I am passionate about travel, learning about the world and enjoying all it has to offer! Just booked a trip to Marrakech, can't wait! It is one of my favorite destinations and planning to celebrate my birthday with friends and family there.
I am a southern California native, went to grad school back East - International Political Economy, lived in Paris for a decade and now in Silicon Valley. I have been very fortunate. I believe true happiness comes from trying your best, knowing your capabilities, being content with who you are and most importantly sharing the adventure with that special someone. The ability to learn, grow and challenge oneself and stimulate the same kind of passion within your partner makes the optimal relationship and a life lived to the fullest.
A first date for me is about getting to know someone. That does not mean you have to know everything; there is no substitute for time concerning certain topics! However, it does mean that there is a moment during the date when your true self is revealed; it is in that moment you know instinctively if this is someone you want to spend more time with or not. I find a casual setting, some good old fashion flirting and a glass of wine are the key ingredients to accomplish the task at hand!!
