My self-summary
I'm driven, goal-oriented, stable, and I'm a pretty hardcore INTJ. I know where I want to be in 20-30 years, but I'm not at all obsessive about the details. I work in international development, a career I've really enjoyed since I moved to DC. Work has taken me to a lot of places around the world - ask me about it sometime!

A person much wiser than me said there are basically two types of people who date: testers and investors. Testers date multiple people simultaneously and pick the one they like best. Investors focus on one person at a time until it either works out or it doesn't. I tend to be an investor and would value that quality in other people.

Best friend says: I am discerning, particular, and loyal. That's good enough for me.
What I’m doing with my life
I've been in DC for over five years now, love the city and the life I'm building here. I've been really fortunate to have lived abroad for a few years, and I get to travel for work.

I'm studying Arabic and could always use someone to practice the Levantine dialect with!
I’m really good at
Communication. This is very important to me and I think lack of it is often the single biggest reason relationships can fail. I want to be the guy you can feel comfortable being yourself around: no judgment, no mixed messages, no ambiguity. If I'm interested in someone, I tell him. I'm really impressed with guys who actively try to create a space for honest and open communication in their relationships.

Board games and computer games. If you like the really nerdy ones, especially Diplomacy, message me. I enjoy all kinds of strategy games - great way to get to know me better. Bonus points if you play Guild Wars 2.

You should message me if
You think virtue, honor, integrity, and decorum are not relics of a barbarous past.

Or, you can help me lighten up my profile... it's way too serious!
