Hey! I've been in the Chicago area for about 18 months, and still spend a lot of time walking the city and exploring new places. I'm also a regular volunteer for various local causes, where I get my do-gooder fix. Other than that, I'm a total bookworm and always on the lookout for something new to read.
I do believe in meeting up relatively quickly. Email is really only good for confirming that the very basic stuff is there, it can't at all capture either physical or intellectual chemistry.
Also, please please have all ex-boyfriend issues settled beforehand.
Also, I just learned how to sail, so if you want I can float you around a little. Mom said not to get in a car with strange men, but she didn't say anything about a boat ;-)
