Hi there! Thank you for taking the time to see who I am and what I'm all about. The one thing that I have learned from the dates that I have been on so far, is that a persons online profile generally isn't really who that person is. There are hints in the profile to one's true self, myself and my past profiles included, but I've found that they tend to be slightly glorified. There is nothing wrong with that, after all we are trying to sell ourselves, right? Highlighting our accomplishments is how we do it. But we all leave out our failures, fears and weaknesses and it's a combination of our failures, fears, weaknesses and accomplishments that make us who we really are, right now, at this moment.
So here is my shot at an unglorified profile….. Let me know how I do =)
First off, your in luck! You have found a true gentleman. You can thank my older sisters and their friends who raised me for this. Open the door, pull out the chair, buy her flowers, tell her you love her, she always goes first, are just some of the phrases that were pounded into me during my impressionable teen years. Not just to do them, but why I should do them. It's almost like electric shock therapy, if I don't abide by the rules, I feel intense guilt. But if I abide by the rules, I get intense pleasure. I know, weird in way, but it is a plus for you.
I have been spending the last few years of my life on a bit of a spiritual journey. My journey started pretty much like everyone else's. You just hit rock bottom and you finally realize that when you try to run your life your way, it just ends up a huge mess. A friend turned me on to Eckhart Tolle's books (if you haven't heard of him, don't worry, it's nothing weird, just google his name) and I've been traveling down this road ever since. I have dabbled in Buddhism, Hinduism and Christianity, but I always fall back to Tolle's books and the slow death of my ego. They keep me at peace, motivated, happy and moving.
Personality wise I'm a bit of a two sided coin. On the one side, I can be a bit of an introvert who tends to shy away from social situations. However, I can easily be prodded into social situations (key word is prodded) and once involved I tend to fit in nicely and then wonder why I was so hesitant in the first place.
One the other side, when I am in familiar company, I'm very uninhibited and really like to make people laugh, even if at my own expense. Granted, most of the time my friends and co-workers call me a goof ball and occasionally I get the ultimate, "your such a goober". But it is always said in an endearing sort of way.
I am also a kind, sincere, responsible, open minded and fairly intelligent person. Granted, everyone says that, so for the moment you will have to take my word for it. But If you decide to give me the opportunity, you will be pleasantly surprised to see that I am all of the above.. =)
I enjoy hiking, I try to get out at least twice a month for a new adventure. My job keeps me glued to a computer most of the week so this is kind of mandatory for me. I'm also on a fitness kick at the moment, going to the gym three times a week and a yoga class. Although to be honest, I'm also doing it as a way to meet my future life partner in case Match doesn't work out. I can't meet people sitting on the sofa… LOL.
My all time favorite thing to do is to grab a cup of coffee or a Jamba juice and people watch. But, like everyone else, sometimes I just like to stay home, do a little reading or watch a movie.
Lastly, I come with absolutely no baggage. I have a son, who, as he say's, is a grown ass man, yea right… he's just 23. He started a career that looks like it's going to be very successful, so the cord has been cut and I'm just floating around in the universe waiting to see where it takes me, or should I say…. us?
