But really, who knows? I'm a dude. I like stuff and things and junk.
Namely — riding bikes, my new puppers, boxing, France, live music, sitting around fires and staring into them.
I'm looking for some realness in a world seemingly constructed in its entirety of tawdry veneers. I want to meet someone with depth and understanding, full of life and charm and grace (Oh, is that all?). Someone with some endearing quirks who'll find mine equally endearing.
I'm pretty straightforward, perhaps to the point of obvious or blunt, although I'm trying to temper my enthusiasm and improve my filter. Apparently, heart on sleeve isn't all that fashionable in today's neurotic dating scene. Nor is foot in mouth, but that's been true for quite some time.
Anyway, I've been through several prototypical relationships, each one getting closer to my ideal. There may be many more ahead or there may be one. I have no way of knowing, but ultimately, I'm after a lifelong companionship, lasting love and family.
Now wait a second, commitment-phobes, I said ultimately. Meaning I am perfectly happy with going on some fun, lighthearted adventures, making friends and enjoying what life has to offer even if it's on a short term basis. After all, that's part of the journey, aint it? So, even if you're not at that point in your life yet, I'd still be up to meet and chat and frolic about town.
I've also been on a bit of a self-improvement kick of late. I don't drink or partake in other distracticants. It's fine if you do, as long as you're not a lush or an addict. By all means, go for that glass of wine or beer (or joint if that's your thing), it doesn't bother me, just know that I'm not interested in joining you.
On the health front, I have been working very hard on getting fit. I bike on a daily basis and work out at least three times a week (not bragging, not a Jersey Shore cast member, no ab photos or particularly photographable abs, I'm just sayin'). I'd love to meet someone who's interested in getting fit and playing in the outdoors.
If this all seems unfocused (and typo ridden) it's because I'm attempting to be honest and self-reflective at midnight while typing on an iPhone.
