I'm originally from Wisconsin but have lived in California for about 8 years now. I have to say I absolutely love it here. How do you grow tired of it being 75 and sunny every day. I still can't believe it. I love to take advantage of that weather and spend time outside being active as much as possible. I like to spend my weekends at the beach or hiking. I'm pretty laid back and don't really take myself very seriously. I am very sarcastic and believe laughter is key to any relationship or friendship. I still have a lot of my midwestern ideals and would like to find someone that values family and friends over money and possessions. Seems like a given but harder to find than I thought. I come from a big family, I have 4 sisters, 2 brothers, and about 19 nieces and nephews. And no I am not mormon or mexican. Anyway I would like to find someone with similar interest. Someone who is nice, kind, honest, funny, and who can just as easily have a conversation with a 5 year old or a 90 year old. I am very affectionate and think its weird when couples don't hold hands in public or show affection of any kind in front of friends and family. Anyway just seeing whats out there and hoping to find someone with similar interests.
