Finally... the Internet has found its true purpose.
Wow. What a girl.
My name is Barbara - am 34 - Irish - have three children and live
alone. I am musical, creative, stubborn - as well as being a bit of

3D/4D - I also write in my spare time. I work in a university in an
I am not your stereotypical single mom nor am I ashamed to be one
as I am totally self-sufficient. I am happy with my children so if
I get a personal relationship in the meantime from this website
then bonus but certainly not a requirement..because I am already
happy alone with the babies!
Having said that, I am still hoping to do that PhD. We have to have
goals and keep that inner drive and motivation for more learning
going.. I had a child previously who died on me and I learned then
5 years ago, the real meaning of inner individual strength and
perseverance. I write blog articles when I stop posting music

teachers that are linked into the history books already.
I’m really good at

being eccentric. I am fairly approachable and can speak
intelligently on a wide range of topics..from knitting to even the
implementation of live electronics Max/MSP patches in surround
sound with Jitter... phew, glad I got that out. :)
In all honesty I like to meet and talk to people. I admit I can be
abrupt and abrasive. I enjoy making people laugh but I will also
inform you that I can be quite off color at times. However, I make
no apology. For most people on internet sites are trying to be
something they are not. I have no such illusions, for I am myself
and that includes Facebook too just as surely as I am in real
And that means you get Full Metal Me...you may like it, you may not
but I can only be myself, with all my virtues as well as faults :)

It takes time to build up - without sounding too egotistical here,

The measure of a person is not based upon the words that they

relationship drama either. I am not good at texting nor do I
