Like everyone here, I'd like to meet someone I resonate with. I've been pretty work-focused the past years and each new professional rung ain't got nothin on laughing till I'm crying, exploring or adventuring with a partner or sharing the time with someone who feels like home. I want that. I hate the saying, but I do think you know when the chemistry is there -- then you know for sure when you can navigate life together.
I like a pretty good balance of serious and play, to be healthy and stay active (distance running and yoga are my standard choices but I'll do most anything active -- bike, hike, snowboard, swim, etc). I enjoy traveling -- both for work and not.
Like-mindedness is important, but challenging my thinking is quite welcome -- heated arguments not so much. Most of all, I think it's important to have passion, compassion, a drive, personal compass, curiousity and respect for others -- oh, and laughter. My family regularly ends up laughing so hard we are all in tears...this, I love.
