Well-educated, well-read, physical, active. An eternal student. (Be warned: I am an intellectual. I am geek. That doesn't mean I spend my days/nights caught in front of a computer screen or behind a book. I prefer to take my geekiness to the gym, the beach and on long walks.)
I love to laugh loud, talk deep. I'm passionate about everything I do--writing, teaching in the classroom, singing, cooking, stretching my limits in the gym, reading, experiencing the cultural wealth that surrounds me in New York.
Service is very important to me. I am proud of the two plus years I spent as Peace Corps Volunteer. I am kind of a bleeding heart liberal.
I have a very full life, but I wish that I could make a long-term romantic relationship work for me. It feels like the Final Frontier.
I'm looking for someone who is passionate about his life and open to sharing his passions. Not surprisingly, complacency is one of my biggest turn-offs. Even though my own interests are very specific, I don't really need to have someone who shares those same intellectual or artistic or creative pursuits. I'd much rather find a man who has his own.
There are few things I enjoy more than a man teaching me about something he knows and loves.
