I'm a pretty average guy. Although I've been happy being single the last few years, I'm starting to really miss having a special guy in my life. I'm independent, funny at times, introspective and shy but goofy and pretty silly once you get to know me.
I try to stay in shape and keep things fit, but I'm certainly not a gym bunny by any means...I go to the gym a few times a week. I am interested in guys who care about their health and fitness but don't go overboard. I like to do outdoorsy stuff when I get the chance (a day hike, maybe kayaking around one of the lakes), but you're more likely to see me enjoying a late brunch and strolling through the Olympic Sculpture Park or just lounging in the sun at Matthews Beach with pals or a good book.
I have a background in both science (I'm currently a research scientist at UW) and theater (I was an artist's liaison for a performing arts organization in my previous life), so I have pretty diverse interests. As far as entertainment goes, I enjoy the theater every once in awhile, but mostly head to the movies (anything sci-fi or involving explosions!) or read some fiction involving something totally nerdy and embarrassingly trashy...you'll have to get to know me a little before I out myself about my taste in books! Also love to head to a restaurant or lounge and wine and dine with friends.
I'm not exactly sure what my type is, since I've had dates with all kinds of men in the past. Looks aren't everything, but they are a good place to start. An initial attraction is important! In terms of personality, I'm interested in guys who are casually confident without being smarmy, in a career or on the path to one that is fulfilling for them, whatever that might be, and as independent and generally OK with who they are as I am. Basically, I'm looking for an adult who plays well with others and is pretty grounded. Beyond that, we'll just have to see if things fall into place...
