I'm an easy-going girl with a good sense of humor. In fact, sense of humor and wit is probably the most important to me when it comes to relationships I have with people, including family and friends. I love social activities, listening to good music, discovering new restaurants...anything that can strike up a good conversation. I would like to meet someone who is intelligent, articulate and can carry on a conversation, but is also a goof ball and can laugh at themselves and not take life so seriously.
I'm in the visual merchandising industry: simply put, I'm the person who makes the retail environment looking pretty. I style the mannequins, I install displays and windows, I ensure that the store essentially looks its best. I'm passionate about what I do and I am lucky to say that I love my job. :)
I must warn you, I can be a bit of a smart ass. I'm sarcastic, and will probably laugh at most anything (people say they find themselves funny when they're around me since I laugh at anything). I can be serious when necessary, I will be a goofball when necessary. It all just depends on the environment and the people I'm around. I love carrying on a deep conversation just as much as I do shallow ones. I'm all about having fun and making the most out of everything and dislike buzzkills. What's the point in going out with people (dating, friends, etc) if you're going to dump on everything and be miserable about it? People have told me that I'm almost always in a good and happy mood. Life's too short to not!
I want to meet someone who will challenge me mentally and physically, and who can manage to keep up with ambitions. I want someone to show me their world and what about that world made them become the person they are and be just as excited to understand me the same way. Someone to chill with yet be adventurous with. Someone who puts others needs before their own but also knows when to stand up for themselves. Someone who is open-minded and is understanding--or at the very least willing to listen-- to what others have to say. Someone who is thoughtful, out-going, personable, smart, and above all: can make me laugh.
I'm realizing more and more that everyone has their baggage. Hey, I have baggage too, we all do, but how people handle that baggage and how much they allow themselves to be very negatively affected by their pasts can be a deal breaker (on either end). We're all adults here, let us handle our relationships as such.
I like to keep the first date relatively simple, whether it be meet up for coffee or a drink. There's honestly no use in planning some extravagant first date if upon meeting, you realize you'd rather be somewhere else. The interaction between us on a quick meetup will inevitably determine whether an extension of the date or the second date will occur. So we'll see!
