Highbrow culture vs. lowbrow seediness. Vintage Champagne vs. the Champagne of beers. Dress up and formal wear vs. comfy weekend around-the-house workout clothes. Chilled out lethargy vs. fiery intensity. Saturday wilderness adventure vs. staying inside and self-improving all Saturday. You'll have to decide if I'm bundle of contradictions or just an enthusiastic, eclectic, pragmatic romantic.
I love old cars, the great outdoors (especially cycling through it), travel, movies, and my friends. I love fiction, but I find myself reading more about science and history these days. I'm a trivia repository (one day my friends will make me go on Jeopardy!). I don't schedule myself to watch much current TV, but I did find 30 Rock preternaturally brilliant.
You shouldn't be afraid to laugh or be irreverent.
I need communication (in all forms), independence and self-motivation in a partner in crime. I also appreciate someone who isn't afraid of black and white movies, fast driving, sarcastic humor, cocktails, and long walks coupled with long talks.
Finally, I'm always trying to mix it up and try new things- I try not to take the same route twice - so you'd better be armed with a sense of adventure.
