I grew up in the Midwest for example, and share it's values. In my political views, I am not at all close-minded or ultraconservative and feel right at home here in northern California. My personality is laid-back though when it comes to work I take it seriously and am a perfectionist. The people I meet universally find me genuine and nice, and those who know me well know that I am honest too. And while this may all be true (that deep down my core character is Midwestern), I have been cultured, tempered and matured on the East Coast and now (finally!) the West Coast.
In my free time I enjoy good food, fine wine and spirited conversation. The novelty of going to Napa and Sonoma to bike ride, wine taste and eat fantastic French food still hasn't worn off and I go up there as often as possible. In the winters I head out to Tahoe to ski and in the summer I go there to mountain bike. I like racing my sports car on the track but sailing on the bay is my newest hobby. Traveling is also a passion of mine and I try to take a major trip every year. Last year was Istanbul, Israel, Russia and Lithuania. This fall I went to Nepal, Angkor Wat in Cambodia, Bangkok and Singapore. South America will probably be next year's trip.
But enough about me! What about you?! I'm looking for a woman who has similar interests but also her own. I want to meet someone with whom I can explore the world and all that it has to offer. That being said, I also would like to meet someone who appreciated the basic stuff like staying in and making dinner followed by a rental movie. I like women who aren't afraid to express how they feel and to give their honest opinion - even if it's not necessarily something I may want to hear. Honesty is essential, of course, as is loyalty - and a sense of humor. I'm pretty active so it would be nice to meet a woman who also likes to get out there and have fun. If you think you share these traits, send me an email.
