I have been living in the Philadelphia area for 10 years - originally from Calif/Colo. I teach health/physical education to middle schoolers - also, have done a lot of coaching over the years. I'm an easy going person, loyal, family-oriented, sensitive, optimistic, patient, affectionate, have a good sense of humor - like to make people feel comfortable. One of the things I'm really looking for in a man (along with shared faith) is someone I love to talk with - where conversation is easy, fun, interesting, and we enjoy making the other feel good. I'd love someone who is sensitive, works through conflict, enjoys some of the same things I do, and is dependable. Some of the things I enjoy doing are playing guitar, outdoor activities like golf, tennis, camping, being near and in water, traveling basically anywhere (have been to may different places, but would love to get to Finland some day as that's a large part of my heritage). I also enjoy reading, spending time with family, watching sports (TV or going to games), hanging out with friends, organizing the "stuff" of life, movies (rent or out), playing pool and board games. My faith is important to me - I'm somewhat private about it until I get to know someone better, than open up. I have been a Christian since an early age. It has been quite a journey - learning what it means to submit to God as the Lord of my life. I've hit bumps along the road, but God has always been there as I reach out to Him.
