Friends describe me as attractive, intelligent, ambitious, reliable, strong independent, caring and down to earth as well as funny, fun, spontaneous and optimistic. My top 5 personality traits/strengths as revealed through a business leadership test are: Achiever, Empathizer, Relator, Connectedness and Responsibility. I'd have to say this is a fairly accurate assessment because while I am driven and find joy in accomplishing anything I set out to, 3 out of 5 of the traits are people-oriented -- so true of me! I am quite gregarious and am fascinated in getting to know different people.
The smiley face in my headline pretty well sums me up. I'm a very positive thinker - I don't view the world through unrealistic rose colored glasses - I'm extremely grounded - but I always do look for the good in every person and every situation. In my opinion, life is too short to be negative -- where has that ever gotten anyone?! I choose to see the upside to things and enjoy life to the fullest! Two of my many favorite quotes: "Don't worry, be happy" and "don't sweat the small stuff" - these are a couple of the general philosophies by which I live my life. Also, I believe in helping others - this is a huge passion of mine. I routinely volunteer at a soup kitchen on the holidays and in the community throughout the year. I would give someone the shirt off my back if they needed it. I feel the concept of "Pay It Forward" is a terrific one and I do so as often as I can.
I'm thankful for all the tremendous good fortune in my life -- fantastic family friends; good health; good job; nice home; the ability to travel and experience many wonderful things in life. I've worked hard for everything I have and take nothing for granted.
Currently I'm most proud of the 4.0 GPA I'm earning in Graduate School (pursuing my MBA), while working full time. Don't let the blonde hair fool you - there's quite a bit of gray matter upstairs! :-) Because of that, I prefer a person who can keep me on my toes, mentally. I definitely believe physical attraction is important in a relationship, however, it's one's personality and what's on the inside that truly matter to me....
Healthy eating and fitness are extremely important to me - I work out several times a week. Good health is the foundation for everything; without it, a person has nothing. With that said, yes, I do like to indulge occasionally and enjoy weekend cocktails, too - hey, gotta enjoy life!
There are several sides to me that range from serious when it's time to take care of business, to being extremely silly and goofy. I can be very sarcastic when the mood strikes. Hey - it's the Jersey girl in me, what can I say?! haha. There's a long, long list of things that I like to do for fun; generally speaking, I'm adventurous and up for trying almost anything once! Can't knock something until you've tried it, right?! I feel anything and everything is so much more enjoyable when you're doing it with that special someone -- because simply spending time with that person IS the highlight.
I'm looking for someone who is established, intelligent, kind-hearted, thoughtful -- a gentleman with basic good manners and respect. A goal-oriented individual who is responsible but also likes to laugh, have fun and enjoy life to the fullest! A sense of humor is a must!!
Important note: If you're looking for a FWB or have any ideas of sending me inappropriate photos of yourself, please do not message me. I'm NOT interested and you'd just be wasting your time. Thanks.
