I had a really long winded profile, but it turns out most people don't actually read them :) SO... here it goes in a nutshell:
I am honest to a fault, passionate about my job, and sometimes so sacrastic you won't know if I am being serious or not.
Who I'm looking for:
Someone interested in settling down and starting a family, but only if they find the right person. Someone who is honest, passionate about something, gives back to the community in some way, and is close with their family (but not so close thier mom lives upstairs).
The longer version:
I grew up in a northern suburb of Chicago and lived there until I was 18 and moved to Miami, FL for school. Moved to the fl keys after college for a year where I went to work in a bathing suit, flip flops, and sunscreen until I could no longer afford to live in paradise. From the keys I moved back to my parents house before landing a job in New Jersey working with dolphins, sea lions, monkeys, and some other cool stuff. Took a hiatus from that job to get a Master's degree in Primate Conservation across the pond (in Oxford, not at Oxford), then back to New Jersey before moving to Orlando. A couple years in Orlando as a contract employee for the mouse and thenImoved to Atlanta. 2 years later and here I am. I moved around to further my career and this past year I was promoted to a position I wasn't expecting to acheive for another 5-10 years so I plan on staying put for awhile. I wasn't close to my family growing up, but now I talk to my mom a couple times per week. I am extremely introverted and am not comfortable in large crowds, but I don't mind wading through the masses for an event/festival that's worth it. I like learning new things. I am a good listener. My mind works faster than my fingers so I am sure there are horrific grammer and spelling errors here. I promise I am literate and intellectual (on most occasions). I was never a partier, even as an undergrad, so you wont convince me the bar is a good place to be at 11:00PM on a Wednesday night.
Who I am Looking for:
Confident, self-motivated, and hard working. Cares about his appearance but doesn't have more shoes than me :) Cares about his image, but is okay if I laugh when he does something stupid. Has a sense of humor and uses it appropriately. Is not a gun tote-ing republican. Likes to learn. Speaks inteligently. Likes to go out to eat. Isn't super obsessed with self-improvement. Isn't alergic to cats. Wants kids. Is completely open to a long term relationshp that might lead to marriage. Is okay with making decisions about what to do on a Friday night (I hate deciding where to go). Is not a picky eater. Is open to trying new things that may seem silly/stupid. Dances at weddings. Has a close group of friends.I think covers the major things...
