Friendly, older, nonsmoking professional, upbeat but a bit on the private side. When traveling, I try to avoid hotels, preferring to explore places by staying in residential neighborhoods and chatting with my hosts and neighbors. I'm a distance runner, and would appreciate your help finding good routes around your home. I love to try out new restaurants, especially neighborhood places that are not especially glamorous, but where the food is very good. I also enjoy cooking, and very much appreciate being allowed to use kitchen facilities (I clean up after myself :) Finally, I'm a writer, and I work a lot. So it may be that I hole up in the cosy space you've provided me and disappear for awhile to get my work done.
