Living life with integrity is important to me. I'd like to leave the world a little better place. I believe the only way to make a relationship work is with honesty and respect and putting yourself completely and passionately into it. Would love someone who like me is laid back and loyal and wanting to support and be a positive cheer leader to the people around them. No one is perfect, we're all just trying to do the best we can right? It seems pointless to me to be critical about one another as long as we are living with integrity. I'm looking for a relationship where I can be myself and not be judged and my partner can do the same and we can relate, have each others backs and share in the adventure.
I believe in living life to its fullest and having fun but also living within your means, being a responsible adult and taking care of your responsibilities. I am not at all into the bar or party scene. I like to take things slow and get to know someone well before there is a lot of affection. Don't get me wrong I do love showing affection, but I'm choosy about the person I'm going to be affectionate with which means I have to get to know them a bit. In dating I like to get to know a person first and see if your goals and life views are a good match. I think the wooing, flirting and discovering the chemistry between people is important and fun.
I am looking for the kind of relationship where each partner sees the best in each other and each becomes better than they would have been on their own. Your partner's love and appreciation of you helps you to continue to believe more in yourself. And we accept each other as human beings with imperfections and do not judge each other on the little things.
I really appreciate people who are humble, genuine and just being themselves. I steer away from people who try to impress others with money or talk, people who seek attention, and people who are overly critical and negative. Life is too short to live like that! I tend to like quirky people who are just being themselves, people who aren't afraid to explore a less traveled path.
I'm also an introvert. Myers Briggs INFP. I can take time to warm up to people, but I have a lot of ideas floating around in my head to share and will do that with genuine, kind people. If you're the kind of person who has an opinion about everything or is always right you'll find that I don't really have much to say.
I'm at a really good place in my life. I know what I want. I've figured out that the only person you can ever really change is yourself, that you can fix anything in your life by changing your mind. I have all I need in life, what I'm looking for is the spice. A companion, friend, and partner to share the beauty and complexity of life's joys and sorrows.
I like going to those little small town festivals, music, gardening, reading, grilling, cooking, hiking, bonfires, learning new things and spending time outdoors. I am active and love trying new activities that work up a little adrenaline. I'm into the simple pleasures in life. I enjoy all kinds of people, especially people who are different then me because I love the way that makes you think outside your little world. It really makes you think and revaluate your own beliefs. I also work out 4 or more times a week and am in shape.
I love to cook and tend to do so towards the healthy side, but my love of food means I am easily swayed to the dark side.

Life would be dull without learning new stuff
Not very into material things
How many is that?
Learning new things. I seem to spend time researching, looking up info on the internet or with my nose in a book. Love documentaries! People come to me with problems and questions and I love to share knowledge.
And believe it or not I'm on an internet dating site. Ha!
I don't use the chat feature because I'm out doing things, so if you want to contact me you will need to send a message.
Too bad that I need to say this but please don't contact me if you're NOT SINGLE. Yes, I do understand that your situation is special and you're a really nice guy. Ha! The thing is I don't care what the situation is I really don't want to be involved in your drama. Thanks!
