People notice that I laugh and smile very easily. I'm kind of quiet sometimes (especially in large groups), but I'm not shy. I just like to people watch and take in the scene around me. I have a pretty dry sense of humor and like that in others. I'm looking for something long term, but I'm not looking for an insta-relationship. I prefer to take time to get to know someone. I'm not the type that falls in love quickly or gets attached to someone easily, but once that connection is made, I'm loyal for life. There are a lot of things that I'd love to do at some point (rock climb, go to Guatemala, try a new hole-in-the-wall restaurant) and having an awesome person to come along would be more fun. I'm pretty independent and enjoy time to myself, so the right guy for me won't mind me doing my own thing.
I think people are generally good at heart. I'm a total sucker for animals, which is how I ended up with one of my dogs (I have two). I like nerdiness and intelligence. I like politics and intellectual discussions (discussions, not arguments). There is always a book in my purse and I'm probably the only person who still regularly goes to the library. I read everything from literature, to physics, politics, cheesy girly books, and health books. But I LOVE bad movies. I love eating healthy and working out. But I definitely love a Friday night when I just read magazines and eat way too much Cap'n Crunch.
My favorite things in life (in no particular order): flip flops, laughing until I cry, cereal, the stars, the Constitution, real Mexican food, hot chocolate, math and physics
