Laughter is the best medicine! I try not to take myself too seriously. Life is much better when you can laugh about anything and everything. I enjoy the occasional clever dry humor and tasteful sarcasm.
Dancing Latin music is one of my favorite hobbies! My partner does NOT have to be a dancing savant. If you are smiling and generally having a good time in the dance floor, regardless of whether you have any idea of what you are doing, I would consider the night a success!
I really enjoy dinning out and experiencing various cuisines. I love traveling, seeing new places and cultures. I love immersing myself in the culture and scenery of every place that i visit. From enjoying mouthwatering beer and sausages in Vienna, to the breath taking sight of Dubrovnik's sunrise, exploring the ruins of Machu Pichu, or more locally whale watching in Boston's harbor to wine tasting in Sonoma California. Variety is the spice of life!
I am very easy going and flexible, I enjoy everything from a night out to a quiet evening enjoying pizza and a good movie or enjoying a conversation while taking a long walk around a park.
I love to watch sports, especially college football, college basketball, NFL (GO SKINS!), soccer, and MMA (UFC). I am a University of Maryland graduate. GO TERPS! haha.. Cowboys and Duke fans No Need Apply :)
Balance is the cardinal rule to which I try to live my life. I am looking to meet someone smart and interesting, a independent thinker who is not afraid to voice her views but tempers her opinions with a humble respect to dissenting views. I value a person who is honest and courageously truthful. I am looking for someone who is driven by a sense of purpose whether professional or hobbies, but not solely defined by it! A person who works to live, NOT live to work. Finally, someone who is loving, caring, and affectionate. Love and affection should never be taken for granted, it should be cherished and given freely because life is too short not to let the meaningful people in our lives know that they matter to us.
I really like Micro-breweries: Gordon Biersch. Rock Bottom. I love having long walks.
There isn't specific food that I love, because I like a variety different cuisines including: Italian, Greek, French, Spanish, Peruvian, Indian, Thai, Moroccan, Japanese, Korean, etc... this list can go on forever!
I have a very broad taste for movies. Everything from foreign films to your mainstream blockbuster.
Or.. I could be drinking and dancing at any of the Latin nightclubs in DC, or maybe just drinking at some microbrewery while catching up with friends.
If its football season (NFL or College) or College Basketball season I could also be found at any bar cheering for my team!
And finally on occasion, a quiet evening at the Bookstore drinking hot chocolate reading or having a conversation with a friend is not uncommon. It all depends!
