Born and raised in Chicago (on the Cubs side of town) with stints in other cities for school, I recently relocated to Phoenix for work (medical resident). I’m educated, ambitious and outgoing. I’m goal-oriented with exciting (to me anyway…) career aspirations, but pride myself on striking a nice balance between my job and my personal life. My family and close friends take precedence in my life, and I’m not embarrassed to say I enjoy spending time with my parents. I choose to surround myself with genuinely good-hearted people and am truly fortunate for the incredible individuals I have in my life. I enjoy being active, especially outdoors. I’m currently training for a half-marathon, always up for some good hiking or camping, and have gotten into biking since moving to Arizona. I have a baseball mitt in my trunk and I don’t throw like a girl.
Being fit is important to me, but unfortunately my job keeps me from making it to the gym as often as I’d like. Being healthy is equally as important, but doesn’t keep me from an occasional indulgence of Swedish Fish or strawberry-topped frozen yogurt. I enjoy traveling and have intentions of seeing the world at least once over (had a great trip to Italy this winter). A white picket fence sounds nice, but an ocean front view sounds even better. I think I have a good sense of humor, but you can be the judge of that. I’m hard to offend. I’m honest to a fault sometimes. I enjoy laughing at myself and singing aloud to an audience of zero. I don’t floss regularly. I dislike the perpetual stench of communal microwaves. I like going on nice dates, but also love nights in with comfy clothes, a home-cooked meal, and some logs aflame in the fireplace. I’m fairly independent and have tended in the past to focus on my education (and the many moves I’ve made for it) rather than relationships. Now I’m looking for someone with whom to share common interests, enjoyable activities, incredible experiences and perhaps more.
That confident someone should be educated and goal-oriented, excited about life, up for most things (from kayaking to a cozy night in with a good read in hand), and with aspirations for attaining/maintaining a happy, healthy, successful life. He should be able to stimulate me intellectually, inspire me to be a better version of myself and make me smile so much that my cheeks hurt. He should also be understanding of my busy schedule, as he likely has a busy one of his own. I don’t consider myself high maintenance nor can I deal with a guy who is. At the end of the day, he should be someone with whom I can turn off the rest of the world, decompress and be a goof around.
I know there is someone out there who is my equal in every sense of the word. I’m excited to meet him.
