Real slender tall dark skinned guy. Wiry or lanky...whatever you call it. I do SPORTS and VOLUNTEER. I run and play soccer. Not your TV or armed chair sports guy. I swim and walk too. I am in excellent shape now but I know soccer and running will not go on forever. Will not be participating in the soccer league in 2 years for sure. So I will eventually learn golfing. Probably buy a bike too. That all said...I am not a coach scouting on here for runners and soccer players.
Gas is expensive and so I would prefer local dating. But when hunting for the right girl, any guy will tell you that distance ceases to be an issue.
I love to TRAVEL and EXPLORE too. 3-day weekend get-aways are typical and common. At least one overseas trip a year.
Festivals are like heaven to me. The outdoors generally are. I love all sorts of MUSIC in all languages. It is a shame that American music is so commercial that all that people listen to are the monotonous so-called mainstream artists. You don't need to understand the language to appreciate what is being sung. I hunt for my music on amazon/ebay and always go to listen to it live at the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago. That is a focal point for international musicians. I am a Sirius Radio subscriber too.
I am centrist but lean liberal for the most part. Some political agenda on either side scare the _______ out of me.
Felt like a transient for some time (as many immigrants do feel) until just 5 years ago when I decided to settle down and sought citizenship. For that reason never considered marrying or starting a family until 5 years ago. But not the guy that would marry or start a family for the sake. I am a "first things first" kind of guy. I always choose to do things the right way and never the easy way. I am better off being alone and happy than being miserable with someone constantly quarrelsome. At this time in my life I am my own man. So if what you do and what you are is based on the Jones’ ways and tastes, I am not your type of guy. It is called financial incompatibility. It is not all roses and I am not some deep pockets but I can say that I am a truly happy guy and rich at heart.
