I like bike rides, hikes, scuba diving, and I try to visit one new exotic place each year. Last year, Sayulita, Mexico. The year before, Slovenia. The year before that, Costa Rica.
I've dated enough (both long term and short term) to know that solid relationships take a lot of effort. It really all boils down to great communication and being open. There's nothing better than being with someone you don't have to censor yourself around.
I'm a bit of a misfit for DC perhaps - I prefer open spaces, I'm not all that into politics, and unrepentant career strivers bug the hell out of me. But I have a lot of good friends here and enjoy the amenities of the city. I'm sure someday I'll move to someplace like Colorado, New Mexico, or maybe even Old Mexico.
I can take a little while to warm up to people, but when I do, watch out...I've got a pretty absurd sense of humor. It's all about the laughs, really.
I am sleepy, snarky, and hungry
Also...spending a lot of time with my friends...dinner parties, out for dinner, occasional bars, golfing once a summer maybe just for laughs...I keep a few good friends real close.
