ABOUT HER & WHO SHE'S LOOKING FOR

I am a teacher (work with a bunch of chicks ;) ) and have been in the same friend circle(s) for awhile, thought Match might be a good avenue to meet some new people. It has been an interesting experience thus far- def all walks of life! I'm not on here to pass the time, so if there is mutual interest I would prefer to grab a drink or something as opposed to "chatting" on the internet. :)

I have lived in and loved Chicago since I finished my undergrad, the past 7 years. I truly believe happiness in life is more about the "who" than the "what".I think my friends would say that I am thoughtful, spontaneous, trustworthy/loyal, and pretty much happy doing anything when I am with great company. I tend to speak my mind and don't take myself too seriously. I am abnormally honest (maybe to a fault). I feel that trust is the most important thing in any type of relationship. I like to joke around/tend to surround myself with people who can take and dish some sarcastic witty banter. I am a nurturing person; I am happiest when the people I care about most are happy.

In my ideal world, I would be a professional traveler; but can't seem to find someone to pay me to do that... ;) Would be awesome to find someone who feels the same way about travel. Thinking about volunteering in Peru for a couple weeks this summer. Or maybe just go to the airport and choose a random departure. ;)

(If this wasn't long enough already)....I enjoy the random small details about people so here are a few of mine:
-love thunderstorms/lightning
-Feel coziest cooking something in the crock pot on Sunday so the whole house smells yummy
-Love craft beer; especially Piece's IPA
-My dad lives on a lake and boating all day just "feels" like summer
-favorite walks are the ones with no destination in mind
-Live music makes me happy...live music outside makes me the happier

In a guy:
I'm not really a "list" kind of girl... I think chemistry has a big play in things...but some things I've found that I gravitate towards:
Passionate about life and is up for adventures.- not satisfied with the daily grind as the end all and be all of life. Doesn't take himself too seriously and can make me laugh. Honest and loyal. There for the good, bad, and the ugly for those he cares most about. Just an overall genuine person.-And being able to build something out of a pile of wood and nails never hurt... ;)
Probably not a good fit if.....you hate dogs, get bottle service at "the club" every weekend, play games (the relationship kind- I enjoy a good game of Taboo or Euchre as much as the next girl)....

Camping, Coffee and conversation, Cooking, Dining out, Gardening/Landscaping, Movies/Videos, Museums and art, Music and concerts, Exploring new areas, Playing cards, Religion/Spiritual, Shopping/Antiques, Travel/Sightseeing, Volunteering, Watching sports, Wine tasting
