I am most grateful for my loving family, loyal friends, and good health. I am looking for someone who appreciates all the good things in their own life and is willing to share them with someone new.
I don't like to take things too seriously. I find that's an easy way to get stressed out, which is not fun. I appreciate a good sense of humor and humility in people. Sarcasm is my first language.
People have told me that I come across as patient and unassuming upon first impression. My motto is that you never know what someone is going through or has been through in their life, so you should treat everyone as you would like to be treated. I think everyone has a story to tell--you just have to be willing to listen.
When I have some time away from school, I like to go camping, hiking, or travel to visit friends. I've run a few half marathons and 10 milers. I've retired to 5Ks more recently, since I'm usually more pumped about the food post-race than the race itself. I like going to live sporting events. Hockey is my favorite--love the Sabres--but I'll watch anything competitive.
During the week, I usually relax by watching something on hulu before bed, walking my dog, or making dinner with friends. I occasionally go out on weekend nights, usually in fells. I'm happiest either staying in or grabbing a beer at a local dive.
Ideally, I am looking for a committed relationship to result from here, but I am in no rush. I think it is important to take time to get to know one another and see if we're compatible. I would like to meet someone who is genuine, down-to-earth, and can find joy in simple things.
