I am primarily looking for friendship, networking and feedback from other people here about their online dating experiences because I blog about internet dating. I am also single and looking for a relationship.
I now work at Checkered Flag Toyota. It has kinda taken over my life but I love driving the vehicles and it's been very interesting learning the car business. We're not paid commission here for sales anymore which basically means when it comes to the posted prices, what you see is what you get! It feels like a more honest way to do business, plus we now sell more than just Toyota! Come in and ask for Jaclyn if you're shopping for a new car or want to sell your car. (We'll buy your car even if you don't buy one of ours!)
ABOUT ME: Affectionate, playful, adventurous; I enjoy trying new things and being very active, especially outdoors. I'm low maintenance, level headed. I think too much, have too many ideas for one lifetime of implementing them and while I crave simplicity and a streamlined life, I tend to over-think pretty much everything and am genuinely interested in almost everything. Since I'm a writer, that is both a curse and a blessing.
For you personality test people: ESTJ. (This describes me perfectly.)
I'm a home owner and with that comes the joy and daunting task of landscaping and keeping up my yard and remodeling my home. Fortunately I grew up using tools, am a quick learner and would prefer to spend a $500 gift card at Home Depot rather than at the mall. As long as I'm not doing it solo, I enjoy re-shingling a roof or using a compound miter saw to install base boards and crown molding just as much as I enjoy a night on the town. Seriously. I really enjoy it. I have more tools than a lot of guys do.
I'm confident, but fully aware of my flaws. A lifetime of self improvement is not just a good idea, it should be a requirement for everyone. Like water, you're either moving forward, changing form or stagnating. And everyone knows stagnating water is gross.
I tend to be unconventional and consider myself an eclectic person. I’m thankful for a unique upbringing and various life experiences which have taught me to keep a positive roll-with-the-punches attitude and to maintain a determined and hopeful perspective of life. Life is 1% what happens and 99% how you deal with it.
I typically have a cheerful attitude and it takes a lot to get me angry. Although injustice, parents who smoke and people who are outright cruel, think they're superior to others or are "owed" what they haven't earned get me riled up. Fairness, honesty and being a contributing member of society matter a great deal to me.
I trust my gut instincts and am typically a very good judge of character. I am deeply loyal to my family and good friends. I believe in being kind to strangers and the definition of a person's character is how they treat someone who can do nothing for them.
Clever wordplay and playful banter are fun and a good debate about a serious topic is great now and then as long as it stays friendly. Intelligence, self-sufficiency, articulation and ambition turn me on just as much as a fit body. I only ask for in return what I offer.
