Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I know what you're thinking; A single mother with TWO kids?? Where
do I sign up?
Am I right?
Allow me to try to sell myself, as these things are meant to do,
and outline why I am actually quite awesome (well, no, maybe not
AWESOME, but a bit of all right at the least?)
I use proper grammar
I love 90s nostalgia
My kids are delightfully funny and all around AWESOME
I like sports AND video games
I laugh at inappropriate humor
Far from a neophobe, I love trying new things
I am not a typical, clingy woman, nor am I proud or boastful in my
I laugh when I'm nervous
I can't dance but I like to try, if only to get some laughs
British humor = love
I don't feel like life is done with me yet
I feel like there is a reoccurring theme in my dating life. I seem
to get overwhelmed by clingy, needy men. The best fit, for me, is
someone who is okay with having some separate interests and doesn't
feel the need to spend every waking moment together. I personally
value my time to myself like none other, considering I get so
little of it.
I am exceedingly honest. Brutal, perhaps. Above all else, I value
candor. I don't wear make-up because I am not hiding who I am in
any way. This is me. I appreciate the same from any relationship in
my life, romantic or otherwise.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working and being a mom for now, and planning on going back to
school. Finding the fun and humor in life as much as possible. I've
learned that the greatest joy of having kids is having an excuse
to, in a sense, be a kid once more.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being a mom, or at least I hope I'm pretty good at it! It's the
biggest responsibility I've ever undertaken. I also think I'm
pretty good at helping people and giving advice. I love
photography, even if I'm not good at it. I also took up running not
too long ago and it's kinda my thing now.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm short as hell. You know what is cool? Being 5' 3" when no one
else in your family is under 5' 6". Yeah, that's fun...

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My girls, music, books, running, my camera and laptop
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I know the typical answer is "my future", and I hate to cop out,
but it's all I can think of!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably just relaxing at home on the internets. When my girls are
at their dad's I usually go out with my sister and her husband
(third wheel much?) but not into the bar or club scene.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am enjoying the current trend of late 80's-early 90's clothes
making a comeback, though from a distance. Me, wearing stirrup
pants again? No thanks.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Well, if you're not put off by my kids, that's the most important
thing. I think perhps someone WITH kids would be an even better
match for me but it's not a "requirement". Drop me a line. Nothing
wrong with at least making some friends, right?
