You've heard it all before. I'm new to online dating and I don't usually do this. (It's actually true). I am a happy, excited, and slightly sarcastic girl who is looking for a little companionship in her life. Originally from the east coast, I have a little bit of fire left in me that will never go away. It took me a while to figure out what I wanted to do with my life, so I have lived a lot places on my quest, but I keep coming back to my city by the bay. I love to travel and take weekend trips. Nothing wakes me up inside like watching the sunset over an unfamiliar horizon. I'm also pretty happy if there is glass of wine or a nice cold beer in my hand while watching that sunset :-)
I work in sales and management, and I absolutely love my job. It's challenging, and sometimes I work long hours, but I believe that we should all love what we do. Life is too short to spend it doing things that make us unhappy. I have a degree that has absolutely nothing to do with my current profession, but I have a feeling I'm not alone in that.
I have a very large (and loud) Italian family who I absolutely love. My friends are the center of my heart, and over the years, have become my family in every way. I also have two little nieces who I absolutely adore - who basically have me wrapped around their little fingers. I'm ok with it:-)
I love being outside - day or night and my favorite things involve hiking in the woods or going to the beach. I love the summer, and I hate being cold. (I know, breaking news! - A woman who doesn't like being cold) My infatuation with the stars and the sky is undeniable, and have a little bit of science nerd ingrained in me.
I'm pretty easy going and am down to roll with whatever situation comes up. I love to laugh, and it doesn't take a lot to make me burst out uncontrollably. I don't require too much attention, and I'm definitely not high maintenance. I like to get dressed up when the occasion presents itself, but if given the choice I would probably live in my jeans and flip flops. I have an aunt who describes me as being "The classiest girl at the dive bar". I haven't decided if it's a compliment or not, but I just take it for what it's worth. I love spontaneous ideas and last minute plans. If you can make me laugh and you don't mind an occasional inappropriate comment we will probably get along just fine.
I like people with fire and passion - in whatever they do. He should be able to talk smack, and crack a joke and not take himself too seriously. I don't necessarily want someone who is exactly like me either - I spend all day with me. I love people who can introduce me to new things and ideas.
My life is happy and full. I'm not looking for someone to complete me - I am whole. What I'm looking for is a companion to share my life and my time with. I want a partner to to go on adventures with, and to hang out with and to share my heart with. I'm not looking to be married anytime in the near future, and I'm unsure if I'll ever want children. These aren't the kind of decisions I would make early on in a relationship. I want what anyone wants - someone to make me laugh.
