Texas gal living it up in the city and trying to find her way in life. I work hard, play hard and have a great time with some really awesome friends. A little therapy and some introspection are constants in my life that keep me sane. I like my independence and don't mind being alone. I like a challenge but am often too hard on myself. I don't judge people but do have certain expectations. Friends would claim that I am outgoing, loyal and dedicated. I will also admit to being pretty neurotic about certain things...like being somewhere on time, my DVR, and the organization of my closet (helllooo--short sleeves and long sleeves do not co-mingle). I absolutely HATE fake people; just don't even waste my time. I have a thing for cleaning and organizing and you will most often find me doing those things when I am stressed. I can't stand people that don't have any sort of work ethic: I don't care what you do and I don't judge, but do it like you mean it.
I was once told that I have 'biting sarcasm'...and I took it as a compliment. I enjoy a great sense of humor laced with wit and intelligence. Laughing is in my nature but I can also be serious when the situation calls for it. But I am definitely the first to laugh at myself (for some reason I am one of those people that trips and falls a lot) and really try not to take things too seriously.
I am an Air Force brat so I adapt easily to change and typically on the move. I like stability to a point but tire easily with the mundane and the boredom that typically follows. I am a sagittarius...wanderlust and independence...so blame the stars.
I have opinions and voice them but am willing to always listen to the other side. I can be feisty about the things I like and want but not to the point of exclusion. A lot of times I am called ‘one of the guys’ but can be quite girly as well. (High heels are a girl’s best friend!)
I am trying my hand at running and biking and actually thoroughly enjoy it! I also love to fish! I can sit for hours and I still get excited every single time I catch something. (Sticks and turtles included) I also love to travel. I love the history and experiences of new things. I lived in Europe for three years and would jump at the chance to live there again. I already have my NYC and beach trips booked for the summer. I might also have to admit to enjoying the movies and reality TV. (I am an Amazing Race fan) I love my Spurs and Cowboys. (Yes, I said Cowboys) I enjoy a good Irish bar and when the mood strikes I love to dance---80s are always a good way to go. And I love me a good board game!
I am looking for someone to challenge me mentally and physically. I want to find a co-explorer and adventurer...there is a ton of stuff I want to learn about, try and experience. I need someone I can rely on and trust...this is a big one for me...honesty will get you a long way in my book. I like responsible people but don't need someone so serious. Lighten up and have fun!! I usually pass on the ‘class clown’ types and prefer quick wit and an endearing personality. I firmly believe in mutual respect and understanding; I am not perfect and I need my guy to realize he isn’t perfect either. (Well, unless you are Ed Norton…I am pretty sure he is perfect) I love my family and they are a part of my life and prefer someone to enjoy those moments with me. And I totally don't mind dating someone with kids..but you can't right me off simply because I don't have any of my own.
