words to describe you

Energetic, driven and empathetic.

Favorite hobbies:

Watching and playing sports, especially volleyball. I love to cook and bake — my favorites include chocolate chip cookies, meatballs, pasta and mashed potatoes! So naturally, I love eating all of my favorites! I also love to travel, even though I haven't done much of it!

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of?

Not to sound cliché, but coming out and being proud of who I truly am to my friends and family, especially in a conservative Minnesota county, was one of my proudest accomplishments. I'm also really proud of where I am at with my career at only age 23.

What scares you most about traveling?

I think what scares me most about traveling is the language barrier, as well as getting lost and not knowing where I am is a little unsettling.

What excites you most about traveling?

I can't wait to see different cultures and experience the different ways that people live all over the world! To me that will be truly unforgettable, as it will open my eyes to things I haven't experienced before!

How many serious relationships have you been in?

It really depends how you consider "serious." I have been in five relationships, but none have gone longer than a year. Hopefully that will change soon!

What are your deal breakers in a relationship?

I can't date anyone that smokes, does drugs, has poor personal hygiene or has a tendency to cheat and lie.

What are the top three qualities you are looking for in a mate?

A good personality, has a good sense of humor and someone who makes me feel special and loved. I love nothing more than for my partner to make me laugh and smile each and every day!

What are three turn offs or pet peeves in a mate?

Smoking/bad breath, poor personal hygiene and bad kisser.

Who is your celebrity crush?

Can't just pick one, so ... Channing Tatum, Tom Daley and Zac Efron. I may be gay, but Jennifer Aniston is on the list too!

What famous person reminds you of yourself?

A mix between the following: Ellen DeGeneres, Oprah and Melissa McCarthy! Just wait till you meet me and the answer will explain itself!

What country and place would you most like to visit and why?

This is such a hard question, but one that tops the list would be Bergen, Norway! Anywhere in Europe or Australia too!
