I can seem quite reserved at first, but it gets less. Someone a little more outgoing helps to bring me out of my shell, and in return I can offer deeper reflection and conversation. Listening to and understanding your thoughts and feelings would be enjoyable. As an honest and straightforward person, I'm not into games. Trying new things has lots of appeal, everything from meditation to ziplining. But I also love a quiet night in, some quality time to be together. Travel is great, and road trips, having travelled a lot in North America, have brought me great pleasure.
Being quite science, computing, and ideas-oriented, but also somewhat practical, someone who also likes ideas, but lives in the real world, would be very appealing. Lots of kinds of humour appeal, everything from biting satire to funny cat videos. Staying healthy and getting some form of exercise is important to me, but I am not a fitness fanatic. My politics tends to be left leaning but realistic, not seeing others suffer, and freedom of choice in one's own lifestyle.
Most importantly, I am looking for someone whom I see eye-to-eye with. Someone whom I can be there for, share great affection, deep thoughts and feelings, romantic time together, or just have some fun.
