I love to laugh and make others laugh and think it is one of the most important parts in a relationship. I'm spontaneous and can be talked into almost anything with a little coaxing and a partner in crime. I was raised to believe that people are generally good and deserve respect. Family is the most important thing to me and I really love the time I am able to spend with both of my brothers and my parents. I admire the way my dad looks at my mom even after 40 years of marriage. I miss midwest values but not the weather. I am a foodie, love running, biking, traveling and experiencing new cultures without the 5-star resort (although I can be talked into that as well), cooking, staying active and being outside as much as possible. I am a triathlete and just finished my first Half Ironman and training for my second now. Being healthy and staying active is very important to me but I do also love eating a burger and drinking beers at a dive bar. I'm hoping to find someone fun and easy with chemistry that I haven't found yet where I can look back in 40 years and still be just as happy as I was on day 1.
