I am an introspective, psychologically oriented person. I am interested in people and like to figure out what makes people tick. I have a psychology degree, but never did anything with it, as I am not really the therapist type. (I do accounting now). But I do find people fascinating.
In terms of personality I am generally seen as reserved and quiet, but with the right person or people I can be outgoing and silly. I'm not a big party type of girl, preferring rather small get togethers with a few good friends to hang out and play party games (Cards Against Humanity is my current favorite).
Some things I like to do include: taking walks by the lake or in urban parks, hanging out in the city on a beautiful day, dining al fresco on warm summer night, going to get George's ice cream in Andersonville on said warm summer night, eating Gulliver's pizza, (best deep dish in Chicago, in my opinion of course), playing party games (as I mentioned before), playing tennis and ping pong, reading (mostly fiction), going to Broadway musicals, and the usual stuff like going out to eat and movies. I am passionate about the color purple, and I love cats as well.
I am looking for someone intelligent, kind, and caring with whom I can intellectually, emotionally, and physically connect. And someone who can be goofy, make me laugh, and with whom I can have fun. And someone who is complex, introspective, interesting and can talk about random, silly stuff as well as heavy stuff. And it is a plus if you get bothered when people use the subjective form of the pronoun as the object of a verb or preposition. (Yes, I am kind of a grammar geek). And you can be slightly nerdy and unconventional, as I feel I am in some ways.
