I love adventures and thrill-seeking, but most of the time, I prefer to spend my time hanging out and laughing with friends and family. And I'm looking for someone who wants that same kind of balance in his life.
I love my job, but also love the time I am not at work. :) When I'm not working, other than spending time with family and friends, I have a lot of hobbies that I wish I had more time to indulge - reading, horseback riding, piano playing, running. I also have a mild obsession with my Tivo and goofy movies (Zoolander, Wedding Crashers, etc.).
I love to travel - I spent most of my childhood traveling, and because of that have a huge appreciation for the world around us. I have been chased by rhinos in South Africa and caimans in the Amazon. I also have lived all over the country, and ended up in New Jersey a few years ago for work. As a Midwestern girl whose family is all back in Wisconsin, I have to say I never thought I'd make my home out East, but it's definitely a better fit for me.
I'm definitely looking for someone who I can explore these passions and more as we get to know one another. My ideal mate is someone who can be serious and also laugh at life in good and bad times. He doesn't take himself too seriously, but still gets the respect he deserves. Someone who knows how to balance the craziness that life throws at you. I am always looking for new experiences, and am still getting to know my newfound home. If you're looking to explore life too, drop me a line!
