The one thing I am passionate about...
Improving myself - learning, being happy with who I am but always continuing to better myself.I want to be happy and content on a day to day basis, don't want to have to look forward to special occasions to feel a need to celebrate!
I typically spend my leisure time
Weight lifting - I'm a on again, off again weight lifter, more on than off. Always looking for new techniques and methods.Active professional level photographer, I do mainly portraiture but have dabbled in macro and abstract.I like technology and movies, don't watch as many as I'd like and have a hard time staying on top of new stuff, generally a year or so behind the curve - at least.I have a pretty strong nerd streak believe it or not, must be tolerant or join in with me :)
The most influential person in my life has been
Not sure there's one specific! Balanced (though we all have our own quirks and things to overcome!), thoughtful, dedicated, some sort of goal in life, the ability to be energetic and driven but balanced out with the ability to relax.Hygiene can never be emphasized enough!A good laugh, a smiley disposition, intelligent.. although that doesn't necessarily mean genius, just common sense to some point at least. Not a flake, someone will make time for me and is serious about things - not just a general flirt with everybody and play the field.
The first thing people notice about me
I'm easy to talk to and do a good job at engaging somebody. I'm a big guy, 6'5" and until people talk to me they tend to be a little cautious.I'm told my smile is the selling point. One thing I've been told off of this site is that I look like a muscle-head and that made them hesitate talking to me - I guarantee the well is deeper than it appears. I'm not all about "look at my bicep", I just enjoy the gym and good health but I spend less than 5 hours a week in the gym :)
The last book I read and enjoyed
"Something For The Pain", I don't know how to describe it, think of it as a biography on the life of an ER Doctor, great read - I enjoyed the day to day challenges he faces and to see the line of thinking doctors, especially one in a high pressure environment, go through. Was addicting!
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My health!
- Opportunities given that I took!
- Great network of support!
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That what I say is usually what I mean - I guess it's not all that common, especially in Vegas.Aaaaand probably the fact that I'm looking for a partner and not some sort of hook up. I figured that part would make it easy to at least meet sincere people but possibly it's not that believable? ;)
Friends Describe me as
Creative, Energetic, Hard Working, Intelligent
A little more about me
I'm an honest to goodness nice guy. Maybe it's just because I live in Vegas but I have no interest in hook-ups or party girls. I'm looking for someone to be dedicated to me, and vice-versa. I'm jealous of friends who say their significant other/wife is their best friend because that's what I want, someone I can share everything with and not only will they not run away but bring them even closer to me.I'm the real deal, just need to find someone who is too.
