Moved to the Bay Area from Seattle. Used to be a professional chef in French cuisine and fine-dining, but now switching careers. I am currently working towards getting a Masters degree, and eventually a Doctorate to become a therapist.
Most people who meet me would never guess I like the geeky, nerdy types, but I do. I am looking for someone who can offer me intellectual stimulation. I prefer brains over brawn any day. I find nothing sexier than intellect and confidence (but NOT arrogant), a man who is comfortable in his own skin and doesn't try too hard to impress me. Someone who isn't afraid to act goofy and silly with me, someone with a good sense of humor. ??
Love the outdoors. Love hiking, rock-climbing, anything outdoorsy. Love music festivals and concerts, many genres of music, play piano, draw, paint, the arts. Also currently learning the art of glass blowing, inspired by an artist in Seattle by the name of Dale Chihuly. Have traveled to over 16 countries around the world, so looking for a man who is also well-traveled and has worldly knowledge, or at least appreciates culture.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Conversation. Listening. Honesty. And definitely physical attraction and sizzle is important on a first date.
