I am originally from Austin, Texas and have lived in the south until about a year ago. I moved to Rochester not knowing anyone and it was the craziest thing I've ever done, but probably the best decision of my life (so far).
I have wonderful friends from all over the country and have been able to keep the friendships close and intact. When I'm with friends we spend most of the time laughing, which is kind of funny since they don't have the same sense of humor as I do. I love to laugh.
I am the oldest child in my family. I grew-up in with my sister and brother (from my mom and step-dad) and have another brother (from my dad and step-mom). Although I do not live close to my family at this time, my family is very important to me. I have a close relationship with just about everyone in my family. I have an incredible support system in my family. I have also been blessed with an awesome group of people in Rochester and it is almost as if I have a second family.
I am a vegetarian. This lifestyle is very important to me. I feel a conviction about eating meat and supporting any industry that causes as much pain and destruction as the meat industry. I also avoid purchasing products tested on animals. I do want to say that I am not a hippy, but I believe we, as humans, are responsible for this earth, other living beings, and the environment, and I want to know I've done my part to cause the least amount of pain, destruction and despair.
I’m hoping to meet someone for a serious relationship. I would like to meet someone who enjoys good conversation, movies, looking for things to do around town, and around the area. Someone who enjoys going out for a drink but not “clubbing” (is that what it is even called now?). Mostly, I am hoping to meet someone who knows how to have a real, meaningful relationship.
