I think I lead a pretty interesting life. I teach, I travel A LOT (I freaking love it), I perform in everything from live theatre to ska and worship bands, and I run in marathons and mud runs. I like intelligent conversation and hate sitting still. I love to try new things. I'll try anything twice. If you want to SCUBA dive, sky dive, bungee jump, whatever, just let me know...I'm up for it.
I am NOT looking for someone to keep up with me. I've coached track long enough to know that if your goal is to keep up, you've already lost. I need someone to challenge me. I need the woman who is right now thinking to herself, "Yeah? Is that all you got?" Yes, you. You're the one I'm looking for. I mean that physically and intellectually. In fact, intellect attracts me as much, if not more than, physical beauty. Yes, I'm still shallow and attracted to a gorgeous face...but I need to be able to talk to the gorgeous face, as well.
Amendment: Please know the difference between "their", "there" and "they're". Sorry, to me they've become an excellent indicator of intellectual compatibility.
Amendment 2: For those who are wondering about my preferred age range. There are 2 reasons. First, 90% of my friends (male and female) are 8 to 10 years younger than me. It just seems to be the crowd I'm attracted to. Second, I want to have at least one more child. The biology and math speaks for itself on that one. Hope that helps explain things, a bit.
I recently had a couple of epiphanies. The first is that I just really enjoy life. I've never been to a bad movie and I've never had a bad date. I have just experienced movies and dates that a) I will never repeat and b) give me great conversation fodder. Life, for me, starts at fun and goes up from there. Either I'm too stupid to realize the magnitude of the situation or I've finally learned that there's just nothing worth losing sleep over. Second, I realized that I want a girl who makes me want to put my phone down. I rarely, if ever, have my phone in my hand when I have my son. I can't. I'm too afraid I'll miss something. I want a girl who makes me forget I have a phone. Is that too much to ask?
