Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a firm believer in people forming their own opinions about me.
I am my own worst critic.
I am an introverted extrovert. I like staying home and being with
the people I care about (my boys), but I have fun when I do go out
too. I am fast becoming addicted to World of Warcraft. I love to
ski, but I haven't been able to go since I was eighteen.
I am a Navy brat (Go Navy!!!) and spent the first 9 years of my
life in Italy. I love to travel. One of these days I plan to visit
some of the countries I have always wanted to see, but didn't get a
chance to. Topping that list would be England, Ireland, Scotland
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
At this point, I'm living my life day to day. Who knows what the
future will bring.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I love to paint. When I paint, I am able to put aside all my
worries and problems. I can focus on the joy of creating something
special to me. Good or bad, it's mine. I find that I gravitate
towards painting faces with the eyes as a focal point. I truly
believe that the eye is the window to the soul.
I like to open a cookbook and find something new to try. One of the
joys in my life is cooking for the people I care about. I like
making favorite meals and watching faces light up in anticipation.
This has always been one of my small ways of letting friends know I
care without saying a word.
I have found that I really enjoy canning. I love going to the
farmer's market and buying fruits and veggies for this. I must be
doing something right. I have friends and family placing orders for
pickles when I make them again next summer.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Besides the obvious fact that I'm only 5 ft. tall, most people
notice my eyes. They have a tendency to change colors. They change
from brown to a greenish hazel and anything in between.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love to read. I like the fantasy genre mostly. Some authors I
like are Anne McCaffery, Mercedes Lackey, Andre Norton and J. K.
I like the work of Edgar Allan Poe. The dark intensity of his poems
and stories never fail to move me. Some personal favorites are "The
Raven" and "Annabel Lee".
I also like "Animal Farm", "The Importance of Being Ernest" and
"The Charge of the Light Brigade".
I love Linkin Park , Aerosmith, Queen, Puddle of Mudd, AC/DC, some
Coldplay....this list would take too much space. I love music! And,
yes, this list does include classical, opera and some folk music.
That being said....most country tends to make my ears bleed.
I like a lot of different movies. I love vampire/werewolf movies
and most Tim Burton movies. I like anime. I watch more than my fair
share of AZN and BBC. Some new favorite are Sweeney Todd and Pan's
Labyrinth. I like the movies inspired by comics.
Note: Yes. I was a little Goth in my younger years. It seems that I
still lean that way a little. ;)
I like classic cartoons...Still trying to find the third box set to
complete my Thundercat collection. Then I will be working on
Transformers for my oldest son. Yes, you can say it. I am a
I like video and computer games. (Edited for people with their
minds in the gutter!)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My children, love, hope, laughter...still thinking.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Staying home and being with my children.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If I told, it wouldn't be secret....but, if you ask nice, I may
tell. Then again, I may not.

You are not a sleaze.
Update: In the past year, my boys and I have gone through some very
serious heartache. As I tend to be a stress eater, this year has
not been kind to my waist line. I am in the process of trying to
turn this around. If you are a man that cannot see past the surface
of a woman to see the person within, please do not message
Thanks in advance for reading this and respecting it. :)
