I'm hoping to find someone with whom I can share my energy and enthusiasm for life. I enjoy the outdoors, backpacking, hiking, biking or kayaking. I'm almost always up for an adventure or willing to try something new. I often have long conversations in coffee shops and easily get lost in bookstores or museums. I am intellectual by nature. I like to travel. France is my favorite country to visit. I can easily spend quiet evening at home with dinner and a movie. I have a weakness for lattes, the New Yorker, and the farmer's market. I teach at a private Jewish high school, while I finish up a doctoral dissertation in international politics. I am a deeply caring and empathetic person, as well as a loyal, compassionate and dedicated friend. When I make friends, I keep them for a lifetime. I have a great group of friends, but I'm now looking for someone who could become my best friend, partner and companion in life. I'm attracted to intelligence, humor, passion and empathy. I am looking for someone with a really big heart and intellect who will want to share his life with me.
