I'm pretty social but I can also cocoon at home. I like to hang out with the people I love and try to make them a priority. My family is very important to me and I visit with them whenever I'm can. My friends are spread out across the country, but I try to see the locals regularly.
I like all kinds of dancing, although I'm pretty basic when it comes to Latin or swing. I have never seriously dated anyone who really liked to dance, so don't worry if dancing isn't your forte.
I also like hiking, and eating (who doesn't lol). My average Sunday starts by going to the farmer's market early and then taking a 8+ mile hike. Ideally I'd like to find a hiking buddy, because I love being out in nature and my family often walks. Beware: if a member if my family asks if you would like to take a walk, they are likely expecting to be out for 2+ hours lol.
I like to cook, but I tend to make my staples a lot. When I go out to eat, I love ethnic food! Indian and Thai are at the top of my list but I also love sushi, Ethiopian, and Vietnamese. I'm an adventurous eater and will try almost anything.
My all time favorite thing to do, is to travel the world (cheaply) and mingle with the locals. I tend to want to go places with unique wildlife and lots of opportunities for adventures. My favorite trip so far was to Madagascar, because the animals were amazing and super accessible. I loved traveling around South America too, although if I went back I'd spend more time in the jungle and pampas. I hope future trips include: Africa (I want to see the big 5 before its too late), Australia (the outback and the reef), Indonesia and the list goes on and on.
I am looking for an easy going partner who enjoys life and shares similar interests. I am not religious and I'm not looking for anyone to convert me. I have no problem with spirituality but belief in evolution is a MUST. Although I enjoy going to a game once in awhile, I prefer to watch anything other than sports on tv. I'm mainly looking for someone I connect to and I enjoy being around.
I haven't done the internet dating thing before... but hopefully I'll meet someone nice :)
