I'm new to southern CA, a transplant from Seattle, so bare with me on not having the Cali-lingo down. I'm a hard working, professional girl looking for someone to spend more time with and develop a relationship, and go from there. I love the area and exploring it, and spend most my free time outside and with friends. I'm big into fitness and staying active, beach volleyball and hiking, played sports since I could walk, skiing since I was five, basketball in college, then got into the triathlon scene which is like a drug it's so addictive, and I miss it. Don't get me wrong, football is my favorite sport, I'm a nut about it! Traveling is very important part of life for me as well, and I've grown up traveling all over the world. That piece of my life has slowed down with this whole 'career' thing going on, but I'm on a mission to pick it back up. Although I love venturing to beaches and beautiful weather, we have a lot of that here, and I'm anxious for some adventure and culture, so that's where I want to head next. Sailing in the Mediterranean is a dream and exploring the islands and coastlines, hiking in South America, staying in one of those over-the-water bungalows in Tahiti, exploring Prague and Moscow, hiking in Spain and working on my salsa dancing, South America too, and of course I need to see the Grand Canyon and hike rim to rim. OK, that's enough for now!
I've met guys where we have similar interests, but we just don't connect nor really have fun together... and I want that connection across all bands. I've had friends say "Oh you'll find it, it's so easy, there are so many!" I fully disagree. I think it's rare. It doesn't help that I'm shy, but my alter-ego will ask a guy out here and there... ok that's a lie, it's only happened twice. Ever had that amazing 'feeling' with someone? I have rarely, and of course it's what anyone would want, and I don't believe it's common.
The online thing is relatively new to me, so trying to get beyond my comfort zone. I'm not in a hurry, so although I'm writing these things about what I want, I'm far from jumping into something which isn't right. I'm interested in meeting new people, experiencing new things, and exploring not only this area, but each other a bit and hopefully finding something which is good for both of us.
On another note, I've read some really great profiles on here. I'm keeping my write-up pretty summarized... well, sort of. I'm not talking about my upbringing, siblings, history, beliefs, favorite foods, how I paint my toe nails, etc. etc. If we click on a very basic level, then we'll discuss more if we ever meet. Fair?
