(disclaimer... I'm not on here looking to give butt rubs, but I did find it funny enough to elicit smiles)

Sooo, first off - amazing kisser, good snuggler, very obedient and such an adorable face... and that's just my dog!
I actually do have a pretty cool dog named Hogan who helps keep me sane on stressful work days, is my favorite hiking buddy, and is currently snuggled up on the couch with his head and paw on my leg. (He's in one of the pictures) He's also actually the official office dog at my firm. He has terminal cancer right now so we are making great memories together.
I appreciate art, music, nature, active lifestyles, cooking, laughing and playing, and diversity in opinion, culture and ideas. I'm a terrible sleeper but a good cuddler (until I get too hot and push you to the other side of the bed)
For going out, I prefer somewhere outside but yes to random dive bars over the hype of Belltown-club style places.
In random order, some things I like (but not all-inclusive):
kayaking around Seattle
art and art events
creativity and creative people
ice cold glacier lakes after a hot hike to get there
picking wild huckleberries in the alpine wilderness areas and putting them on some good vanilla ice cream later that night
giving strong massages
cutting new trails in the wilderness
dreaming of places to travel to
snowshoeing cross country skiing
skiing and snowboarding
Confident, fun people are a turn on; just healthy and fun.
Fun and laughter
The mountains and water
I guess we could all really do without many things but we just wouldn't lead the life we currently lead then would we?
Why I don't ever develop one of my artistic interests more.
How I can make more of an impact; learn to cook better; make more money; travel; and in general, have fun.
I honestly feel the best fit for me is a mentally healthy mountain/adventure leaning person.
I'm not too serious about being serious but I'm serious about finding someone that I absolutely love being around - I figure everything else will line up as it should. Ideally she would have long-term potential, but I'm not looking to throw a proof of purchase on anything right away.
If I ask you out for coffee, a walk or something, it's because I'm interested in seeing if we click. I know from experience that the back and forth of emails, text and phone calls can be misleading so I'd rather just see if we can click in person. If we don't work out during that, no biggy... we move on.
