I am a dreamer, planner and romantic at heart. I have lived in DC for the past five years. I work for a large private consulting firm and change projects regularly, working all around DC. I work hard and love my job, but value time with my friends and family just as much. Though I love to have fun, I also enjoy relaxing on the weekends, too. I like to snuggle up and read books next to my fireplace on nights I am not out. I love coffee and tea. Im a foodie and love exploring new restaurants and cuisines, especially for brunch! On the flip side, I really value working out and eating healthy - something I also hope to find in a partner. I am an avid runner, training for my third half marathon and first full this spring! Hosting and having people over is one of my favorite things to do on weekends, especially during the holidays. Planning outings, parties, weekend trips and the like are also some of my favorite things to do.
I grew up abroad for most of my life in the Middle East and China (and Texas!) so have a passion for travel, trying new foods and exploring new cities abroad and in the USA. I love big cities and having lived in DC for so long, I enjoy exploring new places to find new experiences.
I am looking for a best friend; I am looking for someone who can make me laugh, whose willing to go out and have fun, who I can share my dreams with, and who can complement who I am. I am looking for someone who is driven at work and in life in general. I am looking for someone who loves to explore the District and new places, who likes to entertain and be entertained, but can also step out of their job and take some time to relax on time off. My family lives abroad, and I still am a nomad at heart, so I am looking for someone who is willing to travel, at least for family visits before settling down. Overall, I am looking for someone with a similar passion and devotion to their career, family, and taking care of themselves.
