I love music, the outdoors, science, thought, words, continuous learning and following my curiosity. I don't define myself by my work (engineering), but I do define myself somewhat by what I studied (physics). I was THIS close (see my thumb and finger held close?) to being a pianist. The arts, especially music in almost every form, are important to me.
I enjoy the surprises a new experience or a new person throw at me; A lot of my friends grew up outside the US. I don't have a "type".
But I do think she's smart and able to communicate beautifully, precisely and humorously. She's rational, but also artful. She's sexy but not artificial. (I don't like makeup). She understands the sensuality of being alluring without forgetting that I love her in sweats, too. She's as comfortable in a four-star restaurant as she is in a kayak. She has a strong sense of what's right but doesn't need a god or religion to rationalize it. She's warm and open. She has real friends, loves her family, and wants to build an openly affectionate, supportive, funny and stimulating life with me, too. She wants to engage the outside world, not retreat to home and TV. She's curious about learning, new experiences, the outdoors and culture; she's engaged with that rich world.
