The one thing I am passionate about...
Reading is probably my greatest passion. I have lived overseas and in some of the great cities in the country and seeking out new experiences, whether that be traveling or meeting interesting people or trying out new restaurants, is very important to me.
I typically spend my leisure time
My greatest indulgence during the week is hopefully having an hour or so to read - both books and magazines. I spend a lot of leisure time traveling to different cities to visit family and friends. I love to watch college sports but that takes up increasingly less of my time and interest. Getting in some exercise five times a week to remain active and healthy is important to me as well.
The most influential person in my life has been
One quality very important to me in someone else is a strong sense of self. For me that entails a grounded, down to earth personality and an utter disregard for trying to "keep up with the Jones'." Few things are as attractive to me as those comfortable with and confident of themselves within their own skin.
The first thing people notice about me
Others usually take notice quickly that I am a confident, highly sociable person. I enjoy being an easy to get along with and likable person and that is usually pretty apparent with all but a very few personalities.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The Untethered Soul. A little out there in parts, but an excellent read for anyone thinking about consciousness, meaning, and finding a deeper sense of self.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- A loving, caring, supportive immediate family.
- Great group of friends throughout the world.
- Being healthy.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
For the most part I don't think there is one characteristic that people miss about me right away. I'm a complex person with multiple interests and facets of my personality just like everyone else. There is no way anyone's depth can be conveyed in a first impression and I try hard to treat people as I like to be treated. If others are "not noticing" something about me I want them to I tend to think about what my behavior is projecting.
Friends Describe me as
Affectionate, Funny, Hard Working, Intelligent
A little more about me
Overall I am happy person, that is the most important thing. More than anything, I want to find someone else who is generally happy and is looking for a relationship to make them MORE happy, not to create happiness from ground zero. I am extremely social and love to laugh - starting with myself, then others, then back to myself. I have a very sarcastic sense of humor but usually have a good feel when to curb it. I'm comfortable with who I am as a person but always want to continue growing. Friends and family enjoy being around me because I am fun and try very hard to treat others as I like to be treated. Caring makes up for my flaws.
