I'm a 31 year old, independent, professional female. I'm very thoughtful, kind, and caring and I'm looking for someone who is the same. My family and my true friends mean the world to me. I love to laugh and I enjoy walking and spending time outside at the beach, lake, and mountains. I love to see fireworks. I enjoy going for drives and exploring new places. In the winter, I love to ice skate and ski, and I've always wanted to try snowshoeing. I like to go out to dinner/for drinks, to the movies, to sports events, and to concerts, but I also enjoy a quiet evening at home making dinner and watching a movie. I'm always up for trying something new and am pretty spontaneous. I'm a Special Education Teacher and will be starting classes in the fall to earn my Master's degree. I enjoy listening to many different kinds of music, from country to rock to rap. I'm looking for someone who is respectful, independent, employed,educated, and driven. I am not looking for someone who is looking for a free ride; I'm looking for a partner, someone who enjoys spending time with me, can take care of himself, and be my best friend.
