Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Heyo, well here we are.
The basics: i am an introverted extrovert that trends active,
adventurous and always on the go. I love the life I have and I am
looking for someone to enjoy it with and who can give me a good
reason to slow things down a bit. Is that you?
I work in international development and am blessed to get to travel
all over the world. It's a great career, but it would be great to
find someone to help me balance the crazy with equally cool and fun
I lean politically left. Social justice, equality and respect for
difference is important to me.
I like to stay busy most of the time. I am fairly athletic and try
to do some sort of physical activity several times each week. I am
slightly addicted to crossfit. Tried rock climbing for the first
time -- holy fun! that being said, there is always a place for a
lazy saturday or sunday afternoon on the couch.
That's me. Now for you.
I am looking for someone that likes to have fun, can make me smile,
and can keep me entertained! I am looking for someone dependable
and loyal, yet spontaneous and willing to buck routines.
Conventional yet unconventional. All the better if you want to cook
with me and drink an adult beverage.
