Hmmm the struggle to come up with a profile opener is real. :)
45 in actual years, 35 in OKCupid years. Divorced years ago, no kids, alimony, etc. California native. Ivy Leaguer. Foodie. Confessed nerd. Confessed dog owner. Lifetime learner. Well-traveled. Competitive cyclist (not for a living, sadly...I wish!). 800 FICO score.
I'm compassionate, determined, adaptable and self-aware, all wrapped up with a bow of good humor and sarcasm.
I try to make my own luck, but I also revel in the serendipitous. I've found the best things in life often cannot be planned, even in a world where OKCupid exists. ;)
In a match, similar values and goals, respect, teamwork and that intangible chemistry are essential. But...the last thing I want to do is date my clone (sly OKCupid question reference there!). Let's savor and celebrate our differences!
I'm incredibly thankful to have friends of all ages that provide me with interesting and diverse experiences and perspectives on the world. I'm comfortable be it riding with collegiate cyclists, exchanging teaching ideas with professors, dressing down for a rave or rocking a suit at a museum opening, and I am looking for someone who is similarly flexible, or at least doesn't judge someone who is! :)
