Are you ready for the great outdoors with a twist? Because not only do I practically live outdoors, but as a college science professor I can be your own personal nature tour guide. One of my favorite pastimes is hiking on the Billy Goat Trail looking for glimpses into the lives of the plants and animals there. To the bemusement of my friends and fellow hikers I have often danced with joy at the site of a slug munching a shelf fungus or an opportunity to learn more about the mating habits of cicadas.
I am also a huge fan of swimming in the ocean eyes open looking for a cool jellyfish or perhaps a sting -ray when I am visiting the gulf beaches.
Despite my scientific side, I can downright silly. Most summer evenings I can be found in the pool with a circle of my closest friends cutting up until we laugh so hard we’re getting water up our noses. (I think the lifeguards have finally come to realize we are not actually drowning.) I also love joking around and playing with my nephews, as it is a great excuse to continue climbing trees. (I was very tickled when my seven year old nephew recently asked me if I was a teenager!) I find any movie with Adam Sandler or Will Ferrell wildly funny.
My guy is warm, affectionate, family oriented, and dog friendly. He loves the outdoors, traveling, and has a positive outlook on life. He is intelligent and enjoys a philosophical conversation, but has a sense of humor as well. On weekends we might visit Harper’s Ferry where we hike up to Maryland Heights to watch the sunset over the Blue Ridge Mountains and Shenandoah River, followed by dinner in a quaint little inn. So tell me about you and what you enjoy doing? Where would love to travel to?
