Just relocated here from the Silicon Valley area a few months ago. Spent 10 years in Seattle after college in the SF bay area. Originally from CT but grew up in Southern CA. I still travel to Seattle a lot and have a house there. But I am where I want to be. I am enjoying DC but would love to share my sense of adventure and exploration with someone! I would love to meet with a a guy with a common love of tech, art/books, live music, travel, and the outdoors too. My career is a huge part of my life, but it shouldn't be the "only" thing. :) Any excuse for me to take out the convertible somewhere beautiful or new is a good one!
My music tastes vary with my mood -- I'm a sucker for the 80s (especially alternative, punk, new wave, etc.). Love jazz and live guitar music. I have a special fondness for swing and big band era music as well. I am drawn to classic literature but drift to modern and experimental too. Poetry speaks to my heart and soul. I will always stop to gaze at flowers or the leaves changing color. And snow still makes me giggle.
A guy with honor and integrity, a great smile, wit to spare, a nerd streak, and a fiery adventurous spirit will make me melt. Intelligence, honesty, and warmth are precious. I've been told that I am a very passionate person - protective and affectionate. I have an appreciation for life, loyalty, and my loved ones that goes beyond bounds. I am a self-confessed romantic, and I want to share these things with someone special. No more games, please!
I'd like to cherish someone and to be cherished in return. I know, it's the romantic thing again... Ultimately, I'd like to find a kindred spirit who can share the wonders with me - the day to day ones and the future to come.
FYI -- I find glasses very sexy. (Goatees, not so much.)
Espresso, tea, or wine? I'm learning about new places and things here in the area and would love for you to suggest a good place. We could chat a bit and get to know each other. Being friends is great, but so is chemistry...
