I definitely fall into that geek mold but not nerd. Though recently a friend told me that nerds are more in than geeks, so if that is the case, I fall more into the nerd mold than the geek mold. I am active, I love being outdoors, and I can tell the difference between a Cabernet and a Pinot. I do probably spend a bit too much time on reddit. Damn you cute cat photos!
As for athletic, because I know all you ladies want someone who is 6'4", 220 lbs, full of muscles, and sensitive, all I can say is that I am sensitive. :) I am also in fairly decent shape, and though I will admit I do not fall in the 6'4" category, I want you to know that I can leap a building a single bound (as long as the building is about 3' high and no more than about a foot deep). I have done a couple triathlons in the last few years and I typically work out 3-4 times a week usually going to boot camp in the morning.
Some of the things that I like are wine, good conversation, golf, traveling, things that make me laugh, reading a good book, enjoying a good dinner, cooking, skiing, taking my dog for a walk, staying up late to watch a good movie, listening to music too loud, good espresso, going to the beach, going for a hike, swimming, biking, going for a run, playing tennis with a friend, and I have just started getting back into photography.
I am always up for traveling some place new, or visiting some of the places I have been before. My favorite vacation type is spending it someplace warm with sun and a beach, but I love doing other places as well. A weekend in Napa is always a favorite. My favorite foreign location has been the Greek Islands (Mykonos in particular), but I have also been to quite a few other places I have loved such as Australia, Russia and Italy.
I am looking for my best friend, someone I can spend my life with, someone who makes me laugh, someone who laughs at my jokes and someone who is the first person I think of when I wake up in the morning and who is the last thing I think of when I go to sleep.
Just a few random tidbits about me:
- I play an extrovert on TV, but I am really a hidden introvert.
- I have a huge soft spot in my heart for animals.
- I can hold a conversation on a variety of topics and enjoy learning new things.
- I can hang out in the boardroom or a night club and fit in perfectly fine in both.
- I usually have people laughing with me.
- I know way too much useless trivia.
- I make a mean grilled cheese.
- I despise burpees.
- I have been single for 3.5 years. Very amicably divorced in 2012 after a 2 year separation (slowed due to paperwork primarily).
