Did you like my headline? I simply could not resist using it because it lacks subtlety and I thought it was rather humorous! I have a couple of friends on 'Match' who have met nice people and figured it was worth a 3-month trial run!
So a little bit about me (stream of consciousness style)...I grew up in the South but I do not have a southern accent. I moved to the Philadelphia area about five years ago from Boca Grande, Florida (famous for Tarpon fishing) to help some friends open a business. I recently decided to pursue an M.S in Strategic Communications and work within the Office of Leadership Development where I attend school. I am thoroughly enjoying this chapter of my life and could not have scripted it better.
Some random things about me..I will be running in my first half marathon this fall (Philadelphia Rock ‘n’ Roll) and am taking salsa dance lessons this summer. I have gone skydiving twice. I am as comfortable in a five-star hotel as I am camping in the woods. I survived for one year without a television, computer, cable or internet access. I was the only person in my class last semester that was not familiar with the Kardashians. I once road on a semi truck with friends for three weeks- started in Newport, RI and ended up in Florida- and no, I wasn't hitchhiking. I enjoy live music and I’m always up for a road trip. I LOVE to travel. I was born in Mexico City, Mexico and Spanish was my first language (although I don't speak it anymore). I studied in England during college and was able to travel extensively throughout Europe. Oh, I might have moved 23 times before finally landing in Philadelphia- what can I say- I never had to sign a lease!
I have an amazing relationship with my family. My Father is a hippie and my Mother is not- so I had a rather eccentric childhood- to say the least! I am extremely independent and believe it is important to have a 'life' outside of a relationship. Everyone always says that I have a bubbly personality- but I don't quite know what they mean by that comment!
As you can probably tell I am rather adventurous and looking for a partner in crime. I am also looking for someone who is honest, kind and motivated! I am at peace with myself and would like to meet someone who also knows who they are and what they want out of life. If you like what you have read - shoot me an email and perhaps we can chat over coffee or dinner.
PS I don't think I have ever used so many personal pronouns in something 'I' have written....it must be close to forty!
