Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi – Thanks so much for stopping by!

Winter is dug in and I’m thinking of sunshine. It could be sun over snowshoes, sun reflecting off a beautiful warm beach, sun shining through a coffee shop window onto the pages of a book, sun lighting up a hiking path, sun warming the pavement in the city. I'd just like it to shine in my vicinity! Last week, on a 30' morning, I opened my balcony doors and put my bicycle trainer right in front of them so I could ride in the sunshine. (It worked! Sunglasses, tank top, heat, sweat, muscles, tan, Ahhhh…)

What are you doing to get through winter? Ski trips? Tickets to warmer climates? The Gym? Lots and lots of movies? Projects? Very serious poetry? Chocolate?

I like to do and try new, fun things. For me, life is kind of one big adventure. And it doesn’t matter whether I’m doing small, quiet things or I’m being active, because ‘adventure’ is really a way of looking at the world. It’s being open to the experience. So floating down the Colorado River, cycling through Tuscany, or exploring a city is Adventure. So is simply trying a new route to work, reading a new book, noticing the clouds before a storm, watching a lizard, or looking at stars.

Adventure is also experiencing another person on a deeper level. And I am looking to share life with someone who is my best friend, playmate, and lover: You can talk with your best friend about almost anything because you respect each other; you have great fun and play well together when you're good playmates, and just a simple touch from your lover gets your attention. But most important, you LIKE each other. I believe that when there are the inevitable bumps, problems and sticky places along the way, if we have those four things going for us, we’ll work through anything that comes along.

That’s my philosophy, anyway. And that’s the kind of person I’m looking for. I love a guy with a curious mind, a great sense of humor, and a relaxed, genuine way with people. I’m attracted to slightly geeky guys because they’re interested in many things (and, honestly, because I’m slightly geeky, too). I’m very fit (although not a superb athlete), active, outdoorsy, reflective, healthy and playful. If you are too, I would love to hear from you!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm finding adventures from the ordinary to the extraordinary. Love nature, being outdoors, movies galore, star gazing, and sharing.

A passion for environmental biology skewed (career-wise) into industry - developing therapeutics for difficult diseases. It's rewarding, and my coworkers are smart, quirky, funny, generous so it's a good place to spend the day.

When off work, I really enjoy both play and great conversation with people - and in dating, they're good ways of getting past superficial and really connecting.

My stats: married 17 years, divorced about 12. Never got to have kids. One cat - who will trigger your allergies so, hopefully, you're willing to pop an anti-cat dander pill!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Conversation with some depth
Laughing till I can't talk
Croquet :-)
blueberry bars
Not so good at dancing, but I love it anyway.

Avid reader, but no more than one at a time. Standouts: The Dog Stars by Peter Heller, and, Into Thin Air, by Jon Krakauer. I just consumed, Hard Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World, by Haruki Murakami. If you like very weird stories, Murakami is your guy! Then I finished The Martian - excellent, moving story full of heart - a nail-biter to the very end! If you're at all geeky, this is the book for you! Now I'm casting around for my next read... Suggestions?

I watch very little tv, but I love movies. My nephew told me I’d have more fun at the movies if I got over only seeing “good” ones. He was right! I enjoy all kinds now. I’ll mark my calendar for a sci-fi premier. Really like the quirky or thoughtful independent films. I make a point to see the Oscar nominated Animated Shorts every year, and recently caught the current nominations at E Street Cinema in DC - they are always fun!

Music-- mostly indie/alt music, with bits of many other things tossed-in for good measure.

I’m a total foodie, but even so, there’s nothing better than peanuts and a dog at a Nats game (ketchup and relish, please. No mustard will touch my dog).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Affection in many forms - hugging is like an instant drug.
2. Sunlight and blue sky give me energy. Having said that, I love four seasons because they change things up.
3. Curiosity, an open mind, and a great conversation (they go together).
4. Special people I connect with - we exchange support, acceptance, encouragement, laughter, heart and good will.
5. Nature
6. A really good cup of tea, with milk, gets my day off the ground.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What to do this weekend.
How do you prefer to spend your weekend time?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Not sure there is a 'typical' Friday night. This time of year I might be meeting friends for dinner or maybe a games night & potluck (lots of laughing and silliness involved). But if completely on my own, I'm probably heading in or out to a movie or maybe jumping into a great book. Suggestions? Summer brings many more options.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

Besides my phobias of parallel parking?

I like stargazing. (I can hear you now, "NEXT") but picture this - a guy, a girl, a grassy field on a warm summer night, middle of nowhere, the Milky Way arching overhead....
Heaven, on many levels.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
if you like to adventure, ride bikes, laugh a lot, hug, and generally like people.
And... you like being around positive energy, slightly geeky chicks, you want a playful, affectionate partner and a companionate relationship that's deeper than the ordinary.
