I am independent, health conscious, physically active,
career-minded, and looking for the same. I hope to eventually find
my soul mate, so beyond getting to know someone I'm not interested
in casual dating. Will you be my last first date...? I've never
been married, and have no kids (unless you count the 4-legged
variety), so yes, I am truly without baggage and drama-free!
I have strong morals and values, WYSIWYG. I know that I am in the
minority, but I believe that marriage really is "until death do us
part", and I will move mountains to that end. I grew up in a
church-going Christian household, but am not active with any
denomination. Call me more spiritual than religious, yet with many
of the same core values. I'm pragmatic, approaching life as a
positive realist, well-grounded and practical in decision making.
What I’m doing with my life
ACTIVITIES THAT I ENJOY...
>Training my dogs
>Working out at LA Fitness
, and roller
>Doing a marathon
, or triathlon
>Weekend get-aways to the beach, mountains, or anywhere
I am a 100% drug-free, athletic and health-minded individual,
left-brained, goal-oriented, and career-driven but not
career-obsessed. I am very committed to a healthy lifestyle, not a
"granola head" per se, just sensible attention to eating right and
exercise. And no, I don't need medz to play well with others!
And sorry, I have no "bathroom mirror" or "in my car" pix to post,
I know, I'm a huge disappointment already! :)
I’m really good at
The good news is I can cook, the bad news- it's not gourmet, and
getting everything to come out hot at the same time can be rather
exciting! But don't worry, I keep an arsenal of fire extinguishers
in close proximity, and I've never had anyone leave my table hungry
(or ill)! :) I enjoy being a host and entertainer, making dinner
and having friends over for movie nights, etc.
I commute 100-200 miles per week on a bicycle (even in the summer),
not because I have to, but because I can. :) Don't worry, I have a
perfectly good car and pickup for when I need them, but both mostly
stay in the garage. Beyond green, there is something liberating
about commuting on a bicycle.
I'm a giver and nurturer at heart, and love pampering and spoiling
the special person in my life, but I'm also looking for someone who
understands that a good relationship is about reciprocity.
The first things people usually notice about me
Well I don't know why people don't notice it, but I have never been
complimented on my dashing great looks or Johnny Depp physique!
(JK, //sarcasm off now :P) However people often do make remarks
that I am easy to talk with and that I'm an intelligent
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - non-fiction, especially history, business or technical
Music - 80's classics to current rock, pop and hip-hop, and some
Movies - comedies, some drama, some action (classic faves- American
Pie, The Rock, Black Hawk Down)
Food - Italian, or most anything I cook myself
The six things I could never do without
Bright sunny days
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Most likely new business or investing ideas, and planning for the
future, but this is not something I'm obsessed about. I also like
to live in and enjoy the "here and now", so I don't spend a huge
amount of time "contemplating life" either. :) But I do often
wonder why OkCupid insists on matching me with so many people who
have nothing more than a picture in their profile! :P
On a typical Friday night I am
There is no such thing as a typical Friday, it really varies by
week. But top three odds would on at a happy hour with friends, at
the gym, or at home starting the weekend. Sometimes by Friday night
I am really tired from the week and don't feel like being anything
more than a homebody, it just all depends on the day.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't kiss on the first or second date, and I've never had a
manicure or pedicure! (lol) And don't pay much mind to those little
"personality trait" profile symbols, they keep changing every time
I answer a few questions, I seriously doubt there is very much
scientific weight in them! :)
You should message me if
you hope to eventually meet "the one" and not just another date, if
you relate to anything in my profile, and if you are independent,
career-minded, and physically active. I'm looking for a woman who
truly values and reciprocates the qualities of a devoted partner,
and desires a 'til death do us part' monogamous relationship.
Ideally you believe in the adage of "happiness is being married to
your best friend." Of course this is not a process to rush, I want
to spend time getting to know you first, but we should both have a
similar end goal in mind if we find chemistry in common.
