I’ve done more relocating than vacationing in the past, but went away 3 times since October, visiting the British Isles, Turks & Caicos, and Ecuador and Costa Rica. It was like a really fun series of experiments to figure out that my ideal vacation blends lots of physical activity (biking, kayaking, white-water rafting, whatever) with social and cultural elements (hiking and drinks with old friends in England, meeting an amazingly generous Northern Irish couple, speaking lousy Spanish while trying to purchase insect repellent in Ecuador).
I’m pretty sure this means I’m sophisticated now.
I tend to look things up. I’m academically trained, so I might even be good at it. This means I haven’t gone to a really bad movie in a long time, and if you’re wondering whether something is true, I’ll find out for you. Then again, I’m perfectly capable of not doing this. We can see that movie your friend assistant video edited (43 on Metacritic), and if you want a hot toddy when you're not feeling well, sure! (The placebo effect is real.)
I'm wry, perceptive, kind, and not gifted at writing about myself. I’m looking to date someone interested in a relationship and a future.

Also, you take care of yourself in terms of diet and fitness. Evenings of bar food and cocktails are fun, but let's earn them.
Finally, you live in Manhattan or Brooklyn or somewhere convenient.
