My self-summary
I have not dated much, and do not enjoy the club scene nor what it presumably has to offer. I'm looking for someone who follows the golden rule: treat others as you would like to be treated. I don't understand what's so difficult about that!?

I am originally from Massachusetts, but due to my work (I’m a zookeeper), I have lived in South Dakota, Texas (twice) and Florida (twice). However, I am very happy with Tampa. Surprisingly, I haven’t spent much time at the beach, but I do enjoy shelling, conversation, and – a new discovery – conch bites.

As I am an only child, my friends are my family. I remain very close friends with people I knew in elementary school as well as those I've met at various internships throughout the years. Because of this, I've learned to appreciate them, and understand what it means to be a friend. I am a supremely positive and upbeat person. A moody, petulant high school outlook is so 2001.

I love going to the movies; I love curling up on the couch and watching television; I love reading. I work outside, so I am always up for any outdoor activity - that's kind of the point of living in Florida. I would love to have a lot in common with whomever I am dating, but we need not be carbon copies or anything like that. I think it would be great if we could expose each other to new ideas and activities as well. I like animals - I have three cats and I work at a zoo - so it's kind of a prereq that whomever I date is cool with animals.

I'm super organized, I'm clean, I don't do drugs or smoke, and I think I'm pretty great, but not to the point where I throw a parade every day. If you know what Myers-Briggs is, I'm an ENFJ.
What I’m doing with my life
working...relaxing...hanging out...and training for my first full marathon (in London in April 2014 for Save the Rhino International) - I have a website detailing my training and life in general. Message me if you'd like to find out more. ;)

I spend a lot of time thinking about
~meeting the right guy
~why people say things like "all of a sudden" and "cut to the chase" - they make no sense!
~my future races
On a typical Friday night I am
at the movies, hanging out with friends, relaxing with my cats on the couch at home watching tv, working - there is no "typical" friday night
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is that i'm a...

...oh, just decided not say anything here (you'll have to ask)
You should message me if
I did not scare you with my brutal honesty, sarcasm and tendency to ramble - wait til I have to leave a phone message (does anyone do that anymore?). And if you're looking for a serious relationship and would actually like to meet in person at some point instead of just texting.
The two of us
