I'm just an ordinary girl living an extraordinary life. :) I'm a veterinarian and I absolutely love my job, but it's definitely not the only thing I'm passionate about.
I was born and raised in Tempe, Arizona, and have lived all over the US for vet school, internship, and residency. I've traveled internationally many times, but never lived abroad prior to my move to Asia. In fact, I'd never stepped foot in Asia until the day I moved here! It's been an amazing adventure so far and I love my new city.
I play acoustic guitar and write songs. I will do anything for a friend. I am a kid at heart. I am sometimes overwhelmed by all the possibilities the future holds. I've written a full-length novel and am most of the way through a new one, the latter of which I am fully planning to publish in the near future. I am partial to New Belgium beers, Rieslings, Moscow mules, and dirty martinis...but I'll try almost anything. :) I overuse smiley faces ;) and ellipses.............and am otherwise obsessive about good grammar.
I love (in no particular order): Sunny, breezy days; windchimes; hot tubs; boats of any kind; sushi; spicy food; holding hands; laughing hysterically; inside jokes; Caribbean vacations; lazy days watching movies (especially with someone special, preferably cuddling while watching said movies); roller coasters; exploring places; instant chemistry!
There's way more to me than that. :) But it's a start!
I am looking for a guy who's intelligent (above all!), liberal or at least open-minded, and who will keep me on my toes! He should also be passionate...about life, his career, his hobbies, at least something! Bonus points for musicians, writers, political junkies, hockey lovers, world travelers, science nerds, animal lovers, and hot tattoos. Eloquence in writing and/or speaking is a major turn-on. Egregious grammatical errors are not.
Basically, I'm looking for my best friend...who I can't keep my hands off. ;) Be sexy, be smart, and be adventurous!
PS - I realize I've written an essay-bordering-on-novella here. Just blame it on my boundless enthusiasm. :)
PPS - I see an awful lot of profiles on here that are reasonably well-written but are incredibly negative and sarcastic. Dudes, we're all here because it's effing hard to meet someone in the real world. If you spend your whole profile talking about how stupid the questions are or answering with sarcastic non-responses because you're so above it all, you just totally come off like an arrogant asshole. Buck up and own your fabulous internet dating self. I know I do.
Movies: I would love to say that I love artsy independent films, but, alas, I hate them. Some of my all-time faves are Jurassic Park, Good Will Hunting, The Holiday, and Love Actually.
Shows: House of Cards, Breaking Bad, Dexter, True Blood, OITNB, Entourage, House, The Mindy Project...need I go on?
Music: I'll listen to almost anything, especially if I can sing along. I was brought up on classics like James Taylor and Paul Simon, so I am kind of a flower child at heart. :)
Food: I think I was born to live in Asia. Love anything spicy, with Indian, Thai, and sushi being very high on the list. Currently in the midst of a recent but probably life-long love affair with Sichuan peppercorns. I'm about as adventurous as it gets when it comes to food. Pass the chicken feet my way; I'll try anything!
(Also, hint: I love it when guys are adventurous with this too. It's so much fun going out and trying new things together. Let's go get our asses kicked by some spicy crab or chef's-choice sushi boat. Down?)
My pets (a dog and two kitties)
A computer or other writing implement!
