The one thing I am passionate about...
I'm passionate about learning as much as I can to grow as a person. My life is turning out amazing, and I have been able to accomplish this through hard work, perseverance, and liberal amounts of fun. I have been lucky to travel the world and be accompanied on many of those trips by my children. So much has been learned through these shared experiences about both the world and myself, and I am always ready for my next adventure.
I typically spend my leisure time
My two great loves are my children and spending time outdoors, and I am happiest when I can combine the two. I love to travel, preferably with my children or friends, and would love to meet someone who is interested in trotting the globe with me. I also love to cook, whether it?s at home for myself and family, or at a cook-off, pitting my recipes against others. When I am at home relaxing I like to kick back with a good book or a game on TV and just let the world pass me right by.
The most influential person in my life has been
Honesty and integrity are the most important qualities that I am looking for in a partner. There are always times, no matter how strong a person you are, that you must rely on someone else. I would like to find that person, and in order to truly create that bond, there has to be open lines of communication and trust. I would like to find a woman I can open my life to and is interested in doing the same. I think that the best relationships are composed of people with independent passions who come together to support one another and grow as a couple.
The first thing people notice about me
I have been told that people find me very easy to talk to. Perhaps it is because of my career as a physician, but I am able to find common ground with people and make them feel comfortable. I think people also notice that I am a very sincere person; I say what I mean and I do my best to keep people smiling.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I really enjoy mysteries and thrillers, particularly those psychological thrillers by Dan Brown that touch on history and religion. My favorite of his is probably "Angels and Demons," both for the controversies it highlights and the amazingly detailed descriptions of the beauty of Italy and the Vatican. Reading mysteries is a great escape for me, and I can?t seem to get enough.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Close relationships with family and friends
- A career that I love
- Living in such a wonderful place
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
While people certainly feel comfortable upon meeting me, they may not realize that I am a truly caring individual, beyond any charm I might have : ) I like to consider myself the opposite of prejudiced, I feel that there is a place for everyone, and I do my best to reflect that belief. I am a man of many layers, and of course, it may take some time for new people in my life to unravel them. An onion without the smell, perhaps : )
Friends Describe me as
Generous, Hard Working, Physically Fit, Respectful
A little more about me
I am a very driven person, and proud of both my professional accomplishments and my personal ones, particularly my children. I am looking for someone that I can share my life with, someone with whom I can balance responsibilities, passions, dreams, and love. I would like to find a relationship where we will both become better people simply because we are together. And together, as a team, laugh and tackle any obstacle that may come!
