I can be a bit of a romantic, sappy even... ok, a lot of a romantic. My ideal dates are things like snuggling up on a rainy day and watching a good show together (maybe Doctor Who or Arrested Development), or maybe going to a karate class together, or the prototypical dinner and a movie/show.
Last spring (2010) I came out of a long-term relationship, 7+ years, so while I'd like to find someone for long term love and companionship, I'm not in too much of a rush at the moment for those who want to take it slow. Edit: Feeling comfortable with moving on now, had time to get to know myself on my own again.
I grew up in Hawaii (thus the profile name), but escaped back to the east coast. It's a beautiful place to visit, and to grow up in, don't get me wrong, but there were those fond memories of snow - I'd just forgotten how cold it was. BRRRR!!!
Seriously though, the cuisine there was... less than good. Hawaii is the Spam consumption capital of the world, and while working at a book store there, I had the privilege of selling a book entitled, I kid you not, "Yet Another 101 Recipes for Spam."
Dissect that title with me.
Not "101 Recipes", or "Another 101 Recipes", but "Yet Another 101 Recipes".
I keep moderately kosher, so now being relatively near Brookline is a treat, and I love going in and seeing if they have some kosher buffalo on hand.
There's also some of the other cultural/social stuff as well, but suffice to say I like the pace and people out here better. I do occasionally miss the ocean not instantly freezing me when I go in, but that's a sacrifice that's well worth it. On a side note, I like being able to go out in the sun here and not instantly burning in 15 minutes or less.
I'm notoriously bad with computers/email and such, so please don't take it personally if I don't get back to you right away if you message me. I'll get back to you eventually, probably sooner if you make me laugh/smile/grin when I read your message.
I am caring, nerdy, and passionate
