I'm well traveled, upbeat with a healthy sense of fun and relationships, looking to meet a nice, upbeat, engaging gentleman to spend quality time with building a good friendship and examine the possibility of a long term relationship. I always look for the positive in people and make friends easily. I can converse on a multitude of subjects, but also know when to be quiet and listen.
I've lived and traveled globally, including the US a good part of my life; multi cultural/ lingual, open minded and accepting/embracing of differences and diversity.
I'm divorced, have one adult kid (25), and live with 2 dogs in Washington DC. Some adjectives that describe me well are, optimist, friendly/approachable, straightforward, open minded, adventurous, spontaneous, independent, affectionate, intellectually curious, compassionate, honest, artistic, analytical, genuine, balanced.
Enjoy travel and both outdoor and indoor activities, including hikes, long walks, kayaking, bicycle rides, sailing, snorkeling, swimming, gardening, yoga, live sports, explorng new places, performing arts, theatre, live music in small venues, dancing, cooking, entertaining. lively banter, engaging conversations about a wide variety of topics, entertaining friends and family. Family and friends are very important to me, and hopefully to you too.
Ps I'm not interested in a virtual relationship, not into texting or emailing endlessly, I'd rather meet in person and get to know you.
Movies....Foreign, espionage, comedy, indie
NPR, BBC, Frontline, PBS, .... Honestly, I don't watch much TV, I don't have cable! .... prefer radio and talking to people.
Music... Listen to a variety of music, Enjoy going to live concerts esp indi bands..and love dancing! These days I've been expanding and going to the Opera, Symphony, live theater etc... it's been great food for the mind.
Enjoy cooking and entertaining ....Most types of cuisine as long as it's fresh and healthy. Having lived around the world, I enjoy cooking dishes from all over the planet. Hope you enjoy a good bottle of wine, fresh home cooked meals and great conversation and going out and checking out the ever evolving dining scene in DC.
