I feel most alive when I'm exploring a new and unfamiliar corner of the planet. I relish in travel, culture, adventure, and an unexpected friendship found in some foreign hostel. There's more than a little wanderlust in me. I once met a married couple who were backpacking through Central America together for a year. They're my heroes. Now I (we) may never do that, but I need someone who at least sees that as pretty darn amazing and inspiring!
I'm a notorious devil's advocate, who loves to have good conversations. I like to be challenged. I adore wit.
I hate shoes, and sort of wish the world would go barefoot. In fact, I hate restrictive clothing of any kind... especially ties.
I believe there is a wealth of wisdom in books, and I'm currently trying to plow my way through the classics. Though I have to confess, I can't understand how some of these are considered classic. Horribly boring.
I ski, I scuba dive, I snowmobile, and I love the beach.
For anyone interested in personality profiles, Myers-Briggs defines me as an INFP. It's fairly dead on.
In relationships I'm told that I'm not always the best communicator. I have very clear feelings and thoughts, but I guard them, and I save them for the few close people that have earned them. I'm also not quick to rush into relationships. I wade in slowly, because I wade out slowly. I've never understood people who fall hard and fast, and then fall out just as quickly. It strikes me as shallow. Regardless, this quality of mine has been a source of frustration for past girlfriends, so I figured I should be forthcoming.
