Back on a dating site for the first time in 6 years. Deep breath... here we go! Reader's Digest condensed version: I am an adventurous, fun, funny intelligent, educated, active, open minded, compassionate (and passionate) guy who is emotionally stable with little baggage. I am an optimistic, caring, happy person, with low drama, no anger, smoking, or drinking issues. I am a good communicator. I know chemistry is important. If it seems possible with me give it a shot. I am a photographer and a college professor, hoping you are sapiosexual. :)
Female friends of mine tell me that finding a guy on Maui who has a car, a steady job, and his own place is a catch. By that definition I am a catch! lol But I want someone who wants more!
Some of my passions are photography, travel, dancing, volleyball, reading, the ocean, and much more (maybe you?). I like my job, my family, my friends - life is great! I believe in carpe diem and joie de vivre - bonus points if you know what these mean without looking them up! :) Life is an adventure to be enjoyed!
I have a wonderful family I am still close to, even though they are in the Midwest. I enjoy being outside. I like playing guitar, riding my motorcycle, and writing. I also enjoy tennis, SCUBA, hiking, snorkeling and trying new things, any ideas?
I even like to slow down and watch a movie sometimes, especially if it is with someone special. Cuddle time is sweet. I am a creative, articulate, passionate person who enjoys life and loves to laugh. I am caring, considerate, romantic and thoughtful, and I am easy to talk with and get along with. My ex-girlfriends are not ex-friends. Even though things didn't work out with them (there aren't THAT many of them! lol) for different reasons, they would all give me a positive reference. They consider me a nice guy... with an edge.
I like the ocean, beaches, mountains, waterfalls, rainbows, candles, music and... obviously not at a loss for words. :) I am emotionally available, not a "playah", honest, and trustworthy and... sounds like I am making a sales pitch! Oh wait, I guess I kind of am! lol
What am I looking for? Two items that are more important than any others to me - chemistry and attitude, they trump all. Chemistry because if there isn't that click then why bother? Attitude because if ours work well together I will look forward to seeing you and will enjoy just being with you. Part of that attitude is that you must love to laugh!
IF I were to make a longer "ideal" list?? How about someone who truly enjoys life, who is active, educated, creative, healthy, funny, spontaneous, happy, emotionally well-adjusted, independent, articulate, intelligent, somewhat feisty, strong (physically, mentally and emotionally), attractive, confident and fun to be with! I like sweet, caring, considerate, thoughtful people. Being open minded and adventurous and willing to try new things are all good too! Someone who enjoys their work, and is close to their family is nice too. This IS ideal, right? You don't have to be all of these things, just dreaming...
I am NOT looking for drama, anger, or high maintenance, nor am I that way. I like people who are comfortable in their own skin, and with who they are. I also need to be with someone who enjoys physical interactions as much as I do; from holding hands to cuddling to kissing to... well, more!
When I look into your eyes I need to see something special, since eyes are windows to our souls. Have you ever noticed that some people burn a little brighter, with a special spark of awareness and consciousness in their eyes, that their motor runs a little faster, and longer? Know what I mean? Is this you? If so, awesome! Let's talk!
Did you actually get this far?? lol If you did, and you find the possibilities intriguing, write me. I am looking for something truly special, as I am sure you are. I know you have kissed a few frogs that remained frogs, but try again... it really will be worth it!
Only thing missing is the right person to share it with. :)
I am good at connecting with people. I am also good at loving and being loved - coming from a very big and loving family. And I am good at intimacy, which is more than just sex...
I like well made movies in most genres, but do like SF&F, comedies, sometimes movies that go boom, or movies of a serious nature. I do not watch horror movies, but suspense can be good.
I like TV shows Eureka and Fringe - smart and quirky, like me? lol
I do like to read, more fiction than non, since I have to read textbooks for my work. I like well written SF&F - love the creativity and imagination.
Grew up in the Midwest on meat, potatoes, bread, vegetables, fruit, and of course desert! :) Simple fare, but I still like it. Living on Maui for 10 years I have learned to like a little more, but still pretty simple in this area.
Food (including desert!)
Living life by my own rules, like not sticking to six things! :P
Also, so many profiles say "edited by ..." - I kind of like seeing what people write without editors, so I can see how they express themselves on their own. lol
You like the idea of living on Maui, it really IS paradise. :)
If you believe in carpe diem and joie de vivre (bonus points if you know what these mean without looking them up! lol) let's talk! :)
