About me: I love mountain biking, dirt jumping, lifting weights, doing Jiu Jitsu, and really enjoy photography. I spent 4 years active duty infantry in the Marines, I love nature, and hiking in the mountains as well many other outdoor activities.
What I'm looking for:
I'm at the point in my life where I really want to start a family. That doesn't mean I'm looking to start one tomorrow but I do want to find the person with whom I want to build my life and family with.
What I have to offer: I will love you with all my heart. My commitment is unwavering and I will stay by your side through the toughest of times. I will always be honest and I will never cheat or betray your trust. All I ask is the same in return.
What Im looking for in a woman:
The number one thing I am looking for is someone who is honest, trustworthy and capable of a real commitment. I understand the ups and downs of a relationship and want the same in my partner. To me commitment is more than being faithful, it is the dedication and ability to put the necessary work into a relationship. I want to standby by someone and enjoy the rewards and struggles of life together.
I want a woman who is happy and cheerful. Someone who is positive and supports me as I will in return. I am not perfect so I need a woman who can recognize my flaws and help me improve myself. I want someone who is affectionate as that is my love language. I want a partner, more than that really I want a trust as deep as family because that's what I want to build with the woman I love. I want to have a relationship with you that has the lifestyle and commitment level of a marriage. I want to support you in your undertakings and I want the same as well. I want to come home to you everyday and spend time with my lover. I want you to know that I will never leave you or betray your trust. I want to put everything into a relationship. I want to love you completely and unrestricted. I want to go through life with you; with all its ups and downs I want to be by your side the whole way.
Lifestyle: I am more concerned with experiences than I am with possessions. I want enough possessions to let us have awesome experiences. I want to play with my lover. We will go on mountain bike rides and go camping together. We will share adventures and explore new places. I want to lie in a tent or sleep under the stars and talk about nothing or everything with you. When I experiences something new and exciting, I want to look over and see the woman I love with the same smile on her face as me.
Obviously chemistry and a connection but lets get to the specifics. Lifestyle is very important. I want a woman who is educated, has a career or on the stepping stones to one, and who lives a healthy and active lifestyle.
Religion is not a deal breaker for me but since I don't buy into religion in order to be a good person I think there should be some common ground on the view of our beliefs.
Im going to get this one out of the way as it always seems to cause some conflict. I absolutely believe in equal rights. But. This means that if you work and I work then we are financially equal. Not you keep all your money and spend mine. This doesn't mean that I wont equally/equitably contribute to "our" needs or goals but rather keep a sense of fair and equal in the relationship. I've had some disagreements about this one so I decided to put it our there ahead of time.
I'm a type A personality so I like to plan, do things in the most time efficient was as possible and am very assertive. If this is the personality type you like then I'm your guy.
As you can see I'm very forward but this should give you an idea of who I am, at least as much as you can tell online.
