I'm a 23 year old graduate student working on my masters in health education. I'm looking for a masculine gentleman, someone who can switch gears from date night out to a quiet night in with wine and a redbox. Someone who takes care of themselves, and a treats all women with respect. That last one is pretty important.
I'm a very affectionate person and I'm happiest when that is reciprocated, however, I stay pretty busy with work and school, so a partner that can show affection in ways other than in person is ideal.
I'm an organic combination of feminine and nontraditional. I love wearing dresses and looking put together, I take care of my appearance. I also enjoy fishing, hiking and watching sports. I absolutely love football, but I'll be the first to admit that I don't know everything about the game. I'm usually up for most things exciting, although I'm terrified of bicycles. I realize that's probably an irrational fear, but fortunately it's one I can avoid most of the time. I carry an Epi-pen because I'm deathly allergic to radishes, another unique part of my composition.
I live to laugh and love. I'm from New Hampshire so living in Philly is still pretty new to me. I love cooking and trying new things. In high school I rode horses competitively, and I've recently gotten back into it. I ride every week. It's a phenomenal work out and it gives me a break from school and work.
I have a very genuine heart, and I would love to find someone who embraces that without taking advantage. Before my Dad passed away he told me that the only thing I should never be willing to give, is up. I live by that daily.
I'm a fun girl, with a sarcastic sense of humor. I like to tease and joke around, I'm flirtatious and romantic. Chivalry is important to me. I'm quirky, and a little bit nerdy.
Why am I on here? My graduate program is almost entirely female, and I don't mix work with pleasure, so that crosses off the majority of the people I already know. That leaves the bar scene, which to be honest, when I'm out with my girlfriends I would rather just hang out with them than be scoping out men, if something came along, that'd be fine, it's just not my aim of a night out. I suppose there's the off chance I could meet someone at the grocery store, but I won't hold my breath for finding my soul mate over a head of lettuce, although I secretly think that would be awesome. So I figured, why not give this a whirl?
