I’m a transplant originally from Pittsburgh. My job moved me to Boston, and it has turned out to be an amazing place to live. I’m lucky to have a great group of friends in the area and I love my job… so I’ve spent a lot of time this past year doing my own thing. The only thing that's been missing is someone to share it with. So... I guess I'm trying to meet someone who I wouldn’t be lucky enough to meet in my day to day.
I'm outgoing and a people person. I tend to be thoughtful and organized, but at the same time I don’t like to say no to anything. This has put me in some odd situations, but it’s also created most of my favorite life experiences… like that time I worked on a commercial fishing boat in Alaska (even though I didn’t like fishing)… or the time I sold my car with the intention of buying a motorcycle (that I didn’t know how to ride)…
I like a person who is fun, witty, and a bit of a smart ass. I like playful banter, and I tend to like women who are smarter than me. Also, I do crossfit regularly so I'm a big fan of athleticism.
I was raised by my Grandparents to believe a few things (and I still have these quotes by my alarm clock):
1. My Grandpa always said - “A great man shows his greatness by the way he treats little men.” - Not that I think I’m great, but I tend to treat strangers the same way I'd like to be treated. It doesn't matter where they came from.
2. He also said – “My life and success has been a product of the much cleverer people with whom I’ve been fortunate to surround myself.” - I think I have my talents, but I know my weaknesses. I like to learn from anyone who is willing to talk.
3. “You’ll walk on the outside, you’ll hold the door, and you’ll thank me for it later!” This is what my Grandmother told me before my first date… so far it hasn’t failed me so I’ll stick with it :)
Ultimately… If you are fun, down to earth, can laugh at yourself, and you aren’t afraid to make a fool of yourself in public than we’ll probably get along, and in that case I hope we meet. Submitted from mobile
