I honestly have a great life that I really love, but I’m at a place where I’m ready to try something new and add someone special to the mix with whom I can laugh and have a great time. My two kids are amazing and bring me so much joy. I love my job working with graduate students and preparing them for the next stage of their career, and I love being able to sneak away for a weekend to places like Capitola or Half Moon Bay. My taste in music includes everything from classic rock to Etta James. The best way to experience any music is live, and I have a lot of fun going to concerts, especially if they're outdoors. I enjoy staying active by going to the gym and getting together with my friends to hike the Dish. Learning new things is important to me, and I'm always up for learning a new skill. I love to cook, especially Italian. My kids always ask for seconds when I make lasagna.
A nice guy with a bit of an edge is exactly what I’m ready to find. He knows what he’s looking for in his life and is willing to put in the work to achieve it. Despite that, he’s living a balanced life and puts just as much effort into play and relaxation as he does into his work. He’s established on his path in life and knows where he’s headed, can laugh at himself, and takes a little bit of teasing for exactly what it is. He can roll with the punches and take life in stride. When it comes to romance, he understands that it largely boils down to doing the little things that make the other person feel special. Like me, he’s ready to find that connection that could last a lifetime.
