My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Deep in his heart, every man longs for a battle to fight, an adventure to live, and a beauty to rescue. These are my reasons for giving Okstupid a chance.

I date with intention and don't date just for recreation.

I believe life isn't about finding the right person, it is about becoming the right kind of person. Who am I becoming everyday? And how are those around me, helping me to become the "who" I want to be?

Also... I believe that its easy to take off your clothes and have sex, people do it all the time, but letting people into your spirit, your soul, your future, fears, dreams, hopes... That is really getting naked.

If you are into personality/strengths test...

ENFJ on the meyers briggs

Adaptability, Woo, Strategic, Includer, & Communicative for the strengths finders 2.0 test.

WARNING: Let's just get this straight... If you don't like beards or any facial hair; it's over... Don't click "yes" - I'm not shaving for you. :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm spending my life riding the ponies at the walmart... I'll be done when I run out of quarters.

I don't take myself too seriously.
I prefer a simple life.

I believe in God as much as I believe the sun has risen. Not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else. I think that is something CS Lewis said that I am just paraphrasing and believe to be true for me. So Jesus is my homeboy! I may not be perfect, but he seemed to think I was to die for. ;)

If you are in the boat of not being open minded enough for faith, then this will never work. Everyone believes in something.

Yet the belief I hold is a journey, something I am relying on and growing in my understanding of, and something I am processing through. We all have a lot to humbly learn from each other and from old ratty books that ancients fought to navigate through this life. So I'll do my best at that and love.

With that said, I don't consider myself to be religious... Yet, I do have faith.

About clothing: Comfortable is sexy.

I am a godfather to 2 awesome children and another one that I am putting on ebay; if you are interested i'll send you a link. I don't have children of my own, but I certainly feel like a big brother/father figure to many.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I can go 3 weeks without food, 3 days without water, and 3 seconds without love.

Good stuff starts with F (Bahaha!!!)
1. Faith
2. Family
3. Friends
4. Food
5. Fresh water
6. Fitness
7. Forgiveness
8. Fire

So I didn't color in the lines by doing 8; if you wanna talk - get use to this!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What brought people to the place they are at...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It depends on the temperature.
These days my fridays have consisted of working - then a country music concert or bonfire. Random trips out of town for the weekend (nashville, denver, indy). Sometimes it's netflix, but i'd rather go out if I have anything to do with it.
