I love and cherish the simple things in life, like the time I get to spend with friends and family; the smiles and laughter of my nieces and nephew; my cup of coffee in the morning; staying up late reading a book because it is so good I can't put it down; laughing at a great line on a movie or TV show; the moment when the endorphins kick in during a run; a dog passing me by on the sidewalk; when someone holds the door for me (and holding it for someone too)...
While I am very much a homebody, I also love being outdoors. I can have fun staying at home doing such things as reading, cooking or watching a movie. But I also like going out and being outdoors doing such things as checking out a new restaurant (I am a bit of a foodie), going dancing (although I have not done that in a while), going for a walk , traveling, going to the theatre, etc. I also like running and have done a few races so far, including a couple of marathons. I enjoy exposing myself to new experiences and ideas, and like to learn about new (and not so new) topics. While I am not one to hesitate to do things on my own (whether it is going out to see a movie or traveling to a foreign country), I love when I get to spend time and share life's experiences with others.
I would like to meet someone who shares similar interests and values, but who can also introduce me to new experiences and ideas. Someone who has a great sense of humor and likes to have fun, but who also knows how to keep that in balance. Someone with whom I can engage in conversations about topics from the mundane to to the not so mundane. Someone who is looking and ready to build a relationship with someone, if and when the right person comes along.
There is, of course, much more to me than what can be captured in this profile. If you would like to meet and know more, let me know. Perhaps your profile will catch my attention, too.
