I am talkative, loyal and very much a people person. That being said, I love to let out my sarcastic and (I like to think) intelligent sense of humor. I enjoy good conversation and learning what others are passionate about.
I am easy-going, compassionate and get along with most everyone. However, my pet peeves are lack of manners, rudeness, disingenuous people and poor grammar. In fact, there is very little I find more unattractive than the inability or unwillingness to distinguish between their, there and they're. Words are neat and so is that feeling of finding that perfect word you were searching for!
The first thing I notice in a woman is a great smile. I'm looking for someone who is up for good conversation, engaging in witty banter, doing outdoorsy and athletic things, watching movies and wants to introduce me to new things. When it comes down to it, I want someone with whom I can unwind and be goofy. A kind heart and a good laugh are a must.
Physical fitness is very important to me. In my free time I enjoy running, cycling and training for triathlons and am passionate about music (both listening to and attempting to play it) as well as traveling and getting out to see the wide world. I lived in Costa Rica and Nicaragua for six amazing months and New Zealand is next on the list. I just got back from my first visit to Europe- a crazy foray through England, Paris and Iceland with my best friend from high school. I like Rockies games, BBQ-ing and camping during the summer and skiing and snowboarding during the winter. At the end of the day I love good food, good books, and a cliche romantic comedy.
