I'm a passionate person - passionate about life, traveling, cooking, friends, work, family, going to good restaurants, learning new things, helping others, entertaining...passionate about big things & small things, like mint chocolate chip ice cream, a glass of good wine, or even an awesome kick boxing class. Basically, I put a lot of energy into everything I do - I don't do anything half-ass! And I certainly give 100% to my relationships :)
I'm very organized, I love to plan - trips, dates, parties, birthdays, dinners - not to say I don't like spontaneous adventures too. I'm a giver - love to give my time, advice, gifts, notes. I'm very neat & clean. I like to workout and visit the gym regularly, but I am not a workout freak. I don't like the rain, I am solar powered. I love to visit wine country. Sorry, but I don't ski, snowboard (from the south, no snow!), mountain bike, rock climb - I'm a little clumsy and would prefer to keep all of my teeth...and I'm a girl. I will join on these trips and love to be outdoors. I do like to be on the water, kayak, hike, parasail, wakeboard, toss a frisbee on the beach, and play golf (hopefully you play, too!). I do like sports, especially baseball - very big Giants fan, we'll hopefully have that in common, as I try to go to many games each season!
Things I am looking for....please have a good job, something that you like doing. Be a gentleman, walk me to my car if we meet in Oakland and it's dark. Some handy skills would be nice - or at least man-up & pretend you have some. Enjoy cooking somewhat, especially grilling, I'll do the rest! I think it's fun to do together and host friends. Speaking of friends, be open to hanging out with all kinds of people - I have friends of all types and ages! Be polite to waiters & bartenders. Be silly with me. And want to want to do the dishes. Kidding, who the hell wants to do this dishes?!? Let's just do them together & be done! :)
Having fun, but staying responsible.
Folding laundry & organizing closets.
Planning trips & being a trip advisor.
Being loyal & reliable.
Putting other people first.
Music - so, I love many kinds of music that cover many decades. I need my significant other to at least like country music or not cringe when it's playing. George Strait, Alan Jackson, Alabama. I also love The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Bob Seger, Chicago, Coldplay, Creedence Clearwater, Elton John, Matchbox Twenty, Maroon 5, The Script, Snow Patrol, Steve Miller Band, Tom Petty, One Republic, Train. I am in no way shape or form into rap or techno.
Shows - Dexter, Breaking Bad (both over, I know, but will be all-time favorites), Homeland, House of Cards, anything on HGTV, and yep, I fall victim to watching the Bachelor every season, ugh.
Food - I love food. All kinds. I'm not vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, fat free, sugar free, lactose free, etc. Just no mushrooms please.
2) Eating out at great places.
3) Liking my job & work environment.
4) Wine bars & dive bars.
5) Weekend get-a-ways.
6) Amazing people - my family, friends and a special person to share everything with
