My self-summary
-Like many I'm not a fan of the online universe for dating, but since you've not shown up at my coffee shop or grocery store, here I am.

I live in a world that places a premium on bullet points and graphs, so here’s a few things that might reveal a bit about me. If any of them pique your interest, please do drop me a note.

-I believe that a great partnership involves a great connection - not whether we like the same food or the same movies.
-I think that the foundation of a great relationship is the ability to communicate – and I’m grown up enough to not be afraid of fighting for the right relationship, and would hope that you are too.
- I'm as liberated as they come, but believe there's something incredibly sexy about a man who holds doors and pulls out chairs. And yes, I do believe in reciprocity.
-I'm sassy. I tried shy, I tried demur. I failed miserably at both.
-I’m ruled by logic, but all too frequently my emotions get the best of me.
-I’m a strong personality… the type who can direct a meeting or a social event with ease, but also value quiet 1-1 time.
-I tend to like men who are a few standard deviations above the norm. That doesn't mean you're necessarily edgy or a freak, but chances are there something engaging about you that differentiates you from the pack.
-I love hearing different points of view, and love intelligent debate. If we all agreed about everything, the world would be a pretty boring place.
-I'm slightly addicted to exercise and decompress by hitting the gym or heading to the hills.
-How people treat others speaks volumes about their inner character.
-I love exploration. New places, new people, new ideas. The worlds a big place and I keep wanting to know and see more of it. (and I have 3 passports to prove it.. )
What I’m doing with my life
trying to balance today and tomorrow. Trying to kick my sugar habit.
I’m really good at
Deep thoughts.. and no, I'm not Jack Handy
Making people feel at ease
Finding answers to the most random things.
Putting together the perfect evening.
The first things people usually notice about me
I try to be kind to everyone... and most people view me as trusthworthy.
I'm sassy.. I like to stir the pot.
If I'm in a skirt, I've got pretty darn good legs.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Do Vanity Fair, HBR, and the Economist count? I'm a bit embarrassed to admit that it's been a while since I've read anything cover to cover. White papers, yes. Online domestic and international news - absolutely. A good old fashioned book - not so much.

I love cheesy action adventure movies, and listen to a broad spectrum of music. I think reality shows equate to watching human behavior in its lowest form.

I love experimenting with food and am game to try almost anything (but I won't force you to).
Six things I could never do without
#1 by far is my community of great people
(the next 5 are in non-sequential order)
Good health (not sure if this counts).
Hot showers/clean drinking water (hey, they're both water, so I'm counting them as 1!)
Good tea
Running/hiking shoes
A great red wine
All things Cadbury
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-How to travel to more exotic locations, how to be a better person, how to give back more.
-How to interpret situations on OKC where men say they're interested in women over 40 but also say they want kids.
- If people who 'fudge' their age online find that approach to be successful.
- If Aaron Rodgers will be the #1 quarterback for the season.
On a typical Friday night I am
-good bar, good friends, great wine.
-somewhere outdoors decompressing.
-vegging on my sofa.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think that I always expected to have a small brood of children, but somehow that good fortune never came my way. I'm ok with that, and wonder if I'd be good at helping someone else with theirs.
You should message me if
-You realize that what's written is just a starting point.
-Anything I've written resonates.
The two of us
