What you see, is what you get. I will always read your profile, I will always message people that I find interesting and not only because I find them attractive. I have seen the copy paste jobs from friends that are women who use online dating and get the most ridiculous messages, and I will never be one of those guys. I would much rather win you over by me being myself and being genuine than to put up some sort of facade.
I love to laugh, share moments, be a bit too goofy at times, push my body on a tough hiking trail or on a sports field. I am looking for someone who has their own passions in life and wants to share some of them with someone. Independence hasn't always come easily to me when it comes to relationships, but a lot of growing and finding myself has made me realize that the healthiest relationships are grown with time together and time apart.
This is getting overly wordy, and I know sometimes I don't want to read a ton in a profile so I am slowly backing away from the keyboard... and moving onto these other sections.
