My self-summary
I'm an ENFP on the Myers Briggs, which means that I tend to be the last one to show up at a party, as well as the last one to leave. I'm enthusiastic and an extrovert. I wear my heart on my sleeve and am pretty much an open book.

I tend to be attracted to introverts, but to be honest, that has created some challenges in my relationships. I can be just getting geared up in the evening when they're wanting to wind down.

I have several close friends, including former boyfriends.

I love to cook and feed people - and make mealtime special. Nothing makes me happier than seeing my boyfriend enjoy eating something I've made. What can I say, I'm Italian.

In fact, I'm an Italian citizen - I have dual citizenship - and one of my greatest accomplishments is having tracked down relatives in Italy and Sicily that we had lost contact with for a long time.

I'm very close to my family, and still haven't given up on the possibility of adopting children. I want to make lasagna for a house full of people! In the meantime, I'm considering housing and feeding students who are studying abroad. I would love that.
I call my mom in Ohio (that's where I grew up) when I am cooking so that she can walk me through her way of making things. My dad died about 5 years ago.

I love to travel, and I'm also a homebody.

I have ADD, which makes me easily distractible, but also energetic, smart and a lot of fun.

I like being active - playing sports and spending time outdoors. I love Walden Pond and the beach.

I'm a musical theater fan. Saw Next to Normal three times and cried through it each time.

Relationships and meaningful work - along with exercise, yoga, healthy food, an optimistic attitude, a sense of humor and a good night's sleep - are the ingredients for a happy life, and those are my priorities.

Look forward to hearing from you!
