I recently moved from New York (Manhattan) to Baltimore for work (without knowing anyone). I work in critical care and have a crazy, amazing, scary, intense, beautiful, difficult job. I am an outgoing, fun-loving, talkative girl with a big personality and lots of opinions. I am an intellectual, but I have my "dumb blonde" moments. I love knowledge and I'm extremely intellectually curious and inquisitive.
I am fun, funny, laid-back, high-strung, passionate, compassionate, sensitive, rough and inexplicably high and low maintenance at the same time. If I care about you, it is my ultimate goal and pleasure to make you happy; putting a smile on the face of those I care about is a fulfilling and integral part of my life.
Yes I can be sassy, but I am woman..hear me roar. I'm confident and insecure, so pretty much I'm human; go figure. I have a crass sense of humor and appreciate those who can make me laugh too. I have my bitchy moments, and I can be demanding. I am also extremely giving. I believe that knowing my flaws is the first step to improving upon them. Self-improvement is a hobby of mine. I am open and honest and I would like to be with someone who appreciates me for who I am. I am willing to offer the same.
I am a reformed party girl, but I still know how to have a good time. These days I enjoy discovering a new restaurant, sampling drinks at a mixology bar/speakeasy, or just staying in and lounging. I can still hang until the sun comes if need be ;-)
I love to travel and want to see the world; I need a travel buddy however, and you must love beaches. For fun, I love a good Sunday brunch or anything that involves margaritas/martinis. As the cold months approach, it's looking more like red wine, warm apple cider, whiskey and snuggling. I consider myself to be very adventurous and love trying new restaurants, cuisines, cities, and activities.
In my spare time I: study/research (both the important and the obscure), teach myself how to cook, watch embarrassing TV, get stuck in a web of Wikipedia, force myself to go to the gym several times a week (HIIT and weights, ouch), and spend time with my dogs, friends and family. I am constantly looking to improve myself physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally. Growing and evolving are my major priorities. When I'm not "growing", I love to be lazy and lounge in bed ;-) Bed lounging is one of my favorite pastimes. Fleece sheets FTW.
I am looking for someone who is chivalrous, hysterically funny, intelligent, ambitious, communicative, confident and insightful. Athletic/fit with some swag would be nice :-D Chemistry, above all else, is the greatest determinant. I am definitely looking for something serious with long-term potential, so you should be like-minded in that regard.
I am in a transitional phase at the moment, but I know where I'm headed. The most important thing in life is to be surrounded by people you love: friends, family, and a partner. This comes first. Second in line is building my ideal life. I am striving for a successful career and an equally ambitious partner. I want to conquer the world, but I would like to do it with someone by my side.
