The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about people. About who they are and what makes them tick. I'm also passionate about movies and music. I'm actually passionate about most things that interest me. If I enjoy something, I want to enjoy it to the fullest and become the best I can be at it.
I typically spend my leisure time
I enjoy playing racquetball, tennis, golf, and basketball. I also love movies (especially arthouse, indie, and foreign, though I love plenty of great Hollywood blockbusters, too), and music (mostly alternative and indie stuff). I enjoy travelling and eating out at nice restaurants or hole-in-the-wall places with great food. I enjoy philosophy and discussion about world events and happenings. Honestly, I enjoy doing almost anything as long as I'm doing it with people whose company I enjoy.
The most influential person in my life has been
I think probably open-mindedness about the world. I'm looking for someone to grow and learn with. Someone that loves to experience new things in new ways with someone they love. I'd also love to find someone who enjoys watching and discussing a great indie film from time to time.
The first thing people notice about me
My warmth, my sense of humor, and my genuine love of people. I love people, all kinds of people. I love parties and intimate gatherings. I love talking to people about a variety of things, big and small, trivial and deep. We're all so different, but yet so similar--and that intrigues me. Keeps me going. Why do we do what we do? Behave the way we behave? Love what we love? Hate what we hate? Why are some people selfish and some so giving? Why are some so kind and some so mean? Why are some so free with praise and love and others so stingy? Those questions fascinate me, which is why I love life so much.
The last book I read and enjoyed
"Ishmael" by Daniel Quinn. The book was not all that well written, but the concepts that Quinn touches on really made me reconsider some things about the way we live as human beings.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My parents
- My children
- My friends

A little more about me
I'm looking for a relationship that matters, not just one of convenience -- a relationship of equals in spirit, but differences in ability and interests. I want to come home and kiss the woman I love and ask her how her day went as I massage her shoulders and kiss her on the neck. I want to love and learn together. Play and laugh together. Appreciate art and mystery together. And I want to make the world we live in a better place -- even if it's only in a very small way. Most importantly, though, I want to do it together, with someone that I love.
