I am a thoughtful, premium, sensitive, smart guy who enjoys a good laugh at my own expense or a random adventure. I have been living in the area for a while, so I know a lot of cool places to visit. My friends and family are very important to me and I treasure my time with them. I am a sucker for great food and drink. Some would even say I am an epicurean. I love to cook. My ideal date would be to pick a fun recipe together and get lost in a Chinese grocer looking for obscure ingredients in route to a fabulous home cooked meal. I am also an interesting mix of city and country. I grew up on a mountain in Colorado, so I have serious outdoor skills, but I also love the culture and vibe of the city. Whether it be an amazing jazz concert at the Kennedy Center or an interesting exhibit at the Phillips collection, I try to make the most of my city life. Surprise, surprise, I am also into travel and ethnic experiences. So if you have visited any great spots, I would love to hear about them. I really loved New Zealand and would go back in a heartbeat. Korea and Japan are next on my list.
I am a bit of a smarty pants and connoisseur of highbrow things, but not in a correct your grammar kind of way, more in a solving puzzles and lets find new and interesting places to visit/eat/hear music. Others have described me as brilliant, but I am not quite sure I see that in myself. Actually, I can't spell worth a damn. However, I do know what math problem Good Will Hunting is trying to solve when the MIT math department issues its grand challenge. My handle is a riddle, bonus points if you can use it to determine my Alumna Mater. My job gives me an opportunity to flex my brian and creativity muscles, which I really enjoy. Minimal travel is also a perk, so I can focus my off time on my own adventures.
I am looking for someone with a good heart, strong mind and healthy body. I was with my first wife for 5 years and she taught me how to be a good partner and enjoy both the ups and downs of life. I know what it is like to be in a deeply connected relationship where someone else is your everything. Where you give freely of yourself and even finish each others thoughts. I am looking for this again.
I enjoy living a fairly active lifestyle; so a willingness to get off the couch and do something spontaneous is a big plus in my book. I am generally attracted to confident, well educated, strong women with a gentle side. Write me if you are into fun and fine food.
