Me….I am the type who would set off on an adventure and let’s see where we end up. I’m the type who doesn’t care if I get all muddy riding a 4 wheeler….that’s what showers are for. I’m the type who would think riding horseback to some secluded destination would be cool. I’m the type who will take a jet ski and chase that huge wake. I’m the type that likes to have a few drinks around a fire and get into deep discussions. I’m the type that would try ziplining or bungee jumping (any takers on that?). For me life is too short to go through it doing the same old all the time. There’s enough of the same old in all our lives…..work and other responsibilities take up most of our time. I personally don’t want to look back when I’m 80 and think I should have. I like to live and living to me is not a couch and TV week after week. Of course there are times when a couch and TV are just fine….I’m not all get up and go. I enjoy movies quite a bit and sometimes long walks are the perfect way to end a day (especially on a beach….at night). I guess what I’m trying to say is for me living is pushing myself way outside of my comfort zone to do, think, and act in ways that are new to me and not worry about what is just acceptable or conforming. How else do we grow as individuals?
What I’m looking for…..a guy who feels that life is too short not to live it. A guy who is active. A guy who is not afraid to go outside of his own comfort zone and challenges me to do the same….whether it’s an activity or something to expand my thinking. A guy who likes excitement and newness and isn’t afraid of the unknown adventure. A guy who sees life as an adventure and who matches my creativity in finding ways to challenge each other.
And distance really isn’t an issue for me as long as you're within a day's drive….I’m not married to Tennessee and plan to move close to the Gulf at some point. The airlines have so many round trip deals to and from Nashville that traveling somewhat frequently is not out of the question as long as it goes both ways. Besides I like road trips. The way I look at things is if all signs appear to be a go with someone except one thing....like distance...it just might be worth at least talking to that person. Love is often found where you least expect it and doesn't always come in the neat package that you hoped for. I have told my kids throughout the years to always stay open for possibilities….even if those possibilities seem daunting. I don’t like to restrict myself in terms of possibilities. But then I’ve always been a bit of a risk taker. Besides….. Whether you think you can, or you think you can't, you're right. I prefer to think I can.
