Am fairly good natured with a bit of a sarcastic streak. Raised by women and still surrounded by four generations of them so I have a bit of a protective and chivalrous side. Should offset my stubborn side and hopefully the few and far between bonehead moments.
Enjoy keeping active and can be a bit competitive too. Would prefer to be doing something than sit in a bar all night. I'm all for enjoying drinks and stimulating conversation, but don't think that happens often in that setting. I do like to dance, but 'clubbin' it isn't really my thing. Now if I'm going with a good dance partner, that's different. But not from a singles scene point of view.
Could easily ramble a bit more, but that's what emails and good conversation is for.
-Anything tech related. Bit of a tech geek.
-Can pretty much go out and run 10 miles on no training. Pretty much what I do with the Broad St Run every year. My legs pay for it the next day though.
-Procrastination: I'll tell you about it later.

Have a somewhat healthy and active lifestyle.
Will actually join me for a jog, ride, hike and so forth.
Would like to introduce me to some of your interests.
Your weekends don't revolve around Rittenhouse Square & Old City
Have original thoughts in your head and can engage in healthy conversation.
Not many "demands" so to speak. Just seeking good chemistry and fun and see where it all leads.
