Basically, I think I'm in this for the same reason as everyone else I'd love to meet the special someone. Really I'm just looking to meet someone to go out have a good time with, and enjoy each other's company and if that someone special comes along, that's great.
Getting a little tired of bars. Well, not bars per se, but in the random singles sense of the word. Not to sound like I'm tired of going out - not at all - but for having a truly meaningful first meeting with someone... it gets kind of old kind of a charade. And while I love going out, I could just as easily stay at home and watch a movie.
About me Grew up in Athens (GA). Went to UGA. Love playing and watching sports - which obviously includes Georgia Football in the fall. Love going out to eat good food. Love to travel (as does the entire online dating population, according to all the profiles out there. Come on people, there has to be someone that hates flying, hates airports, or gets car sick. Go ahead and admit it). But I ACTUALLY enjoy traveling, both the planned trip and the random. Love being outside and doing all kinds of outdoor activities, whether it be playing basketball, hiking, skiing, flyfishing, or day-drinking!
I freaking love my job! I'm a high school basketball coach and teach special ed. I'm extremely passionate about coaching basketball, take the profession very seriously, and am very career driven. In addition to the responsibilities with my high school basketball team, I'm also very fortunate to be able to work for a great basketball training and consulting company that also pays me to do what I love. I get to do what I love for a living. Not many people can say that. I understand how fortunate I am.
I also need to mention my family and friends. I've got - I think - the best of both in the world. I have a great group of friends who are great people who would do anything for me, and I for them... and are a blast to be around (even if most of them spend more time these days pushing strollers through Brookhaven with their wives...Luckily, their wives are awesome too.) And my family...awesome. My parents and brother are awesome. They're incredibly supportive and I really do enjoy spending time with them. Family dinners are always fun and entertaining (and tasty...my mom is a hell of a cook). My parents have been married for 35 years and are still going strong. There's no question that they're the model for me of what a great life together looks like.
As for my match - Physical attraction is undoubtedly important, but it really doesn't mean too much if there's no common ground, mentally. Ideally, I'd want someone who has at least some interest in sports, has a good head on their shoulders, has a sense of curiosity about the world, loves to travel and do new things, and enjoys great conversation (whether it be serious...or not so much) Essentially, I'd like to be with someone that "gets it"
