I have been to Europe several times, and am looking for an excuse to use more of my vacation time for traveling, instead of watching it flounder and collect. I have family and friends all around the country (I was a transplant from Pennsylvania, and somehow ended up in Texas for far longer than I expected). My job with a local engineering firm keeps me fairly busy and for the most part has some decent perks.
I'm happy to be spending a night out, or a night in, though prefer conversation and quiet drinks to the noise of a club. And every time I shave I get carded at bars.
Mostly, I just thought I'd give this thing a shot to try to meet more people than my current circles seem to touch.
