I have returned to the area after 3-plus years taking care of a family member. I have returned to the DC area with a new attitude and a new job that will keep me in the country for the most part. I love being back in the area and am looking forward to spending the summer running, biking, kayaking, training for triathlons, etc. I think of myself as: Smart, but not brilliant; Confident, but not arrogant; Driven, but not obsessed; Goofy, but not a complete spaz, etc. Looking to meet new people, have fun, and maybe even get to know someone special.
In an impromptu effort to be both informative and entertaining let me offer this: I prefer someone who runs (or works out) frequently not someone who gets upset (or freaks out) frequently when she gets a run in her nylons. I favor an advanced degree (and/or rich life experiences) not someone who advances decrees and ultimatums. I opt for someone who reads books not someone who can merely spell b-o-o-k . I would like someone who realizes that running to the refrig and/or curling fritos (with or without dip) is not exercise for the body and that recognizes that Rush Limbaugh is not exercise for the intellect. I would like someone who can mt. Bike part of the afternoon, take a quick shower, and head out to a dinner party not someone who starts primping at noon, and has big hair that a one would need a mt. Bike to get through. Someone who can do the 2 a. m. party scene but it is an occasion not a lifestyle/habit. Someone who says, 'its only two floors, I'll take the stairs.' Someone who can laugh at themselves but not point and laugh the less fortunate.
