Traveling is something I particularly enjoy, whether domestic or abroad. I'm always looking for the next awesome fare or "great escape" opportunity (I have been known to put fairly complex trips together on a whim.) If there's something I can do well, you'd better believe that coordinating an exciting trip is it! I'm always thinking about my next adventure; this year has already seen an expedition to Greece, Malta, and Sicily.
People matter, and the quality of the time we spend with them matters, too. For this reason, I like to take the time to stop and enjoy the world around me with the people who mean most to me. Constantly rushing through life without being able to take things in is not living. I enjoy beautiful architecture, museums, music, interesting destinations, and undiscovered cultures, and I love to share these experiences with others. I am also very passionate about good cuisine, both in terms of exploring the local food scene and cooking up delicious things in my own kitchen -- and better still if paired with some great beer or wine!
For kicks, here are three things that my friends have to say about me:
- "You genuinely care about others."
- "You're determined and goal-oriented."
- "You'll give anything a solid try."
And now, a little about the sort of person I'm looking for:
The qualities that I value in a partner are intelligence, dependability, loyalty, graciousness, compassion, and kindheartedness. I want to pursue an emotionally and spiritually committed relationship, in which love is demonstrated through sacrifice and selflessness, putting the needs of the other ahead of one's own.
I desire a relationship with purpose. I'm looking for someone who's ready for a long-term commitment.
