Okay, I should try at this. I find long profiles tough and I'm not very good at this... so short and sweet. I am quiet but intelligent. I work hard and play hard, when I'm not working I'm working out. I love to road bike and rock climb. I really want a partner that can keep up with me and, ideally, push me.
What makes me happiest is my nephews. Family always comes first. My dog is also pretty important to me, my protector.
I am proud of my scholarly accomplishments. I am from a very poor up ringing and managed to get a PhD from Yale.
I am grateful for my family and friends. I have a lot of love around me.
From a relationship, I am first looking for a new best friend. I believe friendship is essential to a successful relationship. At this point I know at least some shallow things that work for me and what doesn't work. I need someone energetic and loves the outdoors. If you don't have this, then we likely will never see each other! Someone that maybe doesn't do the same workout as me, but dedicates time to working out. Love of family is another thing.
I do relax! Movies, dinner, a good trail run (kidding, sort of).
I don't drink and I don't hang out in bars... so if your idea of a fun Saturday night is getting a few drinks at the local pub, I'm not your girl.
