I'm 41 years old and a professional in high tech. I am an avid cyclist and a sometimes reluctant runner and triathlete. I enjoy live music...most kinds, whether it's jazz, symphony, or rock. And yes, I genuinely enjoy opera....I tend to go 2-3 times a year.
One of my favorite ways to spend an evening is to share a bottle of wine while cooking for my friends....I try to put on a great show and we all get to participate in the finish. Ask me about my skirt steak saltimboca (or if you dare, call my bluff and ask me to make it for you).
I've got two boys....they're fantastic and add such richness to my life. We love to goof off with each other, listen to music, and go play sports (lots of baseball and soccer).
Are you active, love to eat good food (preferably mine) and drink wine, enjoy music, and up for a good adventure? Perfect! I think it is important for each in a relationship to have their own individual interests, but enough overlapping interests to share with each other...what a great way to help build a strong and lasting relationship....I'm sure you probably think so as well.
Now back to that chivalry thing....it's true. I'm a man with manners. Your door will be opened, you will be the first through the door, and I will always help you with your coat. As for the witty...only you can be the judge.
Music, I'm all over the map.....rock, jazz, opera, latin, classical, 80's. Really like it when its live.
I read Wall Street Journal and a bunch of technical blogs, but when it comes to literature, I've recently read The Whiskey Rebels and The Last Dickens and other historical fiction. I also really enjoy reading Hemingway and Steinbeck.
