Hmmm...I'm an independent girl who loves to travel, enjoys coming home, having hearty conversations, visiting my friends around the world, seeing new places, thinking new thoughts, and being challenged by different ideas. I heart coffee, tea, and chocolate and I'm excited for snow so I can cross-country ski again, but I'll be just as excited for Spring because it means the opening for biking, hiking, and camping season. I love being close to family and friends, yet have lived all over the globe. I try to pretend I'm all tough, but my compassionate little heart sometimes breaks down when no one is looking. I am serious and goofy. I'm open and guarded. Basically, I'd like to think I'm a contradiction, wrapped in an egnima, shrouded in a mystery, but really I'm just a fifth generation Minnesotan whose lived elsewhere and is contemplating that coming back for a bit might not be such a bad thing.
As for what I'm looking for in a guy? Well, when it's right, it's right and when it's not, it's not. I don't have a checklist or mandatory requirements. To use a cheesy phrase, I'm looking for a kindred spirit. We don't have to be exactly alike or interested in all the same things, we just need to understand each other. I do know that I'm not interested in guys that take themselves too seriously or think they're the bee's knees. I'm looking for a guy who can, from time to time, laugh at himself and life, and who I can get and who gets me. Well enough, anyway.
