I am outgoing, friendly, outspoken, confident, energetic, and a hopeful romantic. I live for adventure and fun times. With this said - I am a kid at heart, do my best to not take life too seriously but live with meaning. I love to smile, laugh, be entertained and like making others smile. Life is about quality NOT quantity. This is how I'm living my life to the fullest.
I am born and raised in the heart of San Francisco and moved to OC over 6 years ago. My overall style is So.Cal and my attitude personality is SF. On a global scale, I belong equally to the East and the West. My philosophies, morals and values are highly inspired by the East. My personality, style, demeanor, interests are inspired by the West. I don't belong to any particular social or cultural niche as I have a large variety of interests and hobbies so I like to think that I am well-rounded and a good sport;)
Traveling is food for my soul. As I learn more about other cultures, languages and people, I believe it makes life that much more colorful. I've been to India, Brazil, Switzerland, France, Canada and Mexico. Europe has won my heart as I find it to be an incredibly romantic place. I see myself going back countless times and not getting tired of it. Next would be South America and Asia.
I live a very health conscious lifestyle. I workout 3-4 times a week and go hiking over weekends (typically 8-10 miles). I don't eat red meat and not dependent on meat in general as well since I was raised in a vegetarian family. Though I do enjoy eating fish, turkey, chicken and other seafood. I primarily like to cook because I think it's the healthiest option verses dining out. I am a huge foodie and do love dining out and trying out new restaurants. Quality of food and ambiance is important when going to any restaurant.
I stare at a computer screen 40 hours a week at least for work and when I'm home it's the last thing I want to do. Exceptions can be made for favorite TV shows or movies that are worthwhile or if I'm needed for cuddling purposes;) Otherwise - I'm at the gym, reading, shopping, sleeping (one of my absolute fav hobbies), cooking, planning activities, planning travel, studying languages or hanging out with friends.
I am not a believer in casual dating or casual sex for that matter and don't need to waste my time on here for that. I am looking for a serious relationship and joined Match.com in hopes to meet and get to know someone who has similar goals, lifestyle, hobbies and outlook on life that can complement me.
I have a deep appreciation for travel, fashion and food so the man I'm with needs to know how to appreciate this in me as well.
