Hi There! I am originally from sunny southern California, but I recently moved to the Bay Area for work this past June. Needless to say, this place is so cool! I love the diversity of the city, and being of Scandinavian heritage, I actually prefer the cooler temperatures :).
As for my personality, I am a fun loving, caring person who always recognizes the deeper meanings in life. I am an artistic person with a very imaginative and philosophical mind. That being said, I am looking for someone who is neato/slightly quirky like I am! I love music, good food, candy, coffee, sunny days, laughing, singing, painting, and drawing.
I am also very active and enjoy running and hiking, so I need someone who is energetic and active like I am. I was a competitive distance runner in college, and I still run a lot...I'm talking 60-70 miles per week. Exercise is my form of entertainment....it's that much fun for me! I can put on my headphones, and crank out 10-mile run listening to Bassnectar or Lana Del Rey on my Pandora...total bliss for me :). My career revolves around the sport of distance running, so being fit is pretty high on my "list." I do not expect perfection by any means, but you must at least enjoy exercising!
So what else...I am on match.com because I am hoping to find someone who is ready to be in a monogamous relationship. I understand the importance of dating different people to learn about what I like and do not like, but when I find a winner, I am a one man kind of woman. If I find a catch, I'll treat him as such, and I want to be treated the same way.
I'm here because it's pretty difficult to meet people these days, and I like how Match allows me to search for people who are looking for similar qualities and relationships as I am. I'd like to find someone to spend my free time with, care for, and wants to be in a committed relationship with me. Although dating is a lot of fun, there is nothing better than being understood, cared for, and intimately known by one special person. Having someone to hug and snuggle, watch movies with, go for hikes and road trips with is far better than going out every weekend with someone new.
We all need companionship and affection, and to me, a relationship should be full of that! I would like a man in my life who is my best friend and lover. I'm quite a traditional lady at heart, so I really like the feeling of being protected and cared for by a man. Although I love being independent and striving for goals and dreams, I still want to be treated like somebody's little sweetheart. I want to be cherished and loved because that is what I give in return.
Anyway, if you think we might be a good match, let's chit chat :)
