Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love spending time with smart, witty people. I value a sense of
humor, a love of adventure, and loyalty. I am myself loyal, funny,
and smart, and I appreciate a good adventure--especially if it
makes a hilarious story later.
I love good food, wine and conversation. I have an adorable
terrier, and we like hiking in beautiful places. I swim, bike, run
(started recently), do yoga, and sail.
I'm looking for someone with whom to explore neighbourhoods and
restaurants, to hike or bike, to talk about current or past events,
or just to relax. I'm trying to learn how to cook; I have totally
mastered eating and doing dishes. I don't have kids, but I enjoy
having them in my life. I have a 6 year old godson who teaches me
me a different kind of playfulness. I am thinking about getting
another sailboat soon. I have an interesting life, and I am in a
great position to share it.
If you are a thinking, evolving person, send me a message. I'd love
to meet for a drink or coffee.
I prefer to date someone who lives nearby, but I can always make
exceptions. I don't much like instant messaging, though. I'd much
rather meet for a drink or coffee!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I''m a university professor in the humanities. I travel for
research quite a bit. I like getting to know other cultures and
immersing myself in them. I'm currently writing a book, and I have
been very involved with it, but after a year-long fellowship out of
town, I'm glad to be back in the classroom and the city. I'm still
working hard to finish the manuscript, but I'd like to meet someone
with whom to spend quality time. Though I'm a bit bookish, I'm also
social and fun. I have a good group of friends in Baltimore.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Reading; writing; editing; talking; laughing; identifying good
restaurants from a mere glance; travelling (finding my way around
new places and enjoying the challenge); being a friend.
