More interesting stuff: I like to ride my bike (slow, but far), training for some upcoming races (10k and half-marathon), love hiking and really enjoy being outdoors in general. I stay active, but also enjoy laying in a hammock or lounging poolside. I love to travel. I've been vegetarian/vegan for over half my life and it works for me, but I don't force my beliefs on others. The taste of dry, white wines makes me happy. I'm a sporty girl - Chicago Bears & New York Yankees are my teams. I will bandwagon ATL teams during a good season, but I support my home teams hands down cuz I'm a Michigan girl at heart.
There are a few deal-breakers: I'm staunchly against smoking and dating married men. Actually, the men I don't mind -- it's the wives that drive me crazy. (Thanks, but no thanks). There are others, but you'll know if you're hitting them. Men always know. Start by saying more than "HI." Just a "Hi" does not merit a response.
So to sum myself up: I'm a multi-racial, health minded girl with an open mind, an easy laugh and a slightly inappropriate sense of humor. I'm open to meeting men from all races and ethnicities. I'm looking for friendship first - it takes time to build intimacy and trust.
Ideally, I'd find a local guy who wants to catch a concert at Chastain, a Braves game, a fair/festival or go on some other adventure. I'm attracted to men who are intelligent, quick-witted and have an appetite for exploration and fun. I am especially attracted to really smart, semi-shy, nerdy types. Men who are smarter than me pique my interest. Tall, funny men who are smarter than me sweep me off my feet! Trust me, if I'm interested, I'll find time to get together.
