I took a break from online dating for the last couple years, mainly due to focusing on obtaining the necessary technical skills, experience, and discipline to become a freelance Software Engineer. I love what I do, and so found the whole endeavor extremely rewarding. With goals achieved, I'm now starting to get back to having a fun, non-work related life. Extremely thrilled to get back into traveling. This summer I did 3 weeks in jungle'ish mountains of South America, and 10 days on a Vermont/New Hampshire getaway. The key ingredient I'm missing is that special person in which to share special times.
When it comes to relationships, I enjoy sharing similar interests, but I also like trying new things. And, I wouldn’t mind feeling as though I’m challenging someone to think outside of the box, or try something new and exciting, as well. I think that is how two people grow and learn together, thus…become closer. One thing to note is that I'm not looking to engage in endless emails/texts prior to the first meet.
I enjoy music and art, so a woman who feels the same would be a woman I’d love to meet and get to know. History and Politics are other interests of mine. Favorite movies are Annie Hall, The Big Lebowski, Manhattan, Being There, Silver Linings Playbook, Garden State, The Darjeeling Limited, Everything Is Illuminated, The Green Mile, Donnie Darko, Clerks, Shaun of the Dead, Office Space, It's A Wonderful Life, and The Shawshank Redemption. I'm a really big Woody Allen fan and so really enjoy most of his work. As far as music is concerned I enjoy live music with a particular fondness for Phish, The Grateful Dead, moe, Joni Mitchell, Paul Simon, Bob Dylan, King Yellowman, and Neil Young.
I’m not Conservative whatsoever, so I wouldn’t mesh well with someone who is. Beyond physical attraction, which is important, for sure – I mostly value a ‘cuteness’ – to me, that’s a sense of humor, ease, confidence and a bit of quirkiness. A positive personality is very important, as is a feeling of connection and chemistry. I'd like my eventual partner to be my best friend, in every sense of the word. And I look forward to seeing where we can go from there.
