Now about me, specifically? I do mirror the stereotype of the career-oriented young professional. For example, I check my work emails way too frequently. Similar to that joke about how easy it is to quit smoking, yes, I can put my phone down and stop thinking about work. I’ve done it thousands of times before.
Fortunately, there's more to me than work! I am a deeply driven guy that wants to reach the horizon. I maintain a very active lifestyle and split my activities up between the gym, yoga, running, rec-sports, and pick-up games of pretty much everything. Thanks in good part to my parent’s gentle prodding (or a swift kick in the rear-end if I was being lazy), I made it through scouting as an Eagle. My passion for the outdoors didn’t end there; I feel perfectly at home in the middle of nature. I also have begun scratching my travel itch. Hawaii, Germany, and Pakistan are checked off. Hong Kong is coming up in July!
My personality might be described as a combination of Maximus (remember the movie, Gladiator?), and maybe Deadpool. Strength and honor, but with a mischievous twist. Character and integrity are immensely important to me, but I love puns, am not afraid to be politically incorrect, and generally have an anything goes attitude towards life. This last point is particularly important to me because I spent a long time taking life way too seriously. Once learned how to relax a bit, my quality of life went through the roof.
Tl;dr: Basically, what I’m really looking for is someone that can be my other half; someone that shares similar moral convictions, is adventurous and optimistic about life, and seeks each day to be a little bit better than the day before.
Movies: Action, Comedy, or Sci-Fi. I'm not picky, please just have a good plot!
Music: My musical interests are all over the place. What I listen to generally reflects my mood. I'll go with up-beat instrumentals, meditative tracks, rock, and sometimes even that emo stuff that normal people drop after high school.
Food: I used to be Paleo, but I missed my morning carbs too much. Most of my diet still consists of fruits, veggies, and proteins.
