Life is an interesting, beautiful, and sometimes hilarious journey. We all have our own path filled with hopes, dreams, and expectations. When two different paths meet, it's an amazing thing. Regardless of the outcome, I think both parties learn something from each other. I'm beginning to realize that life is all about developing and nurturing the relationships we have with others.
It all boils down to one thing: love. To quote The Perks of Being a Wallflower, "We accept the love we think we deserve." The problem is, we all have a tendency to put up walls or put on masks to hide our true personalities. In other words, we sell ourselves short. If someone can't accept and love you for who you really are, maybe that person doesn't deserve you. Too often we try to impress others by showing who we aren't rather than who we are.
Now, I know that was pretty deep for an online dating profile, but it's something I feel needed to be said. I'm beginning to realize that judgment by others really shouldn't matter. If you think the former paragraphs make me sound a little too sensitive for you, that's perfectly fine. I wish you well in your own journey. If anything I said struck a chord or intrigued you, I invite you to read on to learn a little more about me.
I'm just a normal guy who likes to go out and try new things. I feel like I am more adventurous when I am dating someone, maybe because I like to share experiences with others. I would love to try out your hobbies. I might find something I would have never thought I would like.
I have two dogs who are basically my kids. They enjoy terrorizing my house guests and occasionally peeing on the floor. I imagine that's fairly similar to having kids. I have learned a lot from owning dogs. They are amazing creatures.
I go to the gym often and enjoy staying in shape. I typically lift weights, but I also do yoga and run from time to time.
Like just about everyone, I have my quirks. I don't eat a lot of things for health purposes. I could go into a 2 hour lecture why, but you would probably rather enjoy watching paint dry, grass grow, etc.
I have a unique talent for winning radio contests where you have to call up and be caller number x (Sometimes you have to answer a question too). Since high school, I have probably won about 10 times. You should be jealous or impressed. Maybe both.
I am not a religious person, but I do accept the beliefs of others. I have realized that having dichotomous religious beliefs doesn't mean our core values are all that different. In the past, I have been guilty of writing off people for their religious views, and that is just a silly thing to do. I would hope that you think the same. I find religion to be a fascinating topic of discussion.
