I'm new to this but excited to get out and meet new people. I've lived in Portland 6 years and love it here. About me: I work hard and put a lot into building my career. I'm still working on that whole work life balance thing - but it is a priority. I have a strong sense of adventure that comes from my upbringing and guides my future. I also have a strong sense of self and find confidence incredibly attractive. I don't take myself too seriously and need those moments to just be silly, let loose and relax (and sometimes need someone to remind me to do so). Outside of that I love good restaurants, wine, romance, game nights, reading, dancing, karaoke, travel, animals and great conversations... This all sounds cliche as I type it but I promise I'm better than this average response :).
I've learned over the years that my passions don't need to be someone else's passions to make it work, but they do need to have passion. Drive, enthusiasm and a sense of humor are at the top of the list of what I would like in a good partner along with the ability to communicate openly and honestly without judgement. I am not interested in games. Chase is for children. I approach life with intensity and passion, so what you see is what you get. I'm straightforward and don't hold back - life's just too short.
I am excited for the fun and spontaneity that comes with this next phase of my life, while finding someone to share it with. I'm a very open person and would rather not sell myself through a couple paragraphs, so I look forward to talking to you!
