In some ways I'm a bit of a throwback: I open doors, pull out chairs and I'll hold your hand and treat you like a princess; but I won't coddle you or put you in a traditional gender role: I'll challenge and push you and I expect the same in return.
I am at a place where I am happy with who I am today but, at the same time, want to be better for tomorrow. I live for new experiences and I embrace my adventurous and inquisitive side often – which has led to a variety of activities from scuba diving to Tough Mudder. I like to eat and I LOVE to cook… mostly healthy, but not always. I love things that make me laugh and I have a quirky, sarcastic sense of humor and a lack of filters so if something seems funny in my head odds are good that I'm going to say it out loud. Despite being straight and having no kids yet, I love Disney and have an annual pass to Disneyland so 10 points if you have one too. I have a good job, stable income and retirement investments (not just in a jar on top of my fridge!). I enjoy finding new ways to challenge myself, both physically (rock climbing, parkour, CrossFit) and mentally (I lose hours on end to Wikipedia reading about anything and everything.)
I'm looking for someone that challenges herself; someone that knows where she wants to be in life and is actively taking steps to get there… someone that I can have an intellectual conversation with but also unwind and spend a low-key day at the beach with. I am hopeless romantic that believes in grandiose gestures; I'm just looking for someone worth putting the effort into that will appreciate it and reciprocate.
Also, grammar and spelling are sexy.
