I enjoy being outdoors but usually only during the warm weather months. I am not a huge fan of cold weather, although I don't mind a bit fun in the snow. I have been snow skiing but not for several years. One of these days I would love to try snowboarding. In my opinion, you cannot beat a warm and sunny Chicago afternoon. It is the perfect opportunity to just roam the city and explore. I am a sports fan and I am fairly athletic. I love playing volleyball and I am usually on a beach league during the summer and try to play on indoor leagues throughout the year. I am a baseball (Cubs) and football (Bears) fan and I try to make it to at least one Bears game each year and usually make it to a handful of baseball games.
I like staying active and I am always looking for something to do. I've flown through the air on a flying trapeze and on a hang glider, both of which were absolutely amazing! I have gone to a couple of different cooking classes - love that they are byob. And, being a resident of this beautiful city, I have of course taken in some shows and comedy acts. I have been fortunate enough to do some traveling and have had some adventures along the way - swimming with manatees, sting rays, dolphins, and a sea otter. I've also been parasailing and zip lining. Next on the list is maybe rock climbing. I'm not sure yet, but I'm sure I'll think of something. I'm a bit of a thrill seeker :)
Like most, I like going out to restaurants, catching movies, and might as well throw in dancing for good measure. Like I said above, I also like going to comedy shows and listening to live music. But, there are those days that I'd rather curl up on the couch with a good book and a nice glass of wine or may be some hot cocoa.
I am looking for someone that knows what he wants and isn't afraid to go after it; someone who is driven and ambitious. But, I don't take myself too seriously and like to be goofy. So I'd like to meet someone that doesn't take himself too seriously and will be silly with me. Mostly, I would like to find someone who wants to explore the city and share new experiences.
