People I get along best with are genuine, open-minded, kind-hearted. I want to get out and explore my surroundings with fun, fit, sincere and interesting people. BIG bonus points for funny.... I need to laugh more often. (Who doesn't?) I am open to new friends (moved here 1 year ago; still need to make local connections) not just looking for a "match". I am independent, in control of my life, and appreciate when people have their **** together. Life can be challenging and I'm not exactly where I want to be personally or professionally, but I am tenacious and committed and will not stop until I get there. I find that if left to my own devices I will get way too focused on work and chores and fun gets marginalized. Hoping to meet someone to enjoy life's pleasantries with, who will create frequent distractions.
