I grew up in South Jersey, near Philadelphia. I'm close to my family and my younger brother is one of my best friends. Seriously, he's awesome. I grew up with 2 cats and a dog (golden retriever) and I just adopted a puppy! He's a dachshund/golden retriever mix and he's so much fun!
I can be shy and reserved, but I warm up pretty quickly. I have a very dry, sarcastic sense of humor and am looking for someone who can take it and can also give it right back to me. My friends would describe me as intelligent, loyal and compassionate.
I was once attacked by a duck. I have an extreme phobia/fascination with sharks. My pet peeves include tardiness and getting my bathing suits wet. My guilty pleasures include reality TV and eating speculoos straight from the jar. One of these is a joke. Can you guess which one?
I usually enjoy a pretty low-key weekend. I go to brunch, do some shopping and take the puppy to the park. I definitely prefer an intimate dinner with a few friends over a night of partying.
I love to travel and don't think I'll ever be satisfied with the number of stamps in my passport. Last year I went on trips to Peru, Thailand, Laos and Cambodia and this year have my sights set on Argentina, Brazil and Vietnam.
Overall I'm very happy with where my life is right now and proud of my accomplishments. I have a job I love, time to travel, my own apartment, a loving family, great friends, and a puppy to come home to. The only thing missing is that special someone.
