Seeking Partner In Crime...

He sees the big picture and can easily take the broad, long view of almost any topic. And he also has an adventurous side.

He enjoys new ideas and novel experiences which he wants to share with an enthusiastic partner.

He particularly enjoys people who like to play with abstract theories and ideas, provide insights, search for symbolic meanings in life and relationships and have a broad interest in the world.

A few excerpts from his personality test:

  • My family and friends would say I have traditional values
  • I am willing to take risks to do what I want to do
  • I often find myself getting lost in my thoughts during the day

in his own words...

Animals love me and I have an odd talent for getting along with just about everybody... Although I'm fundamentally shy, there's something about me that makes people want to talk, so I end up in engaging conversations with a huge range of people, from taxi drivers to CEOs. Although my job is in high tech business strategy, cooking is my passion, and probably my best outlet for my artistic side. Exercise, golf, and travel for fantastic food experiences seem to be taking up most of my time recently. Training for and competing in triathlons dominated my time a while ago, but I now like to branch out more.

I definitely appreciate the little things, and don't let the small things bug me at all. I never panic. I'm happy, kind, confident, and successful professionally and personally -- mostly. On that last point, I just need to find someone similarly content and kind, but missing a partner to grow with. Looking for a best friend and partner in crime to continue to explore the world and help each other grow. I've found that I bond closest to smart, thoughtful people who are also caring and nice. Although I'm equally comfortable in the city or countryside, the outdoors is important to me, and hopefully, an interest for you as well. Since I love to travel to seek new (or simply "great") food experiences, you shouldn't mind getting off the beaten path. On the other hand, if you're a foodie as well, it
