Visiting Phoenix on Feb 26, and NYC April and end of June. I'm interested in academics, science, art, philosophy, traveling and culture. I hope to meet a man who enjoys a life of the mind but can help me grow in other areas, as well. But, just as much, a man who is not afraid to let me learn to love him. I'm an artist and a scientist, a musician and a traveler.
I'm an American citizen by birth but grew up abroad and have spent some time abroad as an adult, as well. I love traveling and learning about world cultures. I'm a passionate foodie. Though I've just finished my classwork for an engineering degree at GA Tech, I already have degrees in music performance and make some extra money in Atlanta working as a musician. I had an internship in Cleveland, Ohio this winter/spring and a second internship in north Georgia over the summer. I have a few weeks' vacation before I seriously get down to looking for a job.
I'd like to date a guy who is educated and interested in continually expanding his mind and experience of the larger world and who will help encourage me to grow as well. Ambition, confidence and taking his job seriously are important. I did not learn team sports as a child and haven't been interested in them as I've grown. However, I would like to become more involved in exercise and activities such as scuba diving, bungee jumping, parachuting and even yoga. I don't expect the man I date to share every interest that I do, but a few commonalities are rather important, and he shouldn't expect me to be fascinated by everything he's passionate about. But, a willingness and flexibility to be educated about and supportive of the other's interests is important.
I'm not into the club scene mostly because I like to have a conversation without yelling and don't enjoy being deafened by music so bad they play it at a desensitizing volume; and not to mention the literal and figurative atmosphere (smoke in GA bars). I'm always looking for romance in my life (maybe because I'm not the most romantic guy and am looking to change that). I'm a guy, we get horny, but I'll take slow romance over a quick hook-up and am looking for a guy within six or seven year's age difference who has similar interests and ambitious goals in life. Even though I'm somewhat out, most people never guess that I'm gay because I have always put my academic and lifetime goals ahead of transient amusements and find no need to find my identity and self-worth in my sexuality. I'm smart, good looking, ambitious, rife with contradictions and, quite often, brutally honest. I hope to die being able to say that I never compromised my ideals, otherwise I should get myself some new ideals. I'm looking for a nice guy who takes life seriously but will help me to not take myself too seriously; because, who could tell from reading the above paragraph that I take my self too seriously?
I am analytical, vulnerable, and paradoxical
Kinds of guys I'm looking for:
I like intelligent, educated and confident men who are interested in the world, culture and continually exploring. Sharing all the same interests could possibly get boring, but we need to at least have a few things in common and be complementary.
