I'm originally from California but have been in NYC for the last 8 years. I grew up outside of San Francisco and went to college in sunny San Diego, however, my love for this city is one of my true joys and moving here was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I find new reasons to fall in love with NYC everyday.
I'm hoping to meet someone who challenges me but shares the same values and goals in life, who agrees that being happy, seeing the world, working hard, laughing, dancing, eating a great meal and making time to be with those you love are some of the most important things in life and make it worth living.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a recruiter and love finding people jobs!
I’m really good at
Remembering super random facts...
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile...though as of late my ethnicity. People are always
curious about the cheek bones ; )
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My reading list varies tremendously! I enjoy the classics and consider a Tale of Two Cities and Pride and Prejudice some of my favorites. However, I must admit being guilty of loving the Hunger Games and Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogies as well as historical fiction and non-fiction. Right now I'm into the Outlander books which is a legit commitment since they are 600 plus pages! I'm a history nerd so almost anything in that realm usually interests me.
In terms of movies I Iove the classic 80's/90's and definitely admit that the entire Indiana Jones Series gets me everytime. It's cliche but I have never changed the channel when I've happened to come across Shawshank. It doesn't get better than that! I really enjoy films and love a good convo afterwards discussing the stories, characters and depth of the acting. I also feel like some of the best tv is happening as I write this...Walking Dead, The Good Wife, Game of Thrones, True Detective, Downton Abby, New Girl and The Blacklist. Trying to get into my light hearted shows so feel free to send me recommendations :-)
Ahh music...there is something about a song bringing back a time in your life and making you smile. Whether it reminds you of love, dancing the night away or singing at the top of your lungs in the car! My taste is incredibly varied. I grew up listening to Tupac, Biggie, Bobbie Brown and Cyndy Lauper then fell for Garth Brooks, Tyrone Wells, Adele, Drake, Foo Fighters, Coldplay, Ron Pope, Jack Johnson, Bruno Mars, Sam Hunt, Taylor Swift (yes, I'm aware I'm no longer a teenager but her last album was amazing), The Fray, Mumford & Sons, Jay Z, John Mayer, Rihanna, Kings of Leon and The Lumineers...my playlists are incredibly random but fit every mood.
My favorite foods are Sushi and Mexican food. I can't tell you how much I miss a Breakfast Burrito from back home...it's one of the things that I can't find a substitute for here.
The six things I could never do without
1-My friends and family (to me they are one in the same)
5-A nice cold beer/glass of white wine
Close contenders: a good movie/book, waking up to blue skies
(whether its 20 or 90 degrees outside seeing the sun and sky makes
me smile), and the sound of my nieces laugh-it's one of the best
things I've ever heard.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Happiness and what it means to me...it's all that really matters at
the end of the day.
On a typical Friday night I am
Well it depends on how the week went. There are times when all I
want to do is head home and relax and then other Friday nights
where I look forward to heading to drinks or dinner with friends
see where the night leads me...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not looking for someone to complete me...a wise woman once told
me that being in a relationship should be like the cherry on top of
a sundae. It only makes life that much better and I couldn't agree
with her more! Being comfortable and happy with yourself is one of
the most important things in life and finding someone who loves you
for who you are comes after you get to that place.
You should message me if
You're comfortable with who you and what you want...you're genuine,
smart, eager and love to laugh!
