The one thing I am passionate about...
I am very passionate about my health and physical fitness. However, I'm not a hard core athelete. I just like to eat reasonably healthy and exercise regularly. I do a lot of different types of exercise. I enjoy the martial arts and outdoor activities, reading, etc. My personal, romantic relationship can be a place where I put a lot of energy and devotion. It is important to me to be healthy physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. I like calmness, tranquility and kindness in my relationships with people. I like to talk through things in a calm, rational manner and work toward a mutually beneficial outcome.
I typically spend my leisure time
Walking, reading, working out, martial arts, watching television, hanging out at the book store. I like to take trips to hike or to the beach, mountains or just get away for a romantic weekend.
The most influential person in my life has been
I think kindness, sincerity and stability are very important. I've a heard the term "good heart" as a way to describe some people and I think that is very important. I want someone who will be kind to me, lift me up, encourage me. Also, someone who really likes me for me and enjoys spending time together. This may sound like it's about me but NO, it's about US. A strong, stable, healthy, warm friendship and true love is what I'm looking for. Good communication skills are very important.
The first thing people notice about me
I'm not real sure. I am fairly confident and I have somewhat of a "presence."
The last book I read and enjoyed
I've read and am rereading, "Getting to Commitment." This book makes more sense about relationships and the challenges people face in finding commitment than any I've read. I, like the author, have had my share of struggles in my search for that special someone. There are a lot of pitfalls and behaviors that people do or have done to them that sabatoge the path to a long term relationship. The author finally found true love and I have faith that I can too!
The three things which I am most thankful for
- That my children are young adults and seem to be doing well.
- My health is good.
- I have a good job that I enjoy most of the time.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I am a very caring, trustworthy person. Also, I'm calm and kind hearted. I believe my motives are right concerning other people but I'm not sure they know or even care about that.
Friends Describe me as
Affectionate, Caring, Physically Fit, Rational
A little more about me
I am sincerely looking for that special someone. Someone who shares some of my interest, who likes spending time with me. I want to love and be loved. I'm looking for a strong commitment to a healthy and long term - life long relationship. I want to find that special someone, a friend, a lover, a confidant, a partner, a team of two!
