I moved out to the PNW from the Midwest last year and I have come to really love it!
I am a compassionate, fun-loving, outgoing person. Yet there are times and situations where I am shy and blush easily. I try to listen deeply to people and I genuinely care about what others think. I enjoy engaging people from all sorts of cultures and I absolutely love my job. My family means the world to me. I have 3 brothers and a sister-in-law, plus two amazing parents. I am also close with my extended family as well, growing up with cousins close by. Its a large and loud family but we love each other.
I value sunshine, relationships with family and friends, Ultimate Frisbee, the outdoors, giving ( getting) massages, meeting new people, dabbling in photography, critical thinking, cuddling in front of a fire, spontaneous adventures, and chocolate. I am not a morning person. I am liable to try almost anything at least once. I have a natural curiosity and love to think about things deeply and engage people, thoughts, and ideas, analyzing and playing with the possibilities and implications for a while. I'm really a goofy nerd who snorts when she laughs, gets giddy excited over little things like fountains, and has an "old soul". I love people watching wherever I am.
I look for a man who has the ability to laugh at themselves and recognize the pain and messiness of life at the same time. Someone who doesn't take life too seriously, but is sweet, compassionate, and sensitive to situations. Someone who loves to talk things through and communicates well--sharing fun conversations as well as deep and intimate conversations.
