i moved to ft. lauderdale about 6 years from upstate ny to get away from the cold. the weather here is the best, the fact that my family is still in NY is the worst. however, we are great at keeping in touch with each other and visiting. i love them. i guess i am looking for someone who shares the same values as i do. i am very caring and would go out of my way for my family and any of my friends. i am attracted to those who are confident, outgoing, silly and can hold a conversation with just about anyone. i am not much for sitting in the house on a beautiful day...i'd rather be at the beach or having a bbq by the pool with friends and maybe a couple of drinks. i like to run and go to the gym, so someone athletic would be great.
