I love traveling and exploring new places and people. I would like a partner who is comfortable traveling the way I do without a strict agenda or itinerary... I am adventurous and often follow the path of curiosity or a hunch rather than a tour guide. I like to go camping and hiking but I like room service and pampering too.
I like to cycle and am looking forward to exploring more of Austin on 2 wheels, something I haven't been doing enough of since I returned 3 years back... Perhaps you can show me around. I love exercising out doors on a beach, in the water, in the mountains or anywhere that is beautiful. I like snorkeling and have had the privilege to do so in a hand full of beautiful places. I just got scuba certified in January of last year and would love a diving partner!
I can be a social butterfly, but I prefer more intimate gatherings. I love music and like to go see live shows often. Someday I want to learn to play guitar. I enjoy philosophical conversation over a good meal and a glass of wine. I like to dance and be silly when no one is looking and sometimes when they are (wink). I can be a tom boy, but I am also a girly sometimes flirty girl... sometimes I am both at the same time. I am looking for a true partner in every sense of the word - my best friend and lover. I am not in any rush, so if you would like to take the time to get to know me and see what happens, then maybe we should talk.
In slightly more detail.... I love movies. I really like pop culture documentaries and if a fictional movie is based on true events... well, I'm a sucker for those as well! I love suspense, drama and intelligent comedy. A few films I am particularly fond of are The Usual Suspects, I Heart Huckabees, When Harry Met Sally, Hands on a Hard Body (it's a doc on the truck contest outside of Houston), The Fog of War... As for TV... I don't have a lot of time for it, but time permitting, I do enjoy 60 Minutes, The Daily Show, Bill Maher, The Walking Dead and True Detective. Modern Family has become a great late night distraction for me when I cannot sleep!!
I love music of almost all genres. I used to work in that biz, so I have seen/ heard/ enjoyed and been tortured a few times by all sorts of live music... A sample of what's been played in my cd player recently... Beatles, Pixies, The Eels, Wilco, Kings of Leon, Spoon, Ben Harper, M. Ward, Lucinda Williams, Van Morrison, The Kinks, Johnny Cash, Willie Dixon, Bob Marley, Jack White, Wanda Jackson....
Books - I don't have a lot of time to read, but I can recommend a really great read that is not so well known called "Obabakok". It is one of the few basque books out there that has been translated - a writer recommended it to me and I have found that writers always recommend good books!
I love food! I like ethnic, fresh, authentic food... and usually with a nice glass of wine at dinner time. I love cooking and conversing with a good friend, but eating out is good too!
Everything. I love to ponder ideas and the how, what and why of the ways of the world.
Lately I am thinking about a couple of new projects I am developing and how I need to create more time for them.
You have at least 2 photos. I do not respond to anyone without photos. If you have access to technology to post a profile online, then you have access to a camera. And if you aren't posting photos because you want your identity to be kept secret, then I'm not interested. Good luck.
You are not a right wing republican.
And most importantly, if you are interesting, fun, find me interesting and are interested in the world around you.
