ABOUT HER & WHO SHE'S LOOKING FOR

My kind of guy is the one in the back of the room with nothing to prove because he's confident in who he is, knows what he wants, and doesn't need to be the center of attention to feel better about himself. I prefer strength of character over good looks. I'm looking for someone who shares my fundamental values (e.g., a positive outlook, healthy lifestyle, kindness, exploration of mind/body/soul, and a love for the outdoors). I'm laid back (by east coast standards), outdoorsy, very analytical, logical and not the least bit showy. I wear very little makeup and try to embrace myself just the way I am. I choose to eat healthy and exercise because it makes me feel stronger and more alive not because it makes me thinner.

Although like many I seek a balance between work and life, I am career-minded, driven and successful. I like a challenge but I also love to learn. When faced with two job options last spring, I took the one that I was less qualified for, offered me less support, was going to be more demanding, and paid me less ... really I couldn't say no since they were willing to let me bring my dog to work... and I'm happy to report I've learned a ton.

I try very hard to remain aware and thankful for life's simplest pleasures. I truly believe its the little moments that make life great... like a run after work with my girlfriends, a cup of coffee on the front porch in the sunshine, or when my dog comes up to the bed each morning to wish me a "Happy new day! You must be super excited too!!".

I grew up in rural northern NY, went to college in Ithaca, and then moved to Maryland for work. I was there for 10 years before quitting the only professional job I ever had, packing up the car, and driving west. It was time to be closer to my dearest friends and younger brother. And by far it was the biggest and best decision I've ever made. I love the west coast.

I like men who are strong, practical and level-headed but also goofy, adventurous and loving. I am inquisitive and a debater by nature so if you like a girl who agrees with you most of the time I'm probably not a good fit. I enjoy traveling - I lived abroad for a year in high school, have friends and family in other countries, and just returned from 3.5 weeks in Kenya. Any activity that takes me outdoors is a win for me but I love camping and backpacking - both are a continued must have in my life. To me heaven is sitting around a fire (or camp stove out here) at night after a long hike looking up at the stars. I've managed to do a couple of multi-day overnight backpacking trips since I arrived in California (Emigrant Wilderness, Trinity Alps, Henry Coe) but looking forward to a lot more...
