In all honesty, I can write as much as I want here, but until people meet in person, its always hard to tell if there is the appropriate chemistry. Saying that, I still enjoy reading what others have to say, because it does give a good idea of what others value in relationships and their lives...so here it goes...
Overall, I would describe myself as a grounded, thoughtful and ambitious person, who is always looking to learn or experience something new. I love to travel - within the last couple years I have gone to Thailand, Spain, Costa Rica and South America. In the future, i want to travel the remainder of Europe, Japan, South Africa, and Peru. Recently I have been on somewhat of an adventure kick - zip lining, white water rafting, hiking. I am hoping to go sky diving sometime this year.
Acknowledging my long commute and the ridiculous traffic at peak hours, I try to go to the gym until traffic dies down, and because it helps keep me sane :-) Mostly I just go to the gym, but have also done boot camp and barre classes. I am not a runner by nature, but would really like to train to do longer distances.
I am originally from Pittsburgh (thus my love for Pittsburgh sports teams), but grew up in the I.E. However, I tend to spend most of my free time in Orange County and LA due to work, friends and activities. My friends and family are extremely important to me and I try to spend time with them whenever possible.
I am looking for someone who can make me laugh, who is kind hearted, has had life experience (not too sheltered) and who likes trying new things. I need someone who is pretty independent and ambitious, and who does not mind my schedule. I always appreciate someone who does not take themselves too seriously, and has the ability to act goofy and spontaneous at times. More than anything, I want someone who makes things easy and natural.
