I gave up the DC life 12 (!) years ago to live life at the beach and have never looked back. I love my life, but wish I had someone to talk to about the latest episode of The Big Bang Theory, or the book they are reading or that interview on Diane Rehm. I've been a geek since before it was cool and fight my shyness everyday. I have lead a fairly serious first 40 years, and am looking for that balance of fun and reality that "they" keep promising is out there. I am honest to a fault, dedicated and kind. I am looking for someone I have somethings in common with and someone who will introduce me to new adventures. Life is good -- let's make it better together.
