My name is Ben, and I'll warn you upfront, I'm a little goofy, a little silly, and a little ADD. Little known fact, did you know that if you rub two lobsters together vigorously, they produce enough static electricity to restart a human heart? That makes the lobster, nature's defibrillator. (I'm just full of interesting little tidbits like these)
Sorry what was I talking about? Oh yeah, dating profiles... Anyway, I've been in Colorado just about my whole life. I grew up in a little mountain town, went to school at CSU, moved down to Lakewood about 4 years ago, and bought a place. I like Colorado quite a bit. I like climbing, hiking, camping, caving, rafting, basically anything outdoors. I like the mountain man lifestyle, so I'm doing my best to acquire a large flannel collection and grow a large beard.
I'm back in school right now but should be wrapping it all up around July. I was working a sales job that I didn't like and now I'm studying GIS. SCIENCE! I'm excited because I'm doing something I like again.
Anyway, I'm looking for someone down to earth, someone who I can be silly with. I still do little kid activities like wake up early, eat cereal, and watch cartoons. I play a bunch of different instruments and sing, so I enjoy gals who are also musically appreciative or inclined.
I've got two pugs who are doing their best to either destroy my property, or commit suicide. I'm kidding. (Sort of) They have been a ton of fun and they are really sweet funny little guys.
I'm not very materialistic and I've bought most of the material items I want at this point in my life. Now I'm trying to save up my cash so I can spend it on traveling, or other experiences. In the last few years I've been to Belgium, The Netherlands, Mexico, and The Dominican Republic, Ireland, and Belize. I got scuba certified, I've done 8 dives so far including a few with some rather large bull sharks. I was thinking maybe New Zealand for the next stint. If you want to throw on a backpack and catch the next flight to the Andes or Alaska I wouldn't object either...
Summing up, I'm hoping to find a outgoing, outdoorsy, artistic, goofball. I really am in that 6'4"-6'5" ish range, so it is nice dating other people who are good at reaching things off the top shelf, but it's not a requirement. If you'd like to chat, I'd love to get a message from you.
