball or football game, but don't plan my week around games or playoffs. I'm always open to new ideas and experiences and enjoy going to a sports bar for a drink and a game, but if you're looking for a guy that's passionate about sports, I'm probably not your guy.
I'm pretty happy with my life, what I do for a living, where I live, and the quality of my life, though I'd love to find someone to share it with. I tend to be happiest when making that special someone in my life happy.
