Sooooo... I got a little over-zealous with the photos but that's coz I perused some profiles prior to joining match and one of the main grouses by folks were "up to date photos"....and I got a little nostalgic looking at some travel shots too (so I blame that) but now you have a better idea of who I am and what I like to do.. Traveling is definitely one of them. I've been to a fair number of countries and I'm totally up for "repeats" though I like to going to new countries, seeing their culture, life etc...
So I'm quite new to this area.. moved here from New Haven after grad school for work. Figured I'll give match a shot since I've been pretty focused on getting to where I want to be right now...........So about me..
I'm an independent individual who likes to think I have a decent head on my shoulders. I play hard, but I think I tend to work and work out harder. In grad school, I held a couple of part-times jobs like bar-tending, teaching spin and tutoring in addition to my real job .. research so you can say I'm diversified. =) I'm always up for good music, drinks and great conversation or enjoy being curled up with kettle corn and a good show/book. I'd say I'm an endurance/cardio junkie , though at times, I throw weights around unhappily. Family's real important and I'm a sucker for being guilt-ed into things... Hah
I'm super straightforward and will totally say it as it is....Hypocrisy is one of my pet peeves.. if you don't mean it, don't say it.. chew on gum or something.. I am fairly open minded and adventurous when it comes to trying new things/activities. Done paragliding, abseiling, white water/river kayaking, got my license for scuba diving and I love the water..
When it comes to dating, I am looking for a dude who is sincere, honest and just GETS me .. =) We would be best pals. Easy conversation with sarcastic/humorous bantering would be awesome. It would be nice if he values fitness as much as I do and is able to laugh with me and at me.
Things happen for a reason, so here I am, giving this a shot and hoping only good things come out of it :)
