The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about the people I love. I will fight for them, defend them, be there for them.... I think relationships are the most important thing. I am passionate about living in the moment and enjoying the small things because I know that most things are fleeting-- and I know that when you look back on your life, you'll most likely realize that those small things were actually the big things.
I typically spend my leisure time
I looooove summer--- outdoor concerts, street festivals, farmer's markets, evening walks, picnics, backyard BBQs, long days, a cold beer, poolside lounging, movies in the park....I also like paintballing, volleyball, aerobics.... hmmm, what else? I am learning to salsa dance, and I'm hoping to get my scuba certification soon. I'd also like to start paddle boarding this summer. And like I said before, I also really enjoy my downtime-- movies, game nights, cooking, etc.
The most influential person in my life has been
I have to choose ONE thing? Hmm? they must like to snuggle! JK, I guess I would say character because I think that encompasses a lot. Also, someone who makes me laugh. I can sometimes take life a little too seriously. Someone who has had some life experience and knows who they are and what they want. I?d like someone who is balanced?maybe they like to eat healthy, but they can also eat a brownie without feeling like they want to jump off a cliff after (can?t. take. the. guilt!!!). Ok, ok?I guess I couldn?t choose just one thing! I know, cheater cheater.
The first thing people notice about me
I have no idea what to write on here that doesn?t make me sound like a big dork. I have to admit, I?m tempted to copy and paste the cutesy thing someone else wrote and eHarmony posted on the side of here that says, ?something a great eHarmony member might write.? But that would be wrong?. uh, right? Hmm? so I guess I don?t know the answer on this one. You?ll have to let me know if we meet!
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Family & Friends.... nothing matters more than people and health. And for any opportunity to travel-- I love experiencing new cultures, great food, and diverse people.
- For people who stand up for what they believe in... even if I disagree with what they believe in. And for people who fight battles that aren't necessarily theirs to fight, but they do it anyway.... just because it's the right thing to do.
- All the small things-- like sunsets and fresh sheets, good TV (love me some Dexter!) a steaming cup of tea, kind strangers and strawberry Haagen Dazs....
Friends Describe me as
Caring, Funny, Intelligent, Loyal
A little more about me
This is my first time trying online dating, but has anyone else noticed that mostly everyone claims to be rock-climbing, triathon-racing, Iron Man training active? C?mon, are people really THAT active?! I like being active, but I also really enjoy my downtime. I love having a glass of wine with friends, or just staying in and watching some good TV or movies and cooking. I love trying new recipes. Also FYI, I?m a pretty liberal person. I guess I just want to throw that out there because? well, basically, if you loooove? say Glenn Beck, you and I might not be the best match. Well, gotta wrap it up. I have a triathalon to train for. ;-)
