I've been back for about a year now after spending the last 7 years in Atlanta, GA. Though I enjoyed my time down South at heart I'm a true Yankee!! I needed to be closer to my family and friends here and have no regrets leaving the ATL. Since coming back I've learned to appreciate things I'd taken for granted before (state parks, the lakes, free concerts at Artpark, The Falls, ethnic Buffalo restaurants, etc.)
I love to play sports; very passionate about running! Enjoy casual drinking and prefer pubs over clubs. Also enjoy reading, movies, music. Love going to concerts! Music taste ranges from Bruce Springsteen to Andrea Boccelli. Open to trying new, exciting stuff - skydiving, whitewater rafting, adventure races, etc. Thinking about buying a kayak but only for the lower river.....
I'm REAL close to my family, not sure if it's an Italian thing but pretty protective of them, they mean everything to me. Middle sister in Dallas, TX and father and youngest sis in WNY. Love to laugh and make jokes but can be serious as well. I've learned you need to enjoy each day and be blessed for what you have, life's too short to be miserable. Like to travel; usually take 5-6 mini-trips each year - long weekends to visit family, the beach, or mountains.
As far as what I'm looking for - someone who wants to have fun! A sense of humor is imperative. Always great when a girl is close w/ her family. Casual drinker but not someone who goes out partying 4-5 days a week. Doesn't have to love sports but would be nice if they exercise and understand the importance of good health (i.e. not a chain smoker). I'm not the best cook so I hope they enjoy going out to eat! Goal oriented and highly motivated would also be great! Well...I guess that's all for now! Thanks for getting this far down! Hope to hear back from you!
