I am a dynamic person with a sense of humor about life, but I've been through some stuff, so...life is hard, but we can't live in cynicism.
I think it might be more useful for me to describe what I picture a relationship with me might be like. I would like to travel more frequently with someone, twice a year week long trips would be a good start. If we can manage time away from work for longer trips then let's do it. I came up with a trip that starts with an Inca trail hike to Manchu Picchu, then explores Patagonia for a week or two, then to Mendoza to drink some wine, then going to Buenos Aires before flying home. That isn't a promise but that is kind of the trips I'm talking about. Going camping every summer, like twice a summer. I get that city girls don't like camping, but going places where we have to treat our water appeals to me. Throwing it out there. Going to the Lyric, Steppenwolf, or Goodman a few times a season, like 1 opera, 2 plays, I dunno some thing like that. Knowing the guy at the wine store on a first name basis. Doing charity events regularly, like once a month.
I try things, three summers ago it was sailing, two summers ago it was hanging out at the hospital, this summer is nothing to write home about, but two winters ago it was tango lessons. This fall is woodworking classes and a class at Lill St. or Hyde Park Art Center.
Something else about me, I have no interest in college football, if this is a central focus of your life, that's cool. But yeah, I give no fucks about your team winning or losing.
