My self-summary
In transition/under construction. I feel like I've been growing a lot as a person in my 30s.

Healthy living/being fit has become a big part of my life. I can (and do) eat junk food and lounge around with the best of them, but regular exercise and generally eating healthy is important to me. I'd like a person who thinks this is important too.

I'm not religious or spiritual. I do try to practice mindfulness in my everyday life, and am working on having a consistent, regular meditation practice.

I have a successful career that I've worked hard my entire life for. The new struggle has been to cultivate a good work-life balance.

I'd really like to find someone who I click well with. I think chemistry and attraction are really important, but I'm also looking for someone who I connect with on a deeper level.

How Did You Get this Number

I LOVE FOOD. Can't get enough of the Philly food scene.
I used to be a vegetarian, but I fell off the wagon years ago. Even though I love vegetarian food, I don't think I could ever go back to life without chicken wings again.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
All the things I'm supposed to be learning, but don't feel like looking at.
Also: Mindfulness and meditation
On a typical Friday night I am
Some of my other nights are more typical. As long as I'm not exhausted or working, you can find me blues dancing on Sundays.

I like to go to Fox and Hound on Saturdays for the UFC Fights.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't fall in love easily.
I am sick to death of going on dates.

Also, I bought a hurricane spin mop after watching the infomercial. Don't judge..
You should message me if
You want to go to a bar to watch football or UFC.
You want to go dancing. You have a great sense of humor. You live your life by treating others the way you would want to be treated.
You want to learn American Sign Language with me.
You want to sit on the couch and drink wine (or beer) while watching some football or listening to NPR, The Savage Love Podcast, or David Sedaris reading his audiobooks.

Honestly, if the following apply to you, we're just not compatible, so you should NOT message me if you:
- voted for trump
- have an avoidant attachment style
- are looking just for casual sex or "netflix and chill". I'm sex positive and GGG, but I think I'm over the random/casual sex part of my life. I'm looking for actual intimacy within a relationship (::gasp::)- not just sex.
- are super religious (I was raised Catholic but have happily been in recovery for over a decade)
- do not have feminist beliefs and morals
- don't support gay rights/gay marriage
- are not pro-choice
- are in an open relationship. I have nothing against it, it's just not what I'm looking for.

Also, unfortunately, cats are kind of a deal breaker for me- I'm allergic, and destroying a cat also happens to be one of my dog's major life goals.
