I have a 'go with the flow' mentality and an optimistic approach to life. I am friendly and outgoing and I strive to find the good in people. I find joy in helping others (esp by feeding them delicious food/ introducing friends to new friends). Family and friends are both very high up on my list of priorities. I love trying new restaurants around town, cooking, journaling through photography, listening to music (especially when it's live), singing, dancing, staying involved in the community, and having a good time with good company. I consider myself to be a good schmoozer. :-) Extra points if you make me laugh. I believe things happen for a reason and I strive to learn from my past experiences. I'm hesitant about the whole online dating as I find it easier to connect with people in person, but I'm open to the possibility this could bring.
