I am a quintessential dichotomy, having many contrasting and some radically opposite points of views and life experiences. I am from Louisiana, a state that is very good at defining you. My father is Cajun and my mother is Southern... I got the best of both food worlds, and I know how to cook. I generally don't like competitive sports, and don't watch games. Being that I don't have cable TV or even own a TV, the only time I *do* watch sports is with friends at bars or their place. I love people who see life as one great big learning experience, both from its challenges and from its opportunities. I love even more, those who view life with infinitesimally more opportunities than challenges. I hate Twilight, but love Pride and Prejudice, after having read both. Character development, ladies... Meyer v Austen isn't even a fair contest. I love Irish music and French food. I have Irish and French blood, so why not go with the best from both, eh? I love the smell of green peppers, especially when making a gumbo. Fake or shallow people bore me to tears. I love to observe people and cultures. I learn a lot from observing the ordinary. I love to know extraordinary people. I like humor that is un-p.c. I appreciate and usually laugh at *any* attempt at humor by others. It may not be the actual attempt-at-humor that I'm laughing at. I love Kermit. His performance of "Being Green" is a fave. I am *way* over-educated, to the point I know everything. The one thing I *really* know, is that I know nothing. I am really "into" music, both listening and performing. I am really not "into" country music, although I can appreciate it, and actually love bluegrass/folk. I love dogs but only just barely like cats as I'm a bit allergic. I have a cat but not a dog. I love someone with a sense of humor as mine. I love exploring nearby places. I wish I had more time and money to explore far-away places. I like fresh flowers in my home, but would never admit that to other guys. Please help me keep that secret. I love standing around and talking outside. I love taking car trips. I like the city and the country but would always want to live close to a city. I dislike doing laundry, especially ironing. I don't sing in the shower but sing in the car. I am bad luck when it comes to grocery lines, so if you see me in one, pick another line. I love looking at old photographs of cities I know well. I love buildings that invite me in by their design. I like drawing. I am not very good at drawing, except I can do a mean poinsettia. I love my SCUBA gear, my trombone, my mountain bike, my road bicycle, my telescopes, my Irish flute, and my kayaks, if one can actually "love" inanimate objects. I love live theatre, live music and live comedy. I love lively people. I think there is balance when it comes to squeezing toothpaste with using the middle end. I like staying up late and sleeping in. I almost always go to bed early and hardly ever sleep in. I love people that have figured out their purpose in life. I especially like those who live a purposeful life. My favorite outdoor activities include mountain biking, cycling, golf, scuba diving, kayaking and snowshoeing. I love music and outdoor concerts/events, including Jazz, Classical, Celtic and Bluegrass music. I love to go to theater, opera and am an avid museum-goer.

Let me try to tell you a little about myself. It's so hard to get a feeling for what a person is really like through reading a couple of paragraphs, but here goes... I'm very outgoing, and not afraid to be a little bit of a goof to make people laugh. I've always thought a good sense of humor is essential in life. How else are you supposed to get through, if you can't laugh at yourself? ... I like to keep active and go to the gym after work. I think it’s important to keep in shape and stay healthy. Now, I’m not always the best, and I have been known to slip out of my routine here and there…but I do try to keep on a good pattern. I love going to the beach or the mountain. I like skiing, riding snowmobiles, or just a good old-fashioned snowball fight every once in a while. I am Christian and I have always felt that God was leading my life. I look to him for all of my strength. I love sharing new experiences with someone special, and showing her that she is important to me. I love going out to dinners, movies, comedy clubs, dancing, or just cuddling up to watch a movie at home. I wouldn't mind cooking for her occasionally either…I went to Oregon State University and got my degree in Health Care Administration. After working in the field for a few years, I'm now the administrator for an Assisted Living Facility. I never thought I would end up here, but I actually love it. I always thought I would be working with kids. But it does mean a lot to me to be able to make my residents smile. I LOVE being able to make their day. Especially when they might not have anyone else in their lives that can bring that smile or say hello every morning... I love making a difference in the world, even if it is just in their little circle. I remember hearing this story about a woman walking down the beach where a bunch of starfish had been washed up on the shore. She was picking them up one here, one there, and throwing them back into the ocean. This person walked up to her and asked her why she was doing this. She said that there are so many starfish washed up on the beach, you can’t possibly get them all, it won't make a difference. The old lady just looked at her while holding one in her hand, threw it out into the ocean, and said, "I just made all the difference in the world to that one..." That's kind of how I feel. I might not be able to make a big difference in the world, but I do get to make a mark with the elderly people that I care about. Anyway, I'm sure you've probably heard that story. I might have even messed it up, but that’s just the way I’ve always felt about my work. Although I feel it is important to be successful in a professional capacity, that's not where my focus lies. I enjoy the true jewels of life, which I find in spending time with family and friends, spending time with God, traveling, exploring, experiencing new things, making friends, yadda, yadda, yadda. This is where I find the greatest success. I've always been very social and confident when it comes to meeting new "people." I've always been a very romantic person as well. I like to spoil my girl! I love bringing home a bouquet of flowers or a box of candy every now and then. I love cuddling up around a cozy fire or eating a candlelight dinner. I am the type of person who believes in loving one person and never being dishonest, never cheating, never giving up on that special person even through hard times. Those hard times will come, guaranteed. We always want the good times in our life, but that’s not always the case. I think it's just as important if not more important to see how someone handles the bad times, as to how they handle the good ones. I have always felt that some of the BEST things in life are the littlest things such as family, friends, and the love of someone special by your side for the rest of your life. I work with the elderly, and I see it everyday. Couples who have been together for 50 to 60 years. Couples who love each other and finish each other's sentences. Couples who are going through experiences such as cancer and other sicknesses, yet they stick by each other side through it all. I’ve seen a husband sit next to his wife’s bed day after day for hours on end just so she would not feel lonely. Just so she would know there is someone that will always be there for her until the end. It's amazing to see and it really gives me hope that there is someone out there for each of us. That's what I want to find.
