I prefer getting to know people through conversations rather than profiles and quick emails. I like interesting, intelligent fun people who enjoy life.
I'm a good cook, a decent artist when I feel like it, and a terrible bowler. I can be shy at first but open up fairly quickly and love hanging out with people and having fun.
I like spending my time camping, hiking, bicycling, doing yard work, playing in the park or going for walks. I also like sailing, watching the stars, cooking, wine tasting, reading books, going to the movies and hanging out with friends. This is of course when I am not building Lego towers, reading books, watching TV and playing dress-up.
According to my friends I have a somewhat warped sense of humor and should try to curb it. I don't though.
I am trying to be less busy so I have more time to spend with people having fun. There is just so much to do in Seattle.
I spend my working hours surrounded by small children - it makes me feel really tall - and I get summer vacations. Two of the many reasons I love my job.

-You enjoy good wine.
-You enjoy adventures.
-You want to get to know more about me.
-You believe that having one or more significant other in your life is a wonderful thing, but you are fully complete without them.
