When a guy once called me "laid back" my best friend laughed and explained I am just the opposite, I am "laid forward."
I am uptight and neurotic and prone to anxiety. I am a New Yorker who likes to move fast, even though most people are shocked to learn I grew up in the city because I am kind, and friendly, and smile a lot. I still give money to homeless people even though I know I shouldn't.
I am a study in contradictions: I am a NYC girl with a midwest personality. I am an old soul who knits and bakes and likes to go for 5:00am runs along the river. I am studious and silly. I like shopping (or at least looking) in Soho and I like backpacking in the Vermont woods. I am strong and I am vulnerable.
I hope to find someone who respects my vulnerability as well as my intelligence. I have high aspirations -- to become a physician, to travel the world, to have a family, to open my own clinic -- and I am looking for someone who also aims high. I don't care what you look like or how old you are, but anyone I date must share three criteria (determined through unfortunate experiences):
1. Must not be married
2. Must know how to spell and use proper grammar
3. Must not be a Republican
If you fit those three criteria, I will give you a chance. I am incredibly open minded. And, despite everything, I still believe in the possibility of love, and happiness, and really cute puppies! I also believe that rainbow sprinkles go with everything. And umbrellas are against my religion.
