Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I loaded my car and I left Indiana where I grew up hours after
finishing university and have had some great discoveries of life
and culture outside of my small (but wonderful) environment in
which I was raised. The more I discover about the world and the
more I listen to different peoples perspectives, the more I see
what I don’t know and it motivates me to try and keep an open mind
and keep learning.
I love my job and my family and would like to find someone to share
laughter and good times with.
My politics tend to lean toward the left more and more the longer I
live, though I understand that is quite backwards. One of my goals
is to someday own an apartment in the South West region of France
within a couple hours of the border of Spain. I moved back to the
SF from France after living for 4 years in Marseille and Bordeaux.
I've lived most of my adult life in California. I am looking for
someone both fun and serious who also likes the basic things I like
such as travel, good food and experiencing some new things. I also
look for someone with integrity and a strong character and
intelligence is a big turn on for me. I am not interested in
someone who is extreme in their religious beliefs or has far right
political leanings. I am also not looking for anyone who is into
nightclubbing and crazy late night partying, not that there is
anything wrong with it, just those days are past for me…although I
still like to get out to a restaurant bar or pub a couple of times

good pubs/restaurants while on the road, giving blood, listening
(but not remembering), travel planning, being a friend, finding
places to jog anywhere I go, and inventing games
