...that's right ladies...renaissance man
(a little sarcasm there...laughing yet?).
Health and fitness are important to me as exercise is part of my daily routine: weights, cardio, restarted my yoga practice, as well as the occasional kick-boxing class.
As I’ve gotten older
(hold on... may I use the words "more mature"?
yes, that sounds better... Thank you)
...my idea of “fun” has shifted a bit.
Don’t get me wrong - I love going out and letting loose with the best of them; but I’ve learned, at least for me, it’s about WHO you're with, not necessarily WHERE you are. Subsequently, the idea of staying in, watching a movie and cooking, (a bit of a novice, but my menu is growing - i.e. a selection of salmon dishes, my healthy pizza, healthy chili, stir-fry, etc.) or ordering in, can be just as awesome as going out and getting crazy.
Perhaps I’m a bit of dork...?
If "dork" means unconventional? then yes. And if "unconventional" means that I'd rather see a show or movie over a sporting event, or go to a museum or listen to live jazz vs. staring at 20 HDTV's at a sports bar, then definitely; I have embraced my dork-ness!
I've done a fair share of traveling (been to pretty much every state in the US, some of Europe, Canada and Mexico), mostly associated with my education or work.
However, I haven't had a "real vacation" in quite a long time (though... I did treat myself to a couple of days in the Florida Keys while down south last fall for a gig...that was quite nice!).
I'd certainly like to travel more...there's so much to see out there, I wish I would allow myself to do it.
I've been catering this fantasy of a several week EuroRail trip throughout Europe (duh!!! - where else could someone take a EuroRail trip? Ha! - sides hurting yet?).
"Next summer," I keep saying to myself. Maybe I'm holding off..?
secretly waiting to go WITH someone....?
"How is this guy still single?!?!?" you must be asking yourself.
You tell me. (Hell, I'm up for some constructive criticism ... we can discuss...)
Sincerely, to offer an answer to the aforementioned question to myself; in addition to a career change in my late 20's/early 30's (I used to be a registered lobbyist in Washington, DC), I was also engaged for some time coming out of grad school.
so...yes, I've had my share of serious relationships (the aforementioned engagement) but alas,
"Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans."
We can talk more on that, if you like. The point is, I'm still looking, and very open to finding someone/something significant.
