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 or work out at the gym in the evenings. Currently getting into shape for some scuba diving and rock climbing in Puerto Rico next February has been a focus.
What I’m doing with my life
Last year was one full of surprises and epiphanies. Spending several years focused on running a software business meant that I had less time to volunteer, and I set out to remedy the situation this past year by becoming a mentor for Big Brothers Big Sisters. The experience has been indescribably rewarding and fulfilling to a degree that I would not have thought possible.

While it was not some sort of transcendental experience that made me re-evaluate my life, sell my worldly possessions, and hide in seclusion on a remote mountaintop to meditate on the meaning of life, it has profoundly changed my motivations and desires. Having a Little Brother who relies on you and sees you as a role model is a tremendous privilege and responsibility, and I have become even more grateful for all the opportunities I have availed myself of that I have taken for granted. Seeing and experiencing hardship together has led me to the decision to spend even more of my time, money, and energy on making our local community a better place to live. The dividends in humility and gratitude that I have reaped from my volunteer efforts are immeasurable.
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 because it posits that the reaction to darkness for beings living on a world where daylight was omnipresent would be quite different than for those of us who have a diurnal exposure to it.

My favorite poem is Kubla Khan, a Vision in a Dream by Samuel Coleridge, because how can you go wrong with a line like
"Weave a circle round him thrice,
And close your eyes with holy dread,
For he on honey-dew hath fed,
And drunk the milk of Paradise."

As far as food - I can't resist Indian Naan and Dim Sum - you can never have enough Dim Sum.
The six things I could never do without
Shoes - Why does every activity need a different kind of shoe; it is getting hard to sort my running, climbing, and dancing shoes?
Camera - I love taking pictures of strange and unusual people, places, and things
Books - I would never know what to do with my free time if I didn't have something in front of me to read.
Why six? I am pretty content with just my three essentials (even if that means I am walking around with mismatched socks).
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 25–35
  • 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.
