I’m a down-to-earth Midwestern girl with a positive outlook and great sense of humor, brought here for work in education policy but now looking for more. I'm easy to talk to, thoughtful, optimistic, witty and loyal. A mutual love of music, good food, wine, NPR, the great outdoors, and reading the New York Times on a Sunday morning can only increase compatibility. I'm looking for someone game to try new restaurants, check out the new union market for brunch, test recipes, squeeze into the 9:30 club for shows as frequently as our work schedules allow, pretend for as long as possible that Sunday isn't directly followed by Monday, and to share a bottle of wine with. I'm just trying to live life the best I can and looking for a smart, kind, capable guy who doesn't take himself too seriously to share it with.
