I am originally from Massachusetts, but due to my work (I’m a zookeeper), I have lived in South Dakota, Texas (twice) and Florida (twice). However, I am very happy with Tampa. Surprisingly, I haven’t spent much time at the beach, but I do enjoy shelling, conversation, and – a new discovery – conch bites.
As I am an only child, my friends are my family. I remain very close friends with people I knew in elementary school as well as those I've met at various internships throughout the years. Because of this, I've learned to appreciate them, and understand what it means to be a friend. I am a supremely positive and upbeat person. A moody, petulant high school outlook is so 2001.
I love going to the movies; I love curling up on the couch and watching television; I love reading. I work outside, so I am always up for any outdoor activity - that's kind of the point of living in Florida. I would love to have a lot in common with whomever I am dating, but we need not be carbon copies or anything like that. I think it would be great if we could expose each other to new ideas and activities as well. I like animals - I have three cats and I work at a zoo - so it's kind of a prereq that whomever I date is cool with animals.
I'm super organized, I'm clean, I don't do drugs or smoke, and I think I'm pretty great, but not to the point where I throw a parade every day. If you know what Myers-Briggs is, I'm an ENFJ.
