I would say I'm a down to earth, drama free, confident, outgoing girl who is just as happy baking in the kitchen and relaxing at home as I am heading to Las Vegas or San Diego for the weekend or singing karaoke with friends at the local hole in the wall. I'm loving, affectionate, I love my family/friends, I would say I have a sarcastic (funny) sense of humor, but also have a sweet side with old-fashioned values. I'm a hopeless romantic that is looking for love, and knowing that life is short and goes quick I hope to find a wonderful guy to have some fun with.
I’m successful in my career and enjoy what I do, but I think having a work/life balance is really important and I enjoy staying active in my free time. Between dance classes, going to the gym, writing screenplays for fun, or taking my grandma out to the casinos there’s not much I won’t try or have fun doing. I love wine tasting, going to the beach (don't know how to surf but would love to learn) and traveling to new places whenever I get the chance. Last summer I went on an amazing 2 week tour through Europe- it was definitely the best experience of my life. Went to London, Amsterdam (my fav place), St Goar, Munich (I got to jump in a river after a bike ride through the city), Austria (schnaps = amazing), Venice (did a gondola ride), Rome (did the Vatican tour and the Colosseum even though it was hotter than hell), Florence, Lucerne (went up a swiss mtn) and Paris (did a night tour of the Eiffel Tower). This summer I'll be doing a 15 day tour of Spain- I plan on drinking only sangria the entire time I am there.
I’d love to find a man who is fun, outgoing, active, adventurous, chivalrous enough to open doors, successful in his own career but has a good work/life balance and enjoys going out and living life. I also want a man who isn't afraid to call a woman to ask her out like a true gentleman. Not sure why men have such an aversion to phone calls in general (I promise I won't talk your ear off for hours telling you about every minute of my day, what happened on Keeping Up With The Kardashians (I don't really watch this), or how adorable my friend's baby is).
Favorite things in the world: Traveling, my dog Ginger, Bourbon (Wild Turkey American Honey is delicious), wine, my homemade chocolate chip cookies (I literally bake the best cookies in the world- just ask my dad), laying on the beach in the warm sun, babies (I'm fortunate to have a lot of friends who have a lot of cute babies that I can play with and then return), melon flavored chapstick, scary movies, Lemon Fanta (which is referred to as lemonade in Greece even though it's clearly not lemonade), spicy tuna on crispy rice, old school Nintendo (I have my original Nintendo and Super Nintendo - playing makes me feel like a kid again), sleeping in and the lobster sushi truck that comes by my office every once in a while (best lobster tacos you'll ever have).
Biggest pet peeves: People who can't return shopping carts and leave them by my car when the return area is 5 feet away, people who leave their dogs in cars, people who sneeze without covering their mouth, people who go 30 mph when the speed limit is 45 and you're stuck behind them, being stuck in the middle seat on really long planerides, THE BACHELOR and all the contestants on The Bachelor and grown women that talk like Kim Kardashian or Paris Hilton- you know the type who drag out what they say and speak in squeaky high pitched tones "ooooo my god yeeeeeah toooootally like yeeeah" You should be slapped if you talk like that!
