Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm honestly not sure whether this will work, but I have a couple
friends who have had some success with this, so I figured I'd give
it a try.
As for me, I a pretty laid back kind of person. I try not to take
life too seriously. I believe in having fun and spending time with
wonderful people. I am a very loyal person, and value this quality
in others. I love to laugh, and really enjoy a good, harmless
practical joke, whether I am playing it on someone else, or if
someone is playing one on me. I definitely don't take myself too
seriously, and I can absolutely take a joke. I have a good sense of
humor and, if the stars are aligned just right, I can be pretty
witty... hee hee.
I consider myself to be a pretty intelligent person, but sometimes
the blonde-ness in me comes out, and I can be a little flighty.
It's ok - I own it :-). I try my best to be a good person, but just
like the rest of the world, I am not perfect. I make mistakes. I
don't regret the mistakes I have made, but I do try my best to
learn from them (sometimes that's more easily said than
OK... since this is just supposed to be a summary, I will end here
and answer the other questions this website will undoubtedly ask.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I currently work in higher education in Charlotte, NC. I really
enjoy what I'm doing, and plan to do some version of it for the
rest of my career.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Typing - I am an excellent typer... haha!! Actually, I think I am
really good at talking to people and helping people. I have been
told many times that I am an easy person to talk to, and, for some
reason, people tell me very intimate things about themselves. I
take it as a complement, and I take it very seriously. It's because
of this that I tend to be a very trustworthy person - and I am VERY
good at keeping a secret.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My blue eyes and my blonde hair (yes, they are both natural). I
think people also notice my non-judgmental and open attitude. I
will pretty much talk to anyone and talk about anything. I don't
really shy away from any topic. I think that's a good thing, and I
wish more people were like that. However, I will admit that it
sometimes forces me to put my foot in my mouth. I wouldn't change
it for anything, though.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My favorite books include, Harry Potter, Stephen King, and anything
supernatural (except Stephanie Meyer - she had destroyed the legend
of the vampire!!).
My favorite movies/TV include anything Sci Fi or Supernatural as
well. I love anything with vampires (minus Twilight), ghosts,
witches, aliens, etc.
As for music, I like a lot of Top 40 stuff, but some older stuff
(now): Britney, Madonna, Janet, Mariah, Michael Jackson. I enjoy a
lot of pop music and anything I can dance to, but I also really
enjoy anything with really good lyrics. One of my favorite artists
that most people have not heard of is Poe - her music is amazing,
and her lyrics are astounding!!!
As for food, I'm pretty much a meat and potatoes kind of guy. I
admit that I do not eat as healthy as I should, but that is
something that I am currently trying to change.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My CDs (iPods are too unreliable)
My stereo (I gotta play the CDs on something)
My laptop (so I could continue writing)
My friends (I'm going to count them all as 1)
An endless bottle of wine
(I'll leave the 6th slot open for emergencies :-)).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend a lot of time thinking about story ideas. I write as a
hobby, and I have a lot of ideas in my head for some really great
stories - I just need to get them out of my head.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
This question is pretty hard, because I don't know that I have ever
really had a "typical" Friday night. Every Friday night is
different. Sometimes I am clubbing with friends, sitting at a bar
with friends, sitting on a back porch with friends, and sometimes I
am just sitting at home with a good book or whatever is on my Tivo.
All of this can change at the drop of a hat as well.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I enjoy the Disney channel. OK... there... I've said it. It is my
guilty pleasure. I think it's because the shows are so bad that
it's like watching a house burn down. But, whatever the reason, if
there is nothing else on TV, I will, inevitably, turn to the Disney
channel. Please don't judge me... eh, what the heck... judge away,
I can take it!! Hahaha!!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You should message me if you are a good person; if you are someone
who is looking for something long-term. I don't know yet if I'm
looking for forever, but I know I am looking for something that
will go past the first or second date. I don't want to say that
looks are not important, but that is not the only thing I am
looking for. However, I need to be attracted to the person I am
dating - however, I really don't have a "type" and could
potentially be attracted to anyone. I am also looking for someone
who is loyal and honest - I absolutely do NOT put up with liars,
and I promise to give you the same respect. I would like to be with
someone I can have a conversation with, whether we agree with each
other or not. I don't want someone just like me; that would be
boring. I like differences, and I feel that differences in people
only complement each other.
I'm sure there are other things, but I want to leave some things
for us to talk about later ;-).
Who are you looking for?
