So a couple (well - a couple more than a couple) of years ago when I was in college, I was an Intern with the New York Rangers. It was a great foray into the business world - and I'll never forget my first interview for the internship position. I had gone to NYC without a dime in my pocket, determined that I was going to get the job. The morning of my meeting I stepped out into the city streets feeling like a rookie on the first day of training camp: excited, nervous - but being the badass that I am - ready to meet my future colleagues and blow them away with my savvy street smarts - that can only come from my formative years in rural Ohio. Walking to Madison Square Gardens that morning, while making my way through the concrete jungle, instead of the office buildings looming large and intimidating on either side of the street, to me they appeared encouraging - pointing a path towards my future (or so that's what my mind told me anyway). Once there I was ushered into the office where my interview was to take place to wait - and I was sooooo nervous. When my future boss finally walked in, he looked pointedly at the chair I had made myself comfortable in, and it dawned on me that I was sitting on the wrong side of the desk. I guess even then I knew that I was destined to be a CEO - as I wouldn't even let them sit on their accustomed side of the desk. Fortunately, my new boss thought it was funny and told me to stay put as it suited me. One of the questions I was asked was why would a girl that grew up in a small town in Ohio, goes to school in a small town in Ohio, would want to come to New York City to find work. This was a perfect question for me, and I answered confidently that I would bring a different perspective to "The Gardens" (come to find out they don't call it that....) and be a breath of fresh air to those uptight "New Yoakahs". This experience was a defining moment for me as it epitomized the person I knew I was inside, the person I was destined to be and ultimately the person that I am today. In all seriousness, the point of this clearly riveting and entertaining story is that it describes me at my core, and I figured it would be a good way to introduce myself to the Match.com public - as opposed to beginning this profile with "Wow - I am not sure what I am supposed to say about myself."
I have lived in Florida for the past twenty years and I am originally from Ohio. I have three beautiful children that are very active in lots of sports and activities. I work in the advertising industry so I am a very creative person. Going to work everyday is fun for me. I love to network, learn new things and meet new people. I love hanging out with my friends and value my family very much. I like to stay busy. I am always up for a new adventure and I am not afraid to take risks. I am very curious. My friends would tell you that I am a fun loving person that loves to have a good time, and they would also say that I am a caretaker and love to spoil people I love, that’s just my nature. I would like to find someone that loves to laugh, laid back, funny and easy to talk to, likes to travel and explore what the world has to offer, is successful and has a passion for what they do in their career and knows what he wants out of life and how to get it. Most important, someone that loves kids and has good family values. I am not into mind games. Life is too short to play games. If you’re the kind of guy that always has to be right or has a problem getting over things then quit reading and move on. That kind of behavior drives me crazy. I am looking for someone that is open and not afraid to express his feelings but is also willing to listen and is open to other points of view.
I am not sure if I am looking for a serious relationship right now but if it feels right who knows. Let’s take a chance, live, explore, dream, and create new beginnings
