I am open and honest (even though I say things that others may strongly disagree with) and I do a great job at making people laugh. I am VERY VERY SARCASTIC...LET ME REPEAT...VERY SARCASTIC. I am looking for someone who can handle my crazy/off the wall comments that come out of left field and toss them right back at me!
My outlook on life is to enjoy the moment. I seize every opportunity I can to experience new things/places. I love surprises (giving and receiving). I think it is the little things that really make a difference in a relationship - leaving little notes, just calling/texting to say I'm thinking of you, etc. I can be a sucker for romance. I don't like chic-flicks, but I'll watch them. I don't like museums.
I love dancing and karaoke. I'm better at dancing than singing though. I know a little of all the ballroom dances (waltz, swing, country, polka, etc.). I am decent at salsa and merengue. My ideal match must love dancing! If you don't know how to dance, I will teach you or we can take lessons together!
I enjoy cooking - more Wolfgang Puck than Gordon Ramsay. The grill is the best invention ever. I grill all the time (rain or shine).
I ventured into Homebrewing beer this fall and have a black IPA that I can't wait to taste!!
Family is extremely important to me. I have a great relationship with my mom, uncles, aunts, and cousins. My cousins and I (there are 4 of us) are like brothers. We grew up together and fought and loved like brothers. I would do anything for my family and I know they would do anything for me. Without their support growing up, I don't know where I would have ended up. My ideal match MUST have a great relationship with her family!
I'm looking for someone who is looking for a long-term thing...if you're still getting over a past relationship, move on. If you love your life and are looking to compliment it with lots of fun and excitement, shoot me an email.
I love traveling and experiencing new places and people. Two years ago I went on a 5 week vacation in Ecuador and Peru...absolutely loved it! The beaches were great and the Galapagos Islands were breathtaking. I just returned from a month long beach hopping trip to SE Asia. I had time to use, so I booked the trip and a week later, I was flying into Thailand. Cambodia, Vietnam, and the Philippines were also visited. The islands in Thailand were definitely amazing and I will return in a few years for another month of relaxation.
I am active and fit. I am currently training for some triathlons and adventure races. I am looking for the same in a mate. I am doing my best to eat more healthy. I don't like any cooked vegetables except potatoes. But I will eat almost any vegetable raw. I absolutely hate beets. I like all types of food but my current favorite is Thai. I like spicy food and add cayenne pepper to a lot of stuff. Sushi is DELICIOUS! I'm not a big fan of just the raw fish, but the seaweed and rice wraps are soooo good. Eel (Unagi) is my favorite. Everytime I have sushi, I have to eat a little too much wasabi to make my nose burn and my eyes tear up - it's fun.
I enjoy the simple pleasures in life (thunderstorms, bare feet on soft grass, etc.).
I am a gun owner. If you're down for gun-control/anti gun, we won't get along.
My favorite quote:
"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat."
