First off, I would appreciate only serious inquiries. If you are looking for a short-term situation than don't bother to read further.
My hobbies are varied but I enoy traveling, reading, dancing, and going to the beach in the summer. My goals are to write books for kids someday but for now my goal is to stay employed in academia until a writing job happens. I see myself as someone who will return to college one day to obtain a Masters degree.
I am unique in that no one else is quite like me. I don't follow trends or try to be trendy but just be myself. I am rather comfortable in my skin but know that improvements are always needed to try and grow as a person.
Musically, I enjoy a lot of everything especially jazz, r&b, soul, classic rock, and yes, disco!
For me, a first date should be either at a cafe for coffee/tea or lunch. It should be mellow and not too pressure-filled. If all goes well, then perhaps drinks for a 2nd date.
