As a kid, I was kicked out of the girl scouts. I tell you this now so that you'll have a basic understanding of what you're getting yourself into. Don't say you weren't warned.
I'm originally from NYC and find that I still gravitate toward East Coast people, although I'm completely in love with the Bay Area and have definitely made this my home.
I enjoy the outdoors and being active. I fell in love with running a few years ago and am always on the lookout for new exciting events (next up: Big Sur Marathon). I am honest, can be 'East Coast blunt', and won't hesitate to mix in a "that's what she said" no matter the setting (please apologize to your mom in advance for my behavior). I'm also passionate, affectionate, easy to talk to, enthusiastic, and unable to fix or put things together without injuring myself in some ridiculous way.
I'm most attracted to men who can make me laugh, think and swoon (I know what you're thinking: "comedy club, book club, strip club- she's mine!"). I'm interested in men who are intelligent, witty, skilled at banter, old-fashioned (opening car doors, offering to pay for my coffee, giving me his coat even after I've insisted it's too warm for me to bring mine), outdoorsy, thoughtful, kind, and (for whatever reason) wearing a hat.
Ultimately, I'm looking for someone to share my life with- someone to text when I'm on the verge of strangling a coworker, to travel and explore with, to get up early with on an action packed Saturday, and sleep in late with on a lazy Sunday.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Let's go for a run or a hike- something fun, active and low key.
...Or let's eat. I always want to eat.
