Should I just get all the typical cliches out of the way now so it's behind us? Nah. Let's see if I can get through this entire profile with no more than three of them.
I'm an incredibly lucky person in that I've grown up in the family I have. Mom and Dad are did more than I probably realize to provide for my sister and I, and I can't imagine having come this far in life without them. Honesty, character, manners, the value of a good education - yep, those were just some of the biggies they taught us. Yeah, I kinda like this famly of mine.
I'm not a native Chicagoan. I hail from the bustling cultural center that is Circleville, Ohio - home to the Greatest Free Show on Earth (it's true, I saw it on the internet. They can't put anything on the internet that isn't true). I loved growing up in a smaller town, but these days I enjoy what Chicago has to offer.
I love Italian food, BBQ, sushi, and mom's pumpkin bread. I'm happy with either a craft beer or a Miller Lite. I think each has it's time and purpose. I'm a fan of wine and bourbon, and am a recovering Mt Dewaholic. Please don't hold that last part against me. I've admitted my sins and have moved on.
I love playing volleyball, golf, and broomball with friends. If you aren't familiar with broomball, it's for people who can't play hockey but love to carry a big bag full of incredibly rank gear.
In case this is of any importance whatsoever, when it comes to the ol' boob tube I like my Modern Family, renovation shows on the DIY channel, and Gold Rush Alaska. I've learned more about mining in the Klondike than could ever possibly be useful to someone who lives in the midwest.
I'm looking for a best friend who will be my partner in crime in life, someone who's game for taking on this crazy adventure together. I want someone who puts family and friends above all the other things. I want someone who appreciates and loves the little things, pushes me to be my best, and is comfortable with a night on the town or a night in on the couch. And most importantly, I'm looking for someone who loves me for the imperfect person I am.
