This year will be the most amazing yet?I feel it! I am so very content where I am in my life and appreciate each moment I have in the present. That's pretty crazy for me. I'm usually always looking toward the future and planning for what's ahead, but this year, my moto is "Patience and Priorities" I am learning the meaning behind those words and attempt to apply it to my life right now. As far as this online thing goes for me, let's be honest, I don't need anymore guy friends. I have recently relocated to this beautiful state of Idaho and am making my humble attempt to try my hand at the dating scene, however rusty I may be. Regardless, the ironic side is that I can't possibly see myself seriously dating anyone without a solid friendship already established. Have I become confusing enough for you? Okay, to tell a bit about myself, I am a Long Beach, California import since April of 06 but have plenty of family here to calm the sting of relocating. I have been and always will be a person that is self-employed so those that can't handle risk better move on. My life is all about risk; trying new things and testing the waters so to speak. Although I am not technically in school, life is a continual learning process and I feel like my summer break is so over. I am constantly asked why I am not married. There is one reason. I'm really picky. I'm not one to beat around the bush and mention all of these things that turn me off just to waste some space. The reality is that I am holding out for someone who is bringing something equal to the table. I don't have kids and have never been married, is that so much to ask for nowadays? Not to say that I don't love kids but in my ideal world, there should be an order to these things, finding the complementary piece and building off of that ya know? The things that are the most important would be a spiritual awareness, the need for family and the respect for truth. Why should anyone lie? I guess I have a real problem with liars. One thing I realized when I was wild with enthusiasm for life, you never have to lie if you make solid decisions while in the midst of temptation. Just never put myself in the position where I would feel uncomfortable telling the truth if someone were to ask and I'm golden. The key is having friends who hold you accountable. I have just enough. Ambition and having an inner drive all are very important qualities. There is a place for video games but guys kinda take it too far some times, all day and night. Not okay!I am a very passionate person and what truly moves me is a man who loves God, his family and living his life the best he possibly can, being true to our natural gifts and abilities, doing something great with what we have been given. I have a special relationship with God and find a constant peace and understanding through that. I cry about only two things, and the first is God, don't worry about the second. Sometimes I can be a big baby when I start talking about how God teaches me something new, I love when that happens. I guess I'm kind of old fashioned when I expect the guy to make the first move. I'm pretty shy until I know someone and then you'd never remember that. Just moving from California has shown me that I totally live in a shell and need to get used to meeting new people. Before I would keep my head to the ground and never made eye contact, that was the safe thing. I look forward to this real estate career where I challenge that comfort zone I've become accustomed to and learn to be friendly with people. The people are one of the greatest things I love about this state. They seem very genuine and kind for the most part. This profile is long enough. I'm finished saying my peace and I'm getting tired. I wish all of you the best of luck in your quest of online dating, isn't it an adventure?
