I like confident, creative (in whatever form and it could be that you are a creative statistician), funny, thoughtful, super smart men. Men in general are pretty cool--I love how you open a door for me, touch the small of my back as we walk through a room just to remind me that you are there, and pop open the hood of a car and effortlessly remedy what ails it. I love the way you smell. (Well...most of you.)
Guys who are 20+ years younger than me: I'm not interested. I really am looking for a long-term relationship on here.
Married men: I'm sorry life is not all it could be at home, and I don't judge you for looking, but I am not interested in developing a relationship with you.
I am a creative person--I appreciate art in its many forms. I am passionate about photography and design, but can also get lost in a turn of phrase. I enjoy being outdoors--walking my dog, exploring. I also love road trips--and to find the hidden gems that need to be photographed. Love the train up to NYC--but I am not a fan of Broadway shows. I prefer off-Broadway theater or museums. I have a great sense of humor (I think!) and I can laugh at myself. I have no children, except aforementioned dog (but I swear I do not treat her as though she is human--I just spoil her a little), love Indie movies and a broad spectrum of music (except country--unless Ryan Bingham counts), and my favorite museums are the Phillips Collection in DC, and the AVAM in Baltimore. I appreciate fine food and wine--and like to explore ethnic restaurants. I have explored the country (although not fully) and want to explore the world.
I selected "full-figured" for body type--but I am actually probably somewhere between curvy and big and beautiful. I think the term "big and beautiful" scares many of you off. I am no couch potato, and appreciate it if you aren't as well. I would love a gym or activity partner.
That's a lot about me--I'd like to hear about you.
Caveat--I had knee replacement surgery late May--so I am still healing and not 100% yet. I'm ready to date--but not ready to hike five miles. (But I'm getting there!)
PS I don't smoke--and can't date someone who does--I'm very allergic.
