I miss what the west coast has to offer (easy riding motorcycles), but I'm happiest right here where I grew up. I see as much as I can in the performing arts and take trips out of the city for my mini-vacations up to Hudson and Beacon as often as possible.
I love a good Pinot that makes me squint with pleasure, a warm hand on the back of my neck and endless hours of talking and trading stories.
I travel frequently, visiting the best (tokyo, paris, south korea) and not as sexy (milwaukee and pittsburgh). But I love it all. I have traveled solo plenty of times (camping in Grindelwald anyone?), but what I value most is a co-pilot (or pilot!) on these journeys...sharing moments of discovery, warmth and possibility.
I am looking to be surprised and challenged, meeting someone I might not normally meet in my circles. I have a great life, full of ambitions, living a full lifestyle looking for someone who would enjoy it with me in a long term relationship. Someone who thinks they can challenge me and add to an already awesome life. I am attracted to strong minded and independent women who are clear on who they are, but are soft enough to receive the care and generosity of a good man.
I like a someone who can let themselves be a little goofy, a little devil on occasion...with a mad sense of humor, super smart (not necessarily bookish though) and doesn't mind getting their hands a little dirty.
Please read all of my profile. If you don't feel we're a match, please do not contact me. I am very selective (as I'm sure you are, too) and it will save us both some time.
And for all you 20 and early 30 somethings that have reached out, I am flattered....but, I am really looking for someone a bit more seasoned.
I am not interested in endless e-mailing and much prefer a nice phone conversation or a drink after a couple of exchanges if it feels appropriate.
