Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi, New to this site. Still figuring it out.
Love the Bay Area in part because 4 hrs by car takes you to
somewhere similar to the rest of the country. Have travelled the
world quite a bit for work in the past and took time to enjoy the
travel (Museums, concerts, theatre, the beach- Cassis- etc). Adding
activities back from sports related knee reconstruction. Walk 3-4
miles a day. Picked up rowing in whaleboats for local exercise.
Ready, willing, able to start a family!

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Greetings, Transplanted Midwesterner with those often quoted

caribbean waters without the bugs!

most situations- so if you see the emptiness in the glass at first
glance and worry about how the emptiness could grow- probably not a
I enjoy walking 3-4 miles a day* and live, work in areas where
that's nice and scenic...it would be nice to share this pleasure
hand in hand, side by side.
Ready, willing, and able for a mutually supportive relationship and
to start a family. Hope we find each other!

I took a "chemistry survey" and here is the summary- seems accurate
to me :
You are a DIRECTOR/negotiator
You are an innovator. You are an inventive, thorough, independent
thinker with a deep interest in how the world works. You quickly
grasp patterns and relationships. And when you focus on a
particular work-related or social puzzle, you often come up with
novel theories and ideas about it.
You have a strong need to achieve. You want to make an impact on
the world. And with your aptitude for theoretical thinking, your
investigative rigor, your logic and your determination, you are
likely to win the honors your hard work deserves.
You are a complex person, outwardly assertive, logical and
intellectual, yet likely to see the many sides of an issue, feel
deep sympathy for others and enjoy the spiritual as well as the
You can be friendly, insightful and eager to please. These
attributes, combined with your love of challenges and knowledge,
make you an exciting, and at times, very sensitive companion.

onions are staples :-)

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Air, water ( to consume and to be near ), sleep, love, chocolate,

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
