Alright. Here goes... I'm going to have to start with my profession because it is a huge part of who I am. I work in public health and most people's first question is: what? I work with underserved populations who wouldn't otherwise get access to health care. I am getting my masters and working in the field and while it is not all I am about, it is a big part. I am passionate about my work and would love to find someone who knows a bit about it. When I am not being crazy busy, I love to ride my bike, walk along the beach and spend time with my amazing network of friends. I also spend tons of time reading for school and pleasure so when I'm not enjoying the outdoors or at work, I am tucked away at a coffee shop reading. If none of the above is happening, you would probably find me eating or cooking. I love to do both and have made it one of my missions in life to always be eating and cooking new things. If you want to know more about my taste in music, life goals, etc. you're going to have to ask because they all require pretty complicated answers.
What I want in a first date: something casual and fun. First dates should be about getting to know the other person and beeing able to see how they interact with their surroundings. Some ideas: taking a walk followed by a light meal or a coffee, going to the beach or a park with some food and things to do (frisbee, books, buckets and shovels) or maybe something a little retro and silly like bowling or miniature golfing. That is what is so great about dating. You get to do all of the silly, fun and new things that you want to with a great reason to do so: getting to know someone new.
