Hi! I call myself a goofball masquerading as a serious person! In public I’m serious, smart, and slightly sarcastic. My humor is very dry and dark but my true friends know that under all that is my inner goofball! I will randomly bust out dancing to the music in my head, I love to crank the music in the car and dance if a favorite song comes on (and I stay awake on road trips by having a dance party in the car)! That "pick one word to describe your personality" was difficult! I was torn between animal lover, chef, crafty and professional in addition the intellectual choice I went with...I'm not really a person who fits in a box well!
I'm content to hang out at home and catch up on movies or the DVR, or to hit the town! I LOVE to dance (started dancing at age 2). For the most part I tend to avoid the club scene as I feel like I've outgrown it BUT, on occasion, it's fun to head to a crowded dance club and just be silly. Ultimately the goal is to go out and have a good time. I have a really stressful job but I love it and I've learned an important lesson, make the most of every moment, focus on the good and keep moving forward. Savoring the small things is a skill I'm glad I've learned!
I love to hang out with my dog (almost 16 and she still thinks she's a puppy), cook (I'm starting to create more of my own recipes as opposed to following pre-written ones), laugh with friends, and just do things that make me happy...be it taking time to clean the house, randomly paint a new picture, go take some fun pictures, hit the lake for canoeing or just relax at home doing nothing!
Here's what I'm looking for in a relationship: Something casual that may develop into more. Someone honest, funny, and respectful. A man who appreciates me and the things I do. A great sense of humor but knows how to be serious. Good conversation but comfortable silences. Yes, I know, I ask a lot but I consider myself to be pretty awesome and totally worth it!
First dates can be nerve wracking and I’m a bit non-traditional. No fancy restaurants, something low key with great atmosphere and phenomenal food. I’m a big fan of locally owned “hole in the wall” restaurants; I tend to avoid chain restaurants. First dates must include great conversation and plenty of laughing! Dinner is not a necessity…a first date could be something fun like miniature golf, canoeing on a lake, playing pool, grabbing a drink or just meeting for coffee and seeing where the date leads. Of course, there are also things like going to the aquarium or local museum for a great exhibit!
