I’m a naturally curious person and my lists of interests seems ever-expanding. As life goes forward, I’ve been trying to fill it with new and interesting things. Lately I’ve been kayaking and biking quite a bit and I signed up for a 700 mile weekend road rally for charity this fall. I also enjoy traveling, and want to visit a lot more places off the beaten path. When asked where I’d like to go next its easiest to say that there probably isn’t a place or country I ‘wouldn’t’ like to see. Not to mention the fact that I get an unhealthy sense of accomplishment when I navigate public transit systems in other countries without difficulty (particularly when they are not in English, lol).
I work in the medical field and am fortunate enough to have struck a really great work/life balance. My job is satisfying and my life equally so.
I quite appreciate proper grammar and enjoy sitting around with a nice gin and tonic or scotch. I put those two things in the same sentence because they both make me seem about ninety years old =) I’m also big in to basic manners (a lost art, these days) and have a strong moral compass.
I like people who don’t take life too seriously. There is a time and a place for somber but day to day activity isn’t it. If you can’t stop and laugh at yourself then you are probably missing out on a lot of life. My sense of humor is referential, tangential and mostly inconsequential. For those that appreciate that sort of thing, we will have endless good times together.
I also would like to find someone who appreciates the little things. It may be a tiny bit more work to french press my coffee or build my own bicycle but its totally worth the satisfaction when it’s all done. It’s also glamorous to give someone a fancy gift for their birthday but its getting them something stupid that reminded you of them or sitting in the same room in silence because they’ve had a bad day just to be near them that makes the world go round, at least in my book.
I’m often asked why I am “online dating.” Call me a hopeless romantic, but I’m looking for a soul mate. If the price is that I have to meet a bunch of interesting (and sometimes crazy) people from the internet along the way to get there then I’m willing to pay the price. It’s certainly never dull =)
