I'm looking someone with common interests, gets just as excited about silly things as I do (I am pretty high energy and have been known to squeal when I'm elated), and that I have true chemistry with. I'm not one for sitting around at home unless there is a monsoon (or most recently a hurricane) outside. I can't say I "love to curl up with a good book" or love a "lazy Saturday" because I don't--I like to be out running, exploring, soaking up sun, or traveling.
I'm a good conversationalist, witty, and sarcastic, you need to be able to take my digs (I can take them too). My career is important to me as are my personal relationships with family and friends and living a healthy lifestyle. One quality that people say that I have is my "ability" to go off on tangents. Its not that I get bored or have an attention disorder (well, none diagnosed), I just have a lot to say and ideas always pop into my head. So in order to exhibit how I think, below is a semi-innerdialagoue of what happens when I try to describe myself.
I am a forensic accountant. After 10 years of avoiding the test, I'm finally getting my CPA. I've taken two parts so far and passed, two more to go. So yes, unfortunately I am doing a decent amount of indoor studying these days. It will all be worth it soon. Back when I should have taken the test, I just wanted to be social and enjoy NYC. I guess I've grown up a bit, or, just have less of a social life.
As for my social life, I love going out to nice dinners, music shows and festivals, wine bars, karaoke, and having random nights where we end up dancing in a bar til 3 am with creepy guys.
If you are creepy guy though, I'll run away from you. Literally--I am runner. I've ran 4 half marathons and have qualified (did my 9 1) to enter into NYC marathon 2013. My long weekend runs (and working out in general) are like coffee to me, I can't start my weekend without one.
Which brings me to coffee. I don't drink it. I live off my natural "high on life" and my addiction to diet coke (okay, okay, I know I'm still getting caffeine that way).
Speaking of addiction, I am addicted hot tamales. Not the veggie, the candy. I love all things cinnamon but this candy is always my answer to the question "if you could bathe in one foodcandysubstance, what would it be?"
Which brings me to be bathing, its important. Please do it before we meet.
In the end, I'm looking for someone that has the same values as I do, has a great sense of humor, that I have chemistry with, and likes to do everything I like to do. Is that really so much to ask for? ;-)
