Where to begin? I am equal parts goofy and serious. I constantly change the radio station in the car and will sing loudly along with cheesy 80's songs. I am quirky and funny and passionate and outspoken. I have a slightly skewed sense of humor and I love shoes and scary movies.
I enjoy taking road trips and I am a huge fan of going to the beach in the winter. Don't get me wrong, the beach on sunny day is great, but there is just something elemental about standing on the sand on a cold windy day watching a storm come in. I love going to Pike Place Market on a Sunday and just spending the whole day walking about exploring the booths and shops. Seattle has a wealth of amazing things to explore and do and even having lived here my whole life, I still get tremendous enjoyment out of exploring the area.
My family and friends are important to me. There is virtually nothing I wouldn't do for the people I care about. I grew up in a very "suburban" neighborhood complete with drama worthy of "Desperate Housewives" but there is one thing that I will always love about it - the closeness and sense of family that is here. I know everyone on the block and they know me. I hope that if I am lucky enough to have a family of my own that my children can be raised with the same sense of closeness and family.
I am at the point in my life where I am looking for something more serious. I have spent much time serial dating and while that is fun, I am ready and looking for more. I have been single for a while now and I have used this time to think about what it is that I want out of a relationship. I want honesty, trust, fun, mutual attraction and mutual affection. There is something to be said for having someone to chat with at the end of the day or curl up and watch a movie with on a lazy Saturday night.
I am looking for someone laid back and fun. I want a life full to bursting with passion and adventure. I am looking of someone with an adventurous spirit who will not only want to introduce me to new things, but will also like to try some adventures that are new to both of us.
The best things often come in unexpected places. I am open and look forward to all the things and people life has to offer.
And if you can answer this question, I would be forever grateful:
Why do we close our eyes when we kiss?
