I’ve done more relocating within the U.S. than international traveling, but took 3 trips late last year (to the British Isles, Turks & Caicos, and Ecuador and Costa Rica) to figure out what I liked about briefly being far away. Turns out, many things, from physical activities and natural settings to cultural experiences and chance encounters, but maybe not buffets and all-inclusive resorts. Some of the highlights were hiking and drinks with an old friend by the English coast, meeting an amazingly generous Northern Irish couple, and speaking lousy Spanish while trying to purchase insect repellent in Ecuador.
So in a nutshell, I’m pretty sophisticated now.
I like words, numbers, and people, which is why I studied literature, math, writing, and experimental psychology. People tell me it's an unusual combination, but what can I say? It makes sense to me.
Anyway, 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.
