Most people who know me well have described me as outgoing, funny, loud, and social. They are always shocked when I tell them that I can also be really shy when I first meet new people but when they are outgoing and funny, loud or social, I am immediately at ease.
Here are some interesting "fun facts of the day" about me: if I could meet anyone dead or alive, my person will always be Leo Da Vinci, he is my idol for so many reasons. I am a die-hard Minnesota Vikings fan, and look forward all week to Sundays during football season. I used to moonlight as a bartender back in CA and can make a wicked Long Island Iced Tea. I am a southpaw but play all sports right-handed (ok, so that's maybe not totally interesting but I just thought I would add it in anyway). I am just as happy sitting at home and playing board games as I am going out on the town all dolled up to dance (just a fair warning, I am kind of amazing at Cribbage, watch out!). I love dogs, and have one named Bentley, but sadly, he is currently living back in CA.
Whenever people ask me, "What's your ideal type of man?" I never know how to answer it. I believe that we can have these great lists of characteristics that we look for but the person we end up falling in love with could be completely opposite of those traits. I would hate to miss out on meeting an amazing man just because I wanted him to have green eyes and he had brown. That being said, I do have a list of inner qualities that I look for in an ideal partner. I am looking for someone who, like me, has had a great time being single, but is ready to be in a serious relationship. I am Catholic, and that is important to me, but not a deal-breaker, so long as he respects that those are my beliefs.
Ultimately, this is what it boils down to: I'd like to find a man who treats me the way he wants to be treated. The Golden Rule is an oldie but a goodie.
