Moving to Carbondale, Il in August from 7 years in Southern California for school and a new adventure.
I enjoy traveling, going to the movies, spending time at the beach, camping, 4-wheel adventures, all types of music, good food, intellectual conversations, visiting with my best friends in the LA area, reading and trying new things.
For the past 6 years, I have worked as a Sports Massage Therapist at a local resort. I have also been taking classes full-time for the past 4 years. Due to my busy schedule of work and school, I spend the majority of free time studying and spending time with my friends who I call family. My goal is to finish my science prerequisites, transfer into a premed major and obtain at Physician Assistants degree.
Growing up in the South and moving to California has been a true culture shock experience but I have adjusted and feel blessed to live in such a beautiful area. I spent the majority of my life in Georgia and Tennessee. However, was born in Louisiana and moved here from New Orleans. All of my family except for two cousins reside in the South. I, normally, spend around 3 or 4 weeks a year back at home with my family and taking in the fresh southern air and adventures.
I signed up for this site a few years back, but completely forgot about it as I have been in a few relationships since then or heard many unfortunates about this site. Just recently, I decided to actually try it and see what happens. I am a very smart girl and do not have time for fake profiles, lies, and guys with the wrong idea. If that is you, I am sorry but I have too much going for me and in my precious time I would truly like to avoid such circumstances. I am also not sure what I am looking for in this website. Possibly, just to meet new people, dating, or maybe more if it is the right person.
In general, I look for someone who was raised well and has a strong foundation of family. Someone who has no baggage and has worked through any past event that lingers in their emotional state. I enjoy intellectual conversations therefore someone who has an education and strong ambitions in life. It is also highly important for a person to take time to build themselves up and not depend on another individual. However, in all things considering, it is highly important to just be who you are, let go, and have fun.
