Where am I from? Texas
What do I do? Work in international development
Where do I live? Lanier Heights/Adams Morgan
Now that that’s out of the way, I just turned 30, and all my friends are getting married, so I need a “plus one.” Really though, I’m glad I’ve moved on from my 20s and the work/gym/club gerbil wheel to get to the point in life where I am seriously ready to consider what I really want out of life, and right now that means a relationship built on respect, honesty, shared values, and comfort with one another. Whether that lasts a month or a lifetime is TBD, but quality of character and personality come before f*ckability, though the latter doesn’t hurt, of course. ;)
I’m a grammar Nazi, self-declared and proud of it, and since I said that I know there will be an error or two in my profile. Please be nice and don’t judge too harshly for it.
I've been told I have all-American, boy next door looks, but looks can be deceiving, and no, I'm not Mormon. That picture is from Halloween.
Also, I am an extreme introvert, which means it's not that I don't like you or are not having fun, I just need some space.
