Consider myself to be independent, hard-working, bright, down to earth, open-minded, compassionate, loving, honest, and loyal. Health and fitness are extremely important to me, so I stay as active as possible. Not a fan of drama or of people who take themselves too seriously and look down on others. My sense of humor is a little quirky and sarcastic, and I believe it's absolutely imperative that we all be able to laugh at ourselves once in a while. Looking initially for a casual connection with someone who makes me laugh, offers intelligent conversation, respects me as an equal, doesn't judge, and has a generous heart. This person will also take their health and well-being very seriously, will be totally comfortable in their own skin and not afraid to be passionate about something, love to travel, and will always be up for trying new things. I tend not to relax enough, so a laid back personality would best complement my Type A nature. Many of us have learned a hard lesson regarding how lack of communication can ruin even the best of relationships. As such I don't believe in holding back, even if what I say may not be exactly what someone wants to hear. A little healthy debate every now and then keeps things interesting and strengthens the lines of communication.
