What to expect from me? I'm an upfront and straight forward guy... no hidden agendas. I don't have time or energy to pursue, date or juggle multiple women... just a one woman guy! If we don't click then it's no big deal, we move on. I'm easy to talk with, funny, creative, honest, sensitive, romantic, emotionally available and gentleman at heart but still a real man. I'm very generous and supportive in other people's dreams as I would expect the same in kind. I still believe in chivalry but also believe we share the load of everything in the relationship. I don't consider someone I meet on OKC disposable and would expect the same in return... meaning add to cart. We are people seeking mutual appreciation and something more than temporary. My father is the epitome of a gentle giant and gentleman, while my mother is a liberated little firecracker, always believed Anita Hill. I benefit from both of my parents character... pretty even keeled. Others would best describe my best qualities as someone possessing: solid character, morals, integrity, loyalty, humor, kindness and empathy... but others would say I'm a total smarty pants.
I'm very domestic @ home and comfortable in the great outdoors. I can easily survive in the mountains, jungles or desert... only with my insight to nature. My past experiences include traveling to some hostile parts of the world and living to tell about them. Those are conversations for a later time. I've rock climbed, mountain climbed, surfed, scuba dived, skin dived, sky dived, spent time in some third world countries and hiked the Colorado Trail. I'm passionate about experiencing the beauty of the California outdoors (and other states)... especially the National Parks like: Lassen, Kings Canyon/Sequoia, Yosemite, Zion, Bryce, Rocky Mountain, Crater and Pinnacles. Love taking motorcycle trips in the South of France. I'm able to work on my Jeep or Motorcycle, fix the plumbing, build a computer and make my place shine like I was Mr. Clean! ;p I've created my own dining room furniture... love to paint and create works of art that I decorate my flat with. You won't find me on the weekend glued to the TV, attempting to live vicariously through athletes of a favorite organized franchised sports team; I have my own life and real activities. Again... I'm a real man. I enjoy hiking, biking, camping, kayaking, jeeping, traveling and riding my motorcycle... too often I do these activities alone. I've been known from time to time to whip up a great dinner or two. (Yes, I can cook... @ home or camping!) I appreciate museums, galleries, art, movies, dining, dancing, comedy and staying in with a bottle of wine and a couple of good DVD's. I love animals but very particular about dogs... my past puppies would go anywhere with me... camping, hiking, running or an errand to the store... if I was climbing a rock face they we're right there like a billy goat climbing next to me... or wading a river like a fish... funny thing they always fought me when I needed to give them a bath???
Being attracted to someone physically is important to me (typical guy), but it is just where the initial attraction starts. Chemistry is essential and the rest will follow. Ideally... I'm looking for someone that is intelligent, outgoing, playful, romantic, well traveled or at least an interest in travel. I would love to meet someone that is looking for stability, a monogamous relationship and appreciates the same in life as I do. You should be comfortable with who you are and complicit about our online shopping... (inserted sarcasm) I mean okcupid.com.
Anything I enjoy but essentially I'm open to something new. The top of the list would be someone that is fit, loves to dance, adventurous, likes the outdoors but also enjoys a big city and its culture. There might be a chance that we (a the drop of a hat) go for a weekend getaway or hike somewhere in the mountains. Bonus points if you enjoy a friendly banter of stinging sarcasm and gut busting humor.
I am Sarcastic, Loyal, and Adventurous.
