Me: I'm a nice person who values time with friends and family above all else. I work hard and play hard and am always ready for a new adventure. Humor is a must with me - I love to joke around and laugh. Sarcasm is my homeboy.
I love cooking, movies, the outdoors, travel and the anticipation of what great things will be just around the corner.
I'm very athletic and usually fairly competitive, so I like to think I am good at most things. My mom says I am - wait...are you calling my mom a liar?!?!
I'm looking for someone who basically just wants to go out and live life to the fullest, will lead me to try new things, and challenge me in a wide variety of ways. Now more than ever I feel like I know what I want in, and I've gone through a lot to get that knowledge. I believe that it will all be worth it once I find the right person, and I absolutely refuse to settle.
You: Aren't self absorbed. You not only know how to give back in a relationship, you don't even have to think about it because it comes naturally.
You feel just as comfortable in jeans or yoga pants as you do getting dressed up. (Sidenote - yoga pants kill me. I am a total sucker for a woman in yoga pants.)
You're versatile. You're confident. You know you look great whether you have makeup on or not. Family and friends are important to you and you want to find someone to share all them with.
You're honest to a fault, and realize that and openness are key to successful relationships. You know happiness is not ready made, but that its a choice and a by product of your own actions. You are ready to find that happiness and share it with someone else.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Something casual that allows us to talk. There could be an activity involved, or just a drink. Low key is the best approach to a first date in my opinion.
