Hi! Thanks for checking out the profile. I'm 33, never married, a traveling consultant, and I've spent much of my adult life out of the country.
Right now I'm not interested in being somebody's sole or primary partner. I'm looking for fun, new experiences, and friends.
I like my career without loving it. My real passion is for traveling and for live performance. I've been doing improv comedy for about six years.
I am looking for someone that I have a fair amount in common with. So... if you're nerdy, open minded, physically active, love traveling, and love attending/performing at cultural events you should message me.
What I’m doing with my life
Reading, traveling, working, eating, being active, pushing myself,
trying to figure out what makes me happiest. I travel a lot for
work but it is on a stable schedule.
I really want to learn how to use a "Salmon Ladder."
I’m really good at
Being in front of people. I love presenting ideas, performing, and making others laugh. I'm fantastic at ignoring my tonal deficiencies and giving a rocking karaoke performance. I'm very good at keeping my word and sticking to schedules (and can lose patience with those who are incapable of doing either.)
I love adventures- I've spent about half of the last decade living outside the US (East Europe, East Asia, and Latin America) and, fortunately, am pretty good at communicating in other languages.
The first things people usually notice about me
In the United States I think people notice my deadpan humor
quickly. I've been told I don't smile enough, and that might be
right, but part of my reasoning is that my jokes are funnier if you
don't see them coming.
My shoulders also get a lot of compliments.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love non-fiction, historical fiction, science fiction, Game of Thrones (books and television series.) I loved the new Battlestar Galactica, Firefly, The Office, Parks and Recreation, Arrow, The Flash, other nerdy things.
My favorite books, in no particular order would probably include: The Aubrey-Maturin novels, Les Miserables, The Dark Tower series, Guns, Germs, and Steel, A Hero of Our Time, and The Culture series by Iain M. Banks. I also love non-fiction travel writing.
I love all different sorts of food. I lived in East Asia for three years and, unfortunately, that ruined American-Chinese food for me. I also love Japanese food, Middle Eastern food, Korean food, and spicy/strong things.
The six things I could never do without
The performing arts
Friends who know when I'm joking
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I want to travel to next. The pros and cons of traveling alone. Food. Books that I'm reading. Did all my friends get into serious relationships too early or am I moving too slow? Ya know, helpful stuff like that.
I also wonder why women who are "strictly monogamous" "like" me on this site.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm definitely done with the partying phase of my life. I prefer
smaller groups of people and trying new things.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't always bring things up that are bothering me as quickly as I should. I grew up around a lot of overly sensitive and a bit unstable people and the tendency to swallow my feelings is still there. I'm working on it. I don't lie about my feelings but I can spend too much time trying to figure out how to communicate them well.
Above all though: If you're straight with me I will be straight with you.
You should message me if
... you like traveling without firm plans.
... you've ever dressed up as a superhero(ine) for Halloween (or would like to!)
... you like science fiction.
... you are truly independent and take responsibility for your own happiness.
... you're kinky and you own it.
