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

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!
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, cycling, 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 beneath 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. Some favorites off the top of my head: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Stranger Than Fiction, Life of Pi, Phenomenon.

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.
The excellent pecan sticky buns that are uniquely terrific at the Whole Foods in Vienna, and whether it's worth the drive to go get one.
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, or a nice walk. Suggestions? Summer brings many more options.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

Besides my phobia 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.

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 long-term relationship that's deeper than the ordinary.
