I'm one of those guys with an uncanny zest for life, thrown together with an original sense of humor that's guaranteed to keep you on your toes. . . As much as I love having a good time, I'm also the dependable one people rely on and trust. On the flip side, I'm one of the best listeners out there and am very close with my big family. I'm comfortable in most any situation, and have no problem meeting people, but at the same time I thought I'd check this out, keep all my options open - and I'm guessin if you're reading this. . . then you are too. . . I'm looking for someone who is down-to-earth and honest, but with enough light in their eyes to wake up every day with a smile. . . eyes open to the world around her, always looking for something new and exciting to make life that much more interesting, while still being happy with what the past has already brought her way an ongoing breath of fresh air. She'd be outgoing, and sociable (think cute with an attitude) , but also comfortable when the moments are softer and quieter. Someone who would start a food fight in the kitchen while we were cooking. If anything ever led to a fight, would be honest and stubborn, but would eventually let it go because it was something so petty and small. Someone with whom I could enjoy long conversations over a glass of wine and get lost in her eyes for hours. Someone who loves to learn and teach. Someone to yank me out of my chair when I'm down, and be willing to get up when the situation was reversed. I'm looking for a balance. . someone to make me feel equal, greater than, and less than all at once.
