My self-summary
I moved to the Pacific Northwest from Texas, and decided to stay because strangely enough, I really like the weather here - I've never had to carry an umbrella around and never had to encounter the 100 degree humid days like sometimes happened in Austin. Having lived here a while, I also took up many of the common pastimes for this area - hiking on the variety of nature trails that dot the I-90 corridor, rock climbing in Vantage under the blazing desert sun, and cross country skiing during the winter months when being cooped up indoors would drive me nuts.

My interests are quite eclectic - I love sitting at Barnes and Noble, reading a good thriller or playing a board game (Settlers of Catan is one my favorites), but I am equally comfortable spending a night out Tango or Salsa dancing at the Century ballroom. That of course also dictates my tastes in music to a degree - I like Latin music quite a bit, though I admit I have a weakness for 80s music as well. I am also diligent about keeping in shape, so I usually swim and work out every evening at the gym. I plan on running the Rock and Roll Marathon next year, so I've spent an inordinate amount of time on the treadmill the past several months as well.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently, I run a small software business (unusual I know for Seattle!) which keeps me quite busy during the day. I have really enjoyed being a business owner, and building this business up from the ground, so I have focused a lot of time and energy on it and am proud of what we've accomplished since opening our doors in 2007. Within the next several years, I would like to take a year off and travel around the world. I volunteer tutor at the local library, but would like to see those efforts expand to something a little more global and wide reaching.
I’m really good at
I excel at self deprecating humor! In addition to that, I also happen to dance Argentine Tango fairly well.
The first things people usually notice about me
The most often heard comment about me is that I am always smiling or laughing. No matter what I am doing, I try to enjoy myself and hope that everyone around me is also enjoying themselves.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Pride and Prejudice still has to be my favorite book. Something about Jane Austen's classic never gets old. I also really like Paradise Lost and recently Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell. I was reminded recently of a short story that is a bulwark of the science fiction genre - Nightfall by Isaac Aasimov - which I found to be very thought provoking.

As far as food - I can't resist Indian Naan and blueberry cheesecake and Dim Sum - you can never have enough Dim Sum.
The six things I could never do without
Pocket lint
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to clear all these stray thoughts out of my head.
On a typical Friday night I am
Trying to catch up on my sleep! Actually, almost every Friday, I am probably out dancing Argentine Tango. In case you couldn't tell, that's one of my favorite activities and I try to get in as much dancing as I can.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a fairly private person so if there is something you want to know, you will just have to pry it out of me in person!
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 23–33
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating
You should message me if
*Minor update*
Obviously if anything in my profile piques your interest you would probably contact me anyway, but really if you want to chat with someone who is well read, and has an opinion on most topics without being fanatical about it, feel free to drop me a message!

*Back to your original programming*

Now that I have a bit more free time, I am looking to get back into dating again and find someone who shares my interests and my passions in life. I am a bit old-fashioned, having grown up in Texas and believing that a gentleman should always treat everyone with dignity, politeness, and consideration, whether that means opening doors, or walking on the curb side of the sidewalk, but I have also adopted the very liberal values of the Northwest, and would like to find someone who is independent and confident in herself.

A sense of humor is a must as I tend to be somewhat clumsy and end up laughing at myself quite a bit. Someone who doesn't take life too seriously and is able to share in self deprecating laughter and jokes would be ideal!

Because I know what I want in life and try to always have a plan to get there, I definitely find ambitious and goal oriented women to be very attractive. I am looking for someone who is confident in herself and her own abilities, and at ease with where her life is.

Holding a conversation is also very important to me, so someone with intelligence and wit are crucial, whether it is lightly bantering over coffee, or a deep philosophical discourse on the merits of our system of government.
