I like taking day trips, broadening my mind, and just generally traveling. I get along well with people who aspire to do something greater and who are ambitious. I don't do real well around super quiet people who don't communicate well, especially if they are insecure....it's really hard on my brain because I need to speak my mind and it sucks when people internalize stuff and don't speak up when something is wrong.
I was born and raised in West Hartford CT, so you could say I have East coast values/morals. But I lived in FL (for college) and I've been in L.A. for thirteen years, so I'm definitely acclimated to the West coast and I'll be out here for good.
Some other stuff: I believe in keeping myself fit and healthy, and I admire that in other people as well. I enjoy watching TV, comedies and what not, and also the history channel and shows that actually make me smarter. That said, getting outside to do activities is very important to me as well. It's all about balance.
While I can do fine talking to women when I'm out, it seems a lot of women I meet out are distracted and kind of in it for the short term. I'm 35 now. I've dated a bunch. There was a time when doing lots of short-term dating was totally fine. I don't feel that way anymore. Having said that, going out for a light/fun date is totally the way to go. No reason to add pressure to a situation when it's not needed. If there's a connection, awesome. If there isn't a connection, I won't take it personally and I hope you won't either.
