Thanks for stopping by!
Life rarely ever goes the way you expect it. The past decade has seen me living in every corner of our country, and many places in between, but I finally feel like I've found home. I've had a lot of great adventures that have helped define who I am. Everything from Vegas bachelor party misadventures, to wandering behind the scenes at Disney World, to getting my face plastered across board game stores around the world. It hasn't always been good, and I haven't always had a clear direction, but it's rarely been boring.
I've been humbled by the amount of opportunities I've received, but I'm proud enough to know that I've earned all of it. I've found wonderful friends who've pulled me kicking and screaming through the rough patches, and celebrated the good times. I embrace geek culture, as it's always been good to me, but I'm not limited by it. I've learned to take life with a chuckle and a laid back attitude. I'm happy with where I've gotten, but I refuse to be content. Things are good, but they're getting better.
What I'm looking for is a partner in life's adventures. Someone who knows herself and what she is looking for. Someone who can enjoy a night in cuddled up with a good movie, or a nice long walk for no reason other than that the sun decided to grace us with its presence. Bonus points for a big smile, and the ability to speak geek.
Best of luck in your searches, and I hope to hear from you soon!
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
A first meeting is just that. The internet is a scary place, and you really need a chance to ensure mutually compatible craziness without too much in the way of expectations. Just something low-key, with a lot of talking and an easy out should the need arise. It could grow into a date, or just dissipate.
Once it's time to do the real first date, it should be about doing something that celebrates common interests. Something a little more active helps smooth over drops in the conversation and build a shared experience.
