I like to think that I am a balanced, reasonable and "prepared for anything" type person who can be "all things to all men", not in a compromising way, but in a communicative way so that I can more effectively relate to a variety of people, learn about their interests and hopefully be an encouragement. Borrowing a term I often see on these sites, you could call me a "brainiac", but balanced with a sense of humor, an ability to laugh at myself, athleticism and a sensitive side that is able to shed a tear and enjoys talking about relational things with my female friends - but fewer and fewer these days with most moving into marriage! I also have been blessed with incredible parents who raised me in a Godly home and with Biblical principles that ensured that I would not depart from these ways, leading to a mature (but not perfect) , growing in grace and hopefully wiser and wiser Christian man. I am financially responsible and would pray that my match would share a similar commitment - no golddiggers or spendaholics please. I weekly attend a non-denominational church and sometimes substitute teach for an Adult Mens Sunday School class - it's refreshing to see men open up and discuss their struggles and be challenged to assume godly leadership in the church and in their family! To stay in physical shape I cycle, hit the YMCA and play tennis occasionally - burning these calories allows me to enjoy one of my favorite pasttimes - eating and enjoying all types of cuisine - I love it all and would love to share those experiences with my match. Oh yeah, about my profile name, I work as a supervisor for a Federal water resources agency, thus the term "hydroman". Kinda like "ironman", but for engineers!
