If I had to choose one word to describe myself, it would be the term "understated" even though this is balanced by other characteristics like self confidence and a sense of self worth. I am also somewhat conservative by temperment but enjoy splurging occassionally even in these difficult times with dining out and theatre. I would like that significant other to have read the morning paper and be prepared to discuss an issue of the day that peaked her interest. Curiosity and an willingness to pursue culture are key ingredients for me in establishing a sustainable relationship whether that underpinning comes from theatre, concerts (including symphony) or travel. The more social side of me likes dancing and even a willingness to improve some interactive steps especially latin dances like the Salsa. If someone out there is looking for a person with an even temperment coupled with a sense of humor and tempered by intellectual curiosity, I am probably the right person for you.
