I am a small-business owner and personal trainer, living and working north of downtown Seattle. My dog is with me most of the time, even at work. My work hours are busiest before and after the standard business day. My social time is rare and very valuable to me. There is nothing tentative about my schedule. I am unlikely to find an opening on my schedule for anyone who is disrespectful of my time. I am looking for friends, first and foremost, and would consider dating a guy regularly if there is a strong connection. I am not looking for an exclusive relationship right now, though that is an attractive option for the future. I am definitely not here to chat online. It is unlikely that I would contact anyone first, as I only pass by my computer occasionally. Though there are some great men all over the world, I am only interested in those who can actually spend time with me in person, on a regular basis. I want friends who live close enough to commute round-trip by car or bus in one day. Only local residents are invited to contact me to arrange to meet in person for friendship or to discuss strength training philosophy and strategy. If you live far away and are coming to Seattle, I hope you have a great time here, though I will not make any effort to meet with tourists.
