Where to begin...
I like to think I'm a pretty simple woman looking for someone to share the laughes and tears with.
I am a very independent woman who isn't looking for someone to take care of me, but rather challenge me to become better. I've always been very driven in life and grounded in my faith. I definitely have a sarcastic side, but all out of fun. I love to laugh and have a positive outlook on life and love. I believe in love and that the happily ever after can exist if both parties are willing to work at the relationship. I'm a realist in the same breath that I'm an idealist.
I have always been a huge sports fan. I was a huge tomboy growing up and was usually the only girl playing football at recess. I cherish the years of my youth where I played baseball with the boys and was only one of two girls on the all-star basketball teams. Sports have been a huge part of my life and I've learned (and continue to learn) many valuable life lessons through them. I was fortunate enough to play two sports in college (basketball and golf) and am even more fortunate now to work in intercollegiate athetics. I take my job very seriously and I absolutely love what I do.
Family is also a huge part of who I am. I am the middle of five siblings and am grateful to have wonderful parents. My sibilings, while all so completely different, have all had a part in shaping who I have become.
Friends, too, are some of the most cherished of life's blessings. I have a great group of women that I'm friends with from elementary school as well as a number of great guys.
For fun, I love hanging out with friends and family. I enjoy trying new things and hitting the town. I try to get out to sporting events, concerts, the movies, etc. I am originally form Philadelphia and much of my family still lives there today so...I'm a fan of all the professional Philly teams. I enjoy traveling and am more than willing to take a trip just about anywhere.
I also love the beach, hot weather, and all that fun stuff that comes with it. My goal one day would be to live within walking distance to the beach or at least have a second home or condo within walking distance of the beach.
As for what I'm looking for...
Physical attraction is necessary (although I don't really have a type...this is something that is just there or not).
Self-motivated and driven.
Is looking to challenge me and be challenged to become a better person.
Is confident enough to be in a relationship with a strong, independent woman.
Does not like to play the jealousy, guilt, drama-filled games.
Interested in sports -playing, watching, all of the above.
Lives a healthy lifestyle (don't get me wrong...I indulge in moderation)
So, I've been told I'm a little picky, but I think it is ok for all of us to have an ideal in mind and to be hesitant to settle or become content with someone that won't make you happy.
I am much more easy-going and fun-loving than what this profile may come across to be. Let's give it a try...what's the worse that can happen?!?!?
