The one thing I am passionate about...
I have a wide range of interests: I love music, books, arts, sports, working out, being out in nature. I love discussing ideas and current events. I have many close friends and family, and those relationships are central to my life.
I typically spend my leisure time
Exercising; relaxing with friends and family; watching sports or other TV; reading
The most influential person in my life has been
I am looking for someone whose close friends (and he has many) say, "He is a kind, funny guy I have known for years. He is steady - you can always rely on him." This is someone who has a full, happy life already and just wants to share that life with someone whose life is equally full and happy. He loves to laugh at himself and life's misadventures. He is generous in sharing his time with his loved ones: he feels lucky and he wants to share in his good fortune.
The first thing people notice about me
I am happy, funny, and a terrific listener. Once I get to know you, I am a hugger.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I have maybe a thousand books, and if I am feeling stressed, just looking at my bookshelves makes me feel centered. My most recent book was "Cutting for Stone." I greatly admire Abraham Verghese as a physician and writer. His first full-length novel was a tour de force that celebrated medicine, spirituality, humor, and friendship. It was a true celebration of humanity.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My close family and friends
- My health
- Knowing my core values and beliefs, as well as understanding the things that make me happy
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I have a natural reserve. I am not shy, but I don't give myself away entirely until I truly get to know you.
Friends Describe me as
Funny, Good listener, Hard Working, Sweet
A little more about me
I love to laugh and have fun. I am hard-working and intensely loyal. Life is too short not to be happy, so I am looking for someone who is already happy - and who wants to share his happiness with me. I am a joyful, calm person who will bring those qualities to your life. You can count on me: I want to be able to count on you.
