Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Update: Pursuing a special woman to see where it leads.
I have great friends from hometown and college, but distance and
the responsibilities of most of their families keep me from
spending as much time with them as I might like.
My family (6 siblings with families) is not constantly in each
others lives, but we all get along and are glad to see each other
when we do get together.
I have been in a long term relationship, and have regained the
comfort of being myself without needing someone else, but I would
like to share a life with someone I love.
I am not an extrovert, but with those I know, I often bring life to
the party (infectious off the wall silliness/humor, deep
conversation, or both). It takes time to get to know me but I like
to believe that those that do, think highly of me.
I want to think, laugh, and share life with those I care for.
I want to build and support things (products, friendships, a life)
that I can be proud of.
It would be nice to find a friend to share and do things with
(talk, cook, dine, bike, travel, etc...), to keep growing, and to
stay healthy. If this turned out to be a best friend, great. If
this turned out to be a love, what more can be asked.
Patient and Honest.
Analytic and Sensitive.
Serious and Silly.
Often witty and fun.
I am a perfectionist and am uncompromising on things that are
important to me. I am loyal. I try to do the right thing.
I am almost always thinking and am sometimes stuck in it.
I do not care for politics (the acquisition and maintenance of
power through the manipulation of voters), but I do strongly favor
policies and agendas that benefit all citizens (not special
groups), when the policies are needed (conservative), and that stay
out of the way of individual citizens when they are not needed
I respect my catholic upbringing and religion/faith in general
without having a strong religious practice myself, though I would
be open to sharing a partner's practice in the right
I love to travel and do new things with someone willing to share
them or discover them with me.
I would not claim to be an athlete, but I do enjoy trail and
mountain biking and am looking for more activities. Skiing and
dancing might be good winter activities, but it would be nice to
have a partner.
I love to try new restaurants and cooking dishes from all over the
world. I love to cook new recipes with friends for friends. It is
like a dance in the kitchen - only you get to make and then eat
something unique and wonderful from another part of the world with
them when you are done.
