I have lived in Chicago for nine years with a six year stint of living in New York City. Having grown up in the Midwest, I consider myself a Midwesterner with New York (East Coast?) sensibilities and am a big city person.
My personality is self-assured, sensitive, strong-willed, spunky, sexy and smart. I enjoy helping people and, as I grow older, consider compassion to be one of the most important human qualities. Down-to-earth and personable, I exude lots of energy and am very articulate and opinionated. As a Type A person, I am not laid back. Generally I approach life with tremendous optimism, gratitude and a positive attitude. Fortunately, I have wonderful friends and family. Professionally, I enjoy working in a few businesses. I have a great life and would love to share the ups and downs of life with someone special.
A true extrovert, I enjoy lively, intelligent and frivolous discussions, and engage quite easily in intimate, one-on-one conversation. My personality is versatile. I can enjoy a night out on the town and am also comfortable staying in and watching a movie. I prefer being "dressed up" and am not really a "jeans and t-shirt person." For fun, I love trying different cuisines, art museums, travel (international and domestic), movies, reading mostly non-fiction and magazines, networking and being with friends. I probably am guilty of not taking advantage of everything our great city has to offer. I am very fit, working out regularly with spinning, yoga, weight lifting and circuit training.
I seek a long--term relationship with palpable physical attraction, passion, some overlapping interests and similar goals. If you are socially conservative and/or very religious, we are probably not compatible. You should be reasonably fit, ambitious, somewhat intellectual, socially adept, commital and fun. Most importantly, you are reliable, consistent and have integrity.
While I don't follow sports (maybe until the end of the season) I can certainly appreciate most sporting events without complaint.
Good luck in your search.
