I am fit, smart, and eclectic. I have lived in New York, Illinois, Florida, and LA (last 10 years) so I have East Coast sensibility, Midwestern values, and Southern manners. Just moved to Portland in October 2014 after a few years of living in LA. I have a very good sense of smart humor. I find politics, art, science and health all interesting subjects. I enjoy going to plays, museums, other cultural events. I've recently rediscovered classical music and I've started playing French Horn in a local small symphony one night a week (your night or two out with the girls!). I'm good for an occasional opera. My opinions on world issues usually have some reading or thought behind them, and I appreciate that in a partner as well. My favorite ways to get in a work out are strength-training, tennis, basketball, blading, and hiking. I am looking for someone with whom I have that common bond of physical, emotional, and intellectual compatibility.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Assuming that we'd already met for coffee or a drink and this is really a 2nd date, some time at a museum, concert, or play would be my suggestions. A walk in the park with my dog would be great too. There should be always be balance in a relationship where you are focused as much on each other as something you both enjoy.
