I feel fortunate to have lived abroad in England and Thailand (my formative years :) 12-18), while moving several times domestically and traveling the world. Being cognizant of how others live was a huge influence in molding me into who I am today. Right now I enjoy calling Portland home. I come from a very loving family with whom I have and always will be close to. I am seeking a committed relationship and hope to be able to share all of who I am with the right person.
Who I am looking for:
-You are driven and passionate about life
-You know who you are and are comfortable with yourself
-You can be serious when need be but know how to relax
-Your self-expression does not involve whining and complaining (life is too short!)
-You also are close with your family
-You are educated and stable in your career (I don't need to be taken care of financially but do expect you to be able to take care of yourself)
-You exercise (running, hiking etc)! This is a big part of my life. I'm currently training for a marathon and would love a partner to run with
-You have travelled and want to travel more!
-You are resilient!
-You enjoy the simple things in life
-You are open to a committed relationship
I used to work as therapist treating severely emotionally disturbed teens at a residential treatment facility in San Diego. While the work was incredibly rewarding and challenging it was time for a change.
Being on time ;-)
Movies: Documentaries, comedies, movies that depict real life and not merely "Hollywood" happy endings to satisfy the crowd.
Music: Eclectic- jazz, classical, electronic, folk, classic rock.......and so on....
Food: As pure and healthy as I can get even if it's a burger and fries on occasion :). Palate is culturally diverse.
