My self-summary
At last! A break in the winter with a sunny 66 degrees, a great bike ride on the WOD, followed with bread and butter on a bench in the sun at Great Harvest. And then... snow and 20 degrees!
The weather is kind of bipolar.

I'm getting in a bike ride every time there's a warm-up. I love cycling (I'm not very competitive though - I was once chased down by a turkey). My spunky inner tomboy likes to walk, hike, get my hands dirty, do geeky stuff, and will even toss a frisbee or shoot hoops with you (I may not sink any shots, but it’ll be fun trying!). The wide-eyed girly side, though, likes all the cultural stuff, including art, theater, films, dancing, and any other excuse to slip into a dress. The entire package is tied together with laughter and lots of affection.

I love good food. So the DMV is heaven for me. Breakfast joints are my favorite (even at night), but I love assembling dinner from a great appetizer menu (recommendations?). The fun is choosing what to get and then sharing it together (or not: If it's, say, sweetbreads, you can have that plate all to yourself!).

I’m relatively new to the area so I like to explore. A fun day might include a map of the city and a Metro pass. (The Post’s Going-Out-Guide ran an article on fun dates around almost every Metro station. Which stop would you choose?). Cold and blustery out? Then maybe walk through a gallery or museum - have you got a favorite? Or throw down a mini golf challenge at the H Street Country Club. Closer to home, making a pizza together can also be an adventure. When Spring finally arrives, then a beautiful hike or bike ride in the country on a sunny afternoon would be perfect (with or without the turkey). Really, anything can be fun with two people possessing adventurous, conspiratorial attitudes.

I love to hear people's stories of trips to various interesting places and how they experienced them - by foot, by tour, by bike, in a tent, from a hotel, from a rental house. My own favorite vacation is in far western Oklahoma, nudging the New Mexico border. I actually go there every fall for a camping, foodie-ing, cycling, and starry nights adventure (see cycling photos). But now that winter is here I’m thinking, “snowshoeing”. My skiing is more than rusty but if you're a skier, I'm willing to give it a go. (truth be told, sledding is my favorite snowy fun - doesn't take much prowess, and it's ALL about the downhills)

What I'm looking for? I’m interested in a long term relationship with my best friend and lover. I think the perfect relationship is not defined by "hearts, flowers and bliss" (although I'm a Romantic), but is one in which we are completely relaxed with each other. We're loved for just who we are. We've got some sizzling heat goin', we can talk to and play with each other, and we willingly share of ourselves.

The perfect man for me is smart, fit, light-hearted, and kind-of handsome. He's outgoing. He can slow dance, share his feelings and we make each other laugh.
What I’m doing with my life
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.

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 10. Never got to have kids. My family is small and they're all on the west coast. I miss them. If you have a family you love and play with, I hope you will eventually share them with me.
I’m really good at
Conversation with some depth
Laughing till I can't talk
Croquet :-)
blueberry bars
Not so good at dancing, but I love it anyway.
The first things people usually notice about me
My personality. I walk in smiling.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Avid reader, but no more than one at a time. This year’s standouts: The Dog Stars by Peter Heller, and, Into Thin Air, by Jon Krakauer. Currently: Flimsy Little Plastic Miracles.

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. A few of last year’s memorable films were: Life of Pi, Mud, The Past. And I laughed till I couldn’t breathe watching the utterly ridiculous, sophomoric, This is the End.

Music--indie/alt music. Virgin Mobile Live Feed. 89.7. 101.1

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
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
What to do this weekend.
On a typical Friday night I am
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 and getting a flat on my bike?

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.
