Full disclosure: I co-parent an amazing 6 year old boy. I love being a father. I have a cordial, no drama, and supportive relationship with his mother. I am legally divorced.
In terms of the things I like to do, well, there are so so many. If I was only a rich trust fund guy, I know for sure I would never get bored. However, since my parents didn't make that happen, (the nerve :), I generally spend my nonwork time doing Martial arts, yoga, working on personal growth, watching films, running on the beach with my black lab, spending time with my son, reading, and getting together with friends whenever I can.
I work as an attorney - please...please...dont leave my profile yet. I do good work I promise. I don't screw anyone over. Get this, I even get loads of vacation time, get paid well, and work a regular workweek. Not bad huh?
I want to give an honest impression of myself. I am not a player. I avoid relationship games like the plague. I'm a likable guy who is easy to talk to. I listen well. I strike up conversations with people everywhere. I can hold a conversation with almost anyone. I have addressed huge gatherings for work without batting an eye. I'm not, however, the kind of guy who is likely to approach a woman with a cheesy pickup line at a bar.
I have great energy and I love getting out to experience new adventures. However, I also love to just chill. If you want to get some breakfast on Sunday morning, hop into bed,and watch movies all day...I am down. I love rainy days. If you want to go on a long run, Im down for that to, but lets go somewhere beautiful, not on a treadmill.
I love to laugh. Crying is not easy for me unless you put on the movies "Project X" (the one about the test monkeys) or Barbarian Invasions (a Canadian film). Then, Ill flood you out of the room.
I would describe myself as thoughtful and considerate. If I hear that a friend is sick, Im going to bring over some chicken soup. Thats pretty much a guarantee. Im also not a pain in the ass friend. Don't call me for a month...no problem. We will pick up where we left off. No guilt trips. People get busy. Friendship is not about control. I have friends that I haven't talked to in years and when I show up at their door in some random country 5 years later, or they show up at mine, the distance fades away. Thats true friendship.
I am an affectionate person. I don't mind at all public displays of affection. If the thought of kissing in a park bothers you or you are the type that likes to sleep on the other side of the bed, please read no further. I am not your guy.
I absolutely love to travel. I don't do solely tourism stuff anymore though. I had my fill of that. Now I travel throughout the world to see friends and family. If its pure tourism, I want to do something in nature. My last trips were to India and burning man. Incredible! Unless its Paris, I really don't want to just randomly tour cities anymore. I definitely do not do group tours.
Relationships. I was married for some time. I learned a lot. Im wiser now about what I want then when I got married. I am still open to trying it again someday under the right conditions and with that very special person.
I believe that the purpose of a relationship is to bring out the best in each other. Co-dependency is to be avoided. I am open to dating women of any color, religion, or nationality. I believe that the more we mix and become a human family, the better.
I try hard to look past the superficial to figure out what is in someones heart and soul, since I believe these things are the truest source of lasting chemistry. I work hard to develop myself spiritually. I love to laugh and crack jokes. To me, everything has the potential to be funny and I can find humor in almost any situation. I do goof off. Kids love me, which is a blessing and a curse. I can make you laugh when you are having a bad day...guaranteed!
