My self-summary
I moved to VA Beach for my job in April 2009. I'm still loving it here. I bought my first house in 2012.

I enjoy hanging out with friends, hiking the mountains, riding my bike, casually swimming, and walking the board walk at the beach.

My main focus on this site is to find someone to settle down, start a family, and spend the rest of my life with.

As for what I'm looking for, my list is huge and contradictory. I tend to see myself with one of three types of women:

1) Businesswoman - a company owner or MBA type who understands the work it takes to build something. Families are essentially a type of corporation, and will grow best with investment, energy, and planning.

2) Family-oriented. My search for this type of woman is predominantly outside of the U.S. I'm sure these women exist in the U.S., but they are already married at my age. Я немного понимаю по-русский. Я хочу знать больше.

3) Intellectual - someone who enjoys discussing philosophy, psychology, science, etc.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a full-time software/web application developer for an international media organization. I enjoy what I do and work long hours, focusing mainly on a website for a children's television program.

I've also started branching out and using my skills and ideas to start a business of my own, so that I can achieve financial independence.

A few years ago I started exercising and made permanent changes in my diet to help get myself back in shape. I've lost a lot of weight, and more impressively, successfully kept it off. I'm still slowly losing weight at a healthy rate towards my goal, but I can confidently now mark my profile as no longer "obese" or "extra", as I'm in what's considered "Normal" body fat now =)

The first things people usually notice about me
The values that others have stated they appreciate in me are:
My calm demeanor: I do not get angry.
Logical and insightful: I actually win arguments with women, AND make them happy about it.
Meditative, firm grasp of human psychology. I actually understand how to create happiness, and how to bring someone to a state of peace.

I am also a bit of a study in contradictions:
I am simultaneously progressive and traditional/old-fashioned.
I have a dominant personality, and choose to put others first.
I want a passionate, kinky sexual relationship, in which the sex is secondary to more important, solid aspects like dedication and devotion.

I suppose what's really important is what I see in myself. That can be summed up in three words:

CHIVALRY, CHIVALRY, CHIVALRY!!! This is my highest calling in life, not just towards dating, but in all aspects. To me, this means putting someone ahead of one's self in order to do what is the right thing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
TV Shows - Doctor Who, Lost, Family Guy, Futurama, Burn Notice, Full Metal Alchemist

Movies = The Truman Show, Gattaca,The Neverending Story, Star Wars, 50 First Dates, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter... pretty much anything sci-fi or fantasy. I also like dramas.

Music - I can't get through my day without some Lady Gaga, P!NK, Shakira, Rhianna, or Sara Bareilles
Six things I could never do without
Goals: Once all the basic needs are taken care of, what's the point of being comfortable and content? If you're not moving forward, why are you here?

Google: Why read/keep a book when you can look up almost anything you ever want to know within a matter of seconds?

Family: I love my parents, and I don't know what I'd do without them.

Friends: I don't have a whole lot of friends, but the few I do have mean the world to me.

Work: While goals tend to give work direction, it is work itself that makes life meaningful.

Vegetables. Seriously. I'm not a vegetarian (although maybe some day). I eat about as many raw vegetables as a human being should eat, and it blows people's minds.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Goals, making my dreams reality, helping people, making the world a better place.

It sounds cliche, but if I could get out of my life right now and do it all over, I'd just want to be an EMT or firefighter. Financial success is empty.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working on my side business.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Nothing in this public profile. Message me and you might be surprised though ;)
You should message me if
You're classy, intelligent, open-minded, and interested in a serious relationship, or a friends-first relationship. Don't bother if you're just looking for a casual fling.
The two of us
