As much as I can thrive in social situations, I cherish my time alone. Love my job and have the time of my life every single day. I'm a generally relaxed person and find myself constantly laughing (for so many different reasons). I love being outside, near the water and staying active. Yoga and soccer most frequently these days but my interests range from triathlons to flag football and all sorts of random bits in between.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I really want to fall deeply and madly in love... And while I'd be
ecstatic to meet that person now, I'm willing to wait for the real
You should message me if
you are educated, driven, with a witty sense of humor. I need someone who can keep up, dish the banter right back, and will challenge me in all ways.
I don't like shitty, ignorant, or dishonest people - if you are willing to compromise your virtues to get ahead in life you can fuck off. If you're white and you don't understand systemic white supremacy or your privilege, I just can't. And I'm not sorry. Homophobic slurs as a part of your everyday vernacular? No thanks.
