Despite having a technical job, I'm a very artsy person. I love theatre, music, dance, literature. I listen mostly to classical music. There's so much variety, and I find it so interesting. But I also like alternative pop/rock, jazz, blues, latin, etc. Some of my favorite musicians are Jason Mraz, Black Keys, K.T. Tunstell, Maroon 5 (Songs About Jane album), Dave Matthews Band, Alanis Morissette (Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie album), and Juanes.
I'm also a big reader. I'm working on Crime and Punishment at the moment. I'm also working on Ulysses, but it's quite a chore, so I can only take it in very small doses. I like to try my hand at writing as well. I'm currently working with poetry, although I've written fiction as well.
I'm not interested in dating, but I would like to make friends, male or female. Things I'm interested in doing/going to:
* book reading
* wine tasting
* cycling (I have a road bike, but I'm not an all-star)
* rock climbing (haven't done it -- would be interested in trying an indoor wall for starters)
* workout partner
Regarding a workout partner, I typically do about 40 minutes of cardio (running or swimming) and about 30 minutes of weights. I also like group exercise classes (Zumba and Body Attack). I belong to 24-Hour Fitness, so if you do too and want a workout partner, that's a plus. It would be nice to go work out with a friend and then hang out after.
I'm conservative in the sense that I expect people to behave respectfully toward me and keep their hands to themselves. I also don't have tattoos, ride motorcycles, or do drugs. But I'm an open-minded person. Religiously speaking, I define myself as a humanist, a Christian, an agnostic, and a philosopher. I follow Christianity and think it has a beautiful message, but if someone expects me to claim to know for certain whether every detail of the Bible is incontrovertibly true, well I'm sorry, I just don't.
Anyway, that's me, no beating around the bush. I love people, and I'd love to make more friends. Drop me a line if you'd like!
