I am an enthusiastic, energetic, exciting person looking for someone who will match me intellectually, personally, and everything in between!
I am originally from the East Coast. I grew up in Pennsylvania, but spent a large amount of time as a child in DC and the surrounding areas. While that will always be home I have lived all over in France, Mexico, Hawaii, Virginia, and now Washington. I love the Northwest and am enjoying really discovering the area even more so than from when I previously lived on the Puget Sound.
I love to travel and want to visit all 50 States by the time I am 30. I've driven through the country 3 times this year... Once alone: what an adventure! So I am almost there! Although a long overdue trip back to France is also on the list. I love going out and trying new things. The rain does not slow me down, but it is nice sometimes to have quiet days.
I love playing cards. I am a trivia whore. I watch Jeopardy like many watch sports: hurling insults at the contestants when they answer incorrectly and doing a victory move when I answer correctly, especially during Final Jeopardy. I have been told it is VERY entertaining... And a little violent.
I am very responsible and respectful. I am extremely serious about the important things. That being said, I laugh all the time and have a very ironic sense of humor, so I need some one who is quick!
I have a very romantic sense about life, but not in the stereotypical love sense. Rather, I adore the simplistic, mundane occurrences of "la vie quotidienne." Even the banal is beautiful. I create lives for strangers about who they are... Good and bad. It is a little silly and perhaps too dreamy, but it is a lovely perspective.
In addition to English I speak French and Spanish. Language and its manipulation through communication fascinates me. I hate most grammatical errors. I text with proper spelling and punctuation. I do not like contractions and edit them from most everything I write, but will use more often when speaking. I will not end a sentence in a preposition, even if I result in sounding ridiculous. And yet I over use the ellipsis... Constantly. Such a contradiction... I know.
I read cookbooks for entertainment and day dream about making fabulous meals. I am like a child on Christmas morning when in a restaurant: ripe with anticipation. I will glow with excitement while reading the menu. I will moan shamelessly into my plate over an amazing dish. But my favorite part of it all is sharing the experience with someone else.
I am caring, loving, giving, patient, and understanding. I am happy and cheerful most of the time. I want someone who will appreciate me for who I am. I want to connect with someone and enjoy their company, but not be afraid to be an individual with sometimes separate interests and activities. I want someone who is well educated and open-minded with compassion and sincerity. I want someone who will adore me for my (at times) ridiculousness and not be afraid to just laugh when necessary.
Above all I am always up for an adventure and a good time, so I need someone who can keep up and make it fun!
