Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Taking a time out from dating for a while.
Bottom line if you don't want to read all of this: I'm a cool
chick. I'm looking for a good man to share my life with. I don't do
normal. I have a motorcycle license, I cook, bake, craft like a
fiend, find glitter makes everything better, and am a master of the
maths (although I answered a math question wrong on here). Disney
is my happy place. You should message me.
Now if you'd like to learn more about me... Hey there! I'm Joanna.
I'm a book-loving, passionate, loyal, geeky, Christian, math
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a high school math teacher. Because of my passion for
technology, I'm also my school's webmaster and social media
manager. I have worked hard to achieve a balance in my drive to
succeed at work and my desire to maintain a personal life.
Outside of work, I spend quite a bit of time with my family and
friends. I'm actively searching for a new church home as mine
lacked young adults. While I believe we learn from all ages, I find
having a group of Christians who are in a similar life situation
can be a huge support. In my free time I love to read, hang at
Starbucks, write, go out and about, or complete a random art
project. It's kind of a mixed bag with me. ^_^
Don't let my love of math scare you! My creative side is quite
strong. I decorate cakes and cookies (think Ace of Cakes or Cake
Boss) to pick up some extra cash. I also run a Disney travel blog
that focuses on sharing my travel experiences and helping others
have a better trip to Disney World, my happy place. Ask me, and
I'll be happy to share the URL.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
...crazy fast texting, math, craft projects, cake decorating,
speeding through traffic on my scooter, blogging, coming up with a
sarcastic response, making people laugh, amateur photography,
baking, cooking, organizing, finding beauty wherever I am...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been told my eyes are stunning. I suppose that could be it. :)

Food: I'm willing to try most anything. Raising Canes is my guilty
pleasure. :) Newly in love with sushi since, when I turned 31, I
promised myself I'd try it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
* My iDevices (MacBook Pro, iPad mini, iPhone, Apple TV - I refuse
to count those as 4!)
* My sense of whimsy
* Glitter because life can always use more sparkle
* A good book
* Coke Slurpees
* My shih-tzu, Sprinkles
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
...honestly? How to be better. I'm always reflecting & always
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Why does it have to be "typical?" My nights all have the
possibility of random fun. Fridays usually find me pretty exhausted
from my crazy week, so I enjoy a nice night in with a good book or
some Hulu+. I can be swayed though. ;-)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once fell down a flight of stairs in college, basically sliding
down the entire thing on my backpack in front of half the student
body. When a friend ran to the bottom of the stairs and asked if I
was ok, I exclaimed, "MY CALCULATOR!" because I'd landed on my
backpack. She walked away pretending she didn't know me. -_-
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I am looking for a Christian man who knows how to communicate,
wants a long term relationship (at least dates with that being an
option), and shares my interests and sense of humor. I have a lot
to give, but I'm looking for a man to compliment my life, not
So if my profile appeals to you, drop me a well-written line.
I've been told my profile says I rarely respond... Honestly, it
takes a bit more than "hi" or "you're pretty" to lure me in, and
those are mostly the messages I get. Show me you took time to read
my profile (and noticed I'm a teacher... complete lack of
punctuation & capital letters is a total turn off for me). :-)
I promise that I read the profile of every man who messages me.
