Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am not fond of profiles that start off by announcing what it is
one does not like, so it pains me to have to resort to it myself.
Sometimes I will receive such a great opening note or read an
interesting profile, so naturally I delve further under the
"questions" tab. How frustrating it is when I see only a few
questions answered. It matters not at all if your follow-up note
says, "feel free to ask whatever you want to know". The questions
ARE part of the vetting process. Who wants to invest time in the
Secondly, the question I first look at above all others is "Should
evolution and creationism be taught side-by-side in school?" When
answered in the affirmative, this is IMO, by far the MOST telling
of questions. It gives SO MUCH insight into one's views on science,
what the word "America" means to you, child-rearing, critical
thinking, value for society and general decision making. I don't
come to my conclusions lazily - and I honestly just could not have
respect for a mind that would promote such nonsense.
With that said, ...
I moved to SC from Pittsburgh three years ago. Climate was a high
priority to me at the time, but I didn't realize just how difficult
it would be finding suitable romantic prospects in this area with
whom I could actually consider lasting partnership. I've always
known I was choosing from the wading pool, but with this move, I am
inclined to believe I'm in a jacuzzi.
With me there is always a handful of projects ongoing. I thrive on
being inspired and supported. I am not afraid of hard physical or
mentally demanding work. You'll find me to be an analytical and
deep thinker. I don't "try" to be, I just am. If you are too,
you'll know exactly what I mean. I am a natural skeptic and I
question everything and I'm driven to find solutions. I am not
above compromise and will frequently take the short end of the
stick just to move beyond something.
I generally like most people I meet and they generally like me.
Being a very social person comes naturally to me. I have a wide net
of friends from various political, religious and socioeconomic
backgrounds, BUT that doesn't mean I want to feel their breath on
my neck for the foreseeable future. My man will enjoy stimulating
conversation, have similar political ideologies and subscribe to no
religious, magical or superstitious views. I want a real man
grounded in the real world.
I am the mother of two adult children and an nine year old son that
I adopted as a single woman. I prefer men that are selfless,and
polite. Gentlemen that understand what it means to be concerned
with things beyond their personal interests.

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'd be remiss if I didn't say my hair color. It is not at all
unusual for people, whom I am talking to for the first time, to say
they've seen me before. I've even received mail on OKCupid telling
me they saw me here or there. I see the glow in the eyes of teen
girls when they come up to talk to me. Occasionally people will ask
me if they can touch it (I don't think they understand right away

If I go to the elementary school, the children will come up to me a
give a hug. If I go to the grocery stores the elderly will
undoubtedly ask for my assistance. I always go introduce myself to
any new neighbors. At the places I shop, people treat me like a

me their opinions as to what I should be! Typically these strangers
usually suggest such things as spokesperson, educator, actress that

Television for me is whatever happens to be on for the most part. I
really don't have any idea about schedules of particular shows. I
am more of a web reader of blogs and Reddit. I enjoy keeping
abreast of world news.
Movies: I don't have the opportunity to see many adult genre new
releases. But as for oldies, I will never pass up the chance to see
Love Actually, Goodfellas, The Great Santini, Same time Next Year,
The Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind, 9 to 5, Die Hard-whenever
they are available. These are just a few that pop into my mind.
Really, really enjoyed Mr. Nobody.
Music- My Favorite Artists: Marvin Gaye, Van Morrison, Steely Dan,

Dylan and I have a fond affection for soulful women with powerful
vocal chords like Gladys Knight, Lauryn Hill, Joss Stone, Amy
Winehouse to name a few.
