I spend my time with friends playing board games (Ticket to Ride, Settlers of Cataan, etc.), drinking craft beers or single malt Scotch, and/or watching soccer. My alone time is spent with my dogs, reading (science fiction, historical fiction, social sciences, newspapers, and comic books), listening to music (classical, jazz, or alternative/independent rock), learning to play piano, and/or playing computer games (Civilization for example).
I do like to travel, but haven't had the opportunity to do so much. Mainly I take road trips to Kansas City, Minneapolis , Chicago, and Denver. When I travel I enjoy exploring used book stores, museums, and the local soccer team.
I’m looking for is someone who is a good conversationalist and has at least one interest/activity that we can share.
Books - Lord of the Rings Trilogy, I Claudius, Doctor Zhivago, Freakonomics, The Russian Primary Chronicle, The Baroque Cycle
My computer and your beautiful smile,
. . .
These are some of my favorite things.
I once read something where a woman was wondering where all the men with passports and library cards were. If that's you, I have both (though I'm more likely to buy a book than check one out, and I sadly haven't used my passport in a long time).
You enjoy playing board and/or role-playing games.
If you don't live in the Des Moines area, that's OK, as I'm always looking for an excuse to take a road trip.
