I have returned from Constantinople, the Queen of Cities and capitol of the Roman Empire for more than a thousand years. I bring back with me the perspective of timeless generations and also a wariness of aggressive oriental carpet salesmen.
I should have lived in the Victorian Age when elegance and strength were more complementary. Also, no one would have mistaken me for a hippie.
My ideal match will be confident in her qualities and direction even amidst social pressure. I value my space and the time to pursue my goals, but like to reconnect with the person regularly to keep the relationship healthy. I am athletic and enjoy hiking, running, weight training. It would be nice to do some of these with my S.O., but it's not required. Poetry appreciation is also a plus. She should wake up most days ready to embrace life and rise to the stratosphere. We should enhance the quality of one another's lives.
I am poetic, energetic, and sentimental.
Training for my next half marathon. I'm still not brave enough for the full and would miss my toenails.

Creating an experience during my presentations; I am a performer

It often appears as if I'm frowning, but my mouth turns down naturally unless I smile.
I might seem aloof or cold, but it's only I prefer getting to know people gradually.
