Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an American currently living in Geneva Switzerland. I have been
an ex-pat for nearly four years now and love living outside the US.
Here in Geneva I've been active in rock climbing, cycling, and my
new passion - mountaineering.
I have a regular weekday job, but try to workout at home in the
mornings or evening and spend my weekends in the mountain or doing
anything else that sounds interesting.
I would be nice, though not necessary, to find a partner who is
also wanting to climb or is into road cycling - it doesn't matter
where you live - as I live so close to the Alps.
Having common interests, especially recreational, is always a great
foundation to build a partnership. Of course, there is also a need
to have that certain spark of physical attraction too. I need a
partner who is adventurous, curious and constantly needing to try
new things, both in and out of the bedroom.
I also enjoy travel to exotic places (and hopefully to climb
mountains in far-away places like Nepal), and many of the other
finer things in life, art, music, wine, food, and lively debate.
I've visited 48 of the 50 US states plus 50+ countries. Airport
lounges and airplanes are sometimes my second home.
By the way, my US home is in Austin, Texas, I visit there usually
twice a year. I have lived in Houston, Southern California,
Manhattan, Chicago, Riyadh, Manama and now Geneva.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm living abroad, letting the other mice run ever faster on the
treadmill of life, enjoying outdoor activities, exploring my
limits, and seeking a like-minded partner.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Solving complex problems, making great tasting meals from leftovers
and random things in the kitchen, planning exotic trips, and
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Is that I typically don't care about what people notice. I live my
own life in my own way and don't seek the attention or approval of
others. My friends and family back in the US think that it's quite
abnormal that I don't own a car, a TV, or a microwave and that I
can quite easily move my limited amount of stuff via checked

Books - all sorts of non-fiction, Movies - ones that make you
think, Music - anything non-commercial, Food - everything ethnic.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Passport, climbing equipment, my two bikes, my great job, sex, and
Mexican food (though sadly unavailable in acceptable quality in
Switzerland). Oh, and I've been told, Oxford Commas.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why women squeeze the toothpaste from the top.
An acceptable punishment for people who don't know the difference
between you're and your and there's and there are.
What country should I visit next?

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

You'd like to have some intelligent conversation, lots of ethnic
foods, random exposure to culture (museums, concerts, opera, etc.),
and if you are passionate and honest about your cravings.
