Hi there! Born and raised in North Carolina, sorry to disappoint but my Southern accent is sorely lacking, it only makes an appearance when I'm very tired! I had a job I loved but was emotionally taxing; I worked with ALS patients and spent a lot of time getting to know their families and their stories. After 8 years, and some big losses, I decided to take a step back, change positions and follow one of my dreams....moving to Seattle. It was an epic road trip cross country though next time I would plan a longer drive with more time to enjoy the scenery. My dog and I (she's almost 18) are learning our way around the area! I'm excited to be here and can't wait to see everything this beautiful city and the PNW has to offer, suggestions are always welcome.
Life is crazy and can be stressful. I want to have fun, do something silly, get in the car and just drive randomly to some place beautiful (or fun). I want to laugh and make memories! I'm the girl that will go dance in the rain because "it's just water", that loves action flicks because I'm a special effects nerd, that will do the small things for the people I care about, leaves random notes around, has a closet full of high heels and yet still pulls out the Chucks because they're awesome!
There's not an option for "open to a relationship or a great friendship" and let's be real, a really great relationship happens over time, built on a solid foundation of friendship, respect and chemistry. Here's what I'm looking for in a relationship partner: 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.
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. It does not have to be dinner, could be a drink or coffee (I already miss my favorite coffee spot at home so please introduce me to your favorites). First dates must include great conversation and plenty of laughing!
