I am the guy your parents only wish you had brought home.
I'm the first person you think of when you break down, need a strong back, want a kind shoulder, have a ticket to the symphony or a hockey game, are hungry, spring a leak, need honest advice, want to laugh until you cry, want a camping or road trip partner, need to feel safe, or just need a date to your weird cousin's wedding. I'm the gentleman who remembers the little things, does the right thing even when no one is looking, cares deeply about his friends and family, prepares for adversity but works for stability, and even acts childish at the least opportune times.
I'm usually up for almost anything. I live life more spontaneously than regimented and I'm always looking for the next great adventure. I'm more of a stay active person than a gym nut. I'd rather go for a walk, take a bike ride, head for the hills, go scuba diving, or work on my house. I enjoy taking weekend mini vacations as well as epic trips. Sometimes the journey is just as great as the destination. I like to see new places and make new memories.
I rarely watch TV. I'd rather read a good book and listen to music. I try to spend some time every day working in my garden. A perfect evening would be sitting under the stars next to a campfire with a cup of hot chocolate.
I love kids, especially my nieces and nephews. To them, Uncle Joe is a crazy, big teddy bear. Although I don't have any children of my own I would love the opportunity to have a family someday.(It's not a deal breaker though.)
My perfect match, among other things, would be kind, loving, intelligent, sexy(to me), dependable, romantic, resourceful, respectful, silly, adventurous, honest, responsible, and family oriented. Bright eyes and easy smiles are the first things I look for. She would be healthy and take care of herself but not be a gym addict. She would be just as comfortable wearing jeans and flip flops or a dress and heels. She enjoys being taken to a nice dinner and dancing but also likes to stay home and close the blinds. She can both take it and dish it out when it comes to playful teasing. She should like sports, or at least not hate them. We should have similar values and compliment each other.
