I love my family, friends, and travel. Those are the top three. My house and work round out the top five, I guess. :-)
I am definitely looking for someone who is able to commit. I know it is hard in a place like DC—with so many interesting, engaging, talented people—to stop looking for the next guy. But if you are always thinking about trading in for a new model, how can you focus on making what you have the best it can be? Relationships are hard, and both guys need to be in the right place. I want someone who is in the same ballpark I am. [BTW, the Red Sox, 2013 World Series Champions!!!!]
I also have come to put a huge premium on guys with an optimistic, positive outlook. It seems like—and this might totally be induced by me, LOL—a lot of guys I go out with are either jaded or (worse) bitter. If you aren't going to come to a date bringing enthusiasm and interest, then why even bother?!
Thanks for reading!
