i hate the mushy part on the inside of tomatoes, i hate golf umbrellas on the streets of nyc, i hate sending my clothes to the cleaners and getting them back with new stains, i hate kitten calendars. haha....kidding (kind of). oh, and self-portraits taken in a mirror (sorry, but if i see one of these in your profile i am most likely hitting the "next option). now that you know all of my dislikes, here's a little more about me: laid-back (but motivated both professionally and personally), fun, thoughtful, drama-free, independent, good sense of humor, and if you don't speak sarcasm then we probably wouldn't hit it off.
i grew up in a small town in upstate NY surrounded by a loving family. my parents and grandparents have set wonderful examples of lasting relationships. i feel extremely lucky to have a family that has always supported me, and encouraged me to be independent.
i wasn't thrilled by the idea of creating a profile about myself and giving this a go, but i have a close friend who met their wonderful significant other on match (and they're both normal!) so, that has helped give me a push in this direction.
i could make a list of the attributes i hope you have, but at the end of the day it all boils down to having a good heart. this is a must.
