My self-summary
I am a laid back and thoughtful person. I enjoy deep conversation and thought, but not looking for either of us to get caught up in our own heads. That's no fun. Political views? Yep got 'em. Some liberal, some conservative, that's the way it goes.

I've online dated on and off over the years (mostly off). While I'm not entirely convinced by it, I keep an open mind. If you reach out to me, let's try to avoid the "checklists" in our heads. You know, the subconscious matching against the profile you read here. Vibe is vibe. If it's really a concern of yours that I haven't read enough Murakami books, then we're not looking for the same thing. We'll know it if it's there. I'm not looking for an in-between, sitting on the fence, mulling it over, not straightforward scenario. Let's be sincere, whether it's short or long-term.

I like sporting events, I would say I am avid, but not rabid. I enjoy biking, hiking, playing tennis and the like. I enjoy traveling, and look to continue exploring new places and spaces in life.

I enjoy a homecooked meal as much as I enjoy going out to eat. I believe every great neighborhood needs a diner, just to sit, relax and appreciate life in its basic form. I like cities and sitting on a lake.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an urban planner. I currently work for an elected official.
The first things people usually notice about me
I guess this is physical, so I would definitely say my eyes for one. I also have a strong, deep, yet laid back voice. And when I am wearing shorts, my legs.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
These kind of matches are interesting, but not make-or-break for me. Heck, it's rare I overlap!

Books: Haruki Murakami is my favorite author if that is any insight, read a lot of urban-related stuff.

Music: Metal, Rock, Old-School Rap, Ambient/Earthy.

Food: Easier to tell you what I don't like, which is most (not all) seafood, beans (except edamame and string beans), eggplant, spinach and mushrooms. Other than that I have tried and enjoyed a lot. If its well-prepared, I dig it.
Six things I could never do without
My mom's roast beef
A good massage
A good roof over my head :-)
On a typical Friday night I am
Grabbing dinner and a drink with friend(s), or relaxing at home.
You should message me if
You get it. You enjoy hanging out, whether we are bantering back and forth at 100 mph or sitting in silence appreciating the moment or around a group of friends. I like romance and the secure feeling that a trusting relationship brings, but I also love wonder. A little gingerbread in life never hurt anyone. Open-mindedness with an understanding that life does have some boundaries is important. I'm not uptight when it comes to intimacy, but certain things gotta feel right. Looking to have a smile on my face as much as I can, and when I don't, to be with someone that is understanding enough and interested in getting me back to that point as much as I am in getting her to that point.
The two of us
