I have a very healthy dose of geek in me. I enjoy my geek lifestyle and will require someone who is geek friendly. I also have a social side and love a good gathering but if you are looking for the snappy dressing life of the party then you can stop reading now. Note that I did say geek and not nerd. Subtle but important distinction. You will never find me dressed like a Klingon not that I find anything wrong with dressing like a Klingon mind you.
I love to travel. I have had extra pages added to my passport twice mostly traveling around Asia while I spent two years living in China. I have also been all over America and most of Europe. Weekend trips to Portland, Vancouver or the San Francisco Bay Area are great. Love to do that once a month or so. I also love longer vacations 2-3 times a year. For my next big vacation I want to either go back to Europe or go to Australia. You will need to enjoy travel almost as much as I do. If you love it more that is ok as well. I don't spend much time on beaches although I do love beaches. I get bored quickly lying in a beach chair. I would rather go diving or snorkeling.
I am a fan of live theater. Once upon a time I had season tickets to the Seattle Rep but have been having trouble finding someone to go with me lately. Definitely message me if you want to go to a show!
I live in Wallingford and I like it here. City life has been good to me. I've spent time in suburbia as well and that has its value but right now I enjoy the city. I don't see ever moving back to the suburbs but things do change so I keep an open mind.
I have a grown son almost finished with law school at UW and a 2 year old granddaughter. Very proud of my family.
I am looking for someone around my age that lives in or around the Seattle area. I do not have a specific radius in mind but I am not interested in a relationship that is mainly long distance. Otherwise I am open to meeting all types. I am not into long email exchanges. Let's get together and see what happens! If you like my profile let me buy you dinner and we can figure out in 30 minutes what we would never know in email. I am always happy to get your email though so please feel free to make first contact.
***IMPORTANT NOTE*** I am not looking for games or anything casual. I am looking to begin a serious, long term, monogamous relationship with someone who is looking for the same and has the time and energy for it. If you think that you may not have time in your life for a relationship that involves seeing each other at least twice a week then please pass me by.
I have too many favorite movies to mention. Casablanca is perhaps the greatest film every made but I do not watch it so often anymore.
Same with restaurants. I eat at 74th St Ale House a lot because it is close to my house. I also love Blueacre Seafood, El Gaucho (the one in Seattle), Gorgeous George's, The Stumbling Goat and Assagio. That is a sampler of my favorites anyway. The Tom Douglas places are also nice. Too many!
My phone (really counts as a computer too and I very seldom actually talk on it)
