I would consider myself as someone who's smart, articulate, and loves great conversation. Deep conversation is my aphrodisiac! I'm originally from Wisconsin, and have been in Colorado for three years. I was raised by great parents with midwestern values. My Dad taught me how to be a strong confident man that can still be compassionate and considerate. He was always the first one to make sacrifices for the people he loves the most. ("I love you Dad!" - Frank the Tank, Old School) And my mom taught me resilience and understanding. I have to admit, I have a touch of hopeless romantic in me. But I tend to justify it as being "idealistic". I love making people happy, so naturally want to find someone special to make happy and be happy with. I'm excited to prove that chivalry is not dead, and good guys are alive.
I'm far from perfect, but another mantra I live by is "Mind, Body, Soul". I'm a very positive, considerate, and understanding person. I believe happiness is a choice we make every day. I also love acquiring acknowledge and tips for self improvement, no matter how trivial. Being a former athlete, I love to stay active and challenge myself whenever I can. I like to bike, run, lift, hike, yoga, and just started getting in to climbing. Pretty much anything that takes me outside. I cook quite often, so I eat healthy and live an overall healthy lifestyle. And my soul is something that I'm continually discovering and reaffirming. I search for any way possible to have a peaceful, compassionate, and forgiving heart. Overall, I would consider myself a very open-minded, well-rounded guy.
What I'm hoping to find: Someone that also lives an active lifestyle. Has her own goals and ambitions. I'm attracted to woman who are self-sufficient, strong, and independent, yet wants a partnership, teammate, and best friend. I want someone who makes me a better person, who I can fall in love with their laugh, their flaws, their heart, and their mind.
