A little about me...
I suppose I am a study in opposites -- I am outgoing and have a good sense of humor, but much prefer intimate evenings or dinner with friends to clubs and bars. I am a transplanted Canadian -- born and raised in Toronto and moved here by way of NYC about five years ago. I really like living here in Dallas, notwithstanding the blistering summer heat, and have no plans to leave. I love to cook, I am slender and fairly fit (but not obsessed about it), and like to be outside. When I lived in Canada I enjoyed skiing (both downhill and cross-country) in the winter, and being by the lake in the summer. That's probably what I miss about Canada -- but not enough for me to move back (vacations are enough to get my fix!) That said, I still like to be outdoors as much as possible. I enjoy hiking, walking, I like to work-out but admittedly it's been a bit hit or miss lately. I love cooking, enjoy museums as much as the zoo, movies (out or at home) and dancing. Travel, weekends away, discovering new things, and visiting new places -- always up for a road trip! I love the theater, enjoy the ballet -- I'll watch football or hockey with you, but I'm never going to be a rabid fan. I also enjoy quiet activities -- sitting outside with someone,
About the one I'm looking for...
I would like to find someone who is in a similar place in life -- someone who sees the glass half full, and looks forward to filling the other half. Someone who takes care of themselves (healthy and fit) but isn't obsessive about it. If you know yourself and like that person, are quick to laugh and slow to anger, see life as an adventure and are ready to explore... well, we'll probably get along well!
I'd just like to add...
I have great and abiding Faith. I may not go to church every Sunday but that's more of a matter of circumstance than by design. I mention this, because if you are an atheist or agnostic, well... best of luck to you in your search, but I'm not the girl for you. :)

My Top Interests:
Nature and Outdoors
There's nothing better than the outdoors -- my summers growing up were spent at the lake, or camping. My winters were about skiing (cross-country mostly, but I like downhill, too). And I love hiking and walking in the fall and spring.
Family and Friends
My family is very important to me -- even though they're not geographically close. I adore my kids and we have a lot of fun together, my sister is my best friend. And I love getting together with a bunch of friends over a good meal!
Travel to me is about exploring. It doesn't have to involve a plane -- I love to jump in the car and go on a road trip! I enjoy visiting new cities, new restaurants, new cultures. I've been to parts of Europe but would love to see more. There are also plenty of places I still want to see here in the US and in Canada; and some parts of Asia; and the UK... so many places, so little time!!
