I enjoy being around family, friends and people in general. If I can do something that contributes to the delight of someone, I'm usually up for it. Love to entertain/showoff and like to do so by having folks over for a good meal. I believe everything happens for a reason and sometimes that reason is obvious, sometimes not, but I will always try to find the good in any situation.
When given a choice, I will choose happiness. I believe failure brings me one step closer to success. I get a great deal of pleasure using my creativity to surprise others. I always try to see the best in any situation and I'm deeply touched by how lucky I am.
Being a social person I enjoy doing lots of stuff with my significant other. I'm not looking for a workout buddy nor am I willing to be one. I'm not interested in trying to rival Rick Steves in acquiring cultural knowledge but experiencing some of what our planet offers would be great. Nightclubs and bars just ain't my style. I'd rather enjoy a restaurant with a few friends or just my SO. But the restaurateur inside me absolutely loves entertaining at home. I kinda like to make folks happy and show off at the same time. I'm no desert rat nor do I care for LA. The mountains, coast and places like San Francisco are more to my liking, as long as it involves a B&B.
All I ask it that you be grounded, honest, open, relish our differences and want a best friend.
