*Let's kick this party off by saying that I view myself as both stable in my career, and overall very goal-oriented.
*I enjoy making people laugh. "Did you hear the one about the convict who had an allergy? ...He broke out!!"
*I (like to think I) am intelligent and can carry on meaningful conversations. I mean, "I'm very important. I have many leather-bound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany" (name the movie "classic" without the Google assist)!
*If you think the best flavor of girl scout cookies is anything but Samoa then we might be doomed from the start...
*I feel there has to be mutual physical appeal for there to be good chemistry between two people. So that means fitness and an attractive appearance are important qualities to me in a person (trust me, I know this goes both ways).
*Having some similar interests helps–like fine dining (foodie in training), walking on the beach at night (cheesy but true!), dancing (like nobody's watching), catching movies, travelling, lifting/running races, trips to local hot spots, romantic nights at home, and having an overall blast together. . .
I'm a huge proponent of being physically active, be it lifting, running, playing sports, hiking, or essentially anything that gets ya movin' and your heart rate pumpin', and I'm hoping to find a person who shares a similar passion! I do the occasional 5K or Mud Run when friends are going and I've got a free weekend, so if you're into that scene I'd love to join ya (got a Goruk Challenge, half-marathon, and some Tough Mudders under my belt now)!
I've been fortunate enough to have been given opportunities to travel to a variety of places both around the US and abroad, but there're still tons of spots I wanna check out and take in! Looking for someone who shares similar views as the world is a big place and there's so much to see!
I'm an avid subscriber in the "glass half-full" and "everything happens for a reason" philosophies and try to do all I can to find the positive spin on whatever situation arises as things could always be far worse. I attempt to live everyday as though it ended with an exclamation point, because, well, life is exciting!! I hope to come across someone who shares a similar attitude, as it really does make all the difference in how you approach things.
Taking in music is a pretty big part of my life, whether it be live at a show, blasting through speakers at home, or pumping through the headphones at the gym. I'm into most everything from EDM to Punk, Hip-Hop to Jazz, Rock to Pop. I'm a total sucker for someone who knows her stuff when it comes to being passionate about her tunes.
I'm looking for someone who can push me towards striving for greatness and for me to bring about those same feelings in her. A woman who carries an intensity and passion in both work and play, but at the same time knows when it's time to kick back and relax as things wind down. Spontaneity and humor are huge turn-ons, so it'd be great to meet someone who's comfortable with herself and the art of sarcasm. You also must be A-OK dating a guy who more than occasionally feels the need to sing along to tunes in the car (bonus points for joining in)!
PS: It REALLY helps if you're a fan of pizza. Grilled chicken, fruit, protein shakes, and veggies may get me through the week, but I LIVE for the occasional slice or three (just kidding....maybe).
