Aside from all the amazing restaurants out here and the occasional adventure, I'm not really the show me around the city type, and I'm looking for someone who would rather go home and cuddle up to Netflix after going out to dinner than go out to a bar or club or the like (not talking first date here, just in general). I'm not opposed to going out from time to time, but I work 60+ hours a week right now as we are ramping things up, with too few days off and I value my downtime immensely. In 6 months or so when the project I'm working on is complete, I'll have the easiest job on the planet so it'll be a different story. For now, I gotta take it easy. So in my downtime I play guitar, a little PS4, and like to take walks or hangout at the bluffs. Just little things that let me unwind and decompress from a crazy work week.
