I'm an outdoorsy nerd looking for the same. I'm generally cheerful person and I like to look on the bright side.
I grew up as the child of a diplomat. My father is American of Scottish decent and my mother is Croatian. I live overseas until my father retired. English is my third language (Serbo-Croatian is my first and Polish was my second).
I enjoy hiking, kayaking, video games, cooking, working out, lively but not personal political debate, opera, Dungeon and Dragons (and other tabletop RPGs) and just cuddling on the couch and watching TV. I go to the renfair multiple times a year, in costume. I own a fairly large number of strategy board and card games. I love to travel and I want to see as much of the world as possible before I die.
I don't need someone who shares all my interests, but I do need someone who won't make fun of me for it.
Ultimately, I'm looking for someone to grow old with, but for the time being I'm planning on dating around for a while.
Lately, I've been watching Orphan Black, Game of Throne, and Sherlock. All of these shows are brilliant. I'll also happily watch any of the DC animated movies and I was really sad when Young Justice was canceled (don't judge). There's also a particular early 90s Canadian vampire TV show that I love. Bonus points if you can name it.
Music wise, I have a thing for Trip Hop. Mezzanine by Massive Attack is probably my favorite album. I listen to all kinds of things, though and I'll happily give most music a try.
As for food, there's very few things I won't eat. I don't like melon, cheesecake, or octopus. I won't eat anything's brains, eye, or genitals unless it's something small enough that you eat the whole creature like a tiny fish, or a fried cricket. I will totally eat bugs. I'm pretty adventurous with food, and I'd like to date someone who is as well.
