I'm a calm, introspective, and thoughtful person, easy going, sometimes funny, creative. Youthful in spirit and appearance, I have a lot to offer. I enjoy spontaneity and adventure, like wandering through towns at random rail-stops in India, camping in the Cascades, or just trying out a complicated recipe for a special dinner. I like films that teach me about different cultures and societies, like the Apu trilogy and City of God, as well as others, offbeat and mainstream. I also like Labrador Retrievers and often have one following me around. I work as a college professor, and get some opportunities to travel to beautiful places around the world, often with time on the side to spend with a companion. I'm looking for someone who is a smart, lively and energetic, young at heart, curious and often still surprised, nice (but has an edge), and, of course, beautiful to me, who loves affection, and enjoys spontaneity in life.
