Recently I spent time exploring Oregon and Seattle-- hiking, kayaking, and checking out the scene in general. I loved the laid back approach to life and found the area to be a welcome break from the Washington scene. Rockville (along the Potomac border) is home for now, and is a good place for my kids but certainly not home forever. I go into the city as often possible or get out into the woods for hiking, or biking, or just checking out others parts of the area.
All in all, I am interested in meeting someone who can take in a museum but also can hang at a local dive and have a drink. A sense of humor, intellect, and honesty are all important. I'm in no rush and have done the marriage thing, have the kids, am not looking for a proxy father for them, and have built a home that I really enjoy. Chemistry is a pretty obvious part of it all.
