I'm a down to earth, genuine, sweet, smart person. I like to think that I am pretty laid back. I'm not into drama and love to have fun. I love to try new things and would love to have new experiences with someone I care about. I am looking to build a strong relationship with someone special and hopefully settle down and have a family of my own. I'm a very caring and giving person and needs someone who can be the same for me. I love to laugh and have a good time, so humor is something that I truly value. Life's too short to take ourselves too seriously, so I can definitely laugh at myself and others (but never in a malicious way!). I love to visit new places and travel - although, I'd really like to do more. I finally made it to Vegas last year when I completed my first half marathon. It was a blast, but unfortunately I hurt my knee so it made for an interesting race. I'm fully recovered now! I originally started running last year to help lose weight and get into better shape, and now that I'm healed, I'm getting back into it. I like to try new restaurants, and would like to explore more of the city. I'm not a huge sports fan, but love going to live games, especially Reds and Bengals games! I love to spend time with my family and my friends, so I hope that whomever I date has a sense of family and has strong friendships. The things I'm looking for in a partner are trust, honesty, communication, and a good sense of humor. I think they are all such a vital component to a strong relationship.
