I am software engineer with a large variety of interests and am always willing and wanting to try new things. Some of my likes are reading, watching soccer and baseball on TV, wine, going to soccer and baseball games, drinking coffee and reading in a cafe, playing sports, sports bars, hanging out at the beach, reading books on history, chocolate, art, architecture, humans, humor, France, French culture, French History, travel, weekend trips to any place in the country, Pennsylvania, State College, Pittsburgh, active listeners, bike riding, bars, clubs, road trips, movies, conversation, considerate people, politeness, San Francisco, Vancouver, live stage theatre, dogs, cats, and most furry animals. My dislikes are spiders, most bugs, overt and/or gratuitous rudeness, computers (go figure), and the Dodgers.
I own and run a large adult soccer club and spend much of my free time at the soccer field coaching, organizing, playing, and socializing with the club members. Running the club is my current passion.
Concerning my personality I consider myself open minded, sincere, accepting, compromising, adventurous, social, reasonably stubborn, and very loyal. I find humor in just about everything, view the world with a touch of sardonic amusement (ok, maybe more than a touch), love to smile and laugh, try to avoid value judgements, am very affectionate, try to think of others before myself, am goal directed, believe everyone is an adult and responsible for themselves, willing to help when asked, and put a lot of energy into self-monitoring and active listening.
I am looking for an intelligent, independent, feisty, and playful woman. She should enjoy meeting new people, be social and adaptable to situations; have a wide range of interests and/or be interested in trying new things regularly; enjoy reading; be empathetic and caring; show tolerance, consideration, and acceptance of others; love to smile and laugh; willing to compromise; want a family; enjoy some sports (love of soccer a huge plus) and going to sporting events; and have a love for travel.
No ballerinas. Okay ballerinas.
