Hey there. Am looking for that best friend who makes me smile when she comes in the room, or enters my thoughts. I value family on top of a list of other things I love, and spend time as a soccer and baseball coach, reading bedtime stories at night, helping with homework, sitting down to dinner, or refereeing sibling squabbles. I left a career as a high tech executive, semi-retired, I dabble in investments and start-ups. I attended graduate school full time, for a second time. I grew up near the beach in southern California surfing and enjoying many water sports. I now ski, bike, hike, climb, and love to travel. Sometimes I love the more minimalist trip and sometimes I love the luxurious one. I have a list of places-to-see and things-I-gotta-do. I seek a best friend looking to merge her own list of adventures, hopes, and accomplishments with mine.I think my match will be educated, knows herself, is athletic, adventurous, shares similar values, is humble, is confident, usually stands out in a crowd, loves to cook, loves children, has a great family, and is highly competent. Together we are much better than alone.
