I'm new to Portland, moved here from North Carolina. I always feel strange describing myself; but here goes.... Currently I am very focused on accomplishing the goals I have set out for myself - the main one being the launch of my own company. My 'day job' is working at a large corporation as a loan officer. I enjoy my job and I if I do say so myself; I am good at it...however; I am anxious to become my own boss and have more flexibility.... Family, friends and my faith are the backbone my values. I am looking for friendship (and maybe more)....it would be nice to explore the city with someone I am compatible with. I have been hunkered down and working so much that I have not spend very much time exploring; and I would like to. Workingout is my stress reliever and I enjoy it. I workout approx. 5 times a week. Ideally, my future mate would enjoy fitness and working out as well. Speaking of the ideal woman for me...I would be compatible with someone that knows how to think for herself, can motivate herself work towards her goals / does not feel the need to be with someone 24 / 7. Snuggling and watching movies one night and then putting on dress and having a 'night on the town' the next would be great! Most importantly, I would want her to be laidback in the sense of not taking things too seriously .
