I love to go for long hikes on the weekends, when it's not storming of course. There's something so satisfying about setting out on a challenging hike, one that may be just a bit beyond what I think I am capable of accomplishing, and then discovering at the end of the hike that I am much stronger than I thought. I love the sounds and smells of nature and allowing myself to be completely in the moment. It would be awesome to find a partner who could take these hikes with me and who would challenge me along the way.
I believe that I am still evolving and growing as a person and I never want to lose the desire to keep learning. I think self-reflection and analysis is necessary in order to not atrophy or wilt. I journal and write as a form of catharsis and to keep myself aware.
On a personal note I would just like to say that I can seem quiet and reserved at times, but once I am comfortable I will open up. I don't want to give my heart away too easily because I only have one heart. I can usually sense a person's genuine nature relatively quickly and I value honesty and kindness in a man.
