Hello and thank you for looking at my profile. I am on okcupid, because in the long run I'm searching for my other half. Spending time, participating in activities etc. and getting to know each other is important to me.
In my spare time I love to work out and listen to various types of music (more often than not the type of music I listen to depends on my mood.) I have taken up reading again (I had stopped for some time, I suppose I got tired of reading when I was in grad school.) I love taking pictures. When the weather is nice(r) I enjoy the outdoors i.e. hiking, biking, kayaking, paddle boarding, mountain biking, dragon boating etc. I've had my open water scuba diver license since last year and have ten dives under my belt thus far. I love it under the seas!
I'm a busy body who's big on actively participating in sports and keeping life interesting. I don't mind attending sporting events, just not all the time. I did not grow up with and do not like baseball. Basketball is just fine and over the last five years I have even come to appreciate American Football. I am open to learning/experiencing new things, no doubt.
My background is German and I have been living in the States for half my life. I speak German and English fluently and am in the process of learning Portuguese and Spanish. One of my passions is traveling and when I say that I'm talking about around the world type travels. At this point I've had the opportunity to visit all but one continent. Lucky me!
Life is not all fun and games and I am quite serious when it comes to accomplishing my goals professionally.
I am looking for someone who will evolve over time and who is aware that growing and challenging each other to become better persons is part of a relationship. As mentioned, ultimately I would like to find a man who I can settle down, build a life together and have a family with.
My parner has got a great head on his shoulders, is staying fit and has a variety of interests including travel and outdoor activities. It takes a less superficial man with a good eye to recognize the diamond in the rough before you!
PS. I'm not looking for hook ups or married men. I'm also not looking to date a man who already has child(ren) ... I don't have any and I'm looking for the same.
