Just like my “dual citizenship” of country and city, I’m a study in contrasts in many other ways. I have a Fine Arts degree but mostly program for a living. I can be a homebody but I love checking out new restaurants. Foodie with me? Travel is another passion of mine. I’m thinking Mexico. Or New Zealand. Or maybe Zion National Park. Likely all of the above.
I'm a nerd wrapped in fun witty banter and topped with sarcasm. I'm a teaser and an instigator, but it's all in good fun. I'm learning to cook and do handstands. Though not at the same time. My crab cakes are drool worthy and my chef’s torch is almost exclusively used to make s’mores. So should we meet, I'm sure we'll have plenty to talk about. Don't worry if you're nervous - I'll just tease you.
In an effort to dispel rumors to the contrary, gentlemen still exist. I will open the door for you. But I won't let you win at darts. Or bowling. Or billiards. Not that I'm particularly gifted at any of those. I just enjoy fun competition. And witty conversation. Just don't tell me what happens next on The Amerikans. I want to be surprised. But I do however want to hear your favorite goofy joke! (Not-so-secret sense of humor test…)
I'm not looking for a "trophy girlfriend". I am looking for a real woman with personality. I want someone with whom I have shared interests but also has interests of her own. I'm looking for a woman who is loyal, giving, and adaptable. These are must haves. I'm looking for someone relationship worthy. It's a process. Quality, not quantity.
Interested? You know what to do!
