Status Update: I'm taking a hiatus from Match. Unfortunately, last time I did this my profile continued to show as active so I felt I should write a note to let you know that I won't receive any emails sent my way. Good luck to you all, I hope yo find someone special.
I consider myself an optimistic, laid back and fun person. I love music, especially live music, love to cook, and like being out in nature and hiking. I can’t say I have just a few hobbies or activities I do the most, I love trying all kinds of different things. I love taking weekend trips, whether just up or down the coast or jumping on a plane last minute to somewhere fun. I am a good communicator, and I’m thoughtful, friendly and kind. I strive to live life to the fullest, I like new experiences and I'm always up for trying trying new things. I work hard but don’t live to work, I’ve found great balance in my life the last few years. Most important, I’m happy with my life and want my partner to be as well.
I find myself attracted to a diverse number of people, I don't have a defined list of things I'm looking for in a person or have a set type. It's a given that chemistry needs to exist but you know right away if it’s there or not. I am looking for someone who is smart and has a great sense of humor, we need to be able to laugh together after all. I enjoy good conversation and someone who challenges me. I love a man with confidence (not arrogance, there is a big difference) about him. It's important that you are as comfortable with us staying in as you are with us going out. If you like live music, cool museum exhibits and going to the theatre occasionally you get bonus points.
A bit more about me. I’m strangely good at useless trivia. I’m even better at laughing. I find it easy to talk to strangers and I’m a good listener. I’m a mean problem solver and am calm under pressure. I have a terrible sense of direction so I’m also excellent at getting lost.
I’m a total foodie and love to cook as well as going out to eat. In the last month I went to The French Laundry and Fleur de Lys but also ate off of a questionable taco truck and grabbed a burger and fries at In N Out.
For music, I’m an equal opportunity listener, I love it all. And I'll see anything live. In my iTunes: Jack Johnson, Beastie Boys, Mumford Sons, Sade, Jay Z, Michael Buble, Muse, U2, One Republic, Adele, Paul Oakenfold, Bruce Springsteen, Crystal Method, Eddie Vedder, Green Day, Johnny Cash, Vanilla Ice (checking to see if you are still paying attention), Snow Patrol, Rihanna. All over the board.
I love reading, always have. Fiction is what I go for most and I love a good mystery/suspense story. I’ve read almost all of James Patterson, Patricia Cornwell and Michael Crichton. Even most of Tom Clancy believe it or not. I’ve been into reading biographies lately, loved Andre Agassi’s. Also really enjoy Malcolm Gladwell and I’m currently reading The Girl Who Played with Fire. I really loved The Story of Edgar Sawtelle and Into Thin Air.
