I've been known to impress my friends with my encyclopedic knowledge of movie quotes and trivia. Sitting outside a coffee shop in the summertime and people watching is up there among my favorite things to do. I like sports, hockey especially, and don't really care if you want to spend all Sunday watching football. Trust me, I can occupy myself for the day, and if the Bills are playing I will probably watch and curse with you. (And, of course, say horrible things about Tom Brady if we are playing the Patriots.)
I'm a suburban-raised, SUV-driving, white girl, but I have a secret love of rap music, and still know all the words to Shoop by Salt-n-Pepa. I have a cat that I love, but I still consider myself a dog person. Spring is my favorite time of year; even though I've lived in Buffalo my whole life, I really hate snow. I love a good power nap in the afternoon, and reading in bed on a rainy weekend morning. I've recently become interested in gardening, though right now my flower beds are more of a work in progress. I've also started exercising regularly again, (I'm kind of obsessed with spinning) and trying to be more healthy in general. I don't like to exercise, but I do feel great when I'm done!
A sense of humor is really important to me; if you don't like or get my jokes, or if you don't make any jokes of your own, we might not be a good fit. Life can be ridiculous, and I want to find someone who appreciates those moments as much as I do. As a teacher, education is important to me. You don't have to be brilliant, (I cetainly am not) but I would love to meet someone who enjoys reading as much as I do. While I am not looking for someone to take care of me, I'd like someone whose personality compliments mine, someone who has interests outside of a relationship, but also wants to do things as a couple. I'm pretty happy with how my life is going at the moment, and I can't wait to see what the future holds. If any of this strikes your fancy, send me a message! If worse comes to worse, we can always instate the Barney Stinson Lemon Law.
