Hello, my name is Jeff. I'm a confident, funny (looking?), smart guy who's got his shit together. Which now puts the pressure on...I should demonstrate these wonderful sounding character points! Anyone can talk and say stuff in their profile (some people have a way with words, others...umm, not have good way).
I have a great job that motivates and challenges me daily. I like the people I work with and it allows me to think and solve and get things done.
I love to travel - I've seen 38 countries and have every intention of seeing more. It's the adventure really, of seeing things with fresh eyes and being curious about your surroundings - you don't need to leave the country to do that.
I love new ideas. I seek patterns and logical explanations for thing that interest me. I generally ignore existing rules and opinions and define my own approach. I am relatively non-materialistic and have a good appreciation for meditation and (although being quite atheist) Buddhist principles of how to lead a good life, but do have a few material things that I love.
I exercise about 3 or 4 times per week. Good health and physical fitness is the core of my life - I like looking good and I couldn't travel to great places, stand the stress of my job or feel good without it.
I really enjoy one on one time and intimate discussions. I'm also good with more sociable gatherings, like parties and bar gatherings. That being said, I can be introverted and cerebral at times (it helps restore my energy) - I read a ton and I like quiet mornings with a cup of coffee.
I love photography for its aesthetic and its ability to capture a moment. I also play the drums, and find the rhythms of percussion apply in writing, personal interactions and lots of other places in life. I love live music.
So who am I looking for? This is a tricky question, because I think we over-analyze things (ok, *I* over-analyze things). Ultimately what I'm looking for is shared values and great chemistry. Here's what I think that means:
- Someone who is intelligent, speaks their mind, adventuresome and has trouble containing their curiosity.
- Someone who is open, enthusiastic, enjoys life and likes to be touched. I like to take the lead on things, but I have no problems surrendering that if you've got better ideas.
Some things I don't think matter:
- Age, ethnicity or profession. These might be indicators, but they're not substitutes for good chemistry.
So, want to chat?
