It is difficult to not make a caricature of myself when typing essentially becomes a 500 word essay about me. But here are a few things about myself so anyone reading this won't think that I am just lazy!
I have a lot of interest but as of late I have been too busy to enjoy many of them due to a heavy schedule.
Activities that are important to me are spending time with my family and friends, exercising, running, biking, hiking, cooking, writing, going to small venue concerts, traveling and my work.
I think I am a kind person with a positive attitude about life.
I love great conversation and believe that I am very easy to talk to. I enjoy telling stories and making people laugh. I am a big foodie and any amount of time with me will most likely involve copious amounts of food. Some people say that I am always on the go but I really do like quiet non eventful evenings once in awhile to balance myself and rest.
I am here one POF because I hate meeting girls at bars (although I enjoy going to them with friends) and I am trying to broaden my horizons outside of people I know from work.
What I'm doing with myself:
I moved here a couple years ago after selling off my portion of a company in Flint, mi. I gave all that up to move to Chicago to make more money and basically enjoy Chicago for a few years. Ii was also in the film/ entertainment industry but Im going to taking a break from that right now.
Who I want to meet:
I want to meet people from all walks of life and interest. I like bright fun people. Intelligence is really attractive to me. I also think someone who knows how to tap into their goofy side is sexy.
Mean, tacky people are a huge turn off. If you are fun, inspiring, creative and intelligent I'm going to enjoy you. Please don't suffer from "pretty girl syndrome".
I have one criteria though. I hate doing the whole email/ text thing for weeks on end. Life is too short and there are to many fun things to go do together. So if you arn't ready to to head out and find adventure with me after several messages then Im going to move on quickly. Just fair warning.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I love doing random and fun things ( who doesn't) but for a first date I like to keep things low key such as going to dinner, explore a new restaurant or just meeting at a interesting place somewhere for drinks. Sorry, I'm an adult and I don't do coffee on dates. ;)
There definitely needs to be much talking and laughing involved! I really like to understand the person whom I am with and get to know them. So as long as I can hear them I guess I will go anywhere. On the second date after I know the person better then I would plan a more adventurous date catered to their interest.
