SEEKING: Someone who is comfortable with openness, honesty and who has a strong moral compass. . I realise that being honest sometimes means hurting someone's feelings (unintentionally) but I believe that being forthright is the best approach in the long run.
• Courage to be honest & forthright over diplomacy or political correctness
- Smarts with some quirkiness
- Direct communication style over a passive-agressive style
-Awesome wittiness (bonus points if you keep making me smile!)
-Animal lover (because I am one and I believe in being kind to animals)
-Loyalty (I'm fiercely loyal to my friends and have friendships that have lasted many years)
- Desire to be in a monogamous relationship
Here are some random tidbits about me:
SELF: I'm comfortable in my skin and can have fun, solo or with friends. I made a promise to myself years ago that I would not let the absence of someone special prevent me from doing things I enjoy. I have lived that promise, even though I know experiences are more memorable when there's someone special to share them with.
My friends say I'm unpretentious, down to earth and caring with a lbit of a sarcatic sense of humor.
EXPERIE!CES: I am sometimes "touched" by conversations or interactions I have with other people whose paths may not ever cross mine again, yet the encounter is memorable. If you are the same way, you will understand what I mean.
The time I spend with people, I spend "being in the moment." Life passes you by if you don't know how to live in the moment, enjoying the people you are with, in your immediate surroundings.
All-time Favorite Reads: Atlas Shrugged, The Fountainhead, Neither Here Nor There, Lonesome Survivor, Comfort Me With Apples, Rubies & Sapphires, Angels & Demons, anything Michael Crichton.
Favorite Movies: The Way, The Hangover series, Life is Beautiful, Blackhawk Down, Roman Holiday, anything Audrey Hepburn, The Sweetest Thing, chick flicks.
VALUES: My friends and family are important to me and I'm fiercely loyal to those in my "inner circle." I'm looking for the same in someone else.
As I've grown, I've realized that giving someone your time is a valuable gift. It's also something I've taken for granted in the past, but I can fully appreciate now..
INTERESTS: The outdoors is my motivation for running. Put me near the beach or on a trail and I'm set! That being said, I also enjoy art museums, musicals and plays. Live music is something I greatly enjoy.
Staying physically fit and generally eating healthy are important to me. I'm also a foodie and I enjoy cooking and perusing cookbooks looking for recipes to try out.
