I am an enthusiastic, energetic woman, very youthful at heart. I am looking for a relationship of friendship first, with the hope that I may find a special man to share the rest of my life with. Although I am drawn to people and am very friendly/outgoing, I am more an introvert than extrovert and would rather have quality time, just the two of us or in a small group, than go to a loud party. I love to laugh and also enjoy a good balance of meaningful conversation and intimate sharing. I enjoy hiking, running, walking in nature, visiting new places, reading, taking pictures, going to movies/theater, browsing in museums and art galleries, and watching/going to SF Giants/49er games. I am adventurous and like trying new things. I also enjoy listening to all kinds of music (except rap and heavy metal). I think cooking together is fun and teaches you a lot about yourself and the other person. I am at home in the mountains or at the beach and love them both. I have been content being on my own, but my greatest desire is to share my life with someone who is my best friend and shares the same values, priorities and passions. I am a Christian and my relationship with Jesus is a priority to me. I am open to friendship with people of all faiths but, in a committed relationship, I am looking for a man who loves Jesus.
For a first date, if it is sunny, it would be fun to meet some place fun like North Beach (SF) for a cup of coffee/tea (or maybe some ice cream at Baskin Robbins, or gelato :) - somewhere where we could talk and get to know each other a little. Then maybe walk around the neighborhood to see what's going on at Washington Square. Or we could walk to Coit Tower and check out the fabulous vistas - a great opportunity to share the charm of SF, some fresh air and exercise. If it's cold outside, we could meet somewhere homey and fun, like the Mountain House in Woodside, where there would surely be a nice fire blazing in the bar. In that case, hot chocolate for me!
