I'm a pacifist/mediator by nature but with an occasional streak for mischief. I have liberal West Coast beliefs, traditional Midwest values mixed with a bit of East Coast edge. Although a city girl by birth, I greatly appreciate the beauty and simplicity of mother nature. I keep active on the weekends with random hikes/treks as suggested by BA Hiker :)
My motto: I've always believed that life is too short for the silly stuff we get upset over, and days are better spent living rather than complaining. I'm very close with my family and have a great support network of friends. I believe in living a life examined and finding ways to pay it forward everyday.
1. I don't eat red meat or fast food
2. I'm clumsy in a comical/endearing way
3. I am a yuppie and I am NOT ashamed.
4. I love witty banter - Seriously, this should be an Olympic sport
As far as love and relationships go, I'm a bit of a hopeless romantic. This is attributed to reading too much Austen when too young AND watching too many 90's rom-coms starring Meg Ryan/Tom Hanks/Billy Crystal. While I don't believe in a prefixed formula for an ideal match, I appreciate men who are intelligent, responsible, chivalrous and humorous.
Relationships are organic. A lasting partnership is ever evolving and I'm looking for a solid foundation of mutual love, respect and support. I'm authentic in presentation and interested in genuine connection - so drop me a note if you seek the same.
