I am self-confident and I don't take myself too seriously. I am pretty easy to get along with - I can go with the flow. I am a good listener and confidant. I am very positive, generous and cheery. I can be too chatty. If you get to know me very well, you will discover that I have a bizarre sense of humour! :) I have heard others describe me as sweet, fun, a high achiever, private but caring. Others call me too opinionated and uninhibited - there's merit in that, tooMy life philosophy is "love God, love people"I love watching sports, particularly in person - I am a longsuffering Vancouver Canucks fan. I'm not a couch potato, though (no time for that!) and I enjoy swimming and working out. Music has always been a huge part of my life - I grew up in a very musical family, and I've been singing as long as I can remember (unfortunately, I can't play an instrument, other than "Chopsticks" or "Heart and Soul" on the piano, and even those I don't play very well) . Jazz, funk, rock and blues are my favourites, but I also like some pop, Gospel and classical. I also volunteer in a fundraising capacity with the Surrey Food Bank, an extremely effective charity helping a lot of needy people in my community. Finally, I do love hanging out with my family - they are a very cool bunchIt is very important to me to be friends first, and then stay open to possibilities and God's leading (to me, this also means being able to see someone regularly, so I would really prefer connecting with someone local :) The biggest attraction to me is a confident man who has a deep, real relationship with Jesus Christ and who is committed to personal growth. It's awesome when people are comfortable with the virtues, personality and gifts that God has given them - as Paul says in the Message, "let's just go ahead and be what we were made to be" Jesus Christ is my best Friend, and it would be unrealistic for me to be with someone who does not feel the same way about God (ideally, we should both be #2 in each other's lives). Beyond that, the character traits I most admire are kindness, honesty, and enjoyment of people I invite you to write, and I do wish you all the best in your personal relationships!
