I feel that having a great sense of humor and the ability to laugh at ones self is a must in life and long lasting relationships. I grew up watching my grandparents get into a tiff and then being able to laugh about it immediately afterwards, subverting the seriousness of the argument they just had. This ability for self reflection and humility is at the core of my identity and how I relate to others.
I am an active person who gets out and does "things." I am an avid snow skier, and climber. I also enjoy bike riding (road and mountain), running, hiking, rafting, and my new-found love, canyoneering (I would throw camping in, but that is generally a given with the aforementioned list). I am looking for someone who is interested in doing at least some of these things with me and my friends. Please don't be scared away if you only do one or none of them. All I ask is that you are game to try and have a good attitude.
I want to learn new things too. I would love for someone else to show me a new hobby or sport that I haven't tried yet. I'll try just about anything. (warning my karaoke voice is terrible, but with enough beers I may even do that. You have been warned.)
I also enjoy going to Sounders games (I go to drink, I go to sing... Don't worry the crowd drowns my voice out.), watching movies (though not too many lately), going out with friends, reading a book at a coffee shop or waking up late and making a nice breakfast. Travel is another passion that I have. I have traveled to many places in the US and Europe. I am hoping to add a few more continents to that list and I like having company when visiting new places.
If any of this sounds interesting or you simply finished reading my novel, I'd love to hear from you.
