My ideal match would be a man who is: interesting, interested in the world (news, history, art, culture), independent, respectful, funny, active, smart, self-confident, happy, drama-free, open minded.
A man who is comfortable in his own skin, enjoys good food, likes to travel, loves animals, will go see pretty much anyone in concert, appreciates flavor and spice (in life and in food!). A man who’s lived a life and gotten some scars (but please no open gapping wounds!). A man who enjoys wine and likes drinking it without having a drinking problem.... although appreciates my wine buying problem.
Are you a man who takes life very seriously but has an enormous capacity to be goofy, to laugh at himself, and to laugh with (and at) me. I certainly provide plenty of material.
I'm not in to yelling, fighting, drama, or games. I don't run with scissors. I like to think my emotional baggage is carry-on, not so big it's gotta be checked. I’m financially secure and looking for a partner who is as well. Honesty, respectfulness, and monogamy are non-negotiable. Are you still reading?
I’m primarily an urbanite, loving beautiful cities like San Francisco and NY. I love the southwest (especially Zion and NM), the desert, and Native American culture and art.
One of my most prized possessions is my passport. The world is so big and there is so much more of it I want to see. Where should we go next and where will we eat? Right now I'm planning a fall trip to Cambodia and Thailand.
Outside of work, I donate money and time to an amazing non-profit that focuses on illiteracy in the developing world.
Movies: Dead Again, anything Bond, random SIFF movies
Music: almost anything. Lean to folk, bluegrass, country, or anything live and good.
Food: mostly vegetarian. Almost always with wine tho' not often at breakfast and lunch!
