I am most attracted to curious, nice, intelligent and witty men.
To me, life is about (in no particular order): trust, open mindedness, curiosity, hiking, playfulness, honesty, constructive communication, building tasty dinners, skiing, photographing mountain tops, walking and sitting along the river and enjoying the minutiae together. Sometimes the most inconsequential experiences can offer the greatest rewards. I'm a scientist and can be quite academic at times; but I've learned to exercise my right brain, too. I am looking for someone who enjoys meaningful intelligent conversations; someone who can think outside the box. I have been known to stay up until the wee hours scratching obscure beatnik poetry or painting colorful abstracts.
There is really only so much that you can say in this profile to make it authentic. It's amazing how people enter a bunch of rhetoric into this box. I think I like a lot of the *same things* as everyone else, but I don't think I'm like everyone else. I love the outdoors and I'm looking for someone who wants to be outside. I have loads of intuition that has taught me to make decisions based on my gut reaction; I will follow that.
I'm looking to meet one special guy. If the chemistry and connection is right and we both like each other then ideally we'd build a relationship together. If you're interested in casual dating, nothing serious or hook-up or if you'd like to date more than one woman, then you and I won't be a match; there'll be many others suited to those conditions.
The roads are clear and soon the prairie will turn a shade of green ... "I drove for two hours, south and east in the wide sky. The road was quiet, the farmers, they waved. I was a stranger in their land, yet feel like I've come home when I visit the fields. There's a decrepit abandoned homestead, wind blew through its senescent walls. An owl sat sentry in the centered window on the second floor. I wandered through the tall yellowed grasses and my boot went bing on something shiny. A glockenspiel with rusted silver keys askew reflected through the low angle sunny winter day. That's an unexpected symbol of childhood. Wait, were those ponies on the other side of the fence?"
If my profile piques your interest, please send me a message and let me know what you like. Also, please include a photo.

I'd be up for pretty much anything: loitering along 17th avenue, people watching in Eau Claire, a coffee at Higher Ground, sharing some strolling urban photography, enjoying spicy pho, a walk along the Bow. If you have other interesting options, I'd love to hear them!
