I’m reasonably active… biking, hiking, golf, going to the gym, etc., but I also cherish my "down-time", i.e., reading, writing, listening to music, relaxing with friends, messing around in my workshop, and lots of hanging out at the local coffee shop (not a Starbucks) where I schmooze, play chess and discuss current-affairs with the immigrants... stuff like that.
I’ve been practicing law (my own small general practice) for about 20 years now. It's often challenging and frequently frustrating - but ultimately it provides me with a reasonable living and a modicum of intellectual stimulation... so, all-in-all, I guess I’m relatively sated with my work. I try to take some time off each year to travel (I recently returned from Vietnam and Thailand), but there are still so many "places-to-see" on my bucket-list that I'll have to live to be 100 to visit even half of them.
I enjoy motorcycle riding, browsing bookstores, camping, shooting, tinkering, fixing and building things, going to plays, concerts, comedy shows, arts and music festivals, and experimenting in the kitchen (it may come out looking ugly, but it's usually edible). Things I don't enjoy (in order): my stepmother, being pestered for free legal advice, lending out my tools, cleaning my house, and playing video games.
After a very long time off from dating, I’m seriously looking for a long-term companion who enjoys the same things as I and would like to share doing them with me someone who is intelligent and focused, hard working but low-stress, and attractive yet low-maintenance... (yes, that too -). Based on my observations of the prolific, while not having children does make some things substantially easier, procreating may very well be worth the effort... so wanting to produce a "mini-me" (or two) with the right co-parent is at least something of a consideration (but not a deal-breaker).
