Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am (in a few quick words) Spontaneous, energetic, sarcastic,
animated, mischievous, and passionate.
I'm very friendly, and quite talkative. If someone else was
describing me, they would probably say that I've never really met a
stranger. I'll talk to basically anyone.
I'm goofy, and love to laugh.
I love to karaoke, and I'm definitely the girl you laugh at for
dancing in her car. What fun is life if you spend it always being
I love to travel, and will jump on the opportunity to see new
places any day. I went to Spain in 2009, and that was by far my
favorite vacation. In 2010 I flew to California to take a road trip
across the country with someone I'd never met before. We hit 9
states in 5 days, saw a lot of really awesome stuff, including
Vegas (popped my gambling cherry), The Grand Canyon, Sandia
Heights, Roswell, NM, etc... I'm trying to broaden my horizons and
take one trip a year. 2014 was San Diego. We'll see where 2015
I'm definitely a huge nerd. I love playing board games and nerdy
card games and I've done a few conventions such as Dragoncon and
Days of the Dead. It's been a while, but I'm up for checking out
some smaller cons again. The bigger stuff has gotten tiresome as I
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Getting ready to start the next chapter.. :) Currently working at a
manufacturing firm in customer service, but relocating to Asheville
in about 3 weeks. We'll see what's next when I get here full
I love to be outdoors! I love kayaking, and over the last few years
I've rekindled my relationship with the rivers. There are few
places that do a better job of curing whatever ails me. I'd rather
kayak than just about anything on a pretty day.
I try to get in some board games or card games whenever I can.
We've grown a pretty expansive collection over the last few years.
It's getting a little out of hand, but it's pretty awesome. I just
have a hard time finding people to actually play these with.
I don't have any kids, but it's important to know that my roommate
has two kids that live with us, and they are a very important part
of my life. I love them, and I love being around them. If you just
plain don't like kids, we probably aren't a good match.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Dealing with difficult situations, and working with dogs.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I need to read more. Just haven't had the time in a long time. The
extensive library in my house should keep me busy for a few
I love movies, good and extremely bad. The list of good movies is
extensive, because I have seen many. A good B movie is just good
for the soul.
TV-let's not get started. Nerdy just about anything. Doctor Who is
by far my favorite. Lots of other stuff is out there that I like,
everything from Agents of SHIELD to Grey's Anatomy to Orange is the
New Black. My guilty pleasure is the Bachelor / Bachelorette /
Bachelor Pad. It's absolute trash and I know it. But for some
reason... we're all allowed a vice, right?
Music-eclectic taste is me. I like a little of everything, sans
metal and super country. I love classical, folk, pop, oldies... My
iHeart stations include (this is just a few) Great Big Sea, Howard
Shore, Band of Horses, Shiny Toy Guys, Edward Sharpe & the
Magnetic Zeros, and DaVinci's Notebook.
Food is good. I love Mexican. I love cooking from scratch. I'm good
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I used to have an answer, but after years of experience, picking 6
things is ludicrous. Until you go without something, there is no
way any of us will understand whether or not we can go without it.
I'd prefer not to go without a lot of things... but I've learned
that sometimes we are not given the choice. So what, do we just
give up if we're without these things?
One thing I really can't go without having at least one dog.
Currently, I have two, and I'm pretty smitten with my dogs.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How life never turns out the way we expect but how everything
eventually will eventually be okay.
How to appreciate the small things in life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Trying not to be typical.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Something you should definitely know about me before messaging me:
I am, as of September 7th, 2014, a widow. I met my husband on this
website. He was the love of my life and my world. I'm not ready to
rush into anything just yet. I've been on a few dates and attempted
to get back out there, but I'm still learning how to date again and
I can be a little bit of a nervous wreck. I will probably say and
do the wrong things because it's all pretty scary to be getting
back out there, but try and be patient with me. I am open to
finding something special and I deserve happiness.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're looking for someone awesome to get to know, particularly if
you enjoy in person board or card games, flat water kayaking, and
I'd like to meet interesting people who I can connect with. I enjoy
a good conversation, so a good opening statement is probably in
