7/25/14 -- I'm a work in progress, but aren't we all? I've lost 50+ lbs. recently and counting, but always awesome. Put some new pics up, check it!
6/10/14 -- I haven't been all that busy on this site as of late. Been focusing more on myself (lost a good amount of weight recently with more to go so yay me! will post new pics soon) and trying to spend more time with family and friends. As the summer gets underway I wouldn't mind meeting someone cool to pass the time with. Mesmerizing kissers go straight to the front of the line, so if ya like what ya read, apply today for this amazing offer!
7/30/13 -- So I had a discussion with my boss about relationships and he was telling me to date within my culture. So I've been giving that some thought and I've come to realize that I should be dating within the geek culture. I am a comic book geek myself, not a gamer, though I do like strategy games, but when I date men who are not into things like Star Wars, ZOMBIES!, GoT, comic books, other geek stuff (like being an actual geek fixated on a particular hobby), whatever, we tend to have little in common. So, where all my geeks at?! Come hither!!
I love meeting new people and dating can bring out the bizarre in all of us, but sometimes bizarre can be fun! I like party games a lot (Taboo, Name 5, Apples to Apples, Pictionary, Cranium, Scattergories, Cards Against Humanity, I own a lot of party games). Has anyone ever heard of Robo Rally though? I am trying to find more people interested in playing this game. Who's with me? I even carry this game around in my trunk cause you never know!
I am originally from the DC area - a Maryland suburb to be exact - but have been in FL since 2003. My whole family now lives in FL and we are pretty close. I value closeness with one's family and find I relate better to people that also share this characteristic.
I am gainfully employed, I'm a homeowner who is very crafty at renovations (Next big project is building a two level detached deck overlooking the lake in my backyard! Gotta wait till my dad recovers from back surgery first. Once finished, it will be glorious.), and I own two cars because I'm not quite ready to get rid of my high mileage sports car just yet. I have two cats and a group of friends that I love to do random and planned things with. We all like deals and discounts - we're not cheap, but saving money is being responsible right? Right??
Now onto some fun lists!
I like (in no particular order):
-shooting pool (8 ball mostly, trying to reclaim the title of sidepocket Stacey!)
-making beaded jewelry
-tennis (yeah, i suck but it's still fun)
-cars (I own two)
-getting my hands dirty
-meeting new people
-woodworking (i suck at using these right now but i have a scroll saw and a mini-lathe)
-trying new things
-cooking (i'm pretty spectacular in the kitchen)
-all kinds of (ethnic) food -- mmm sriracha!
I don't like:
-sushi (sorry I know it's the new chicken
but not a fan of roe or seaweed)
-people that drive the speed limit in the left lane (not cool!)
-religion that thinks it can tell me I am sinful or amoral/immoral
-when people re-state the obvious in online forums
-most politically conservative ideology (lack of consistency in beliefs is the issue here)
-read a lot -- magazines, newspapers, fiction, non-fiction
-like to talk about anything and everything
-like to have good conversations (serious, goofy, funny, political, religious, sarcastic, you name it I'll have it)
-like to write things (and then expand in parentheses)
Politics and religion are sticklers for me – I am very liberal and non-religious (though I was raised Jewish and still feel somewhat of a connection to it). I identify as atheist. I'm at a point in my life where I have no interest in dating someone who is either religious or politically conservative, specifically socially conservative. If you are spiritual and believe in god, that's ok, though not preferable, because I understand the need some have to believe, but if you subscribe to organized religion, that is no bueno with me.
If you are against equality for LGBT folk, a racist, a bigot, don’t respect a woman’s right to choose, or lack consistency in your beliefs, please move on.
I find creativity, intelligence and a sense of humor very sexually attractive features. An attractive smile is a turn on! I also enjoy witty repartee so if all you can talk about is sports or cars (and mind you, i like cars, i own 2)...zzzz.
I like to think I am true to myself and my beliefs. I am looking for someone that knows who they are and where they are going. Please have some substance, goals, desires, ideas to share, personal philosophy, whatever. In short, please be real.
I am inquisitive, sapiosexual, and goofy.
Though I am very verbose (and even long winded =) in this profile, I recall numerous instances throughout my lifetime where I have dated men who exclaimed after our first make out session, something along the lines of, well, you are so full of energy and kind of silly and goofy a lot of the time, I just wasn't expecting all that passion. Believe it. Bad kissing is for suckers, and not the good kind.
Lastly, I have been using the app for awhile but had to log in via computer to rotate a pic, and happened to glance at the personality markers that I think are a result of the tests. And wow, most of that is so not me, so I don't put too much stock into the personality part of this profile and politely request the same courtesy. Instead, get to know me!
