Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a 34 year old BBW in the Dallas area. I work as a middle school
reading language arts teacher and a girl's basketball and softball
coach, I absolutely love it! I recently (July 2015) adopted a dog
from a local shelter. My sweet little doxie is named, Cupcake -
Queen of Sprinkles but, her friends just call her Cupcake.
I enjoy movies (indy, docu-dramas, documentaries, comedies are all
amongst my favorites). I like to cook and bake, one of my 2015
goals is to cook at home more often. I love checking out museums,
going to the zoo, or taking in a performance at Shakespeare in the
Park. I enjoy a night out with family or friends but a night at
home playing board games and exchanging funny anecdotes also has a
special place in my heart.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I finished my masters degree a few years ago in literacy education
and I'm contemplating going back for a PhD.
I'm looking forward to learning new things. Last summer I took a
cooking class, a pottery class and a few jewelry making classes.
I'm hoping to find someone who might want to attend an evening of
glass blowing with me...sounds like an interesting date night,
I recently joined Weight Watchers and have been working out in
conjunction with playing softball once a week with friends in a
social league. I want to be healthier and be a role model for my
students and the athletes I coach.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
A few years ago, I learned that I'm pretty good with a blow torch!
One might ask themself..how would she know this? That's an
excellent question..you should ask me. Until then..look who has an
aire of mystery about them? :)

I've received a few compliments about my smile and my eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: There's a lot of them, but a good majority of them are young
adult fiction, since I'm always on the lookout for things to use in
our curriculum at school. I do a good deal of nonfiction reading
for work and enjoyment.
Movies: Also a long list..top five though.. Love Actually, The
Breakfast Club, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (the original
is the best), 50/50, The Upside of Anger. Lately, I've been drawn
to older classic and cult classic movies. I love the Alamo
Drafthouse for this reason. Taking my six year old nephew to see ET
on the big screen was epic. He loved it!
Music: I like a little bit of everything...my play list when
driving home includes John Mayer (my secret boyfriend), Billy Joel,
a variety of nostalgic hits from the past, Sara Bareilles, Jason
Mraz, a collage of top 40 hits and country music.
Shows: Big Bang Theory, Law & Order SVU, How to Get Away With
Murder, How I Met Your Mother, The Goldbergs, Modern Family, The
Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, 20/20, Dateline.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I could probably live without these things, but I don't want
1. Game nights with friends and family (we're a highly competive
group of people)
2. Conversation (I love talking to people and learning about their
lives and thoughts)
3. Handbags (they're not only functional, they're cute)
4. Curling up under the blankets, cat napping while watching old
movies when the weather is cold or rainy
5. Yellow cake with chocolate icing (it's classic)
6. Creative outlets (writing, cooking, painting, jewelry making,
creating things for my classroom, etc.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My future, long term goals, and how to get over my terrible stage
fright. I almost fainted when I let my best friend (our school's
music teacher) talk me into singing in the school talent show. Put
me in front of 30 kids to teach writing, no problem. Put me on a
stage to perform or even present an award or speech and I almost
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
On Friday nights I'm usually watching tv, out at the movies, having
dinner with friends or family and I might be found perusing for
books at Half Price.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Shamefully, a few years ago I told my students that one of our pet
hamsters died from being sick and the vet couldn't do anything to
save him. I didn't have the heart to tell them that Mario actually
killed his brother, Luigi. Last thing we needed was rampant fear
that a killer was amongst us. In the teacher's lounge, Mario became
known as, "Murder Hamster".
I can't deal with people who don't know how to use punctuation. I
get it, it's a text message...but there's no hard, fast rule that
says you can't follow punctuation and capitalization rules.
Remember, "let's eat grandpa!" means something completely different
than "let's eat, grandpa." Don't look like a cannibal.
You should message me if

You should message me if you're a goal oriented, intelligent guy
with a good sense of humor, and you'd like to fall victim to the
