Do you want to save the world and have a good time doing it? We may have a connection.
First, some things about me. I love pop culture. I have hip hop sensibilities but can also get down to Duran Duran and A-Ha. I was a social worker for two years, so social justice issues are important. But so is spending time with friends and family. Life is all about balance.
I love to be on the move. Whether it be running, surfing, traveling or hiking. I want to experience the world and all it has to offer. Yes, sports are a big part of my life, but I prefer to participate rather than watch. Are you willing to spend a weekend on a quiet beach camping and surfing? Don't know how to surf? I'm always willing to teach.
I've lived abroad, speak another language and have an open mind. If you want to go to Hawaii or South America, that's major points for you. If you've ever stayed up all night in a Mediterranean city and then gone swimming in your underwear at sunrise, well, I have too.
What am I looking for? First and foremost, someone with a great sense of humor. You have to be able to laugh at life's little tragedies. You have to adore the Onion. You have to have had the urge to laugh at inappropriate moments. Secondly, intelligence. That doesn't mean you have to have a Ph.D., it just means you have to be genuinely interested in and passionate about life. Thirdly, balanced. Can you appreciate both Superbad and arty movies? Pop music and Beethoven? Work and play?
If you think you can keep up, give me a shout. Maybe we'll catch some waves together.
