My name is Jen and I live in Portland, I have a good job and enjoy time with my friends and family. I work in higher education and am actually thinking of taking some classes to further solidify my career in that field. But enough of the boring stuff.
I enjoy a lot of the normal NW things: camping, fishing, happy hours, going to the coast, and river floats. I have a background in music, so I still teach a few piano and voice lessons, sing at events, and am learning how to play the guitar. I try to work out and stay healthy, but I also like a good IPA and hotwings.
I think if you were to ask my friends what kind of person I am, they would tell you I laugh a lot and enjoy hanging out in groups, but am much better one on one. I'm caring and loving, but also value my alone time. I'm incredibly independent, and sometimes to a fault. I like a man who is kind and who gives compliments, but not all the time. I value old fashioned manners (not looking at your phone at dinner, walking me to my car), but don't need a door held open for me. I do enjoy my open-minded faith community, but am very liberal, so will never, EVER preach. And finally, they would tell you that I'm ready for a meaningful relationship and so am not at a point in which shallow connections are what I'm looking for.
