My self-summary
Chemistry is what can ignite a relationship, and yet it’s chemistry that is near impossible to tell through a profile or a photo. So rather than write a long shopping list of check boxes detailing characteristics and wants in my ideal match, I thought I would simply write about who I am and what makes me tick.

I am an independent,bright and confident woman. I am not afraid to try my hand at anything new and If I don’t know how to do something, I just figure it out. I am someone who can move in and out of most social settings with ease and who enjoys other people. I am someone who is down to earth, grounded and radiates positive energy. I consider myself flexible and am willing to give and compromise but have learned that a relationship where this is one sided will eventually see it’s toll. I am passionate about life and love. I am trusting and generous and will bend over backwards for friends, family and those close to me. I am a woman who can get up and go when I chose to, but I do not have to be on the constant move. I can relax when it’s time to relax, with a book, a movie or just by lying on the grass. I love walking into a crowded room, meeting new people, and learning something new. I love to laugh and make others laugh. I am drawn to people who have a "pep in their step", a twinkle in their eye, are upbeat and positive and have taken the time to get to know themselves and what they are looking for. I love the art of conversation and enjoy the company of those that can challenge and broaden my horizons and views.

I am working hard at getting into better shape and living a healthier life. I’m a great skier, but haven’t ever really found a friend to share that passion with me, so my visits to the mountain are few and far between.

There are so many layers to finding the right match. I know myself well enough to realize that I need to feel a connection with chemistry, but I also need to feel that connection with humor, intellect, emotional maturity, mutual respect and companionship.

I am looking for someone fun and real to hang out with and build from there. You in?

Six things I could never do without
This is not in the order of importance!

On a typical Friday night I am
It ranges wildly from a movie at home to a night of salsa dancing. It totally depends on my mood and who I choose to spend time with. I don't like to do the same thing week after week though...I thrive on variety!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I didn't floss at all last week!
You should message me if
If you don't want a pen pal. I am not interested in weeks of emails but would rather get to know you better with a phone conversation or meet you in person. For practical reasons, I would prefer to strike up a relationship with someone who lives reasonably close to Portland.
