People who don’t know me tend to use the word “intimidating” to describe me. I think it’s because I tend to walk really fast. I mean, how can intimidating can a 5’-2” girl be? I think they just don’t expect someone as little as me to be as feisty as I am.
I love working out, especially when it’s with friends. I consider myself pretty hardcore – I recently placed at the top of my age group for Tackle the Tower & have some pretty high hopes for 2013… 2 half marathons, Tough Mudders & a few relay marathons.
I’m a firm believer even the most stressful days can be alleviated with yoga, running, cooking or wine… And sometimes a mixture of the 4. If all else fails, getting together with my family or friends for a few good laughs, some sarcasm & maybe even one or two board games sounds like a great night. Euchre anyone?
I believe the little things matter, a lot. All accomplishments, big & small, need to be recognized & celebrated. Life is too short to be unhappy so I try to make the most of it – I choose happiness.
I’m looking for someone who gets me. I love trying new things, traveling, eating, laughing… I want to be with someone who enjoys all of these things as well & is able to make the most mundane tasks fun. He needs to be thoughtful, compassionate, funny… smart, quick-witted & able to put up with my BS. If it turns out he’s a golfer too, he has to be able to lose gracefully when I beat him; or in the least be willing to play with me.
I tend to have some OCD tendencies (I’m a live & die by my planner kind of girl) so I need someone who can appreciate my faults & help me out of my comfort zone without trying to “fix” me – I am who I am, & I’m totally okay with that.
I’m on Match because my friends are highly encouraging it. I tend to over-commit myself on a daily basis (ergo the planner) & have realized if I don’t make meeting someone a priority it may always take the backseat to everything else in my life (work, grad school, etc. etc.). Soo… here it goes.
