Date a soulmate from United States. I am an overly educated guy who used to teach but realized he preferred working outside and chucked in the relative security of the classroom for the ultimate security of the federal job. Now I get to work with both my hands and my mind most of the time, outdoors, surrounded by wildlife, and it is pretty fantastic.
I am really active, I like cycling, hiking, camping, swimming, and interacting with people from all walks of life.
I like to get out of town about twice a month, and also like to sit home on cold days and watch movies or go to an art or natural history museum. I spent two years living and teaching in Japan, six months doing the same in Poland, two years volunteering in Central America, and three years living in Vancouver playing a lot of ultimate frisbee and enjoying city life. I have convictions on the liberal side of the arena and try to live by them so I am good to the environment, try to treat everyone equally, and I am frightened by peopel who don't like children or animals. I have visited or lived in over thirty countries and enjoy studying languages and people but am really tired of seeing so much of the world on my own.
I don't have a big laundry list for what I am looking for in a woman, I want someone who likes similar things, who is well read or well educated, someone who cares about the world and where it is going. I suppose I am really looking for a good friend and partner who will let me know there are other ways to live life and who will be willing to introduce me to some of them. And if someone wants to give me these lessons while we are bicycling through Vietnam or volunteering in South America, all the better
