I've lived in Portland for 4 years and I've loved every minute of it. And yes, I’ve compared PDX to the rest of the world.
I've traveled to some places in the US (Chicago, Boston, D.C., Denver, most of the west coast and southwest), but saved a few to explore N.Y., US Virgin Island, and Puerto Rico. I’ve enjoyed Mexico’s east coast and Guadalajara, and Japan as well; so I have a lot of international travel to look forward to. I hope you are interested in seeing the rest of the world.

Amateur international promoter of Portland’s awesomeness
Kick ass relationship with a woman who is honest with herself. I am honest and looking for someone who has interest in discovering new things. I like learning and working on hobbies. I am starting salsa lessons; hope to get rid of my second left foot soon.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I think first dates are great! I love getting to know other people and learn new things. I prefer something very casual like coffee or wine.
Movies and dinner kind of get in the way of dialogue. Why not save those things for date number two!?
