I hate writing these! Originally from Chicago, currently in Victoria, BC - finishing education degree and enjoying the West Coast lifestyle. Outgoing, athletic, adventurous, and honest to a fault. Looking for the same to share coffee, adventures, quiet time, SCUBA diving, and possibly my life with. I love to travel, stay fit, read histories and biographies (and the occasional trashy romance novel while on vacation), meet new people, and try new things.I believe that relationships take work and am willing to put in my share of the effort. I'm comfortable being alone and prefer that to being with someone who can't say the same.
