These days, I prefer a nice late dinner rather than loud music at a crowded bar.
I (successfully) quit smoking over a year ago and, no, I did not jump on the Vape bandwagon. Along this path, I've started getting active and taking care of myself again. While the transition back to a healthier self hasn't been an easy one, it's becoming something I can't live without. It'd be nice to meet someone who is striving for the same (or encourages me to do so). With that being said, it doesn't mean I can't enjoy my mom's cooking (and other yummy yummy fried goodness occasionally).
Now that I no longer smoke, I enjoy boxing classes and Bikram yoga to unwind and de-stress. These have changed my life.
I tend to gravitate towards people who laugh often and smile big. It's contagious and good for the soul.
My batting song would probably be....... I'm not sure. This song choice would probably change pretty frequently though. It would switch between songs that are borderline diva-ish or those that would be played at Bench and Bar (bonus points if you know what that is).
I want to see the world (who doesn't?). I've traveled some, but have barely scratched the surface on places I'd love to visit.
Basically, I'd like to meet someone that I can share all the good and bad with. That's what it's all about, isn't it?
I'm also trying something outside of my day job that I hope will eventually become a full-time thing... Regardless if it works or not, I absolutely love it.
Also, does over-ordering or cooking too much count? I think this might be the result of my upbringing. We were always afraid there wasn't going to be enough food for everyone or, God forbid, someone might still be hungry. I have yet to learn how to cook for one...
1) I love music (who doesn't? That's like saying you don't like puppies and babies); but I am horrible at remembering names and songs. Pandora is my music lifeline.
2) I love watching movies (in the theater, on the couch, in my bed). But I will NEVER watch a scary movie, so please don't ask.
Food: As much as I love food and trying different cuisines, my mom's cooking will always be #1. (I don't like the term "Foodie." It implies that I take food seriously, which I don't. If you're fortunate enough to be in a position to enjoy it, food experiences should always be fun and lighthearted.)
Shows: Breaking Bad, Orange is the New Black, Sherlock, House of Cards, Luther, Family Guy, Cleveland Show (earlier episodes), Sons of Anarchy, Bob's Burgers..... (Basically anything available on Hulu and Netflix).
Books: I love to read.
1) Lip balm
2) Chai Tea (with milk and sugar-not a chai tea latte)
3) Occasional slow mornings (that sometimes turn into lazy days)
4) Tessa, my English Bullie...
5) Good food and wine
6) A full night of sleep
Not too long ago, an iPhone would have made it on this list. After losing it on day 1 of a month long trip in Asia a little while back, I discovered I could survive without one. Gasp!
Recently single/divorced need not apply... I just think it takes time to heal... And jumping back into the dating scene isn't the best way to handle that.
By the way, you have to like dogs. Tessa will pretty much like you instantly...
