This is not an easy 'essay' to write... I want to have fun and be with someone that makes me happy. I want to be the one you turn to for support and a smile. I know my friends think I'm funny and beautiful. I find my comedy to be extremely situational so I'm best in a group and in fact thrive in that kind of environment. I find humor in pretty much anything; laughing about a situation makes me feel more comfortable and helps to find common ground with others. As for beautiful; it comes from the inside and out. I don't know that anyone has ever been stopped by my looks alone, I'm no model but I know what is considered attractive and I'm in that bracket.
It's true that when you smile you appear more attractive so I enjoy (again) humor and being challenged. I like 'thought-provoking' situations; maybe it's a movie, a piece of art, a play or live show - even street art, it can make you start a conversation of things you've never thought before and I enjoy that challenge. Also, I like activities like sports because they are fun - to be outside, cheering, drinking, eating giant bowls of nachos, all makes me smile. Achieving a goal, whether it is a deadline, a race, a group sport, whatever, is so gratifying.
For me I'm currently working on getting to know Pittsburgh. I just moved here in September to start over. I have lived here before and have family in the area so I knew I would be happy trying to start a new life and career here. I am also trying to get back into running so I am looking to do my first 5K soon. Since my friends and family think I should do stand-up I'd like to work up enough courage to try it out one day soon.
I am lucky to have so many great people in my life. I hope I can find someone to bring into this circle. He would have to be funny enough to make me laugh, smart enough to keep up in a casual conversation, kind enough to help out a friend or family member, fun enough to go out to see a Steelers game or live local band, cultured enough to enjoy a play or a museum, true enough to tell me this is not what you like to do and push me to try something else, assertive enough to make a decision, communicative enough to show me what you really think about things. I want to be able to be with a man that is an equal to me; we would be able to make each other the best person for each other.
I studied Communications at Penn State and am a very proud alumni. My whole family went to PSU so it's a tradition for us. I really enjoyed my college experience and learned that I will always be rediscovering who I am. I like to stay open minded and try not to be too judgemental. I love trying new things (and talking about them afterwards). I like to go out often. To special events like a community promo or new show and to friends' or families' homes for a bon fire or birthday party. A special occasion, like a promotion or an anniversary (not a random Tuesday or a weekly anniversary - who does that?!) deserves dinner and drinks. I like to stay in just as much and watch a movie or a great show on TV (like the Office or Modern Family). I still enjoy my alone time too or being able to coexist wihtout feeling like we have to constantly entertain one another.
I want to be able to rely on someone. I am a strong and dependable person and expect the same in return. I like to give it my all but know when to ask for help. I'd like to be able to laugh with someone, feel secure, raise a family, and create the life that fits only us. I am extremely family oriented. My family is so much fun and I love when we are sharing time. I want to introduce someone to them that seems like they should have been there all along.
