I’m a naturally curious person and my list of interests seems to never stop growing. I like to live an active and healthy life and like to spend my summers hiking, kayaking or being in/around water. I also play tennis and run the occasional 5K or warrior dash to keep fit. Sometimes its nice just to sit on a deck on a nice night with friends and just shoot the breeze, however.
I started traveling last year and its definitely something I look to continue in the future. When asked where I’d like to go next its easiest to say that there probably isn’t a place or country I ‘wouldn’t’ like to see. Not to mention the fact that I get an unhealthy sense of accomplishment when I navigate public transit systems in other countries without difficulty (particularly when they are not in English, lol).
Not that I can touch on all of my interests here but I also love to cook and my kitchen time is mostly limited as it is far less fun to cook for one. I grew up with italian and mexican food but my adult life has led me to add in indian and some more exotic foods with equal regularity. I also love a good book series (though I read FAR less often than I like as reading for pleasure feels so indulgent), serialized television (Doctor Who, Broadchurch, Mad Men, Downton, Top Gear, etc) and nice long drives through Cuyahoga Valley National Park with the top down.
I quite appreciate proper grammar and enjoy sitting around with a nice gin and tonic or scotch. I put those two things in the same sentence because they both make me seem about ninety years old =)
I work in private practice medicine and have struck a good work/life balance. I take care of people in a large variety of settings which keeps me engaged and I get plenty of time to explore everything else life has to offer as well. I’m definitely a Type B living in a Type A world when I’m at work.
I’m often asked why I am “online dating.” Call me a hopeless romantic, but I’m looking for a soul mate. If the price is that I have to meet a bunch of interesting (and sometimes crazy) people from the internet along the way to get there then I’m willing to pay the price. It’s certainly never dull =)
