Hi, I'm Brian
After years of trying, I have managed to relocate to CO from North Carolina. I only arrived the first Friday of June. I am looking forward to meeting new people and visiting new places.
I love animals, like Red and Scarlet (my horses), Bella, Leia and Jimmy (my dogs). I enjoy being outside, hiking - camping - fishing etc. I'm a pretty good cook, largely as a result of a lack of money through my time in college. I spend most of my time riding my horse, fishing, hunting, hiking, shooting pool, reading, drinking beer an watching movies. Well, that's a lie. Really I spend more time at work and asleep than anything else. I am an engineer, which to some extent makes me a bit goofy. We're not exactly considered to be the most "with it" group of people.
I would like to meet someone that enjoys nature, but is also comfortable in a more formal setting. I would prefer someone who has or is working towards a career because it tends to result in a higher level of maturity and self reliance. While I'd be lying if I said appearance was irrelevant, personality is much more important in the long run. Twenty years from now I won't care as much about your looks in comparison to the bond of shared experience and trust.
Favorite line from a book: "I have travelled and I have turned the world over in my hand like a stone with attractive veining, and this I have discovered: a man is happiest when there is a balance between his needs and his possesions. Now the question is how to achieve this balance. One could seek to do this by increasing his goods to the level of his appetites, but that would be stupid. It would involve doing unnatural things, bargaining, haggling, scrimping, working. Ergo? Ergo, the wise man achieves the balance by reducing the level of his needs to the level of his possessions. And this is best done by learning to value the free things of life: the mountains, laughter, poetry, wine offered by a friend..."
