Originally from Wisconsin. I've lived in Georgia, South Carolina, and Taiwan. Seattle is home.
I'm looking for that rare person to person realness. To relax in a park with not-really-hidden cocktails, and talk about everything that matters and then some stuff that doesn't, or to practice the secret art of not having to talk at all.
Ideally, I'm looking for someone with a passion for cycling, hiking, camping, hanging out at the lake, dancing, or just looking for an activity partner.
Otherwise, someone chill and soulful with a cultivated appreciation for the weird and the wonderful, whatever that is for you.
I have a big-boy job, and so I get to focus on being in the world without having to fret for the future, which is a rare privilege. But still am seeking that 'next step'.
When I'm home alone I like to dance in my underwear in the kitchen listening to nu disco. Example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vIhjUKNjBBM
I tend to think that I just live a wholesome life peppered with a few modest luxuries. I enjoy good food, good music, good spaces, good people... Essentially I lean towards quality rather than quantity, but not always.
Fair warning, I'm probably more gracious than charming. So if you are entering the online dating world expecting to get swept off your feet you may want to re-think your approach. With me or anybody. I don't have low expectations, but I see the best in people and I will put what I don't know about you in the best light until I know otherwise. I know enough to not expect sparks to fly and that the best relationships occur with cultivation and respect for one another.
I have a sense of self and I would say that the most important thing I could hope to find is a return from someone.
