I find fun in routine activities. I enjoy hosting dinner parties; before guests come over I have dance parties in the kitchen. sometimes I like to go to shakespeare theater or a ballet, a visiting art exhibit, concerts, etc; I'd like you to come. I'm an optimist, but I also consider myself practical. I've had a lot of cool life adventures, including travel, but other experiences too. I'm not great in explaining myself to strangers, it makes me a little uncomfortable, but I'm trying.
I'm independent, so to me since I'm ok with alone time its about being surrounded by quality people not quantity. I'm a little slow to warm up, but once I warm up, I have a lot to say. I'll give basically anything to my close friends and family. a friend recently told me I'm good at grounding my friends. I try to by very genuine with my friends, so I guess her compliment means I'm succeeding. Integrity, honesty and communication are very important to me. this sounds intense. I'm a little intense in a laid back way ;)
I'm looking for a partner for adventures and quiet time alike (I'm not a party animal, but not to be confused with boring! I just like mornings and feeling good too much for frequent hangovers). also: I like my job; I'm a morning person; I'm a good cook and I enjoy sharing that with others; I don't read enough; I like movies and tv; I love spending time outdoors, hiking, walks, kayaking; and I often prefer my favorite pizza or mexican restaurant over something fancy. Its definitely important to have core things in common, but someone just like me would probably be boring, so I guess I'm looking for a complimentary personality so that we can keep each other on our toes, best versions of ourselves.
I'm looking for someone active, adventurous, smart, lots of integrity, independent but open, and also comfortable and low key.
