The one thing I am passionate about...
I really enjoy working out - lifting weights, running, cycling, swimming. I run triathlons, marathons, 1/2 marathons. I do long distance bike rides. I like woodworking. I've started drawing and hope to take some painting and more drawing classes. I am trying to get into writing. I love to travel, especially to tropical locations, although I like other travel as well. I like to have nice dinners. I like to go to a movie from time to time. I try to get to church regularly and listen to religious programming regularly. I like animals.
I typically spend my leisure time
When I'm not working or working out, I try to leave time for just relaxing, doing things around the house and yard, shopping, travel. I like to read, usually fiction but not always. I'm trying to develop my drawing and eventually painting skills. I like to spend time with a few close friends, but also like time by myself or with someone special. I don't hunt or fish much anymore, but I still enjoy going to the shooting range from time to time to shoot paper targets or clay targets.
The most influential person in my life has been
I think that at this point I want someone that can be honest and open with me. It is hard to develop any kind of relationship if you are unsure of the other person's intentions, concerns, desires, etceteras.
The first thing people notice about me
Probably that I tend to be somewhat reserved initially but like to joke with people and chat more as we get more comfortable with one another.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I'm reading a dual language book of Spanish short stories. It is formatted such that the left page is in Spanish and the right page is the same portion of the story in English. The stories are really good and it is helping me develop my minimal Spanish language skills.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- As a Christian, I'm thankful for what Christ did for me (and you) and the relationship that I continue to develop with Him.
- I'm thankful for my health. It is a gift from God to wake up healthy, enjoy a good workout, enjoy life.
- I'm thankful for all that God has done to make me who I am now. It's hard to articulate in such a short space, but I believe that everything I've been through, the skills and abilities God gave me, the education that I have, all of these things have made me what I am now. So, I am thankful for all of that; good and bad, mistakes and good choices.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
It's hard to "notice" the things that make a person what they are. I wish people could "see" beyond the physical appearance and image that we portray to what makes up our emotional self for lack of a better term. I wish people could see why I am who I am, why I do certain things or care about certain things.
Friends Describe me as
Hard Working, Intelligent, Kind, Physically Fit
A little more about me
So much to say in such a short space. I'm a nice guy that is looking for a nice woman to form a friendship with at and a long term relationship if it is right. I've been told, and I believe that I'm attractive, fun, caring, successful, basically a good person. I guess the rest I'd rather hold for sharing as we get to know one another.
