Competitive, sassy, driven, organized, outgoing, generous, extremely logical, fiercely loyal, and always looking for the next thrill ride sum me up pretty well. I am finally learning how to spend more time relaxing [recently developed an intimate relationship with my couch] and live the concept of one day at a time - some days it's one step at a time! Strong Type A who would benefit from a partner bringing balance: a calming and stable factor to my crazy go go!
I've been dubbed 'The Adventuress' and spent 9 years traveling through my mid 20-30's: lived in the mountains, on the ocean, on a Caribbean island, traveled around-the-world and much of the U.S., volunteered at 2 Olympic Games, etc. I returned to Columbus five years ago and feel like I am still settling in to my 'real world' life. It's been an adjustment.
Romantic gestures: I would be more excited if someone changed the oil in my car or rotated the tires. Flowers die, and candy in a heart shaped box is just plain stupid. I have an incredible group of very diverse friends and a very supportive family. My sister is my best friend. Crazy about my nephews and niece - I had no idea you could love someone so much or act like such a fool with a kid until they came along. I love being an aunt! I'm an on the table person who will tell it like it is, and expect the same in return.
Honesty and communication are the most important elements of any relationship. I would rather hear the truth than BS and hate playing emotional games. I can dress for a formal event and the next morning take off on a weekend camping trip. I need a great deal of diversity in my life.
