It looks like winter is finally slipping away. Spring officially arrived but the sun is still a little elusive. So I’m still eager for sunshine. Hopefully, shining on a bike path, or reflecting off a beautiful warm beach, or even shining through a coffee shop window onto the pages of a book. I'd love sun lighting up a hiking path, or warming the pavement in the city, or shining on my bare feet! Last month, on a 28' 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…). But now I'm excited because I can pedal outdoors! And if you are a regular cyclist it would be great fun to hit the road together!
What are you most looking forward to, now that the deep freeze has lifted? Hiking? Concerts? Tickets to other places? The Gym? Outdoor movies? Yard projects? Doing a Century? Your beach vacation? Less clothing? Sports? Diving? Something crazy?
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 I think the most important thing is that we LIKE each other. Even though we have some separate interests, we simply, really like to be with each other. I believe that when there are the inevitable bumps, problems and sticky places along the way, if we have those 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!
