So, the new year is starting of well! I hope yours is as well. I am excited that spring is finally here as I just reconnected with some friends and I even started running recently. Am very happy with the way the new year has started, and I hope you are too. :)
I am hoping to find someone special this year (as are you or you would not be here). :) 2015 was a great year as it allowed me to get my life back on track and to find something resembling happiness again. So, this is going to be an even better year and who knows maybe I will find someone amazing along the way. Could that be you?
I am also trying to find friends to hang out with, so, if you are looking for that too...
I have lived in Pittsburgh a few years and am excited to be working for a bank. Wait. Did I just say that? Banks are evil right? Well, yes, but I do enjoy my job for the most part.
Also, I don't know if I want children. I am 45 and kind of set in my ways, and want to spend my life with someone amazing and not sure if kids fit in that. Could that change? Maybe. But at this point in my life, I kind of doubt it.
I feel like I am two different people. On one hand, I love the arts and everything they offer. Although I have not been to the theater since I have lived here, it was something I loved to do when I lived in New York. I also love to try to get to live music and museums. A day at the museum can be an amazing thing. I also love hiking and getting outside to do thing. I do miss not playing basketball and tennis like I used to, but I think I am about to start running again. Pittsburgh has grown on me a lot lately. Moving from NYC was a big shift for me as the two cities are so different. But, as I said, I am enjoying the city (minus all the Steelers stuff that is everywhere…sorry girls). Don't hate me. :) Crazily, I have found the best burger I have ever had, and one of the best cupcakes here. I never would have thought that, but it is true.
The other side of me is that I am a HUGE geek. This ranges from movies, to video games. From board games and card games. This doesn’t mean I don’t like other things, but these are things that are important. If you know what most of those things are, we may want to talk. A few more thoughts on this. Reading is a huge part of who I am. It is my biggest passion and I am never without at least one book on me. It is just something that never happens. Also, I am huge movie goer and Star Wars is my favorite thing of all time. But love how many great movies are coming out this year and cannot wait to see them all.
I am also a sports nut. Sadly, I am not a Steeler fan as my Cowboys own that part of my heart. I have become a Pirate fan, although not as much as the Yankees. Two Chicago teams, the Blackhawks and the Bulls round out my sports love. Also, Oklahoma Sooners, since I was born there.
Do you have to share my passions? No, but please have an open mind about the things I love. You have your own passions, and maybe we can introduce each other to new and amazing things! :)
Also, NO SMOKERS. No thank you. Maybe if you are quitting, but still…maybe. Not sure about kids, only cuz I am at a point in my life where I want to enjoy someone and just not sure. Also, it would be awesome (but not mandatory) for you to be as excited about the new star wars movie as I am. :) So, if this sounds appealing to you, please send me a message with a bit about you. If nothing else making new friends is always cool.
Hard to say. I am into so many different things, that it could go a lot of ways. But if I find someone that is into the same stuff as me? It would probably be us meeting for a drink/hot chocolate and then see what happens from there. After we did that for a bit, maybe a movie and then some dessert.
