I am a thinker, an explorer, risk taker and an athlete. And I also want to be part of a couple that is sharing, supportive, nice and likes to do things.
The Harvard thing is true, I went there for college and law school but it doesn't define me. But I hope it indicates that I like to think and I have an active mind and imagination for planning dates.
I have a bunch of stamps on my passport, but exploring for me is finding a great unknown restaurant, finding that stash of powder at Kirkwood, finding out a great story my partner has to share. If your passion is spending a lot of money staying in the Park Hyatt in Paris, that is not my sense of exploring. Although I am not a stranger to Ritz Carltons and Relaix and Chateau resorts.
I am a risk taker, working with start-up companies rather than staying in the safe, secure and lucrative law firm partnership track. Hopefully, that will work out economically better in the long run, but it has already worked out much better for me on a happiness level.
I am an athlete. I ski, golf, run and bike. I have shot below par, I finished in the top 10% in an ultramarathon and have completed the California Triple Crown as well as done the Death Ride. But I also like Northstar vs Squaw and am happy to just hike around Fremont Older.
What I am hoping to find is someone nice. I have done the resume type of dating based on education, profession and profile picture. But a good friend told me that I wasn't ready to hear this before but now he thinks I will actually listen - that the question you need to ask is will you be happy with this person 10, 20 and 40 years from now. It is not a resume or picture that you will be with, but a partner. Of course I want someone who is smart, athletic with some shared interests, but I need someone who is nice and fun to be around.
If you've reached this far, thanks for reading.
