I am an ambitious mid-30's professional. Last year, I changed jobs, and went from travelling almost every week to working from home almost full time. It's been a huge change in lifestyle! The main positive has been that I've got more of an opportunity to spend with friends in Atlanta. It's been really nice.
In my personal time, I am a bit of a travel fanatic. All those years of travelling have given me a nice little piggy bank airline/hotel points, which really helps with the budget! I just added some pics from my trip to Korea and Japan in January 2013; the highlights were the DMZ tour in Korea, and then Japan was a ski trip. In October, I went to Peru/Machu Picchu which was also pretty amazing. I really enjoy experiencing the culture of the places I travel to, eating their food, drinking their drinks, etc.
In Atlanta, I like going out to new restaurants, or just hanging out with friends. I generally prefer chilling around a table with a bunch of beers than going to a really loud club where you can't hear anyone. I frequently bring some dry wit to the conversation. I love to laugh, and can usually catch people off guard with my sarcasm. I also try to work out at least 3-4 times a week - I like the beer, but want nothing to do with the gut!
Intelligence is a major turn on for me. I like being with someone that can contribute to a conversation on a variety of topics. I also really enjoy a great sense of humor and a bit of sarcasm. If you can catch me off guard with some dry wit, I'll be a huge fan.
I frequently find myself amused by the list of "don'ts" on your profiles, which are pretty amusing to me. If I email you, it means I haven't just scanned your photos, but I've read your profile, and have seen something in it that seemed interesting. Your age seems appropriate relative to mine. I won't ask you to put your cat/dog to sleep, or never speak to your parents again (and I'll probably get along with them just fine if it gets to that point). I want to keep my friends, and expect you to keep yours as well. Let's see, I won't open with an obnoxious line about how hot you are (again, I read your profile).....and maybe it's worth saying based on some of the comments about what you have to put up with, yes, that does imply that I know how to read. Basically, I'll treat you with respect and won't try to possess you, and I expect the same in a partner.
