Well. You. Are. In. Luck.
I grew up around Seattle, and love the Pacific Northwest.
I have a very close group of friends that are mostly from rowdy college days (UW) and with a firm concentration on career and a lot of friends settling down the exposure to new people is getting less frequent. Wherein I find myself here.
But most importantly; I'm left handed, I'm trying to learn to enjoy raw tomatoes and mushrooms, and I'm an idealist. In general I try to take life as it comes.
I would say "must love dogs", but maybe love is a bit strong. I would hope you'd have a strong like of the canine species. I do believe that the way someone interacts with dogs says a lot about them and how they are with other people. Not that its always a foolproof social barometer (since who doesn't smile if they see a puppy) but it can normally hint in the right direction.
I try not to take life completely serious and would hope that you'd be similar. I know it's a slippery slope towards apathy, but being able to laugh about tough situations is something I've learned about myself that I would also like to find in a partner. I realize that saying this might make it sound like I don't take anything seriously, but that is not true... mostly not true. I think it's more about constantly trying to find the way to be an adult and retain some playfulness at the same time.
To kind of put a little summary here: I hope to meet someone that challenges me as much as I challenge her. While it doesn't need to be "you complete me" the sentiment is lovely and the prospect of a partnership that grows out of mutual respect, chemistry and a sense of acknowledging each other's uniqueness is a wonderful thing to imagine on the horizon.
