I recently moved back to the east coast from California where I lived for the past 2 years. I work in Rockville, MD but I live where I do because location has much to do with how you spend your free time and the people you meet.
I enjoy hanging out with different groups of friends, exploring new places, going to happy hours, or just reading sometimes. The people you surround yourself with makes all days, great days. I love adventures and trying new things. I enjoy the times I can go out to let go whether it's bar/dancing nights or more quiet nights. It goes without saying, I value those I'm close with, friends and my family. I can be guarded at first but when I let someone in, I am extremely loyal. I lose respect for people that play games in relationships and can't be honest.
Working out and staying healthy is a priority for me and I want to find someone who embraces that, too. I'm from an active family and I grew up around sports. I swam from childhood through college but now I run, love yoga, biking, etc. I find anything fun in regards to being active and outside - surfing, camping, hiking, canoeing, fishing.
As much as schedules are good, I love being creative and shaking things up. I vacation with my family to the beach for sun and the mountains to ski. I'm someone who would get in a car and take random road trips with friends. I have been to China and traveled around Europe.
I'm open minded and laid back. But, I like a good, playful argument and someone that can dish it back. I surround myself with people that love life, are passionate, easy going, and driven. I have an independent side. I know what I want and I'm motivated to be there.
Finding humor in most everything is needed and I don't hesitate to make a joke to lighten the mood. I'm looking for someone who can laugh with me at the little things as well as the big things in life, can learn with me, and is open to being in a relationship to its fullest. Someone who knows when to be serious and knows when it's over rated. Laughter is the best medicine.
