I love a combo of arts and sports. I think that a variety of interests and activities creates balance in your life--I strive for that everyday. For fun, I enjoy sporting events/shows/theaters,walking around local lakes, zoos etc. I really like all of the festivals in MN because of the culuture and getting outside every chance I get. I am very passionate about my work, family, friends and, yeah, fun! I hope to meet someone that is the same. I would like to find a partner...someone with a good balance of intelligence and humor...who doesn't take themselves too seriously and can appreciate those things that truly make life special.
I'm beeen made aware that my profile gives the impression that I'm just looking for something casual...casual dating I think it's been called. Well, initially I'm looking for someone with whom I enjoy spending time, then let things develop from there...ultimately, yes, I am looking for that one "special" person with whom the friendship will evolve into a mutually satisfying romantic and monogamous relationship...but I need to meet that person first, hence the "dating" part.
If you think you could be that person, and maybe would like to have some fun times as we build that special friendship, then let's talk . . .
What I’m doing with my life
Striving to enjoy every minute..wheter at work or at play...every
second is precious, and I try very hard to not waste a
minute...from something as simple as appreciating every sip of good
coffee to interesting travel experiences to nuturing relationships.
I’m really good at
Listening, showing appreciation, enjoying myself, and a few other
things that it would be best to discuss in person.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile / laugh.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Hard to pick favorites, as I always have a book in progress,
and sometimes two or maybe three...so, just depends on what has my
interest at the moment. Recent favorites include Sarah's Key, Seven
Houses in France, The Stockholm Octavo.
Movies: Recent movies I've seen include Les Miserables, Skyfall,
The Hobbit. I also enjoy some foreign films, especially French, and
am always looking at what's playing at the Edina, Lagoon, and St.
Anthony Main Theaters.
Shows: Live Theater - I've recently seen the Nutcracker and Aida,
and am a frequent visitor to the Guthrie and Jungle theaters.
TV: Don't watch much TV...not really interested in Keeping up with
the Kardashians or people living in Jersey. However, I do enjoy
watching cable series on DVD, as of late, have enjoyed Treme,
Boardwalk Empire, and any BBC production, such as Sherlock Holmes
Music: the list is always changing and expanding. Mainstays of my
CD player lately has been Ben Kyle's new CD, the Civil Wars, Jack
White...all time favorites include Otis Redding, Bob Marley, Robert
Cray, Ben Harper, anything Motown and funky.
Food: If it's spicy, it's good!!!
The six things I could never do without
A good song, a good book, a good movie, seeing live music, enjoying
great food, and romance.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Making sure that I'm appreciative of all the good things in life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Typical? Is there such a thing as a typical Friday night? If
so...well, you need to get out more!
Either enjoying a night at the theater, or live music at one of my
favorite music spots, or enjoying a cocktail and good food with
friends, or having a quiet night at home with a good book or
movie...and, hopefully soon...special company!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You will have to ask me that one yourself!
You should message me if
You want to meet a smart, funny, and cute guy who is a good
listener, can appreciate those things that truly make life
special....and want to have some fun while building a special
friendship / relationship.
