Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I just moved to Tampa in Nov of 2012 and am still learning the
area. I have two great kids that are getting more independent by
the day and I have two of the cutest rescue dogs you can find. All
in all a great little group at my place.
Over the last year I have started running 5k mud runs and I teach
TaeKwonDo. In Nov of 2013, I finished the Tough Mudder and I am
very proud of that. I also love to scuba, snorkel, hit the
beach/pool and I want to learn more about the water sports around
Other than that I am what a lot of women do not want. I am
consistent, reliable, smart and funny with a great job I love. Oh
wait. Those are the things they DO say they want. What I am not is
6'3 with a swimmers build. If you want physical perfection I wish
you the best of luck. I teach tae kwon do, go rafting, play Airsoft
(it's like paintball) and I love a day of kayaking but I am not a
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I spend most of my free time raising my two kids. The things I do
around that are working at a technical job, training and teaching
martial arts, lots of photography and weekend trips when I can
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am really good at being good. :-)
I have been a black belt for half my life so I am pretty good at a
few styles of martial arts.
I am a pretty good photographer specializing in (you guessed it!)
martial artists but I shoot just about anything that I can see.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My presence. I have been told I make a wave when I come in a room
and I don't think they are just talking about my size. I am very
confident and I believe it shows.
The things I have been told people notice are my eyes and lips. My
eyes because I hold eye contact a lot and my lips because "they
make a perfect cupids bow". Apparently that is something women
notice because I never did.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Many lives, Many Masters. -- it changed my world.
Anything by Robert Jordan or Reymond Feist
Movies -- I go to the drive in at least once a month. I love
whatever I see there. Other than that I like action and comedy and
can only be found in a chick flick if my date really wants to see
it. Sometimes not even then. I guess I get enough drama in the real
TV -- I watch very little of the classic network shows. The rare
exception right now is Big Bang Theory. For the most part my tv
(when its on) stays on H2, Discovery, DIY, etc.
I like simple foods. Highly exotic foods usually irritate me. It's
not that I don't eat them, I just don't go out of my way for it.
There is nothing wrong with just eating what you love and I love
Mexican! Granted I can't eat as much of it as I would like it is
always an option.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My toys (computer, iPhone, iPad)
Someone to spoil
A sixth thing to be named later
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I need to do over the next few days, few weeks, months and
occasionally years. I like to plan ahead so I don't get caught off
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either at TaeKwonDo or Pier 60 with my kids.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I am pretty open about everything but no way am I listing it all

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You understand the life of a devoted single parent, love to laugh,
are self-sufficient and like guys that aren't the jealous, clingy
types. One thing that is a deal-breaker for me is that I can't date
a smoker. I can sometimes go into smoky places for live music or
other fun nights out but I couldn't be around it all the time.
