I live on the North side with my bulldog, Dyllan. I grew up in a Western suburb of Chicago, which is where most of my extended family still lives. I went to school in Michigan and double majored in Business and Psychology.
I am active and enjoy living a healthy lifestyle. I love to run along Lakeshore Drive, go to the beach, workout at FFC, play and watch most sports, and just be outside in the sun. I'm passionate about nutrition, fitness, and enjoy cooking quite a bit. Listening to music, reading, dancing, going to concerts/sporting events, making picnics, drinking red wine, and enjoying good conversation are also some of my favorite activities. Just like most, spending time with family and friends is very important to me as well.
I'm the type of person who looks for the best in people, and I've never been one to hold a grudge. I'm usually smiling and have a pretty happy/positive demeanor. I'm a proactive person. So, if something's not going right, I try and come up with a game plan to fix it, rather than just complain about it.
Nothing brings me more pleasure than seeing people smiling, laughing, and having a good time. I'm very curious about people, ideas, opinions, and life in general. I think it's important to be open to trying new things, visiting new places, and meeting new people. You never know where you're going to learn your next life lesson, or hear an amazing story from a complete stranger.
Who am I looking for in a partner? To be honest, I really don't have a "type." But, I would love to be with someone active, and who can also kick back and have a beer or glass of wine with me. Someone who has confidence, takes initiative, and enjoys listening just as much as talking is very attractive. I also truly appreciate someone who is easygoing and good at going with the flow.
***At the end of the day, I'm looking for someone who when we're together, we bring out the best in each other. I've learned that honesty, patience, respect, humor, compromise, loyalty, and communication are the most important qualities when it comes to sustaining a healthy relationship. Hopefully, this gives you an idea of what I'm all about. More importantly, I'm really excited to meet you and learn what you're all about! ***
