I recently spent two years in China and I am very happy to be back in Seattle! I loved living in China and getting to see Asia first hand. It is a treasured memory.
I was divorced about eight years ago and now I am truly ready to find a new relationship. I am hoping to find a special person that I can spend the rest of my life with. I enjoy the comfort of being with one person that you know and love and can share your life with all the way from sharing a great episode of This American Life to celebrating major life milestones.
I love a good restaurant. Seattle has so many great restaurants. I want to eat at every one but I tend to go back to my favorites again and again. I have many favorites so that is ok.
I also love film. Most years I go to the Cinequest Film Festival in San Jose and it is one of my favorite things. I tend to go for independent films. Lately I have been watching more series. On my current list is Justified, Breaking Bad and Bob's Burgers. I'm a big fan of most things that Joss Whedon has done as well particularly Firefly and Dr. Horrible.
I am also a bit of a wine buff. It is not unusual to find me in the warehouse district of Woodinville. I tend to buy much more than I can drink so extra points if you can help me reduce the size of my cellar.
On a nice, sunny weekend day you will not find me indoors. I will be out walking, biking or just driving around.
I love to travel. I have had extra pages added to my passport twice. Weekend trips to Portland, Vancouver or the San Francisco Bay Area are great. I also love longer vacations. For my next big vacation I want to go back to Europe. You will need to enjoy travel almost as much as I do. If you love it more that is ok as well. I don't spend much time on beaches although I do love beaches. I get bored quickly lying in a beach chair. I would rather go diving or snorkeling.
I live in Greenlake and I really like it here. City life has been good to me. I've spent time in suburbia as well and that has its value but right now I enjoy the city.
I have a 31 year old son who is my best friend. Unfortunately he stayed back in China and I miss him very much.
I have a job that I love and generally I have more things that I want to do than I have time to do them. You should be the same. You should have things in your life that you are passionate about and you should be making good use of your time. If you are the type who lets time weigh heavy or spends a lot of time on the sofa watching soap operas then you are not for me.
I am looking for someone around my age that lives in or around the Seattle area. I do not have a specific radius in mind. I am not interested in a relationship that is mainly long distance. Otherwise I am pretty open to meeting all types. I am not into long email exchanges. Let's get together and see what happens! If you like my profile let me buy you dinner and we can figure out in 30 minutes what we would never know in email.
