I'm a social worker, USO and Red Cross volunteer, novice hiker, shooting enthusiast, aunt/godmother, bibliophile, displaced Jersey girl, world traveler, Philadelphia Eagles fan, hopeless romantic, and all-around bad-ass chick.
The extended version:
Originally from South Jersey and moved to Colorado in 2009 for graduate school. I love it here but I miss my beach something fierce. I can be a total girly-girl and love getting dressed up but I also don't mind putting on some hiking boots and going exploring or heading out to the shooting range.
Traveling and experiencing new things are probably two of the things I love the most. My passport has stamps from Ireland, Germany, England, Belgium, the Netherlands, Bosnia, Hungary, the Czech Republic, and Greece and I can't wait to add more to it. I love road trips and a perfect day would be hopping in the car, driving a few hours, and exploring some place new.
As far as relationships go, I don't need a guy in my life but I want a guy in my life and there's a big difference between the two. Ultimately, I want the butterflies and that smile that can come over your face when you see your significant other after a long day. I want someone who can make me laugh when I'm sad or having a crappy day; someone who wants to travel the world with me as my best friend and adventure buddy; who's open-minded, challenges me, and makes me want to be a better person; and who isn't afraid to stick around to work through the not-so-good times.
