Just looking to get out every now and then and check out festivals, museums, and local sites!
I'm a kind, well-educated, laid back guy looking for a good, kind, laid back, smart woman. I like to share my time with women that have their own lives but like to spend time with a decent fellow that is not out to change 'em, or to be changed. I am very good at showing people around that are not from here, especially to the Baltimore inner harbor and DC.
Originally, I'm from Baltimore, but have worked on the Hill for the past twenty years and love my job and the people I work with. I live within walking distance of the main University of Maryland campus, and went to school, and worked there for many years. I pass through Virginia and Pennsylvania a lot and drive to Tennessee often to visit family in the Knoxville area.
I prefer kind, bright, non-judgmental women that go with the flow and are open to new experiences. I tend to be attracted to grad students, professionals, or offbeat types, but I'm attracted to all kinds of smart women in between in the DC / MD / VA metro area as well as Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, and Tennessee.
Some oddball things about me: I have worked in a shoe factory, the Smithsonian, Treasury Department, seven libraries, and was a country dj for several years; I've been to well over 20 countries and am starting to plan my next trip (possibly Iceland or Costa Rica.)
And to be up front, I do tend to notice the fluffy ladies the most.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
My first dates tend to be at really geeky places like museums, bookstores, or Renaissance festivals. Sometimes they've been walking around Baltimore Harborplace, Fell's Point, DC or Annapolis, roaming around and taking in the sights. The boardwalk at Ocean City is where I often take friends from out of town, and hiking in the Catoctin Mountains or Great Falls is also fair game.
Just hanging out, enjoying someone's company and getting to learn about them - it's all good. But even walking around a mall or sharing coffee is just fine and dandy too! There's no pressure. If nothing else, remember: you can never have too many friends!
