I'm an optimist, a glass-half-full kind of gal. I'm often laughing (or making people laugh), and love spending time with my friends. They say life is what happens when you're making other plans, but for me, it's the amalgam of the daily moments...I'm trying to make the most of it while maintaining a sense of humor about the inevitable snafus of 'real life'.
I moved to NYC from San Francisco about a year ago, and have loved getting to know what I now consider the best city on earth. There's something for everyone here, so I figured I'd try out Match to test the theory that there's also *someone* for everyone. I've found myself traveling a lot recently for work, so signed up to help myself meet people despite a pretty busy schedule.
I grew up in the Midwest, then headed South (to NC) for undergrad before moving to DC for Grad School, then Atlanta & San Francisco for work. Because of that, you'll find me pairing my famous cheese grits with an Oregon Pinot, and if that would make an oenophile cringe, well, too bad...I'm going with it.
I'm athletic and love being outside, so am truly savoring the return to actual seasons (San Francisco lacks those); this is my second Autumn in the city and enjoy being able to take my dog for long walks on the weekends in the crisp air. I also consider myself a pretty social person, but as an independent only child, also crave some much-needed alone time after a hectic week. It's all about balance.
As for you: You're confident. Friendly. Smart. Witty (verbal banter is the best). You care about your friends and family, and are open to adding to that group. You like pets, you love challenges and you're thoughtful, something that is increasingly important to me. You work hard but also know the importance of your free time. You're not looking for someone to complete you, but instead, looking for someone to share your time with. Above all, you can make me smile. Whether it results in friendship or something more, if this sounds like you, I'd love to learn more.
