I hope to meet someone who's looking for a serious relationship. It's important not to rush it, but ultimately that's what I seek. In a relationship I think creativity, problem solving, and keeping things fresh are keys to happiness. I've been told I think like an engineer in this regard. Self-improvement is very important to me. I value it in myself and I look for it in a partner.
Going out, my favorite excursions tend to be live theater, musicals, movies, art and history museums, and aquariums. I love talking about what we’ve just seen or experienced; I thrive on meaningful conversation. I also enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, kayaking, whitewater rafting, snorkeling, tennis, or just walking in the park (ideally with ice cream cones in hand). I’m not a fan of noisy bars; it’s annoying to shout the entire time and I enjoy sharing an organic conversation. Food is a big deal in my book—I adore exploring gourmet grocery stores, cooking at home, trying new restaurants, and returning to special favorites.
I treasure my close relationships with friends, family, and that special someone...and then I need time to quietly recharge at the end of the day, usually with a book or Reddit, a mug of herbal tea, and my two cats. Then I’m ready for my next adventure!
