I moved to Seattle in August 2010 and am slowly getting to know the area. Though originally from California I spent the last 5 years living in New York city and have lived in many different places since graduating from college including Boston, New York and DC. I am planning on making Seattle my final stop as I don't have enough energy to move again! Though technically I no longer live in Seattle as I just bought a place in Issaquah. Yes, I am now an "Eastsider."
In regards to dating, it seems like everyone is more or less looking for the same qualities in a person. You can never really put a finger on chemistry as some people click and some do not and though it's important to have common interests, opposites can attract as well.
With that being said I am a fun, intelligent guy with a great sense of humor (or so I've been told) and I look for the same qualities in anyone I date. Though I am not necessarily looking for someone who shares the exact same interests as me I am mostly looking for someone intelligent with a warm personality and a great sense of humor. As boring as this sounds, I am a nice guy looking to meet a nice girl.
In my spare time I like going to movies, sporting events, the occasional concert, and anywhere nice I can walk my dog such as Golden Gardens, Discovery Park, Magnusen and Greenlake. This summer I look forward to getting out and seeing more of the surrounding area such as the San Juan Islands, Victoria and Vancouver. After surviving my first winter in Seattle I realize that you really need to take advantage of the summers here!
I am also an avid reader and love going to bookstores. My favorites include Strand in New York, Elliot Bay in Seattle and Powells in Portland.
Anyway, if you think we might click send me a wink or email and I will get back to you!
