I joined this site to meet someone great and basically go from there; I’ve had some friends who had really good luck with the whole online dating thing so I figured I should give it a shot. ;)
A little about me: I really enjoy anything having to do with the outdoors; hiking, camping, sailing, diving, snowboarding… you name it. Anytime I can get outside even for a quick run it makes me happy. Oh and I love to cook! Just saying… I’m not going to lie… pretty darn good at it ;) I’ve always considered myself a world traveler too so whenever I return from a new destination I like to try my hand at cooking all their dishes.
I’m also a bit of a nerd, and proud of it! Lol! I grew up loving sci-fi and fantasy and really anything creative, artistic or different. And yes… I still watch a few choice cartoons, haha! Family guy, Futurama and Adventure Time just to name a few (and some anime)... can’t go wrong with Harry Potter either...
Oh and going along with being a bit of a nerd I really love going to events where I can dress up so Comic-con, EDM Shows, Buccaneer Days on Catalina or the Renn fair all allow me to take a big group of friends out for some silly festive fun and tasty food/beers :) I don’t take any of it too seriously and just love acting like a goofball in costume.
I also really love what I do for a living; I currently work for a global NPO heading up one of their International Finance divisions. I get the opportunity to speak with different people from all around the world all the time and since the company does a lot of good I feel rewarded at the end of the day. It’s a nice feeling knowing that the hum drum of some days pays off by really helping people who need it.
Now let’s see… who am I trying to meet? Lol
It’d be nice to meet someone that I just really click with; someone I could either go out on an adventure with or just stay in watching something on the couch cuddled up. I grew up on the east coast so I still believe chivalry is important and I’m usually attracted to women with confidence and self-respect; intelligence and a warm/fun personality helps a lot too. Not really into fakeness, rudeness or ignorance though, I tend to find a lot of that in bars so I’ve given up on meeting someone there.
Be real and be yourself and I’ll probably think you’re terrific!
