I am very active. I try and be busy every day with something. I believe that time not spent well, whether going out and enjoying oneself or learning something is time wasted. In my former life, I went to go see a lot of live music concerts (I actually ruined my hearing doing so). I seek out little hole in the wall restaurants. I like talking trash during board game night. I'm a pretty fierce poker player and I play in tournaments around town and sometimes win. I play tennis, golf, volleyball, racquetball, and go hiking somewhat frequently.
I'm an outdoorsman and environmentalist. I will drag you out hiking and camping whether you like it or not. I spent six days backpacking Big Bend National Park last fall, and have been planning to hit Guadalupe Mountains/Carlsbad Caverns National Parks next. I have been all over the country and am always planning the next road trip. I would love to travel overseas, but somehow never have had the opportunity. I know most of the constellations in the night sky.
There is also much to be said for snuggling on the couch at home. It's fun to pick some random complicated meal out of a cookbook and make a huge project out of it and try to make it. I like gardening and planning elaborate herb and flower gardens. I'm a good listener. I'm usually the person that friends come to for input about their own relationship problems. I'd like to think that I'm pretty sensitive to a partner, but I have been known to be a thoughtless oaf from time to time.
My flaws (and there are a few): I have been accused of being "frugal" from time to time. I tailgate people and call them jerks when I am running late. I am always running late. I'm usually disorganized. I can be a little judgmental about people. I'm not really that much of an animal person (allergic to cats!). I don't drive a very nice car. I draw the line at tipping waitresses more than 20% independent of quality of service. I laugh at other people's misfortune - but usually only when they deserve it.
