Well, enough of that. I'm Paul, but I also go by Rosie. I graduated UC Santa Barabara two years ago and spent those two years attaining my teaching credential at Cal State Fullerton. I am trained to be a middle or high school History teacher, and yes, that means I am a nerd. It also means I'm funny, entertaining and useful for all your knowledge based needs, ie a good pub quiz partner.
As I'm sure you can tell by now, I have a very dry wit. This is useful, because I enjoy making others laugh and finding the lighter side of life. Life's too short to be unhappy.
I currently work as an on call substitute teacher for two school districts, which is great because it means I have a steady amount of work. I am hoping in the near futre to transition to being a full time History teacher.
In the interest of easing some, if only a small portion of your confusion, I think maybe I ought to lay my cards on the table. Here's what I'm looking for in a relationship. First off, I'm looking for a partner, not a follower. I want someone who has her own opinions and hobbies and ideas. I do want to share them, but I don't want someone who changes everything about themselves for the person they are with. I want somebody who I can go out and get into mischief with or stay in and read with. I love going to showings of old movies, so that may be a hazard of dating me, but I also like someone who can appreciate art for art's sake and that's one way to do it. Also, I think intelligence is one of the most attractive traits a person can have. It doesn't have to be book smarts; I've known and worked with people who've come from all walks of life and some of the most clever went through life without any higher education. I'm looking for someone who not only has a good, dry sense of humor, but is also willing to call me on it when I'm being an idiot. In short, and to sum up, I'm looking for someone not to have as mine, but to be a partner with. Life is a journey, and one wants a companion, not a monkey on the back, so to speak.
