I love cooking. I love eating. I love wine (mostly reds). I am a bit of a news junkie, and I concern myself with trying to find out something about eveything. I am also a bit of a Sci Fi fan - but I've only gone to one Star Trek convention, so I am practically normal. I usually brake for anything related to geeky topics or anything else no matter how far beyond my intellectual capabilities it may be. Also, I find comfort in silence - I thought to mention this because it seems that this quality is a little different.
Other random things about myself: I am passionate about being outdoors (backpacking, hiking, camping, snowshoeing), I like to travel and it used to be my defining quality, however, as I am sure you have found out as well that the older you get, the more responsibilites you have. I am also passionate about cheese (one full shelf in my refridgerator only has cheese), Coke Zero, driving, and trying (almost) anything at least once or twice in my life. I enjoy being fit, and I work out at least 3 to 4 times a week. My level of humor is a bit more on the sarcastic side (almost to a fault). I love stupid/cheesy stuff. Also, I am going to mention that I am an only child from a single parent household, and I am generally pretty independent. However, the older I get, the larger the void is feeling... thus here I am trying to give this an honest shot.
First date or meeting can be anything, preferably fun or active.
Please note I am looking for educated, traveled, fit, active men with whom I enjoy similar activities and who can hold intelligent, worldly and enlightened discussions. No prison tatts please. And although I am flattered, I am not interested in texting relationships.
