Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Most of the time I'd rather be in a room full of people than alone
- but I also love to curl up with a good book, and read into odd
hours of the morning. I'm cheerful 98% of the time, I have a major
sweet tooth, I get bored with my nail polish once a week or so, Dr.
Pepper is my drink of choice, and I will swoon at a beautiful
singing voice or an excellent back scratch. :) If you want to know
more about me, read on! Or look at the personality thing. It's
usually pretty accurate. :)
My very wise sister once told me that "You can't just let FATE
decide for you. If you want something to happen then MAKE it
happen!!" I try to live my life by this, and never leave any 'what
ifs'. Life is so much more exciting when you take chances! :)
Also - Don't talk to me just because you're feeling frisky. That's
just awkward for everyone.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living it! I love having random adventures, and learning as much as
possible. I just finished up my second year of teaching 3rd grade,
and am planning on thoroughly enjoying my summer break. :)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening, problem-solving, being a crying shoulder, cheering
people up, singing, school, playing the piano, baking, making new
friends, thinking I'm funny... Umm yeah. Just to name a few random
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Personality - I'm pretty cheerful. I'm always smiling and
Looks - I'm really tall. (No I do not play basketball or
volleyball... or model, although I actually like that last
I do get a lot of compliments on my long hair and my eyes though.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I'm an elementary school teacher, so most of what I read is
juvenile fiction. I like Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, Fablehaven,
Leven Thumps, Divergent, and the Hunger Games series to name a few.
Oh, and the Book of Mormon of course! :)
Movies: So many. I worked at a movie theatre on and off for about 5
years, so I have seen more movies than I could even begin to name.
I like comedies, chick flicks, horror... I'm pretty open-minded,
mostly. It just depends on who I'm watching it with. ;)
Shows: Gilmore Girls, Once Upon a Time, Vampire Diaries, How I Met
Your Mother, Supernatural, Switched at Birth, Haven... too many to
keep up with!
Music: Music is my life. I like country, pop, top 40 stuff... But I
also love making music. :) I played the violin for a long time, but
it's been a few years since I've played. I love to sing, and I've
also been playing the piano for over 13 years now. When life gets
too hard or I need a pick-me-up, I go right to the piano. It works
every time. :)
Some favorites - Imagine Dragons, The Lumineers, Fun., Owl City,
Taylor Swift, Bastille, Sam Smith.
Food: My favorite is Italian, and I don't like seafood. But overall
I'm not too picky.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Family -They mean the world to me. I've moved around a ton, and
it's taught me that family will always be there to keep you strong
even when you feel like no one else can.
2. Friends - I am super social and tend to get pretty restless when
I'm not surrounded by people.
3. Love - and not only romantic love. That's definitely nice, but
it's also very important to me to feel that of friends and family
and God's love for me as well.
4. Happiness and Laughter - "Life is to be enjoyed, not just
endured!" -Gordon B. Hinckley
5. My church and beliefs - This is a huge part of who I am. I know
that I am an infinitely better person with these things in my life
than I would be otherwise.
6. Music - Life is just so much better with a soundtrack! :)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Life in general. I wonder a lot about the man I'll someday meet,
love, and marry... as well as what my future family will be like. I
think a lot about how to become my best self; someone that not only
others, but also I and God will be proud of. I try my best to cheer
people up and serve others at every given opportunity.
At this point in my life I am mostly spending time thinking about
how to tackle all of my ambitions. Some, like school and teaching,
I already have. But it's never too late to keep moving forward!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Friday is, like, the one day that I don't have set plans. I would
probably be watching TV and staying up way too late or out doing
something silly with friends. Whatever pops up, really. :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
This isn't a secret, but I do belong to the Church of Jesus Christ
of Latter-Day Saints (The LDS, or Mormon faith). Feel free to ask
me about it. :) On a related note: that does not mean that I am ok
with you attacking me or ridiculing me for my beliefs. I will not
push them on you, so I ask the same in return. Also- my religion is
very important to me, and you can call me picky or close-minded,
but I don't date outside of it.
Other than that, if you want to know something just ask. I might
You should message me if

you find me interesting or just want to chat!
I will admit I'm not very good at answering messages. I got
overwhelmed today with how full my inbox was, so I deleted
everything. 225 messages later... I'm sorry if one was yours!
Saying something more than "hi" or "hey" will improve the chances
of me responding. Calling me any variation of sexy, hot or gorgeous
in your opening line will decrease them. Picking a fight with me
about my religion will probably just get you ignored. Are we on the
same page? Good. :)
