I've learned so much about myself in the last two years. Thinking about life and relationships NOT from a standpoint of what I can get out of it, but what I can give to others and contribute. That's not a line but something I have heartfully felt.
Honestly, two years ago I went through some hard times but came out of it stronger and made a re-commitment to my faith. I am not going to push or proselytize anything, but I know what looking for in a relationship, and it does include having God at the center of it. Just being upfront...
Not to say I'm *good* at either of them, but I golf in the summers, and play basketball the winters, though not as much as I used to.
For fitness, I run in the summer and try to do P90 in the winters, although my commitment seems to lag when the snow flies. I have become a fairly serious runner, although I'd like to get more serious. I keep increasing my goals; two years ago I ran my first 5K since high school, followed by a few more. This year in 2013, I ran my first half-marathon.
Second and third impression is almost always that I'm a nice, intelligent guy -- the type of guy who holds doors open for people.
This summer's reading material is a mix of some alt history... "Fox on the Rhine" and "Fox at the Front" (WWII alt history), and a few golf books ("Spirit of St Andrews" and "The Anatomy of a Golf Course: The Art of Golf Architecture").
In general, 80s, 90s alternative, particular artists - Mellencamp, Springsteen, the Eagles, Cake
Food: spicy foods, ribs, pizza, Mexican
Movies: I see that I somehow removed the movie section at some point. Some of my faves are Gladiator, Hoosiers, Tin Cup, Office Space, Idiocracy, and recently Tron Legacy.
I also think quite a bit about choices I've made thus far in my life, and how much the early choices (and the choices I chose not to make) have affected me for better or worse.
Also, as I said above, I am a Christian, and I would like to pursue someone with a similar background. It would be nice to be able to have a partner who can talk about the difference God has made in their life.
OK, now for some completely trivial details:
* I was the 1992 Indiana State Geography Bee champion (yes, such a thing exists). It's like a Spelling Bee for people who never get lost and can't spell.
* In the 2010 and again in 2011, I tore my ACL in my right knee. Long rehabs are no fun.
