At first sight, I strike people as a reserved "meat and potatoes" type of guy, but I love to try new things and thrive in new situations. In my mind, the perfect day starts with football, baseball or basketball, and ends with the opera, a musical or a movie. I love to work hard and get home at the end of the day dirty and tired, but I clean up nice too. I quote movies a lot (especially around family) and have what may be termed an over-developed sense of humor. :) My family, my friends and my values are what are most important to me. I enjoy camping, hiking, playing/watching sports, reading, movies... the list goes on. Needless to say, it doesn't take much to amuse me.
I'm looking for a girl who knows who she is, but loves to try new things. Somebody who loves to laugh and can have a good time no matter what they are doing. Who can sit through a sporting event and a theatrical performance and be interested in both. Most importantly, somebody who shares the same values, and puts family, friends and values before everything else.
I don't think its important for friends or couples to like all the same things. Its just important that they are willing to take interest in the things the other person loves. Being a little different just means that its a wonderful opportunity to introduce the other person to something new.
