My self-summary
Enriching my life and improving my overall wellness - physically, spiritually, mentally, and emotionally - is very important to me and I'm looking for somebody with a similar desire to live a full, healthy, happy life.

I enjoy lifting and moving heavy things, running, biking, swimming, hiking, and camping. I love the outdoors and try to stay moving as much as possible. About once a week, though, I really love to just kick it and relax by the pool or catch something good on Netflix.

I prefer small-group, low-key settings where people can interact and have quality conversation rather than going out to bars, clubs, etc. That said, I can get down with night out every once in a while. A good dinner, followed by drinks and maybe some music and dancing is tough to beat.

I try to follow of Jesus Christ's example and teachings, but am constantly exploring new and alternate ideas. Lately I've been trying to learn more about Judaism and Islam and I expect my beliefs to continue to evolve for the rest of my life.

Although I have my faults, I consider myself to be a hard working, outgoing, relaxed, genuine guy. I am always learning and always trying to be a better man.
What I’m doing with my life

My next life adventure.
On a typical Friday night I am
My Friday nights are typically very laid back - just kicking it on the home front or grabbing dinner. Saturday afternoons/evenings I usually try to get into something fun - pretty much anything which involves enjoying the company of others.

Typically my weekends are spent traveling, spending time with friends (pretty standard answer, I know), and resting up from my weeks.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You've probably already read it (what's the point in putting everything online?).
You should message me if
You like what you've read so far.
