Upon return, I relocated to Santa Rosa, leaving the vortex of Silicon Valley for a better life/work balance. Weekends are a balance of setting up a new home... and exploring Sonoma just out my front door!
I'm hoping the cosmic roullette wheel will find me a match. I think I bring to the conversation some enthusiasm, abit of clever wit, the occasional valuable insight, a curiosity for the world and an appreciation for life. Let's see what happens...;-)
I'm not a spandex maniac, but I enjoy bicycling on weekends (love the meditation of a ride).
I "eat out" 2-3 evenings a week (How about you? I have found this to be a revealing Q...;-)
I'm always planning the next adventure (weekend bike trip or annual int'l trip). Occasionally, I take an evening class (history of Yosemite, backyard botany, sketching, iPhonography...) I have a small circle of friends, and room for a partner in my life.
Usually, I'm researching an upcoming trip. Two summers ago, I bicycled in No Italy and So Bohemia (my father's heritage). My goal is one international trip a year. In a perfect world, I will find someone with the same attitude so we can explore together!
Then there is foraging for food; I am an omnivore. I enjoy everything from BBQ to Asian Fusion, Italian to Thai... I like it all! I enjoy grilling, stir fry, and composing salads.
My favorite app? Pandora...;-) I listen to all kinds of acid jazz, gypsy, and classical. (Occasionally, I backslide with B52s, Tears For Fears, Lyle Lovett or Steely Dan...I know, I'm all over the map. Our generation was blessed!)
Friends (a few valued souls that I have 'a pact' with)
Quiet Hour at Peet's (it might also be the coffee)
Sleep Cycle (without it, the whole circus grinds to a halt)
iPhone (it's like living in the future!)
...that leaves one... I was hoping it could be you...;-)
I think all of us, at this stage of life and under these conditions (online dating), should be aware by now of our old habits with boy-girl dating rituals, clear about what we want and need, and playful and non-judgemental about this whole crazy business...;-)
Are you with me?!?!
