Apparently I hadn't updated my profile in quite some time, so I'm finally getting around to it. I moved to the northern VA area after grad school for work. I live and work way out on the fringes of the region, but like that it's rural, and my new commute is 20 minutes of farmland with no traffic (I am very happy about this). I'm still close to DC, Arlington, and all my good friends that moved up here after college as well.
As far as what I'm looking for - I'm really not sure. I'm open to a lot of different things. I'm kind of all over the place with my personality in general. I love doing just about anything, and love trying new things. I'd love to meet someone to just hang out with, go get a drink, watch movies, cook out, head out to wineries, play soccer with, or any other of the varied interests I have (or she has). I like the idea of being friends with someone first, taking it slow, and seeing where things go.
It seems like listing traits I'm interested would come across as trite, but here's my attempt anyway. I like smart, outgoing, athletic women. I like women who either work out regularly or play sports - someone that likes to be active. Someone who is healthy, eats right, all that sort of thing. Though I'll be the first to suggest making brownie sundays together, or end up drinking way too much catching up with some friends. I want to meet someone who is smart and can challenge me. Someone who is comfortable with who they are. Someone who is honest and straightforward, and doesn't like drama. If there's an issue, just say so - that's how you fix problems. I would like to meet someone who likes to cuddle up on the couch with a movie just as much as getting dolled up for a night out on the town. I tend to put a lot of effort in to most everything I do in life, always giving 100%, which goes for relationships as well, so I would like to meet someone who enjoys putting just as much forward.
