My self-summary
I have come to appreciate and want what it seems many of people are looking for.... a relationship, a career and job I love, a partner in crime, to go on adventures small and grand, a furry friend, settle into a home, have a kid, enjoy the little things....Isn't it just that simple ?

-Wants to be a relationship, but the "right" relationship
-Wants to have adventures, of all kinds, simple to complex, local and distant, road trips and planed,
-Enjoys outdoor various activities/game/sports, but not a superior athlete or expert, play for enjoyment.
-Values the simple things in life
-Enjoys events but does not seek out large crowds often
-Not bound by exorbitant amount of material things
-Live a thrifty lifestyle, pennies add up, stretch your dollars
-Frequently casual comfortable, but not apposed to dressing up
-Night in can be just as good as a night out
-Not locked into current living area, but enjoys idea of settling into a community
-Learn by doing, get a visual interpretation
-Desires (in good time) to have one or more ideals fellow peers have figured out...significant other, home, kids, career opportunities, etc...
-Enjoy cooking/grilling, not saying I am great at it, and using whats is available to make something tasty... (always have leftovers when available)
-Honestly may relish the opportunity to raise kids (not being the breadwinner)
-Open minded and respectful (as that is all I want in return)
-Wishes to affect others
-Learn new things. have new experiences

Can you find some connection with these ideals? I am not perfect, but is that really what you want? Perfection? Practice makes better....
I want you like me for me and for all I am, with a respectful and open mind...
The most successful relationships are with two independent people.
"Its not the breaths we take, but the moments that take our breath way"
Any of this make sense ?
Let's discuss
What I’m doing with my life
A variety of things....looking for a shift in work opps.....doing what I enjoy.....affecting people positively.....bringing new challenges and experience to the world.....traveling.....enjoying myself...... Recently looking into other community based positions blending recreation, education, youth development, community service, etc
Having outdoor adventures...
Work with kids in social work and hope to break into student development on the college and high school level as a professional.
I’m really good at
I am a well rounded person. I do anything and everything sports or outdoor related. I just continue to try new things. I am not really an “expert” at anything.

here's a random list.....
skiing, teaching snowboarding, guiding rafts, cooking without recipes, grilling, cat napping, bargain hunting, volunteering, playing in the snow, reading maps, mural panting, paddling, cuddling, giving massages, Frisbee, pint glass collecting from bars, setting up a tent, sharpening skis, eating cheese, smiling, playing with kids, chipping golf balls, playing and coaching lacrosse, surfing my boat, one handed clapping, starting a fire, pumping gas, growing facial stubble, running around barefoot, putting on flip flops, misplacing glasses, mixing lemonade, first aid, rolling my tongue, packing for a trip, maneuvering through white water, helping others, creating bucket lists....what else....just ask...
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm short. It is what it is, Hope you can handle it. I look younger than I am, so I have been supporting a light beard,
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - murder mysteries, adventure stories, how to, travel, good variety......more engaged with books on tape/cd as an auditory learner.

Movies - Generally a movie buff, action, comedy, chick flicks, dramas, horror, cartoons, etc.

Shows - I have gotten into the binge watching crazy. I don't pay that much attention to new shows coming out but then later get hooked on them, then need to get caught up on multiple seasons at a time......How I Met Your Mother, Dexter, the 4400, The Firm, Parenthood, Law and Order SVU, the Office, Royal Pains, Psych......what else can you get me hooked to?

Music - I listen to a variety of stuff. I have many mixes, but recently I like more acoustical, live, and covers performances.
Acoustical Sunrise on the radio is excellent!

Food - I am not picky, willing to try anything!
I will eat all kind of cuisines...cheese and sometimes bacon makes everything better
The six things I could never do without
my car
a backpack
outdoor toys (paddle, snowboard, pfd, etc)
warm hat

being near water or mountains

mmm, I can't count apparently
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the future
next travel destination, vacation, road trips
sports and recreation, things I want to try
job opportunities
where I could relocate to
fun activities I can do with mentees/youth
young people in my life, friends kiddos
gas prices
how to save pennies for bigger things
making things better, always wanting to improve myself
expanding the social circle

What the word "dating" infers. I just want to simply find a connection and go from there too much pressure with dating?

"Ladies… real men do exist; there aren’t many of us, but we’re survivors and will be around for a while. Come find us."
On a typical Friday night I am
Never a typical Friday night.....out and about, going on a road trip, laying low and relaxing, I just go with the flow, I'm up for suggestions !
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
What do you want to know? Im an open book
You should message me if
you are in New England, I have done the distance thing before few hour road trip, it can be rewarding in my opinion. Don't let distance be the deal breaker.

You are open minded and try new things
You have respect for others interests
You realize that first impressions that are made right off the bat could very well be completely different from another interaction in a different environment or setting
You like to explore and have adventures
You know what you want out of life, want to make a real connection
You want something real

-Anything mentioned in the summary makes sense to you.
