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. But I can also look damn good when I put on a dress and heels! On a day to day basis 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, healthier and more alive. I'm lucky enough not to have to obsess at all about my weight.

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, 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 as they tell me about their 3 year old's new life phase, a cup of coffee on the front porch in the sunshine, or when my dog comes up to the bed each morning and greets me with a "Happy New Day! You must be super excited too!!". Despite attempting to make life as meaningful as I know how I refuse to say that I am "living life to the fullest" because honestly I'm still trying to figure out what that h*** that means to me. I've got nothing figured out, may never figure it out, but that's ok...I'll keep trying.

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. It was by far the biggest and best decision I've ever made. I'm loving the west coast; but I could honestly probably be happy anywhere with the right people around me.

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 like beer, sports and meat! But also pedicures, romantic comedies, and dresses. Like every other human on this site I enjoy traveling - I lived abroad for a year in high school, have friends and family in other countries, and earlier this year spent 3.5 weeks in Kenya. I travel to experience the culture though not necessarily to check off the sights.

Any activity that takes me outdoors is a huge win for me but I love camping and backpacking. To me heaven is sitting around a fire (or camp stove at altitude) at night after a long hike looking up at the stars. I've managed to do a couple of backpacking trips since I arrived in California, including a few solo trips since its been difficult to find other willing participants.... Interested?

And just a little reminder as we all go through this process together..."On the other side of awkward is awesome" Happy Matching!
