hiking, and less like shopping for a new pair of shoes.
“Don’t be a jerk” seems to me to be a pretty good guideline by

To say that coffee is absolutely essential to human existence
vastly undersells its importance.
Most of us work in order to provide a source of income for our
existence. Some of us are lucky enough to love what they do and who
they work with, and feel like they get to make a difference in the
world. I am one of those people.
There is no such thing as “online dating.” Dating is done in real
time, face-to-face, no electrons involved. The online part of it is
simply a more efficient means of meeting like-minded people than
hanging out in bars, chance encounters, or hoping your friends will
introduce you to the love of your life.
I embrace the random chaos of the world, rather than ascribe it to
some grand plan overseen by a supreme being.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Doing my best to be a good person. Working hard, relaxing,
exercising, traveling, spending time with friends and family, doing
things that interest and amuse me, trying not to overthink this
I have a solid, balanced, and positive outlook on life, and I feel
my best years are still ahead of me. I've been fortunate to build a
great life for myself. And while I am perfectly happy with my
single status, I can't help but wonder how much better life could
be if it was shared with another special person. So far, she's
proven to be elusive, but maybe she's you?

Movies -- Indies, drama, foreign, film noir, documentaries
Books -- I have eclectic tastes, lot of histories, biographies, but
always on the lookout for a good novel
Food -- I'll eat anything. I love a great meal
TV -- don't watch it all that much, but Breaking Bad, Better Call
Saul, Mad Men, Big Bang Theory are all recent faves (I prefer shows
with alliterative or rhyming titles, apparently)
I’m interested in anything artistic, performing, static or
otherwise. Museums, galleries, architecture, live theater,
symphonies, ballet, opera -- bring it on. I like sports too,
particularly the Blazers and baseball (go Yankees), and sports car
racing. But I'm not a "watch TV all day" kind of sports fan.
