ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

Hey, I’m Drew. I was born and raised in the Cleveland area, and have been LA for 7 years now (after some time in North Carolina and Louisiana). I somewhat reluctantly came to LA for a job (I'm a history teacher), I have come to appreciate life in SoCal. I love my job, and get up excited every day to to go work with amazing people and energetic and exciting kids. I live in Santa Monica, and love being so close to the beach and able to walk to so many great restaurants and shops. The weather is great, and there is so much to do! I love my LA life, but I’m missing that special someone to share it with and make it complete, so I decided to try Match. Worst case scenario, I meet some fun new people. Best case scenario…

I grew up in a pretty grounded and normal family, and am looking for the same thing for myself. My parents are still together, and have been for 35 years. I am really close to them, and spend most holidays with them, and really enjoy traveling with them still today. I have a small but loyal group of friends that I would do anything for. I work hard and am ambitious, but am also pretty laid back and relaxed, and am happy to go with the flow. I’m loyal, honest, realistic, and am good at laughing at myself and not taking things too seriously (I work with teenagers, after all). The word probably most used by others to describe me is “nice” (my students also tell me how funny I am, but I think they are mostly kissing up)

I’m probably happiest when I’m learning and exploring and am naturally really curious and inquisitive. I'm fascinated by the world and its people, places and cultures-- and spend a lot of time exploring and learning: in person, in books, on tv, or in movies. I hope to meet someone who shares a passion for the world of ideas, and loves travel, exploration and adventure . I’ve been lucky enough to visit around 30 different countries, and If I’m not currently on a trip, I’m probably planning one. If I’m not planning something, I’m reading and dreaming about where I’m going next. That said, my head is firmly attached (i.e. i'm not a total dreamer), and I also love to stay close to home (visiting museums, spending a day out in some new neighborhood, discovering a great hole in the wall restaurant, or spending a weekend up the coast or in the mountains) or at home (reading, conversing, debating politics and the world around us, watching tv, curling up with a movie, cooking, or firing up the grill). I enjoy the theater too (especially musicals), and am always willing to do new things-- I will try almost anything at once.

I’m pretty active, and take every opportunity to get out and about. I love the outdoors, and enjoy camping, hiking and boating. I have trouble deciding if I like beaches or mountains better-- I live two blocks from the beach now but go skiing or hiking whenever I get a chance. I’ve been a skier my whole life, and like nothing more than a weekend at the slopes at Mammoth or Big Bear, or a day at Mt. Baldy or Mt. High. I think water is my natural element, and I’ve been around it my whole life—as a swimmer and swim coach, sailing, boating, kayaking and canoeing, trying to surf, and learning to dive and SUP I love sports—both to play and watch. I’m pretty loyal to my Cleveland teams, and wish they were better—it can be a pretty painful experience. I still swim, and play on a rec softball team every week.

I'm hoping to meet my best friend and partner in exploration and adventure. Someone interested in the world around them and committed to making it better. A person who inspires me to go to new places, try new things and values learning. A woman who treasures family and friends; is intelligent, creative, curious, passionate, funny, and grounded; has a career that challenges and fulfills her and has some direction in life. Most importantly, I want to find someone with whom it doesn't really matter what we are doing, since we always have a great time because we're together

Pet Essay:

I love dogs and cats, but dogs are my favorite. I really want to get a dog--a lab or a golden--but I think having big dogs in small apartments is kind of unfair-- they need grass and space. Hopefully in the not so distant future, though.

Favorite hot spots:

I have become a true west-sider I guess and pretty much live in Santa Monica and Venice. Main Street and Abbott Kinney are my favorites, although I'm within walking distance of the promenade and Montana and end up there a lot too.

Favorite things:

Traveling, checking out new places or restaurants. Going to go to the theater, museums, or lectures. Anything around water (swimming, sailing, boating, skiing, paddle boarding, or just relaxing on the beach). Skiing or hiking in the mountains.

Last read:

I love books, and read a lot: history for passion and work, travel books for inspiration and excitement, mysteries for fun and literature for the intellectual challenge. I also read a lot of magazines: Time, Outside, GQ, and NatGeo for example...
