So, I'm back for another foray into online dating.
I'm a well adjusted, energetic woman who enjoys being active. I love my work, traveling, and trying new things.
Though my career is very important to me, I realize that pursuing outside interests, people and places are all paramount to a happy life. I'm honest, dependable and loyal, which has gotten me into trouble in the past since I expect the same out of others around me.
I have to talk about my dogs next--I have THREE golden retrievers. They mean the world to me, so if you don't like dogs, move on now. The dog hair is inevitable but I keep a clean house. They are incredibly friendly and happy dogs, and attack on command only.
I work out quite a lot. I think it's important to take care of yourself, and usually manage to work up a sweat every day. This girl's got some muscle, so be prepared. I enjoy bike riding, hiking, snowshoeing, swimming - pretty much anything outdoors. I started CrossFit a few months ago, and can see what all the fuss is about. It's pretty much the shit. Don't ask me about it unless you really want to know.
I grew up on a horse farm and had horses until I was forced to sell them a few years ago. I showed a bit hunter/jumper, but my true love was taking off for the morning down the trails.
I also like to go out for drinks with friends, dinner parties, spending time with my family; nothing beats a movie night at home.
I love to travel--I've been to Hawaii, Bermuda, Costa Rica, most of the Caribbean and around Europe. I visited Italy, France, and Spain. Additionally, I've been all over the US and parts of Canada.
I'd love to travel outside of the country more, and hope to meet someone who would like to explore new places with me.
I'm strong and independent, and looking for someone who shares those characteristics. Someone with a good sense of humor, as well, and looking to hang out and have some fun.
I'll read just about anything that's recommended to me.
I recently read World War Z, which primed me for the Walking Dead midseason premier. I also enjoyed Time Traveler's Wife, Hunger Games, etc. I love to read, and can spend hours with a book.
An American Horror Story
I don't make much time for television. I have Netflix, which has enabled me to catch up on some of the shows I always hear people talking about. In general, I'd rather read a book or watch movies.
I'll watch anything zombie-related. The whole apocolypse thing had me a bit excited. Gotta be prepared. Soak up the intel.
I'll watch action, drama, comedy. My sister dragged me to the newest Nicholas Sparks flick and it was terrible. Does HE even like his movies?
I'm not a very picky eater, I'll try most things once. Favorite foods are pretty much anything Italian, and I eat a lot of chicken. I tend to eat on the healthier side. You won't catch me at McDonalds or Dairy Queen. Salads are a staple.
