First and foremost, my ideal match will love Jesus! He will also be tall (6'0 and taller), active/athletic, funny/fun-loving, kind, caring, understanding, ambitious, romantic, and share lots of the interests below, especially a passion for travel and trying new things! These are all traits that I'll bring to the table, and would love for my Match to, well, match them! :)
People close to me would describe me as an adventurous, driven person with a big heart. I understand that the harder I work, the harder I can play! I'm fortunate to have a career in the field I studied in college (Marketing) and a job I actually enjoy! I always strive for excellence. Accepting mediocrity is a huge turn-off, along with lack of ambition. I'm a hard worker, not a workaholic. I am very family-oriented. And one day, after I meet and marry my McDreamy, I want to start a family of my own.
I regularly volunteer with a local pediatric cancer organization and weekly at my church. I love art and though I can't draw I do dabble in graphic design.
I like to stay active. I cycle, play volleyball and praise dance weekly, and play on a recreational co-ed softball team. I'm (brand spanking) new to golf, but I have a set of clubs just dying to get some use. Anyone want to tee off?!
I LOVE traveling! And i have a lengthy list of destinations I want to visit. Costa Rica is already on the calendar for this year (July!) SUPER excited about that! Locally, I enjoy going to see plays/performances at the theatre. I enjoy going to live sporting events and (during football season) sports bars. I like going out to wine bars and to hear live music. I like rollercasters, amusement/water parks, etc. I went white water rafting for the first time last year and loved it! Can't wait to try skiing/snowboarding!
Like I said, I love being active, but it's good to balance that with regular spa days (kidding, well, sort of ;-). I love to relax and enjoy some leisure time: indoors, at home with glass of wine and some jazz or occassionally curl up on the sofa with a RedBox movie with a fire going: or in nature, relaxing at the beach listening to the waves or a stroll around the neighborhood or picnic in the park (cliche, i know) and although I don't do bugs, I want to try camping. I LOVE trying new things!
Basically, I love to laugh. I love to be active. I love to love and be loved. I'm tall. I can be sarcastic and witty when I want to be. I'm from the South so I love good food! I know how to cook a variety of dishes, but my go-to dishes seem to be pasta and seafood based. On any given day, I more likely to quote commercials than lines from any movies (hey, I'm in marketing!). My iPad has recently reignited leisure reading for me. I grew up watching Cosby Show and Fresh Prince and pretty much think that's the way families should be in real life too :) I am NOT perfect. But I will be perfect for someone (and he will be perfect for me. Maybe, just maybe, match.com will be the way we meet.
Sorry this was so lengthy. If you read all this and are interested, email me!
