This summer, I moved back to Columbus after being gone for ten years. I moved here from Chicago, where I spent six amazing years. I love Chicago and miss it every day, but I am looking forward to taking advantage of everything Columbus has to offer!
I have amazing friends and a very close family. At all of their weddings, I have thoroughly enjoyed dancing like an idiot and wearing expensive bridesmaid dressed that I’ll “definitely be able to wear again” (yeah, right). My family is incredibly important to me. I have a bigger immediate family, but we are all lucky enough to live in the Midwest so can see each other fairly often. I also have an identical twin sister, which has been a lot of fun through the years.
Sports have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I grew up playing every sport imaginable, eventually focusing in on swimming. Swimming is an intense sport, but it instilled the value of hard work, dedication, and commitment into my life. As an adult, I played on a handful of intramural teams in Chicago (looking for a league here!) to keep my competitive nature going. I also took up running, which is a great activity because it doesn’t allow for excuses…you can run anywhere, anytime. I jumped on the bandwagon and have run a handful of half marathons.
I'm looking for someone who shares my common daily interests and values. Even after a long day of work and its 30 degrees outside, I would love someone who would be excited about going for a run. Motivation and ambition are very important to me, in career and life in general. I am a very real person and am always myself. I believe people sometimes take like too seriously (myself included), so I need someone who can laugh and has a strong balance and life perspective. I have a sarcastic sense of humor, so you’d have to be able to put up with that as well!
