Life is short and I value experiences and good company, whether it's trying a new restaurant in the neighborhood or traveling to far off places. I try to take in local culture, enjoying festivals, food trucks, museums and block parties all the same. I'm also happy staying in- movies, cooking, card games, all good, and I like to turn the pages on my Kindle if I have time alone.I don't understand why everyone on here seems to be a rock climber or cross-fitter (I'm neither of these personas), but I think it's important in a match to have independent interests and different speeds as well.
I have no delusions about what I want in life. I'm empathetic and patient but I am not shy about being direct. I work on improving myself, which means acknowledging and addressing weaknesses, but I don't take life too seriously and I'm always optimistic. I love equally laughing til I'm lightheaded and serious reflections about the world. I'm employed professionally (technology marketing), I work hard, I love what I do, and I pay my bills. Oh, and I smell nice.
I like women that enjoy sharing stories, have an open mind, and can appreciate small things but aren't afraid to get a little out of the comfort zone in their lives.
