My self-summary

Ideally I'd like to find someone who's independent-minded but wants to come along with me on my adventures.

A little about me:

-Even though I, too, love to laugh, I often cringe when I see "I love to laugh!" on profiles. Yeah, and we all travel and love Mexican food and have amazing friends!

-I'm a fan of non-conformity. I think downtime is an important part of an adventurous life, but I've never understood following tradition for tradition's sake. I like to change things up and not interested in following society's rules (although I've heard I clean up okay).

-Related to the last point, I'm into trying new things, and I'm open to new ideas. I've got my opinions but I can be corrected! I I think I'm pretty good at empathizing with others and not taking things personally if we disagree. I think it's important to learn all though life, not just go "okay, now that I'm x age, I'm done learning."

-Freedom is my most important value. Without freedom, life isn't fun or rewarding. This applies to relationships too- each person must be free within a relationship, or it won't really work.

-I'm curious. "Love is 3 quarters curiosity" is what some guy named Casanova said. If both of us are curious about each other and about life, and finding truth, that's a great start!

-I'm an entrepreneur. This goes along with the freedom thing. It also means that things aren't always consistent....but I'm okay with that. My current business has allowed me to not just travel but live in other places, most recently in Finland (can tell you why later...)

-I value honesty and clear communication highly. It sounds cliche, but without this, it's no fun for everyone and pretty soon you're married for 40 years and just bickering about everything, wondering how you got here.

If you're reading this and you're thinking 'this guy sounds like he might be interesting', but you're not sure what to say in your email to me, just say hi.

The reality is that unlike you lovely girls, us guys don't get 50 emails a day from new potential suitors - we're lucky if we get 1. So if you send me an email, no matter what it says, I'll check out your profile (starting with your pics, I am a bit shallow like that), and get back to you if you and your profile float my boat.

Anyway if this all sounds appealing (and cheers if you read the whole thing), say hi!
What I’m doing with my life
I'm going on an adventure! I really like seeing new places, checking out hole-in-the wall great restaurants, playing games, playing sports and having new challenges regularly in my life. I've recently taken interest in the mobile business lifestyle. I used to do a lot of endurance-type sports but enjoying random fun stuff now like rock climbing, paddle boarding, and climbing trees!

On a typical Friday night I am
Rolling in the deep.
