*I have pictures posted on another website but OKCupid wouldn't let me upload them so if you want to know what I look like, you can check out pof.com - Plenty of Fish - or you can request a photo and I'll send one.
I am returning to this website in hopes of finding the right match. My last relationship started here and lasted nearly two years so I believe it is possible to meet someone special online. I know it sounds cliché but I'm looking to meet someone to share my life with and who will become my best friend...I don't need a diamond ring and a white picket fence but I want my own happily ever after.
My new tactic on here is to meet people in person as soon as there's a connection. We can decide if we "hit it off" and want to pursue something or just move on in different directions. Also, I don't play games - either you like me or you don't - just be upfront about it and I will do the same for you.
I have a bubbly personality but I can be shy at first. I’m very articulate and perceptive and I'm a survivor - I've overcome many obstacles in life and I’m a stronger person for it. I'm determined and I persevere and I'm always up for a challenge. If something is worth doing, it's worth fighting for and pursuing whole-heartedly. No matter what adversity I'm presented with, I deal with it. As a result of the negative experiences, I am more grateful and appreciative of the positive ones.
I'm a loyal friend and always willing to help out a friend in need. If I'm comfortable in a situation, I enjoy discussing anything from the mundane to controversial or philosophical issues. I like to engage in intellectually stimulating conversation.
I'm also stubborn but not to the point where I have to have my way all the time and I will admit when I'm wrong.
I spend my free time hanging out with family and friends. I enjoy listening to music, trampolining, swimming, hiking, rock climbing, board games, and ice skating. I also enjoy activities that provide an adrenaline rush - roller coasters, high ropes courses, trapeze...anything that involves spinning or flipping. Activities I'd like to try at some point include skydiving, para-sailing, snorkelling, and scuba diving.
I don't like the bar/clubbing scene and if you’re into heavy drinking, you’re not my type. I spend my time doing things I enjoy with the people I want to be around and I'd choose a small intimate gathering over a huge party any day.
