During the day I am a Mechanical Engineer, but in my spare time I am the Artistic Director for a high school marching band. If I wasn't already an Engineer, I believe I would be a teacher, as working with youth is my vocation and passion. The good thing is that I get to do both. I absolutely love kids and I wish I had some of my own, or some that I could grow to love, but I am game for whatever God provides for me.
Music has a special importance in my life. As much as I can I am listening to some form of music; in the car, at work with headphones, or going to symphony orchestra concerts, musicals, operas, elementary, middle, and high school concerts, or even a jazz/blues group in a park. I just really love music and performance in general.
I do enjoy watching sporting events (especially the Seattle Seahawks), and am more likely to enjoy college sports than professional due to the rivalries. My man cave doesn't sport any kegs, sports illustrated posters, or basketball hoops, but I do enjoy my high tech theater system, and other gadgets. I am passionate, affectionate, and I love to be transparent with a soul mate. I do not particularly want to date as many girls as possible, but to find someone to hold my hand on a park bench when I am 90 something. I am interested in someone who could appreciate my passions, but not necessarily have to partner with me in them. I love to communicate, and I need someone who can be transparent about their feelings, including all of the good and the bad.
I am devoted to creating a lasting relationship and will do what it takes to make things work. I want to meet a woman's needs, protect her, validate her, and let her be the woman she wants to be. I am looking for a woman who genuinely loves people. They are not an annoyance to her. I would love to have a woman who is affectionate which doesn't only mean sexual. Someone who feels comfortable holding hands, cuddling, kissing, hugging and sharing her love that resides inside.
There is nothing more uplifting than a person who finds goodness and beauty in everyday things. I believe that when it comes to common interests, if a couple is communicating well about what they love and that they feel safe speaking them, interests can become common. You love the person first, and then loving their world, dreams and desires becomes easy and natural.
