Corpus Christi born and raised. And, yes, I do love my city and the people in it. I believe in romance and taking the time to get to know someone. I love hanging out with my friends. Talking and laughing. Just so you know, my friends are woven into the fabric of who I am. I love to read and learn. Watch movies and TV. I love watching and playing basketball. I also like watching football. Been watching UFC for years. I'm a spiritual person that has no need for organized religion. I enjoy meditation and long spiritual discussions. I also enjoy going to local concerts and art shows. So, as much as I like going out, I am comfortable being a home body, too.
I'm looking for the same in someone. A woman that is down to earth and easy to get along with. Enjoys technology and keeps up with current events.
I'm also staying active. Trying to eat better. I've hit a plateau with losing weight.
My favorite band right now is The Bright Light Social Hour. They're a rock band out of Austin. And, I love them. Me and my friends go to their shows every time they come down here. We rock out like we're at the biggest concert. [Note: If you ever go to one of their shows, please have Detroit memorized. I'm usually screaming the lyrics with my friends.]
And, yes, all this happens in Corpus Christi, Texas. :)
