I'm an explorer of life who thinks this is all rather absurd. But I'll enjoy the beauty I find everywhere.
I enjoy music, cycling, walking long distances, fun-but-serious discourse and discussing politics. I also love camping and hiking but this city isn't very welcoming to that (Rock Creek Park is a slight panacea).
I am both intellectually and physically active, the former is a requirement in a partner. The latter is a nice bonus but not a requirement.
Getting way too into new hobbies at the expense of the things I ought to be working on.

How to improve the quality of my next snack...
Exploring the city on foot or by bike, trying to find secrets (back alleys, small music scenes, great cycling hills).
Listening to music at home or out.
If you find the best conversations are when you don't agree at the end--but both sides are clearer.
