Personality-wise: Driven, but low-key. Genuine. Mature. Pretty nerdy, but not lacking in social skills. Reliable. Honest. Feminist. Sense of humor ranging from deadpan wit to silly goofiness, depending on the day. 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'm very affectionate and open with my feelings and tend to like people who are similar in both respects. Read: I like holding hands in public and I'm not very good at playing it cool. 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.
--Going on adventures around the city: food tours, rooftop parties, karaoke, etc. I recently went to the Pinball Museum, which was awesome, and I'm looking forward to more exploration!
--Games and puzzles of all sorts. I especially like modern board games (think something like Catan or Agricola--not Monopoly), the NYTimes Crossword, and twisty puzzles (as pictured.)
--Spending time outdoors. I'm always up for a nice camping trip or a day hike, and I really love being near or on water. I also play softball and kickball--not well, mind you, but they're nice excuses to get outside.
