I love to explore, and to learn. I do read a lot, but not all the time, and everything from stories to biographies to technical books. I can easily get lost for hours in history and art museums. While my list of international travel destinations isn’t really long yet, I have been to most of the major cities on the east coast and traveling abroad more is a priority for me.
Relationships are important to me. I tend to have a smaller number of close friends, but really value those friendships. I also have a great relationship with my brother and parents, and try to see them at least every few months.
I value my physical and mental health and fitness, and I’m pretty active. Aside from exercise, I enjoy tennis, hiking, and social sports leagues. I look forward to attempting a triathlon or Spartan run, want to learn to rock climb, and would like to explore the outdoor trails around here more extensively.
I work as a patent examiner in Alexandria, and would like to open a small patent prosecution law firm some day in the future. I also dream of writing a novel, and occasionally tinker with ideas in my head, but I’m not close to having a rough draft ready yet.
Some other random things I enjoy: live anything - sports, music, theater, comedy. Great food and new restaurants. A well-crafted cappuccino. Natural light. TED talks. Dogs. Deep conversations its participants get lost in.
I’m looking for a partner who shares some of these things with me. I especially value someone who is open-minded, empathetic, affectionate, and a great communicator. Someone who is active, values her health and fitness, and is willing to try new activities. A woman who is curious about the world, open to other cultures and viewpoints, loves to learn, and really wants to explore the world. I’m seeking a true partnership, built on a foundation of friendship, with romance, passion and chemistry added, with a woman who is looking forward to a marriage and family at the right time down the road.
If I sound like someone you would like to meet, go ahead and message me. Good luck!
