The one thing I am passionate about...
Volunteering! I love feeling like I'm making a difference. When I lived in WV and PA, I worked with their canine search and rescue team. It was an amazing experience (for both my dog, Max, and for me!) I've been so blessed in my life and I'm always trying to find something new to be involved in so I can give back.
I typically spend my leisure time
I have lived in several different states, having spent the majority of my life in Southern California. I would love to spend some time with someone who loves to travel, loves dogs and enjoys trying new things. I am truly happiest when I'm at, in or near the ocean. I received my advanced scuba diving certification last summer and it has quickly become a new passion! And I love live music! I have traveled all over the US to see some of my favorites perform. And I love watching sports. I pretty much wake up and go to sleep to SportsCenter. (I know, I know, "But I'm a girl!") Lol
The most influential person in my life has been
I'm looking for a guy who loves God passionately! (In addition to that, if I could find someone with humor and intelligence... That would be amazing!)
The first thing people notice about me
My ability to communicate. I am usually the person people feel like they can open up to. I guess thats part of the reason I loved being a church life group leader. And I very often try to use humor to defuse tense situations.
The last book I read and enjoyed
"A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius" by Dave Eggers. It is an autobiography (with fictional stories woven throughout) about the death of the author's parents at the age of 20 and his life subsequently spent raising his younger brother. It was poignant, moving, witty, intelligent, heartbreaking, and profound. I loved it. (and I LOVE all the Harry Potter books because I'm kind of a dork!)
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My Savior, Jesus Christ
- My close relationship with my family and friends (and my dog, Max!)
- That I have been blessed with the opportunity to travel and experience new cultures.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Because I tend to participate actively in the conversation, people often don't realize (until they get to know me) that I am actually a good listener as well.
Friends Describe me as
Funny, Generous, Intelligent, Outgoing
A little more about me
This is the first time I've ever done anything like this. To be honest online dating always seemed a bit ridiculous. But then I just decided that it couldn't hurt to try a new approach.
