I've heard that people somehow find me intimidating and it's completely a foreign concept to me. I'm not the most confident man out there and frequently find myself afraid to talk to a cute girl I haven't met before. Sure, I've done a lot in my life and I strive to be a high caliber gentleman, but I often feel overshadowed by others and their own accomplishments.
I spent a lot of my childhood on the St. Lawrence river. Boats and Scuba diving are almost a second nature to me as well as traveling through the woods and doing foolish things for other people's amusement.
I have a wealth of knowledge about the world we live in and I love having intelligent conversations. A smile on a pretty girl is IMHO one of the best sights in the world.
I've upgraded to a Canon 6D and have been enjoying being the photo guy within my group of friends. I've gotten some impressively beautiful shots with it.
I also recently got my paragliding P-2 certification. I can fly! "What's it like?" you might ask. Well, I see the tops of birds now.
I keep trying to make myself a better person. If it attracts quality women then all the better. If it doesn't, then my friends and family will remember me as awesome.
Good friends have told me that I give incredible massages.
I've recently discovered that around "normal" people I kick ass at "Cards Against Humanity". This came as a shock as I usually do poorly around my core group of friends.
People quickly learn that I'm very kind hearted. I'm quick to hold doors for others and I do my best to be gentlemanly. I'm usually smiling and engaging a conversation.
