The one thing I am passionate about...
Living in the belief that life isn't the number of breaths you take, but the moments that take your breath away, and in between taking time to find pleasure in the little things. I'm passionate about trying anything new or visiting new places whenever I have the chance, to laugh whenever possible, to keep myself fit and strong, and finding that someone who truly believes those things with me, not just by saying it but by his actions everyday.
I typically spend my leisure time
In nature when possible. I do a lot of activities for exercise, and take it outside when I can, leaving my ipod behind. I've dwelved into primal fitness. I like rock-climbing, hiking, and snowboarding. Not great at snowboarding yet,but I don't knock down other people anymore so there's improvement. I love any kind of dance, and take classes whenever I can. And I like to muay thai box and try a little krav maga. I love participating in adventure races, (mud runs, obstacle courses).
The most influential person in my life has been
I'd have to say a sense of humor. A man who is good-natured,, who can laugh at himself and enjoy dazzling me with his fun loving wit, is a sexy man. Life is too short to spend it being grumpy. I need someone who shares my views about staying fit. Someone that will share adventure/romance with me and also enjoy the little moments.I'm looking for that awesome relationship where we're in tune with each other, supportive and trusting, laughing and having fun with each other, but ok when we're apart cause we're strong in who we are and with each other. A couple that sees the bigger picture, and doesn't get bogged down with the drama.
The first thing people notice about me
I have no idea how to answer that, appearance is what people notice first, so I'll use "guy lingo". In the world of cars, you'd notice fairly soon I am not a minivan, a little boring and predictable. I'm more like a Mitsubishi Evolution......comes standard with necessary practicalities, but subtley cool and sporty.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- my boys, 17 and 22
- the ability to laugh at myself
- and amazingly, I believe I'm developing a romantic side, so it shows me we are always evolving and have the ability to be......more
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I sorta feel like saying, I don't think there's anything.....is that wrong? I tend to show some good stuff pretty early, I like genuine,open people. And I like to be around people that take the time to get closer to me to find out the rest. It's like.......when I was a kid, I thought the deep purple irises at the edge of our property were pretty. But when I got close enough to smell one, and see the yellow inside, and feel how soft it was on my skin, I thought they were the most beautiful things I'd ever seen. Plus, I like being complex, and surprising people.
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
I'm very yin yang. I am ex military, can tend to be fiery/passionate, and competitive in a good natured way. On vacation, I can only lay around on a beach for a day, before I'm itching to do something exciting. But because my job is stressful and life is just hard sometimes, I try to relax whenever possible in nature, practice yoga, dance, and just be a more peaceful soul. I can be kind and compassionate to people who warrant it, but have no patience for intolerant, mean, snobbish people. I do, finally believe I think, there's someone out there who matches me, and I also think he wouldn't be bored.
