Hi! I'm new to the area. I don't like writing these things. :) So what am I looking for in a guy? I'd like to find someone who is looking for something serious. Hopefully someone who realizes that people aren't perfect and relationships aren't perfect. It takes some effort and communication. It drives me crazy when people pout or start acting weird instead of just saying what the problem is. I think a common background and some common interests are important. We don't have to like all of the same things, of course. I like animals, listening to live music, going to the beach :), going out to dinner, watching a movie at home, running, hiking. I'd like to go to more plays and theater, haven't been in a long time. I like hanging out with small groups of friends. I'm not really into the bar or club scene. I don't mind nights in at home (especially in the winter--hate being cold :P ) I'm not good at dating people who need to be with me 24/7. Definitely want to spend time together, but it should be ok if I want to have a girls' night (or you want to hang out with the guys). I'd like to find someone who is positive and supportive, who accepts me for who I am, and wants to be team. I'm sure there's more (haha :P ), but this probably enough for now.
