I sing songs to my dog...I usually make up the lyrics. He probably does not enjoy it as much as I do.
I am pretty comfortable with who I am, where I am in my life, and who I am becoming, imperfections and all.
I'm liberal, somewhat of a bleeding heart, but open-minded and open to conversations and different viewpoints.
I find it hilarious that match.com has a "highlighting" option when you read someone's profile.
I'm beginning to realize that, while I lead a fairly "non-traditional" life (whatever that means), have been an independent person for most of my life and I can certainly take care of myself, I have somewhat traditional views on dating. I like phone calls. I like dates that are thought-out and planned, but I like spontaneity too. I like for a man to put forth effort. I like the dance of a courtship.
I love music in general and love all types of music. I love going to see live shows.
I'm a t-shirt and jeans kind of a woman who likes to wear dresses. I like cleaning up but don't mind getting my hands dirty.
I love to read. I have several favorites that I read yearly. That lists seems to keep getting longer.
I like to start my day with a morning run or yoga. I'm active and like to workout 4-5 days a week...true story.
I'm not someone you can judge by my appearance.
I've realized that in dating you're kind of damned if you do and damned if you don't....until you find the right person. So you might as well be you. Someone will come along and like you just the way you.
One of my absolute favorite things to do in the world is get into the kitchen, play some amazing music, and dance my booty off while cooking a fabulous dish.
I'm sarcastic and quick-witted and pretty effin funny, if I do say so myself. :)
I've traveled to nearly 30 countries. I've lived in a few, including 2 in Africa (HIV research in Zambia and maternal and child health work in Ethiopia). I love to travel...it is a passion. I like to settle myself into different cultures. I just got back from a 4 week vacation traveling through Europe. It was amazing and I am now in love with Paris, Berlin, London, Istanbul, and Vathi-Samos.
I'm fairly spontaneous. And I'm pretty strong-willed.
I like football...In pro-ball, I'm a Saints woman. In college ball, I'm a Dawg all the way.
I think cuddling on a Sunday is the best way to spend a morning. And if it's raining, then that is near perfection.
Funny...like hysterical, sarcastic, funny.
Respectful and courteous. You know how to treat a woman...even one who is independent and strong-willed.
Complimentary and thoughtful.
Have a nice smile and kind eyes.
A gentleman..like opens doors, pulls out chairs, calls me on the phone, makes-a-person-feel-taken-care-of type of gentleman.
You are not racist, homophobic, or a bigot.
Speak your mind, even if it makes you uncomfortable. But you're kind and respectful with your words.
Someone who can challenge me and teach me new things, but is also willing to learn from me.
On the flip side of that coin is patience.
Comfortable in t-shirts and jeans and makes it your "go to" outfit for most occasions. But also realizes a well-tailored suit is to women what lingerie is to men...
Like to travel, discover new hideaways, see new countries.
Willing to put yourself out there and be silly with me.
Like funny movies (Anchorman, Super Bad,Old School, Hangover, The Campaign) and have a bit of edge to you...maybe tattoos and a beard. Sleeves are hot.
Know the difference between you, your, you're, and there, they're, their.
Enjoy leaving the house for a night on the town..dinner, drinks, meeting up with friends; but you also really enjoy staying in, cooking dinner, and watching a movie or some football
