37, Waddington, NY
I am an adventurous, fun-loving, caring single woman with a deep commitment to traditional Catholic values. My experiences in the Peace Corps and Americorps have contributed to my love of travel, ethnic foods, and serving others. I love to dance and do yoga (I know, controversial - I'm open to discussion). A healthy, natural lifestyle is important to me. I love good conversation with friends, strong coffee and good wine (though neither on a daily basis), and spending time with family.
I think life is exciting. For as long as I can remember I have wanted to experience everything (within reason). This coupled with a strong inclination toward service has enabled me to live in a number of places throughout the US and the world. I try to live somewhat like a tourist wherever I am, and I'm always open for adventure, big or small (pretty much everything is an adventure in my book, especially if there's someone to share the event with). I easily connect with people, but I find family to be the most important ones in my life. I was raised in the Catholic Church and have always loved my faith, but in the last few years I have gained a deeper appreciation for the roots of Catholicism steeped in mystery and tradition. Through this, I have also embraced femininity and modesty (I adore vintage clothes). I enjoy learning about random things (but I'm no good at Jeopardy). Other major likes include travel (obviously), dance (all kinds- I think ballroom dancing should be part of High school curriculum), and wandering through flea markets. I also enjoy being outside in nature and in most cases would rather walk than ride (in any weather). I love running around barefoot, but like slipping on some sassy heels. I enjoy cooking (international, or just making it up), but I'll take a fancy restaurant or a hole in the wall if its good! I do place great importance on health, especially through food, but I am not rigid.
While what I have said may make me sound worldly, I am actually more drawn to a simple life. I have been blessed with continuing and even strengthening faith where others have lost theirs (a sad side effect of international work, I've observed). I have lead a wonderful life thus far, but it turns out it's hard to find a good match in this confused, disconnected world, and one's faith deeply matters.
By the way, I don't have internet access at home (so if I don't answer right away, that's why)!
