My self-summary
Hi, thanks for taking a look at my profile. I'm very happy with my life but it would be nice to find someone to share everyday adventures with. The good and the bad because life is a roller coaster ride isn't it? A good friend who shares in the ups and downs but has a positive outlook on life. I take people as they are, not asking them to change to suit my desire or way of thinking.

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.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a technical illustrator. So I draw how to install things for technical manuals. Love my job which lets me be a little creative but I also have to be a little techie and figure out how things work. And I like being around techie people like engineers who just say it like it is.

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.
I’m really good at
I'm creative, positive, I feel blessed for all that I have, and am very responsible and good at living within my means. I love thrift stores and fixing things up or repurposing them into something better. It feels great finding something that would have been thrown out and making it something I love. I'm also not trying to charm anyone, I'm being true to who I am and hoping to find someone who thinks I'm pretty cool.
The first things people usually notice about me
I really don't know... if I spent all my time wondering what people notice about me I would miss out on a lot of really beautiful things.

Trying to get my 18 year old son to go out to eat and to a movie with me. Poor kid!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm attracted to geeky, nerdy, intelligent guys.

You should message me if
If you're NOT looking for a fling, FWB, or a one night stand. If you are genuine, honest, positive, kind to those around you. If you're looking for an exclusive long term relationship and able to pay your own bills please message me.

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!
The two of us
