I've never been good at describing myself, I always think you get to know someone through your dealings with the person anyway; so I will keep it short. I was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley area of Los Angeles, but I have also spent time in Knoxville, TN (of all places), Mexico City, and Guatemala. I love traveling when I have the means to do so. I tend to consider myself as intelligent and a bit nerdy, yet an easy-going and mellow individual. I am a bit on the shy side but I am also adventurous although I do not care much for nightclubs/bars and rather spend time with those close to me such as family and friends. I have been told I can be quite romantic, but in all honesty I just try to speak my mind/heart the best way I can. I try not to beat around the bush, and if I like (or dislike) someone, I will let them know, although I dislike arguing and try my best to avoid them (passifism). Once I have grown fond of a person, I have the tendency to grow very attached to them, thus, saying goodbye can be challenging at times. I tend to be a goal-setter and work hard at achieving them. When I have stumbled, I always make sure I stand up and keep going. I am the type of person who is always willing to lend a helping hand. I consider myself studious, I love reading and acquiring new knowledge; that tends to stimulate me and motivate me. I consider myself a bit of a techie, I love tinkering with gadgets, reading about technology, etc. I am looking for someone mature enough to know what she wants both in life and in a relationship and who is not afraid to work hard at both of them. I do not promise a perfect relationship, but when I find someone who I think is worth the effort, you would be surprised at how far I would go to make the relationship work.
