Eves- there are vaguely intellectual pursuits like bridge night and seeing live performances. I also enjoy the occasional poor attempt to Salsa or Swing, trivia night, and of course the classic dinner and a movie.
In my spare time, I'm a scientist with the requisite curiosity/creativity that being a good one entails.
I really like my work for about 30hrs/week…but there are those other 10-20 hrs they tend to require in Si Valley.
While I work in Fremont and moved there so I can bike to work, my friends and local "hot spots" are mostly still on the peninsula and in San Jose so I commute to fun.
I hope that you have something you really enjoy.
I hope we can find some shared interests.
Of course, matching my image of pretty/fit/sexy is also a feature.
Otherwise, a curious and creative intelligence, an open mind,
and at least a touch of “go for it” would be good.
Some independence and maintenance of separate interests also keeps you exciting.
I design the microscopic structure of the disk that goes inside your computer hard drive. It doesn't jump out as a big conversation starter, but there are intellectually interesting facets to the research.

You are not in a hurry to settle for good enough.
You are approaching ready for long term, family, etc in the next few years if you find the right one.
You are looking for a man with similar traits.
