I think what stands out about me most is my gigantic heart (this has proved to be a positive and negative for me throughout my life, but generally it's been a good thing) Also, I am very genuine (not to be confused with the rapper Ginuwine). I find it really easy meeting new people and am SO fascinated by them. I love hearing peoples' stories! I value close friendships more than acquaintances. I am obsessed with music. I don't like cell phones at the dinner table. I like the idea of writing handwritten letters. I love drinking wine and having amazing conversations. Laughing is probably the most awesome and important thing in the world -- I swear it can get you through pretty much anything. I grew up overseas, so I value traveling in a big way, I get WAY too excited about food. Like, seriously, WAY too excited about food.... I could discuss the awesomeness of cheese for hours. I have not been in Oregon for very long so I am excited to see more of this amazing state and meet some new people!
I am so grateful for the amazing life I have and I would be delighted to find someone to share it with. It's hard to make a list of "what I want in a guy" because it is all so much more complicated than that! So much of chemistry and being attracted to someone involves actually meeting them and experiencing the awesomeness that happens when you are together. I do have a couple things I absolutely need in a partner - Intelligence is one of the sexiest things in the whole wide world! I don't care what your job is, but if you are damn good at it, that is a big turn on for me. I love someone who has a passion for helping others -- heart goes a long way with me. Confidence is always important: if you are not comfortable and happy with yourself, no relationship is going to work out! Life is crazy and busy, so I value someone that enjoys making time for taking in the small amazing things life has to offer or going on an impromptu trip! Family is very important to me, so it would be lovely if my "match" also shared this quality! This is becoming a rambling mess, so I will stop there for now. Hope to hear from you!
