My idea of a great date is daysailing in the San Juan Islands followed by anchoring in a quiet bay with Mount Baker hanging in the alpine glow, me cooking you dinner, drinking wine, snuggled warmly in the cabin of my sailboat listening to good music and conversation.
I am an attorney with a tax and bankruptcy practice in Everett. I came to the Pacific Northwest right after college and it’s been home ever since. My center of gravity is my two sons, one in college and the other in high school.
I enjoy all that Seattle has to offer. Dance, clubs, Benaroya Hall, SAM, the Seattle Times, the Aquarium, fusion restaurants. I see us trying inventive mixed drinks after foreign art films, cycling the Burk Gilman trail, kayaking Lake Union, and walking Discovery Park on a blustery winter’s day before ducking into a classical guitar concert.
I love to eat, mostly healthy whole foods. Cooking a new recipe together while listening to music you brought ranks high on my to-do list.
I am in shape. I backpacked the Grand Canyon the last four spring seasons on remote trails, some of which required climbing and repelling. Last September I backpacked the North Cascades with my friends from Taos. Last summer I rode for the third time the Seattle-to-Portland bike ride. I ride my bike to work three days a week, just under an hour each way.
I'm not plain vanilla. I hope you are not either. My sailboat is built out of steel to a custom design: Strong, stable, dry, and unique. There is no other boat like her in the world; she’s no production fiberglass boat. That’s my style. I have a pretty strong inner compass. I am not much of a follower or into trends. I haven’t owned a television in twenty years. I live my own life, with adventure at the core.
I am seeking a woman who values communication, trust, and honesty. I do not, however, want a mirror image of myself. I look forward to learning new things from you and your life. I appreciate a woman who is well read and educated. Intelligence is a major turn on for me, just like the right curves in tight jeans.
So, if you are young at heart, fit, disciplined in some ways yet impulsive in others, and love adventures big and small, I just might be your guy. I have a berth for you. Better yet, if the weather gets snotty and we both start turning green, I’ll give the wheel to you because that’s just how I am.
