Let me get something out of the way real quick. I don't spend much time on here anymore, that's mainly because between being in a non-committed open relationship, way to busy with work, and focusing on getting in shape has kept me off of here. However, if you would like to chat, don't let that stop you. I always enjoy chatting and making new friends (and if it leads to more, that's a bonus...)
I love traveling, taking the road less traveled, and meeting people of all cultures and walks of life. I like trying new mom and pop restaurants, and will go out of my way to not eat "chain food." I've lived in Latin American and am fully fluent in Spanish. I am a nerd, and proud of it. You and I will get along if you, like me, learned the meaning of the cliche, "you cannot truly love someone unless you first learn to love yourself" the hard way. I'm interested in both dating and meeting new people in general. However, I'm not into pen pals; I prefer to turn off the computer, get out, meet people and do things.
I need to be able to have an intelligent conversation with whom I'm seeing. That is a must; I can't do the bimbo thing. I think it's important to care about religion, politics, etc. but not take those topics too seriously as arguing about them goes nowhere. I am honest to a fault and I expect the same of the people I care about.
One of my main priorities is getting back into shape. I let life kick me around for a couple of years. I learned from it, and am on my feet now. I am determined to live a healthy life from this point forward. I need some gym time every day, and I stick to a healthy diet. I say that as if you want to do a workout date, that is a major plus!
