THE SKINNY: Former Corporate EA turned Manager of a scientific laboratory here in Olympia. I'm still fairly new to Washington by way of Florida. Looking for good company with possibilities.
ME: My religion of choice is "play nice," and I live by the general code of 'keeping things simple.' I love the out-doors, nature, and animals, and live a healthy and balanced lifestyle, but without obsessing.
I find those who live with purpose invigorating, and am drawn to those with a twinkle in their eye.
The people I care about, know it. When I'm wrong, I admit it. If I've messed up, I make it right. My friends and family would refer to me as considerate and thoughtful; I'm present, I look you in the eye, I smile every-time I see you. My attention is focused on what motivates and inspires you and I, and we talk about what's both funny and exhilarating about our respective lives, each time we reconnect. Confidence permeates the room I walk into, but without the waft of snobbery. Dancing and hitting the town are fun, given the right occasion, but I love a good/geeky youtube lecture with a cup of home-made cocoa too. Foremost, I find great joy in making memories with the people I love, and knowing my presence in their life has expanded their idea of trust, joy, and laughter.
YOU: Down-to-earth, wit, and humor are qualities in a man I find sexy. You know who you are. I love confidence, but don't necessarily have a type. I appreciate good intentions, authenticity, and tenderness.
*If I do not respond, I admire the courage it takes to introduce yourself, but just don't foresee a connection happening. I wouldn't want to waste your time or my own. Happy fishing!
