Hello there. I am a slightly nerdy type who likes NPR, PBS, reading (although I converted to an ereader and I love it) balancing a job and school part time. I try to go to the gym a few itmes a week although I think I need to be more consistent. I have a dog and three cats so do not think I will be winning any housekeeper of the year awards. I enjoy cooking and like to take cooking classes once in a while to learn something new, not going to claim I am a culinary star. I enjoy going to Shelby Farms or somewhere similar for a walk/moderate hike in the nice weather. Not much for sports although I am a seious hockey fan. I am neither the "life of the party" type nor am pathologically shy. I am reasonably well informed but do not dive into discussions about religion or politics until I know you better. I do lean liberal so if Rush Limbaugh is your hero we probably will not want to hang out. What are my relationship expectations? Well, that is hard to say.... perhaps in that middle ground between hooking up and gotta find my soulmate today. Ideally I would like to find a regular/exclusive male human to date, laugh with, make cranky comments about the world with, share a great meal or patio****ail with and just so what progresses. It would be an added bonus if you did not object to the occassional artsy/museum/theatre outing. It think what makes me unique is something you have to discover for yourself.
