Did I forget anything? Probably, so if you've enjoyed reading this much you should stay posted. Anyway, for my purposes here, I also want to make known up front what I'm looking for - a long-term partner. I'm not in a rush; I know these things don't happen overnight and want to enjoy exploring the possibilities that are out there, but that's the ultimate objective and I want to meet people who are okay with the idea of long-term, monogamous commitment with the right person. Despite being very practical and pragmatic about the little things in life, I'm very idealistic and I have a very sweet and romantic view of love. I want to find someone that I'm crazy about and refuse to settle for someone who isn't crazy about me. Also, I don't have sex outside of committed, monogamous relationships (marriage certainly not required, more like a stable dating relationship of a few months), because sex is not that enjoyable to me without a deeper knowledge and appreciation for the person I'm with. I'm looking for someone who respects this and preferably who shares this view.
I am sweet, sarcastic, and wistful.

Pen and Paper (List Making Materials)
- You know a place in the Santa Cruz Mountains that you think I haven't been to
- You want to take me on a road biking outing (I have a fairly new road bike that is in dire need of some adventures)
- You want to go on a ~30 mile running adventure (ideas Woodside/Portola Valley to the Ocean, Skyline to the Sea Trail, Ohlone Trail in the East Bay - note I don't make any claims about being particularly fast and you don't have to be fast either, just really stubborn)
- You think we would be a good match
