I enjoy traveling, a good thing since I hop on a plane most weeks of the year as part of my consulting job. You'd be surprised to find out that I am a bit more of a home-body though and enjoy spending my down time cooking, surfing the Internet, or watching TV/movies. I tend to be a bit of an introvert, and the right personality can bring out the best in me, but if I get pushed too far beyond my limits, my body and emotions tend to shut down as a coping mechanism. I'm also not a chatty Cathy that opens up and shares about my personal life easily, so I appreciate it when people ask the right questions to find out more about who I am inside.
I experience a little sluttiness but hold back a reasonable amount and take appropriate measures when I do have sex to protect myself from STDs. A little alcohol combined with me being in the right mood one night and thinking someone is really hot has led to sex that sparks the start of a friendship.
So as far as what I'm looking for:
I can't hold myself to sex with just one guy right now and I'm not looking for a relationship. I'm looking for guys that will provide companionship and who compliment my personality. I'd enjoy spending time with someone that I can learn from and who can learn from me. I need someone who I can trust to be open and honest, and who understands my needs and communicates his needs. Based on those needs, we'll need to work out what can happen.
I want to meet someone who challenges me to think about my goals in life and how they fit into the big picture of the world.
I work out of town during the week a lot, so it makes weekends a bit stressful with catchup on the usual stuff, but I definitely enjoy meeting up with friends.
Likes: Smiles are a good start. Long term, I'd like to meet someone that has a balance of homemaker and adventurous spirit.
Turn-offs: People who are clingy.
Experiencing all that life has to offer. I'll try almost anything once.
Cooking, although I'm not a great cook--it takes a lot of work and I don't have the right space, tools, or knowledge to be able to cook well. I know that I don't have a grasp on lot of basic knowledge of food science.
Running/lifting, and although my knowledge of the muscles in my body is limited, I'm continuing to learn more about my body. I'm growing stronger every day.
I'm an Eagle Scout. I fondly remember how much I enjoyed camping as a scout and don't get to unwind in the same way anymore. I miss that.
I recently saw Were the World Mine and really enjoyed it. I also recently saw Revolutionary Road and was surprised to feel bothered by the sex scenes.
I enjoy many varieties and like to visit the symphony, go to a U2 concert, or go out dancing at clubs once in awhile.
I think the Signature Salad at Cosi is awesome.
