I’m also rather cerebral and very much a thinker. Tend to spend a lot of time analyzing things before making decisions, and I can sometimes live in my head for extended periods of time.
Some ways I would spend a Saturday…
- 15 miles of singletrack on two wheels.
- Festival in the park under my pop-up with my buds. Preferrably rock n’ roll (see note below re: bluegrass)
- Hiking to Lake Hope, or any trail through aspen groves with views of big mountains.
- Cocktail pool day at the Peaks Hotel!
- People watching on Main street with my dog.
- The Via Ferrata. Ohmygod, one of the coolest things I’ve ever done in Telluride!
I love the Nugget Theatre. It is by no means the most sophisticated or comfortable theatre out there, but where else can you walk in with a pizza and a bunch of beers. Really wish they did matinees.
I don't like mean people. Or arrogant people. I do, however, like the prairie dogs on the valley floor.
I love to laugh and love good comedy. The comedy fest in the winter is one of my favorite weekends of the year (ohmygod, it’s in two weeks… can’t wait!). I laugh so hard and so much that my face hurts. My sense of humor definitely runs along the edge of raunchy, sarcastic, and borderline offensive, but I certainly know when to mind my P’s and Q’s. Comics like Louis C.K., Amy Schumer, Anthony Jeselnik, Aziz Ansari, and the rest of those new breed really tickle my funny bone. My favorite TV shows and movies are down below and that should give you an idea of my sense of humor.
I'm affectionate, and I'm very generous with the hugs and kisses. And I love to get 'em, too. I like to give compliments. Sincere ones. I'll notice when you got your hair done.
I’m a romantic at heart.
I love the desert canyonlands. Can’t wait for spring.
Being outside is awesome, but sometimes I'm a homebody and I enjoy it.
I love my dog. The chihuahua has me wrapped around her little finger. She is the sweetest little pooch in the world. I baby talk to her all the time, and she has like a thousand nicknames, but always knows exactly when I'm talking to her. She comes to work with me every day and hustles treats from my office neighbors - she's got it down to a science. She is a gentle little soul, and I would take a bullet for her.
Lived in Spain for a year and loved it. My travel bug desperately needs to get fed. On the list: Southeast Asia. Chile. Peru. Great Barrier Reef.
Although common interests are important, I think it's far more important to have similar values and/or point of view of the world. Are you a genuine, down to earth person? Cool, so am I. Do you respect the living world around you? Awesome, me too. Do you like to ski and mountain bike? That’s great, I do too, but that’s not really important to me in a match. Maybe you can take me rock-climbing, and I can take you scuba-diving, but it's all the time in between those things that is what's important. I want to know what you think, and how you feel... What makes you tick?
