My self-summary
***I met a wonderful, interesting, and lovely lady here and am currently off the market and happily dating. I hope you find somebody as beautiful inside and out as she.***

I'm a nice, often quirky, sometimes intense guy. I'm looking for friends, relationships, and hopefully that somebody who makes my heart flutter whenever I see her, but most of all to enjoy the journey along the way.

I am prone to strange jokes, obscure references and a maelstrom of minutia.

I dance poorly, but I dance. I sing poorly and you'll be thankful that I don't. I cook well, but prefer to do it for others rather than myself.

After gradauting college (WMU) I went off for travels and work only to return to Kalamazoo a few years ago. I still love to travel and explore the world both near and far. Lately I have been exploring more of the US, but most of my travels have involved Europe and South Africa.

Most recent trip: 150th Anniversary of Gettysburg.
What I’m doing with my life
I am trying to fit into a new position at work, (promoted!) looking for new adventures and travels, and trying to find the answer to it all. I am reading more and resolved to excersize more as well.
I’m really good at
Impromptu travel fun. I like sorting things out on the fly. I like solving problems. Cooking chicken and finding completely new dishes when trying to recreate recipes.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not sure. Probably that I'm easily laugh, make jokes, and sometimes talk a lot.

Six things I could never do without
In no particular order...

-Family. Don't always need to be near them, but I do enjoy being in touch with them.
-Friends. Much like family, they are great, and make life worth living. Isn't that why we're here? To build relationships and enjoy experiences together?
-Travel. I have to see the world around me. 31 countries and counting!
-Food. Okay, some might have this higher on the list, if speaking literally, but I enjoy trying diverse food and drink.
-Intellectual stimulation. The idle mind is a dead mind. I like a good conversation, a good book, an interesting geological formation...
-Shelter. As much as I can go without it for short periods when traveling or camping, I wasn't meant to live with long periods of exposure.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where to travel to next.... caribean, Europe, someplace exotic? Sports, books, politics, the meanings of life all occupy my mind frequently.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with friends, watching a movie, having dinner or a drink.
You should message me if might be interested in finding out more!
The two of us
