I'm looking for a friend and potential life partner to do fun, adventurous, and spontaneous things with. I like to exercise 5-6 times a week. My friends would describe me as loyal, hard working and fun to be around. I would like to meet a woman who is secure with herself emotionally as well as physically and who will take me for who I am. For the most part, I'm relaxed, secure, and comfortable with who I am--with a bit of stubbornness (to pay homage to my Irish roots). I've been working at the same non-profit HMO for the last eight years. I enjoy what I do and intend to stay here as long as I can. I'm a former professional cook who still enjoys cooking for friends and family. Do you like Italian food? Putanesca is a favorite. I'm what you would call a binger when it comes to reading books. I'll read 3 or 4 in a row and then take a break. History is a favorite. I'm in between books at the moment. Hmm, what to read next?! What books do you like to read? I hope to hear back from you, whoever you are. Maybe we'll click.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Hmmm, let's get to know each other first then we'll talk.

You can email me if you want to know more and you feel like we're a good match. OKC says I'm less independant. Nothing could be further from the truth. Sometimes this website doesn't work well
