I grew up all over the place, went to college in the Northeast, and have been in the Bay Area ever since. My core values are traditional, yet I’m liberal and progressive. You'll find I'm very real from the start and am sweet, honest, loving, and down to earth.
I love being around people – watching them, interacting with them, trying to understand them. More than one friend has told me that my inferences about others can be both humorous and strangely accurate. I love discovering places – not just for travel, which I adore, but also a new hiking spot, bar/lounge, farmers’ market, ethnic restaurant. Last year, I finished grad school in a medical research-related field and am doing research in the area of drug addiction.
I’m online dating because in real life, I get asked out mostly by guys who are several years younger than I am and who want kids. Not that I’m complaining, it’s been fun, but I’m ultimately looking for a relationship that could end up being more. If only I could find where all you cute 40s guys hang out!
So, about you, my future boyfriend… you are a kind, non-materialistic, progressive guy who wants an equal partner and committed relationship that does not involve kids. You also have a mind of your own and a great big brain. If this resonates with you at all and you think I’m cute, or hey, maybe even a little sexy, it would be great to hear from you.
