I think a lot. I think about stupid things, like how do sumo wrestlers, genetically, come from the Japanese population? Or what’s the first five lines I should take on a powder day that nobody else will think of? Or why doesn’t my dog get tired of eating the same food all of the time?
But I also think about serious things, and I have a theory about all of us wandering souls on match. I think, if you’ve made it to your late 20s, 30s, 40s and you’re single, you’ve had your heart broken at least once (otherwise you wouldn’t be single?). And I think so many of us have pulled ourselves up by our bootstraps, and said, “well, I’m going to live for myself for awhile and do the things I want to do”, and we did those things, and here we are ready to find the one.
Like you, I focused my energy into advancing my career, traveling the world, savoring the small things in life, learning how to cook for one, buying a house, and prioritizing my life around the true friends and family, etc. And life is great. I truly couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful life than the one I have lived. I just want to share all of those experiences with someone else now :)
I’m a very outgoing person and love to embrace all that life has to offer. I find joy in lighting the (illegal) fire pit in my backyard, devouring the cheese section at Whole Foods, or taking my homegirl for a run along the creek. I am looking for a relationship that will allow my whims to flourish and maybe even encourage them. I am looking for someone to people watch with, and plan adventures with. I want to be in a relationship that understands that I am close to my family. I am looking for the comfort of space in a relationship. I think it’s healthy that you like to do things that I’m not interested in (Do you golf? Drink coffee? Like folding laundry? Or picking weeds? How about watering the house plants? Those are all things I don’t really like).
In contradiction, I am also looking for a lot of shared interests and character traits. A sampling may include: Loyalty, silliness, open mindedness, heart of gold, comfortable in your own skin, laughing so much you might accidentally pee a little bit (ok, maybe that’s just me), voracious sushi appetite (I know more about sushi than a white girl from the Midwest should) and you like to spend a lot of your winter time on the snow. Oh…And dishing it out. Without a doubt I need a guy that will challenge me and not be afraid to tell me I’m full of it. I’m seeking that certain je ne sais quoi, and I will fall for the mischievous smart one that keeps me on my toes.
So let’s go grab a beer and chat
