So that's the current stuff. A little background: I have hippy parents. Or rather they WERE hippies. Now they seem like pretty normal folks with progressive, but not radical, ideals. They separated when I was young and four years abroad followed. One year in Ireland, three in Holland. Included in that adventure was a dutch stepfather and family. That experience has definitely informed my world view. Since then I've been a NW fixture, more or less, with annual East Coast ventures.
I'm fairly serious but I love to laugh. I have a good, not too large, group of friends who are smart and funny. Smart and funny are important qualities, if you ask me. I'm thoughtful and choose my words carefully. I need time with my friends, but I'm definitely not an extrovert. I like being a homebody.
I want a partner to share my activities with, to cook with, go out on the town with, to laugh with, to hang out on the beach in the sun and read with, to have long conversations that challenge your outlook on life with, to travel to far away lands with, and last but not least, someone who is attractive and exciting with whom to play at life.
