Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This will sound strange, but people who know me describe me as both
relaxed and intense; easy-going and high energy. Yes, those are
oxymoronic adjectives, but it works for me.
I am equally at ease screaming on a roller coaster (preferably
wooden) or cuddling and quitely watching a sunset.

Mostly I eat healthy (primarily vegetarian, with a major weak spot
for burgers) and am a competent cook with most things, and
excellent with a few. There is always pizza when results are
inedible. Kitchen chores are a wonderful shared activity.
I firmly believe that attraction lies between the ears and
everything else is frosting.
I value differences, and have taken to heart the quote, "If two
people agree on everything, one of them isn't necessary".
I am honest, courteous, and intelligent
