I've spent most of life so far getting pretty much set career-wise, financially, and making great friends. I want a partner to join me on adventures and help me focus on enjoying the rest of life.
I'm somebody who loves learning about all sorts of things and rarely refuses to try anything once. I've dated enough women to know what I like in a partner. Does this describe you: While you do something you care about, you are certainly not a workaholic. You’re love to talk, realistic enough to understand that we won’t always agree (nor is that something you want), and not the type to get bitter when I seem intransigent. Also -- this is key -- you know how to relax and can give me space in my hammock sometimes.
Also, you're probably a little snarky. Maybe you're more than a little snarky. Actually, ideally, you would be Carrie Brownstein in Portlandia.
Non-Work: Reading. Fixing up my house. Trying out hikes in my neighborhood. Happy hours with friends as often as possible. And looking for a good French conversation group -- parles-tu?
I'd usually rather watch a movie at home with a thematically appropriate cocktail rather than go to the theatre. According to Netflix, I like movies that are "gritty, foreign, and/or starring Billy Bob Thorton." Anyway, I promise I'm not a creep.
For music, I usually just subscribe to my friends' Spotify playlists. I like stuff that's all over the map. Modest Mouse, Britney (I heard "Perfume" for the first time last week, she's awesome), and Passion Pit are the latest I put into Spotify.
I eat out all over Boulder and I'm a good enough tipper that my drinks are often free. Via Perla's my current favorite, The Kitchen is where I go most. I don't understand why the Suns are popular or how anyone can tolerate the indoor part of the Pub. I would love it if you would join me in mourning the loss of the bar at The Outlook hotel (or even if you just remember it).
I am especially intrigued if you have access to a tandem bicycle.
You live in Boulder.
