I'm a complex individual who's grown up in many different worlds. I travel to France often to visit my parents and I put myself through college. I'm very down to earth but I love a good adventure. I hike, backpack, cycle, run and spend much of my free time outdoors. I love the feeling of hiking deep into wilderness, where few ever go and gaze upon the vistas. There is an indescribable feeling that makes me feel so alive in that moment.
I love development work and volunteering. I'll occasionally go to a retirement home to give others company, to dance with old ladies and give those with no visitors a sense of belonging. I love to spread joy. I used to volunteer with refugees in helping them get jobs.
Don't get me wrong, as much as I'm outgoing, I love to be a homebody too and cuddle up with a book... Or a glass of whiskey and water.
If you're a girl who is smart, can hold a conversation, enjoys the arts as much as they enjoy the bar scene, can dress up as much as she enjoys getting down and dirty. Please message me. I'd love to meet you.
I enjoy meeting new people and building friendships. I am not looking for a one-night stand. I only become intimate with someone that I have a more meaningful relationship (Ie, I don't hook up with randoms, people who are flaky or exhibit bad qualities of friendship, I want to like someone more than just their body before I fool around with them). Intimacy is important to me, but it doesn't mean I just go out giving tickets to ride. I hope you can see the value in that, if not, tough shit for you.
