I've been in the Philly area for over a year now and finally feel like I'm settling in. I'm an active person and I like exploring new places running, cycling, hiking. My dream vacation is to go tour Europe on a bike, bike the Pacific Coast Highway in California, run the trails in Colorado, or climb Machu Picchu. That said, I'm equally content to lay on the beach, hit a few wineries, and eat great food along the way.
I love my job - it's more than a job to me, but I do work crazy hours sometimes so I try to take advantage of my free time as much as possible. I'm looking for someone to share my free time with, someone who also works hard, and someone who can understand if I need to work on a weekend. I know what I want and want someone who knows what they want too. I want someone who challenges me - who can push me to think outside the box, try new things - and is equally open. I try not to take life - or myself - too seriously so I have no problem laughing at myself. My sense of humor tends to be sarcastic - and I love bantering back and forth and want someone I can laugh with.
Animal lovers welcome - I have cats and yes, I love them like my children. I like to go out to eat and see concerts (especially anything that's standing room only and you can get close enough to reach out and touch the stage). I just bought a house, so I also really enjoy spending time at home now - not to mention whatever project I've recently discovered on Pinterest. My guilty pleasures - watching multiple episodes of a TV show in one night - Game of Thrones, Shameless, Homeland.
I've reached a point in my life where I feel like I know what I want and what I like and I'd like to meet someone who's comfortable with herself, enjoys a good conversation, works hard, plays hard, and just enjoys a good laugh.
