I want to see pictures of YOU - headless abs, motorcycles, and fish do nothing for me (but pictures of your dog are great - you can tell a lot about a person by their dog). I also want to read your words to find out how you think and communicate. Empty profiles don't interest me, but if yours is empty, I wish you well on your search.
The right person for me enjoys time in nature and live music. He will be healthy physically and emotionally, not smoke, enjoy being active, and want to eat a healthy diet. He enjoys telling me about his day and wants to know about mine as well. He values his time with me, is affectionate, articulate, and acknowledges our need to be alone occasionally.
Trying to be a good parent has been one of the most important things in my life. My son has recently left the nest and now it's my turn to fly as well. I want adventure, creativity, and occasional quiet times in my life.
I grew up in CT, and lived in CO and CA... always drawn to mountains, it seems. I'm thinking about where I might want to go next. It seems there are many more like-minded people either out west or up north, than there are here.
I'm (still) planning a thru-hike on the Appalachian Trail sometime soon and would really like to meet someone who would enjoy 4 months of hiking with me.
A few of my favorite movies in no particular order are Being There, Brazil, Bridesmaids, A Fish Called Wanda, Casablanca, Les Miserables, all of LOTR, all Harry Potters, Cold Mountain, Cloud Atlas, Terminator I and II, Dr. Zhivago, and Out of Africa.
I'm a Whovian (10 is my favorite doctor), also enjoy Breaking Bad, Lost, 24, 30 Rock, Arrested Development, Prison Break, Orange is the New Black, Fringe, Game of Thrones (and the books, too), SoA (no spoilers, please)... but only on Netflix - I can't stand watching actual tv.
Music is more important to me than any other entertainment, especially live music. I think musical compatibility is the best way to tell if we might click. The soundtrack to my life lately includes Ray LaMontagne, Avett Brothers, Mumford & Sons, , Patty Griffin, Bon Iver, Wilco, Nick Drake, Iron & Wine, Gomez, Alison Krauss, Grace Potter, Greensky Bluegrass and always Van Morrison... mostly Indie singer/songwriters and I'm always on the lookout for hearing them live. I also enjoy Baroque, Reggae, Blues, Jam, and EDM.
