My friends always tease me that I'm too wrapped up in my career, that I forget to send out the "vibe." Yes, I love my job (most days), I'm happy with the person I am (but who couldn't stand to lose a few pounds), and even though I won't admit this to my married friends, I envy them. I mean, who doesn't want to come home to their best friend after a long day at work?? So no, I don't want to get married tomorrow, or even in the next 2-3 years, but I do what the someone in my life who wants to watch cheesy 80's movies and stay up all night talking about everything under the sun, and then call in sick in the morning just to stay in bed all day (assuming you have a job and don't live with your parents).
I'm not your typical "girlie girl". I grew up on a farm, raising pigs and cattle, so I like head home to the family farm to get dirty every once in awhile. I am your typical girl in the sense that my closet is filled with clothes and that I have an opinion on most relevant subjects (yes, I really do enjoy watching sports, no I do not want to join your fantasy football league). I'm fluent in sarcasm, and effectively stumble my way through some French (lived in Toulouse for 4 months) and Spanish (hello high school Spanish, you weren't completely useless, see: Barcelona). I'm so terrible at golf, that I actually do enjoy playing from time to time. I'm constantly on the go, and I rarely slow down, but when I do slow down I enjoy a good read (sometimes a good read is just a smutty one) and some Dos Equis. (Stay thirsty my friends??)
My parents instilled in me from a every young age to strive for your best, and in my journey for my personal best I've see some amazing things. I've see the sunrise in the Pyrenees Mountains, the sunset under the Eiffel Tower, and partied to the early mornings in Barcelona. I've also seen some crazy and frankly disturbing things, but we'll leave the stories for another day.
I'm old fashioned when it comes to dating, I like the door to be held for me, send a text just to say hi (a phone call, email, or smoke signal will also suffice), and to show up to my office just because you were in the neighborhood. If you don't mind getting muddy, and sarcasm is also your second language, proceed with caution. Just kidding.
