I would describe myself as being loyal, sincere, considerate, funny, super sarcastic, exciting, adventurous, charismatic, very laid back, outgoing, intelligent (I'm modest I swear), fun-loving and kind of a romantic. I have a fear of the mundane and really love trying new things. My friends tend to come from all different walks of life and I can get along with just about anyone so open-mindedness is a desirable trait . I really enjoy traveling and have been all over the US and Alaska, Austrailia (studied there for 6 months), Jamaica, the UK, Germany, Netherlands, the Czech Republic, Costa Rica and India. I'd like to take a wine tour of Napa and Sonoma. I love anything related to the beach and would one day like to live on the coast (although I might be persuaded to live in or near the mountains). I like surfing, boating, fishing, diving, you name it. I would also consider myself to be a sponge for useless popculture knowledge. I love reading (always trying to learn new things/smarts is a turn-on) and I'm very passionate about music and love going to shows when I can. I have pretty eclectic tastes, but my faves are Alternative and Indie. I'm also very much into nature and love the outdoors, but don't mind dressing up for a night out to experience a little culture. My favorite smell is orange blossoms in the springtime. I think scary movies are awesome. I wish more people in this country would escape their microcosms for a bit and explore foreign lands and cultures. One of the most important qualities a person can have is a good sense of humor. I really love it when someone can make me laugh till I have tears in my eyes; gotta be one of the best feelings in the world. I tend to joke pretty frequently and can lay the sarcasm on pretty thick at times so I really apprecaite quick-witted, intellegent folks. I'm always thoroughly impressed when people can get through a conversation without having to interject the word "like" 20 times. I definitely prefer an active lifestyle as opposed to a sedentary one and staying active and healthy is important to me. I guess it's all about balance. I'm always striving to better myself and I would like to, somehow, leave this world a better place than when I entered it. Generally speaking, I'm looking for a fun, outgoing, laidback but confident person who is passionate about life with a killer wit that can make me laugh. They would also enjoy the outdoors and having a fondness for the beach and water would definitely be a plus. I'm not really into the 24/7 high maintence look or women who love to surround themselves with constant drama. I just find it unnecessary and really don't dig it. Wow, I've never written so many sentences starting with "I". It makes me feel conceited. Anyway, I'd love to meet a fun, intelligent person with a great sense of humor. That 'der just 'bout wraps it up.
