I have the best of friends and family and would like someone to share my joys.
I am looking for someone who shares my passion for sports (especially winter) and nutrition, the outdoors (and all its splendors), family and animals. Relaxing is great too but I'd rather be doing something other than sitting. I would love to be with someone who challenges myself and vice versa. I am looking for a classy but down-to-earth man who is fun-loving, kind to others, self-motivated, likes to cook with that special someone, someone who is respectful and responsible, and knows how to act in various settings and cultures. I would like to be with a man that loves to travel and explore new things. I feel that you grow old if you stop learning. The heart is truly the sexiest part of a man. Actions do speak louder than words. I am not clingy but am full of love and attentiveness for just that special person. I love to find creative ways to express my love. I would like to be with a man that can handle a confident and independent woman and is not jealous or arrogant. Those are both attributes that are very unattractive to me. Trust and respect for others is also very important. I have a huge heart and am looking for a man that can give the same.
My friends would say that I am very loyal, loving, and am there for them no matter how good or tough life becomes and am the person they ask for advice. I am not judgemental and believe that in all settings in life that everyone deserves the same dignity and respect unless their character shows a lack of better judgement in either their actions and/ or words. I am very compassionate and empathetic of others. On a less serious note, I also love to have fun and I love to play simple pranks on my coworkers (I can take them too!) : ) that are only in good fun and taste all for the sake of a good belly laugh and/ or smile for all. I have also been known to go snowboarding all day and come home in the evening just in time to get dressed-up and listen to live music downtown. I love to be in the mountains or by the sea. There are also many things that I love about the city such as good healthy food and live music. Great combo! The Northwest is spoiled with so many ethnicities and the various food and cultures that make this region so great! A few more things... I hope to get back into hiking this coming summer. I love orchids and most exotic but simple items from those beautiful parts of the world. There are many countries on the list that I'd still like to visit, such as Greece, Spain, Tibet, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Fiji and Goa in India, just to name a few.
I am half Swiss and half German and hope to visit family there in the near future.
This is my first time trying online dating and can't wait to see who I may meet whether it be a new friend or that special one!
Love life, engage in it, give it all you got. Love it with a passion, because life truly does give back, many times over, what you put into it.
