Im a mental health therapist who lives in Greensburg, Pennsylvania. I feel very fortunate for the life Ive been afforded and the ability to help people on a daily basis. I'm very outgoing and friendly, and people tell me I need to shut up some times! When Im not working, you can find me at the gym, where I love to run and lift weights. I haven't gotten there yet, but my goal is to bench 300 pounds someday! I have a Master's Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy, and a Minor in Journalism, and I write for a News site on the side. IIm looking for someone who is affable as well, is willing and likes to travel, and has a sense of adventure. Someone who loves their family, or, if they don't have one, is willing to get to know mine! I don't party like I used to, but I still like to go out and have a good time. I have two tattoos, one on each forearm, and take great pride in my appearance. I spend way too much money on clothing!
I'm looking for someone to enjoy life with: Im happy to make my significant other feel lie the most important and only woman in the world. Someone who will challenge me and push me to be my best, and will allow me to do the same. Someone who is open about themselves, and enjoys conversation. I love to watch and play sports, especially my Pittsburgh teams, and Im a passionate basketball player! Id love to go one on one with you some day! I have an active lifestyle, but I take the time to reflect and remember. My faith is important to me.
First and foremost, I'm looking for a relationship in which I have a best friend, and can be a best friend, one in which we challenge each other intellectually, and support one another emotionally.Im willing to do whatever it takes to make my significant other feel happy and cared for. Sounds ideal, right? Don't be afraid to make mistakes, adventerous, and most importantly, yourself! I'm not going to analyze you, so relax and be yourself! More importantly, communicate! If you have skeletons...be upfront. I don't scare easy, but springing something on me later is a dealbreaker. Honesty is extremely important to me. Id rather you tell me right away then find out later.
If there's something you like to do, and I don't, drag me along with you, because I'm going to do the same to you! Like being cooked for? We've got a starting place already! Be prepared to cook with me! If you enjoy watching sports, great, if you enjoy playing them, even better! Enjoy being outside, but enjoy kissing and cuddling on the couch as well. And get used to me singing to you.....:-)
Conversation is extremely important to me. Whether it be over coffee, at dinner, or in the car, be prepared for me to be talking, if you're not! At the same time, don't be afraid to tell me to shut up if you want the quiet time with me. For me, someone who is willing to compromise without sacrificing their values is extremely attractive as well!
I think the type of memorable first date you have depends on how well you know the person. If it's someone I've spent the time getting to know, be it online or in real life, and think I'm already attracted to, then a memorable first date could be several hours long...dinner and dancing or something similar would be my choice so that we could talk and get to know one another even better.
One of the most enlightening dates I have been on is when we played role reversal. She wanted to plan the date, drive the car, open the car door, open the door to the restaurant, talk to the waiter, decide what wine to order, order the meal for me, (without my input!), and this was our first date! Don 't worry, I still paid! But it was a nice feeling of what it was like to be in someone else's shoes, and if someone is up for it, I'd be willing to do it again!
