I'm a SoCal native who's finally going out on a limb and trying this! I have a BA in Sociology, work FT as a vet tech, and am getting ready to apply to nursing school. I love science, medicine, and learning about health and nutrition (I generally follow a Primal eating approach). I love to hike and camp outdoors, and I love to dance. I am smart, funny, witty, and sarcastic, but also kind, generous, and intuitive.
I have a strong personality and I've found that this is something I prefer in a guy as well (i.e. not chronically shy/quiet). I like men who, like me, are always working toward a goal, be it personal or professional. I'm definitely not Type A, but I do believe self-improvement should be a cornerstone in everyone's lives (although there's a lot to be said for acceptance, too!)
I like people who are outgoing and comfortable expressing themselves, and who are generally content with who they are. By the way, intelligence, good spelling, and good grammar are sexy!
Oh, and I can't leave out a good sense of humor :-)
