Challenge me, humor me, enjoy everything from the trees of Oakland blossoming in Spring to the farthest away adventure with me, and I'll make you happy you did! I'm sweet, smart, and fun...adventurous, positive and kind. And somehow I haven't yet found the right counterpart!
I've spent the past 2 years going back and forth to work in Africa, and I'm ready to find someone special back home in the Bay Area. Never did the online dating thing before, so please forgive my innocence on all things match.com.
What can I say, I'm a girl who will enjoy a long conversation with you, surprise you with tiny but meaningful gestures of kindness, groove to old school 90's R&B with you, and definitely go out to dinner with you.
In trying to characterize the perfect guy for me, my friends deduced it might need to be a cowboy (!!!!) I don't know about that, but I know I'm looking for someone who's thoughtful and considerate, but also ambitious and confident. Can I find someone who might discuss a recent article from Foreign Policy magazine with me, but still tease me when I do something silly?
I grew up in Pennsylvania in a solid, hard-working, supportive, no-drama family, and dream of making my own version of that some day. I get along with open-minded, curious, and interesting people - people who also care about being the change they wish to see in the world. I'm a sucker for documentary movies, and I've been known to spend my vacations volunteering.
In the country where I work they say I have the "Cara de Bom Dia" (Face of Good Morning). Funny, since I'm not a morning person at all, but I think they're trying to say I'm sweet and approachable. Let's get to know each other, and I'll show you a multiplicity of different faces.
