Personality-wise: Driven, but low-key. Genuine. Mature. Pretty nerdy, but not lacking in social skills. Reliable. Curious. Feminist. Sense of humor is fairly goofy, I think. Someone once described me as a "gentle soul," which I thought was nice. I think of myself as an old soul, certainly.
In relationships, I tend to be affectionate and open with my feelings and I like people who are similar in both respects. Looking for a long-term relationship with someone whom I'd consider my best friend--someone who wants to build a life together and to share all the ups and downs that comes with that. I'm at a great place in my life where I enjoy being single, but am ready to be in a serious relationship with the right person.
Some things I like:
--Quality film, television, and books, and discussing all of the above over a good beer.
--Games and puzzles of all sorts. I especially like modern board games, the NYT Crossword, and twisty puzzles (as pictured.)
--Going on adventures around the city: food tours, pub trivia, softball/kickball/bocce teams, etc.
--Spending time outdoors. I'm always up for a camping trip or a nice day hike, and I really love being near or on water. After moving to Seattle, though, I realize that I'm not nearly as outdoorsy as I thought I was! Some of you all are intense.
