Because I did travel extensively, and knowing that I would eventually make a move out west, I chose to maintain a single status during that time. Now that I’m in the PNW and loving it, and traveling primarily for pleasure rather than for work, I'm quite open to all new possibilities.
I'm interested in meeting someone who shares similar interests, while also willing to support each other's individual pursuits. Although I don’t mind hitting the gym occasionally, I prefer to get my exercise outdoors. There is so much to do and see here from hiking the numerous trails and mountain ledges to kayaking the myriad lakes and soughs. I also hit the slopes last spring for the first time in years and looking forward to the next snowfall. I'm not into hard core running, biking, etc. If you like to run marathons, I probably wouldn’t be running by your side, but I will be there to cheer you on at the end.
I’ve enjoyed great wine tasting in Woodinville, Chelan and Rattlesnake Hills, while closer to home loving the breweries that seem to be in every neighborhood west of the Snoqualmie Pass. Perhaps more than anything, I love to just hop in the car on a nice day and see where it takes me. I’m looking forward to trips to Yellowstone and Banff and continued drives south on PCH.
I love my blue jeans but can just as easily don a suit and tie for swanky night on the town. Wine tasting events, openings, fundraisers – it’s all good! But I'd enjoy it all much more with the right person by my side.
Also love my sports – but not a sports junky glued to ESPN. I look forward to the fall and start of football season as much as anyone. And spring is for playoff hockey. If you’re a hockey fan – big bonus.
I don’t like to narrow my ‘wants’ in a partner. I do believe that having a lot in common is important, but I’ve also found that having some differences can bring new perspectives to a relationship. In the end, I prefer someone who I believe makes me a better person. I would hope that includes someone who is close to family and friends as I am.
